Goodreads URL Discuss and Review The Guild of Assassins

“I loved this one even more than the first, Blades of the Old Empire … Kara is the hinge-point for much of the drama. She’s a strong female character … an absolutely awesome heroine. Not just because she’s physically strong and capable, but because she has a tremendous amount of agency and is totally (and very humanly) conflicted about what to do with it.”
– Marlene, The Book Pushers

“Such a great read! One of the things I really enjoyed about this installment is how Kashina addressed the elephant in the room, which was the relationship established in the first installment.  She really showed both the power and the peril of love along with some of what it would take to really lead as a ruler, not just hold the name. I loved each reveal, each twist, and the tension.”
– E, The Book Pushers

“Epic fantasy readers will love this action-packed adventure of elite warriors and romance!”
– Amy Raby, author of the Hearts and Thrones series
