Novella Mini Review: Unveiled by Trisha Wolfe


Unveiled is a prequel novella for the soon-to-be-released YA fantasy book Fireblood by Trisha Wolfe.
 
What they say: Part of the Fireblood series coming 2013.

Amongst the wasteland lies the gleaming city of Karm. A Camelot-esque utopia built from the ashes of a dying world.

Seventeen-year-old Fallon is no daughter of Karm.

She's its assassin.

Raised by a secret society of rebels, she's bent on bringing down the king's sham of an existence. But her first mark, one of the king's top knights of the Force, makes her question everything. Even her heart.


I received a copy from the author.

What I say: Thanks to the joys of Goodreads I came across Fireblood by Trisha Wolfe in the future releases section. I love a good fantasy/dystopian/assassin story and decided Fireblood sounded right up my street.

I noticed Trisha had already released a short prequel novella introducing her characters and the citizens of Karm.

Unveiled is a short but good intro into Fallon's world and I loved how the city/kingdom was a funny combination of a futuristic dystopia and fantasy medieval world.

Newly trained teenage assassin, Fallon is given her first mission: to kill Xander. Things don't exactly go to plan and Fallon learns that pretty much everything she believed in is a lie.

I'm really looking forward to the release of Fireblood and to see Fallon and Xander's story continue.

4 Stars in my Sky!

My fav non-spoilery quotes:
  • "Well, I could always ask you to show off your skills by attacking that tree."
  • "Yes, the ever-effective 'kiss your enemy to death' tactic," he says, a smile playing at his lips. "I have to admit, it's my preferable way to dies."
