Paperback. Book #1 in the Daindreth's Assassin series.

Born to be a sorceress. Cursed to be an assassin. Chosen to be his empress.

Magic has two immutable rules—every spell requires a sacrifice and every curse can be broken.

Amira Brindonu is a sorceress turned assassin, bound in a curse that forces her to obey her father, even to the point of high treason. When he orders her to kill the future emperor, she fails, but discovers a secret that could bring the whole of the empire to its knees.

The archduke is stricken by a curse that could sentence him and his people to damnation, but Amira could be the only key to breaking it. In a desperate last-ditch effort, the archduke takes Amira prisoner and makes a pact to protect her from her curse if she will help free him of his own.

As time begins to run out, Amira soon learns that there are enemies that blades can’t touch and there are fates worse than death. Caught in a web of sorcery, intrigue, and her growing feelings for the archduke, the assassin must decide just how much she is willing to give to save the only man she’s ever loved.

Every curse can be broken, but can two cursed people save each other?

A fresh Fantasy Romance series that is sure to delight fans of Sarah J. Maas, Kristin Cashore, and Leigh Bardugo.

I loved this. I have gotten a little tired of the modern alpha male that has been created and is in most stories so Daindreth was a breath of fresh air. Can’t wait to read the rest of the series!

I absolutely love this story!!!! I got hooked right from the first chapter! Came by this book and author by a happy accident, and I cannot wait to read the rest of her books!!!!

You won’t be disappointed

There is absolutely no reason that Daindreth's Assassin should receive anything less than 5 stars. It is chef's kiss. A beautifully written story with great character development and wonderful world building! It flows perfectly through out all the books and you will find yourself obsessively and impatiently waiting to get the next book in your hands!

If you've been contemplating this book, give it a try

I too was drawn here by the fun YouTube shorts and decided to give the first book a try to see if I could find a new series to get into.
I strongly recommend that if you're also on the lookout for a new series you give this one a try! I was very entertained and it's an easy read.
While I wouldn't say it's a perfect story, my complaints are on the nit-picky side and now that I have finished the book I find that my thoughts still drift back to the characters and I am looking forward to reading the next book (which I shall promptly order as soon as I finish this post). I look forward to reading more from Mrs. Wheatley as she continues to hone her skills as an author and of course, more YouTube shorts!
