The Assassin's Curse (The Assassin's Curse, #1)

The Assassin's Curse (The Assassin's Curse, #1) - Cassandra Rose Clarke I took a chance on this book from my recommendations page, and I'm glad I did. It's a tad bit silly and a lot of fun. I imagine it like Pirates of the Caribbean meets One Thousand and One Arabian Nights.

I will note that there was a tad of repetition in dialog but I didn't find it be particularly annoying. I think it was something like the creeping willies? or something like that that gets used quite a few times.

The story is primarily a fantasy adventure but also has a sprinkling of romance. I much prefer the type of slow romantic build up here than the instant love found in many young adult books. I'm looking forward to seeing how the relationship progresses in the next book.
