Probably for the younger YA group. Reads like that story your friend during high school pounded out in a weekend and handed you in a stack of 40 double-sided pages printed from Word.

I was mostly drawn to the story because the synopsis made it sound like a guy would be the main character, something of a rarity in YA fantasy. And maybe he was, but the first couple chapters were still from a girl's perspective, and she clearly was the main protagonist. Nothing wrong with this, just wasn't what I was expecting.

Recommend for those newer to the genre or fans of outcast characters, assassins, secrets, magic/curses spanning generations, and mentor-pupil/maybe-rivals-to-lovers tropes.
