Publisher's Summary

The Prime Sovereignty, a land divided into five kingdoms, is home to many people of power. Seventeen-year-old Lox is powerful in his own right, although he doesn't fully understand how. All he knows is that - like his mentor, Ember - he has a gift that is both rare and deadly. With his abilities, Lox learns that people like him are born to do only one thing: kill. Just not for free, of course. Thus, with Ember leading the way, Lox begins working in the Prime Sovereignty's oldest, and most fearsome, profession: he becomes an assassin.
However, the practice of assassination - already a complex craft - becomes even more complicated when Lox finds himself tagging along as a member of a team formed by one of the realm's most noble families. A group with members as talented as he is, but far more mysterious, and all tasked to work together in order to achieve the impossible: killing the immortal Emperor Nal.
As he and his companions delve deeper into the secret of the Emperor's immortality, Lox finds himself facing foes more formidable than he ever imagined - enemies fueled by something that dates back to before the existence of the Prime Sovereignty. Tested to his limits, Lox must use his wits, his will, and his blades to secure not just the future of his own realm, but the wider world beyond as well.

Not fully satisfied.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
This book seemed to me to be a thinly veiled allusion to the coming of Christ or some kind of Christian fan-fic. I think the author still has some fine tuning to do to his style of writing but who doesn't.
The narrator was somewhat troubling to me. RJ Bayley has one of the most interesting accents I've ever heard and I found myself listening to his pronunciation more than the story sometimes.

A lite assassin book.

First things first I received a copy of this book for a unbiased review.

I would like to note I only sign up for book I think I would like to read anyway, so ratings a a honest opinion of quality.

Here is my best attempt to do just that.

Narration: well we done besides weird pronunciations for some words but I got used to it fair quickly and it didn't ruin the story in any way.

Story: now the synopsis made me think "yeah a magic assassin book!" and while it's what I got it wasn't exactly what I was hoping for, I liked the world building and setting in general, it's fairly unique and I enjoy learning about it. (the information was given at the right times and repeated when necessary to avoid having to wonder what was mentioned.

I liked this book enough that I'd spend a credit for it and will get any sequels.
