The Hunter of Voramis is the perfect assassin: ruthless, unrelenting, immortal. Haunted by lost memories, he is bonded to a cursed dagger that feeds him power but denies him peace of mind. Within him rages an unquenchable need for blood and death.When he accepts a contract to avenge the stolen innocence of a girl, the Hunter becomes the prey. The death of a seemingly random target sends him hurtling toward destruction, yet could his path also lead to the truth of his buried past?

The hunter is constantly trying to appease the voice of his blade that urges him to kill and feed it with the lives he takes. He does not know where he comes from but he is a killer for hire. When a certain assignment puts the city in upheaval he finds more about himself and has to decide if he is going to feed the demon within or help save humanity.

In an Oyster shell – This was a good story a little violent for my taste but it kept my attention and I want to read the next book.

The Pearls – The world building was on point and believable.  I liked the multi-layered political structure that the city was founded on. The hierarchy in the city and Hunter’s interaction with it made for a compelling story.

I’ve heard the term Anti-Hero but I’ve never seen it in action until now. Hunter was well developed. He was intriguing to follow. The struggle between killing and his humanity was compelling. It was heart wrenching some things that he went through but it made me more empathetic to his character.

The Sand – It was a bit more violent than I’m used to but I am looking forward to the next book.

4 Pearls!

About Andy Peloquin

I am, first and foremost, a storyteller and an artist–words are my palette. Fantasy is my genre of choice, and I love to explore the darker side of human nature through the filter of fantasy heroes, villains, and everything in between. I’m also a freelance writer, a book lover, and a guy who just loves to meet new people and spend hours talking about my fascination for the worlds I encounter in the pages of fantasy novels.

Fantasy provides us with an escape, a way to forget about our mundane problems and step into worlds where anything is possible. It transcends age, gender, religion, race, or lifestyle–it is our way of believing what cannot be, delving into the unknowable, and discovering hidden truths about ourselves and our world in a brand new way. Fiction at its very best!
