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.
Review:What a lovely little surprise this short story turned out to be. I received this last month for review by Trisha and shamelessly I only just read it last night. I was completely blown away. Yes it's a short story but it's exciting and manages to create this new world that it totally unique.
Unveiled is about Fallon a seventeen year old girl who goes undercover at a royal party to assasinate a knight. Orders given by her leader Micha, Fallon doesn't question it. However, when the time comes to kill her mark can she do it?
As I said this a short story and usually I can enjoy short stories but since in most there isn't much to read I don't feel connected to the book in anyway. But Unveiled is very different. A combination of likable characters, exciting plot and a fantastic new world set in the future really got me hooked and loving this story.
Fallen is strong, and fiesty. She is all ready to kill Xander, her mark but all the while she is questioning her mission and what it means. I really like her. And when she makes her move to get ready to kill Xander, is clear that right away there a spark between them thats really exciting!
Trisha is a fantastic storyteller and a genius for being able to create something is fast paced and thrilling. I beg you to read this little gem of book. If you aren't a short story person I think even you will like this. It has a little of everything and honestly keeps you on the edge of seat waiting to see what will happen next.
