defined himself as an assassin since he was very young Sasha is proud of his skills which he continues to hone on a regular basis He enjoys his occupation and has no desire to stop His association with Duncan and Yarrow has brought many changes to his ife especially in the area of feelings Loving these men goes against the grain of everything he s been taught He s constantly trying to balance and justify these emotions with the strict policy of the Brethren which teaches that feelings are weaknesses assassins can not afford to have yet Sasha doesn t want to Jasper Ollie live without them

involved It s written in a yrical style which challenges the imagination as well as the emotions To say it is well written is an understatement Although it s engthy I believe that every word needs to be there There are many complex side stories which August ties together seamlessly He doesn t pull any punches or make any apologies for his characters and their actions He portrays war just as it is fierce bloody cold frustrating and oh so needless in the first place He doesn t gloss it over making heroes of her men performing supernatural feats Even his mage Yarrow has his Pumpkinflowers limits and sometimes fails There s still much to come in this series and I amooking forward to every word of itI recommend this tale to everyone especially those who are already fans of the series and those who enjoy high magic political subversion intrigue action passion intensity and a realistic portrayal of The Wallflowers Mistletoe Wedding life and death Thanks August for a heart rending intense and
