My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Goodreads Blurb: Destined to destroy empires, Mia Covere is only ten years old when she is given her first lesson in death.
Six years later, the child raised in shadows takes her first steps towards keeping the promise she made on the day that she lost everything.
But the chance to strike against such powerful enemies will be fleeting, so if she is to have her revenge, Mia must become a weapon without equal. She must prove herself against the deadliest of friends and enemies, and survive the tutelage of murderers, liars and demons at the heart of a murder cult.
The Red Church is no Hogwarts, but Mia is no ordinary student.
The shadows love her. And they drink her fear.
My Musings: I loved this book about a female assassin, and although she may be teenaged, this story reads a lot more like a New Adult book, i.e scenes of graphic violence and sex.
The story is bloated with purple prose in the beginning, but it does calm down a bit in the rest of the book, although it is always present this didn’t bother me much, but just a heads up for people who do not enjoy that.
This did turn out to be a fun adventure with an intriguing mystery. I am curious to see who the next book will follow. Overall I would recommend this.
