    "Graceling from the Graceling Realm series is pretty much the best novel written about a female assassin. She's really a dynamic character that has a lot to learn and in this book you can really see her grow. I read this book in particular from the series when I want a heavy dose of female empowerment!"

    "I liked the way the story develops through tragedy and leads to the final confrontation. It does get somewhat convoluted in the middle, where I started to get confused by what was going on. Once I got past that, the story concluded in a satisfying way."

    "Halfway to the Grave from the Night Huntress series is the best novel with female assassins ever! It is so refreshing to see a feminine side to the role, as obviously women would approach the task in a different way. The novel is exciting and all around extremely readable."
