The Last Assassin

Title: The Last Assassin
Series: The Dark War Trilogy #1
Draft: 1st

This trilogy is the project I'm most excited about at the moment. I love the characters, the setting, the plot, I just love the whole thing and I'm really excited to be able to share it with people in the future. The general storyline is that there are three countries at war with each other, and each book follows a character in a place of power in one of those three countries. All three books take place at the same time, so the planning and attention to detail necessary is really interesting, particularly since I'm not usually a planner. I've found it's very fun to have important points take place at the exact same time, even if you don't know it at first. It's really cool. You can see the trilogy's Pinterest board here.

Catessa is the king's assassin, and she has been tasked with killing the king of the neighboring kingdom, Roenor, before he invades. But is King Alleyn really behind the plans or is all of this a small part of a more elaborate plan?

Also in this series:


“I told King Detren earlier today. No one else in Roenor knows, except for his adviser Nissa. I just handicapped half a crew of pirates, and now the people in the tavern where it happened are hailing me as a hero. I’m not a hero. Heroes don’t kill kings.”

Cor took her hand, his soft against hers. “You may not fit the classic definition of a hero, but I think you are one. Heroes don’t always get things right, but they understand when they’ve done something wrong and try to fix it. That’s what you’re doing.”
