Publishers Description: Hadrian Blackwater, a warrior with nothing to fight for, is paired with Royce Melborn, a thieving assassin with nothing to lose. Hired by an old wizard, they must steal a treasure that no one can reach. The Crown Tower is the impregnable remains of the grandest fortress ever built and home to the realm’s most prized possessions. But it isn’t gold or jewels that the wizard is after, and if he can just keep them from killing each other, they just might succeed.
Review: I originally clued into this author after following another author on Goodreads whom raved about this series. Wow, what can I say. Fantastic, riveting, engrossing, surprising and fascinating. Character, story-line development is really good. Visualizing the scenes is almost like being there. the author inter-leaves a lot of descriptors into every sentence that builds the story in your imagination. The cover art is so-so. Was looking for more grunge and characters that look very different than like twins.
I think you will have a great time with this read. Get it and be amazed!!
