The Queen’ Assassin is a YA Fantasy that follows an assassin who needs to find the missing Deian Scrolls for the Queen, an almost impossible task.
There’s another main character, Shadow, who has powers and wants to be an assassin for the Queen.
I found this to be a bit too juvenile for Young Adult, over simplistic and plain. However that does make it a quick read if that’s what you’re looking for.
I did like the characters, they were the saving grace of the book. I found myself wanting them to figure everything out and come out on top.
The plot was pretty predictable, it was very much a recycled story that I felt like I’d read before. But that doesn’t mean it was bad, though I definitely would prefer something a bit more unique.
I liked the reasoning the characters had for their actions, they were justifiable and made me root for them. Overall, a decent book.
