Product description

Product Description

My name’s Kian, and I’m the Assassin of the Silver Rose. I’m the first disciple of the god of thieves. Even though you can see my true age in my eyes, my body looks nineteen. As long as I continue to kill I’ll have eternal youth. That’s how Tethyr rewards my loyalty. It’s only the first of my blessings.

Impressed? Don’t be. When I started out I belonged to the Nightshade, a cruel man with overreaching ambition.

I was his apprentice. He taught me how to murder, and blood’s been my trade ever since. I’d say we’re the same, but I’d be lying. I found love. And that’s made all the difference.

THIS M/M DARK FANTASY ROMANCE contains mature content. Ages 17+

The Nightshade’s Apprentice is part one of two but can stand alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars An awesome dark fantasy, 5/5 5 April 2016
By Nathan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A story that's definitely worth the money, The Nightshade's Apprentice doesn't pull any punches when it comes to descriptive detail. Lots of action, both physical and intimate, all set from the perspective of the protagonist Kian Lightfoot. While the story provides predominantly gay sex, there are times Kian hooks up with a girl — so if het isn't your thing, the series might not be to your liking.

Be warned, the story takes a pretty dark turn for a bit near the end that may shock some with delicate sensibilities.

Characters are kinda one dimensional, story seems very event rather than character driven.

1.0 out of 5 stars no 30 August 2013
By Furio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I had to give up on this: the basic idea, far from new though it is, is compelling and conducive to narrative tension. Assassins and/or apprentices such are delicate characters, though, and require special care.
Kian is not only unlikeable -after all there is no law in fiction coercing authors to only cast likeable leads- but stiff, the workings of his minds elementary and devoid of charm.
Other characters are either pale or inconsistent.

Writing is intentionally based on short, clipped sentences. A few annoying typos (seize instead of cease, for example) and the abuse of adjectives do not help but are not responsible for the lack of narrative tension build-up and/or for the feeling of detachment I felt while reading.
