Here is a clue to the story. Mind you the opening sequence of our heroine assassin clinging to the side of a building by the shingles wishing for a rope or if not that a crisp, crackling berry pie drew me in immediately. The frigid river quote cinched my conviction that this novel would entertain. Kyra sounded like my kind of heroine--foolishly daring, yet competent, desperate, and with a wry sense of humor.
Poisoning your best friend, Princess to the Kingdom, probably doesn’t help you to win friends and influence people. Yet Kyra’s reasons appear sound, though devastating.
Now Kyra is being pursed across the kingdom by royal troops and fellow assassins.
Kyra’s nemesis Fred, is equally as delightful, but more frequently, downright puzzling.
