4.0 out of 5 stars A great addition to The Assassin's Curse world! 19 April 2013

A fantastic short story from Naji's POV that shows his relationship to Leila, the river witch, and the events leading to the scarring of his face. One of the things I love about Naji is his internal conflicts. Here it's even more evident that Naji is slightly bothered by the fear people feel and show when they see him. And this is before his face is burned, so just imagine the issues he has with it in The Assassin's Curse, where people fear him not just for his profession but for his appearance. Oh, Naji! I just want to tackle you into a hug and never let you go!

We also get a bit of world-building in here. I loved that we get a description of what Naji feels while he's traveling through the shadows. It was such a nice detail to add. And we get more information about the kind of magic assassins use and how they use it. Overall, a great addition to The Assassin's Curse world!

Naji is an assassin and the target he’s after has been aided by Leila the river witch. Forced to get creative in his tracking he ends up paying a huge price for his diligence.

Not having read The Assassin’s Curse series this short tale is interesting enough that I really want to dive into it and see what Naji’s future holds. I can’t say I like Leila, but then again, she’s trying to survive. And Naji’s creative tracking, while finding him his target, ends up costing him dearly. I’m looking forward to reading more.

It was actually a pretty good book but as it was a prequel for some amazing books it was a little bit of a letdown. Still, I enjoyed it and getting to know how the scars were made and other backstory details. I'm a sucker for getting to know characters better.

There wasn't as much meat to this story as I wanted there to be. I adored A Pirate's Wish, and was eager to learn more about Naji, but this doesn't say much more than we already knew.
