Angry Robot Books has made the decision to discontinue both Strange Chemistry and Exhibit A imprints effective immediately. Among the titles effected is te Assassins Curse duology by Cassandra Rose Clarke.
I had Assassins Curse in my wishlist on Amazon for months, maybe even a year. I bought it December 26, 2014 and when I went online to get the sequel on January 8, 2015 it was gone. Luckily they still had the paperback in stock.
I am so happy that I caught it. I would have been entirely disappointed is I would have not had the chance to finish Ananna and Naji’s story.
I could tell early on that Ananna didn’t have much of a formal education. But don’t underestimate her. She is scrappy, and can hold her own even when the bets are against her. Her parents have decided to marry her off and obviously that not going to happen.. Cue the runaway bride music.
Insert deadly assassin Naji sent after her by the jilted grooms family. A twist later they are forced to join forces. I don’t want to spoil it for those who haven’t read it.
Pirates, Assassins, other-world creatures, witches, wizards, mer-people (sort of) , a mysterious and magical island, a manticore, sprinkle some romance, and a snake in the right place at the right time combine to make this a magical duology.
Much love & Happy Reading
