Buddy flick epic fantasy! The third in the Assassins of Landria series from the award-winning, bestselling author of Scourge: A Novel of Darkhurst and The Chronicles of The Necromancer.
Rule-breaking, unconventional assassins Joel “Ridge” Breckenridge and Garrett “Rett” Kennar are back, and the stakes have never been higher.
The Witch Lord remains at large, orchestrating his plot against Landria’s throne from the shadows. Then tragedy strikes, the kingdom is in jeopardy, and Rett disappears. Framed for murder, Ridge flees with a bounty on his head, still intent on fighting the Witch Lord’s threat. Landria’s fate hangs in the balance, leaving only hard and dangerous choices.
Can an unlikely alliance of outlaws and fugitives turn the tide for justice and vengeance?
Helen’s thoughts: 4/5
The Assasins of Landria books are great of you are looking for a quick read. I always forget how short they are, because you get so engrossed and then abruptly you’re at the end.
This is a series, so the story is one long contiunous tale and although you get a resolution for the book, the trouble these two shadow assassins are in, just gets worse and worse.
Once you get passed the reminders of who’s who and why they are in the current situation, the story begins to flow a lot smoother, and Ridge and Rett are two strong characters that carry the story. It is your investment in them that keeps you going, this is definitley a character driven tale, with a bromance that won’t fail.
Aside from the well-rounded characters, Martin does a good job of piling on the peril and revealing a bit more about some of the other possible allies Ridge and Rett may be able to rely on.
All in all an enjoyable read, and I will be checking out the next installment.
