I enjoyed the plot, and the easy flow of the story. I was intrigued by these characters and their secrets; their uniqueness, and how the two assassins worked together as a team, their differences complimenting and contrasting each other.
Very little backstory is given on the characters or the setting and system of government they live in, however, through the first half of the book—and hinted at just vaguely enough that sometimes I found it a little frustrating. I felt I couldn't establish a foundation to build the experience on.
However, those details eventually came out from the shadows, taking shape enough to advance the story and deepen the plot. And, ultimately, I enjoyed it very much and needed no encouragement to keep reading. The various perspectives were written well, without jumping around too much.
My only true disappointment was a scene I considered to be rather climactic was instead glossed over with very little reaction from our girl assassin. Not wanting to spoil what that moment was, I won't go into details.
To wrap this up, I did not want to finish reading only because I don't like having to wait for the next book! Though not a stand-alone story, there is no dramatic, cliff-hanger ending... but the story is far from over, and I am anxious to see where it leads next!
Personally the characters were my favorite part of this book. Kat and Ed were really great characters and I loved their relationship. Their friendship and loyalty to each other felt like one of the strongest elements of this novel to me. Also can I just say that I love how simple their nicknames are to pronounce? I love fantasy stories, but they often leave me feeling clueless about how some of the names are supposed to be pronounced. It feels like it’s kind of a staple for the genre, but I really hate it when I’m not sure how to pronounce the protagonist’s name. Kat and Ed as nicknames were rather refreshing for a fantasy.
The rest of the characters were great too. All of them were interesting and I’d like to learn more about them, so hopefully we’ll get to see them again in the next book.
All in all, this was an enjoyable novel and I look forward to seeing where the story and characters will go in the next installment.
