Brian Staveley's new standalone returns to the critically acclaimed Chronicle of the Unhewn Throne universe, following a priestess-assassin for the God of Death
From the award-winning epic fantasy world of The Emperor's Blades...
Pyrre Lakatur is not, to her mind, an assassin, not a murderer - she is a priestess. At least, she will be once she passes her final trial.
The problem isn't the killing. The problem, rather, is love. For to complete her trial, Pyrre has ten days to kill the seven people enumerated in an ancient song, including "the one who made your mind and body sing with love / who will not come again."
Pyrre isn't sure she's ever been in love. And if she fails to find someone who can draw such passion from her, or fails to kill that someone, her order will give her to their god, the God of Death. Pyrre's not afraid to die, but she hates to fail, and so, as her trial is set to begin, she returns to the city of her birth in the hope of finding love... and ending it on the edge of her sword.
"Brilliant." (V. E. Schwab, New York Times bestselling author)

Another amazing story by Brian Staveley
Couldve been Better
I liked the development of skullsworn, but it should've shown why they are so feared more and built up that aspect like the flea, how we saw from the last book why he's so feared when he told his story.
I cant remember any stand out moments in this book. it wasn't like the other 3 which each had something special that stood out in my mind.
I didn't like her accent and lack of inflection. Her voice is more suited for non fiction which is going to be written in one tone. In this it was hard to follow along because of the tone and lack of changes in her voice.
I would say skip this book and make the other three into a movie this needs more development before its ready to go into theater.
