“Wendy Magdalena Braca’s privileged upbringing in a Victorian mansion under three moons in Jupiter City comes to a screeching halt upon her mother’s murder and her father’s untimely demise.
Kicking and screaming, she is shipped off to Greenleaf Asylum for Troubled Girls, where she is interred for years until her “rescue” by a strange guild that opens Wendy’s eyes to a new world – one teeming with intrigues, double crossings, and strange alliances. It is the world of Guild Assassins, made up of the Cæcus (normal humans), the Validus (magic-users), and Half-Breeds (demi-gods).
Though her head reels, Wendy is made of sterner stuff. She adjusts – up until she discovers she is the most special and powerful Validus known to exist, the Curse Breaker…”
Curse Breaker: Guild Assassin is a unique novel with darkness at its heart and a refreshing version of a Steampunk world.
This books isn’t all dirigibles and petticoats – it is the in your face- ass-kicking, Steampunk that I have been craving.
Wendy is a strong female lead, who is flawed but utterly charming. She is a well-rounded, three-dimensional character, who is just remarkable.
Curse Breaker: Guild Assassin is a great start to a new series. If you always wanted to read Steampunk but didn’t know where to start, then this it. All others seem to pale in comparison. Eagerly awaiting the next instalment to this exciting series.
