BLADE OF THE DESTROYER (The Last Bucelarii: Book 1)
The Hunter of Voramis is the perfect assassin: ruthless, unrelenting, immortal. Haunted by lost memories, he is bonded to a cursed dagger that feeds him power but denies him peace of mind. Within him rages an unquenchable need for blood and death.
When he accepts a contract to avenge the stolen innocence of a girl, the Hunter becomes the prey. The death of a seemingly random target sends him hurtling toward destruction, yet could his path also lead to the truth of his buried past?
Blade of The Destroyer, is a Dark Fantasy. I normally do not read these books, but I met the author so I thought I would give it a shot. I am not disappointed at all. The Hunter who is a contract killer is set up under a ruse of a man saying his granddaughter was violated, and because of that her mother his daughter also died. The Hunter sets outs to find the person and to kill that person. This leads to a series of events in his life that takes the story into a direction that I did not see coming. Full of suspense, intrigue, deception, mystery, and yes murder. He is a hit man. The character, The Hunter has many different levels and you actually experience the character grow as the story goes along. This was just one of things I liked about the book. Other characters have equal depth and a view surprise you as far as good and evil. The city of Voramis is describe in a way that you can see it in your mind. He also gives you a description of a series of tunnels under the city that has a feel of an ancient town with a new city built over it. Other than maybe weapons being used you do not know what or where you are when reading this book. That for me is just one reason why it made this story so good. It was a story with some dark moments, but also one of hope, trying to find oneself, and trying to overcome a wrong. A very, very good book. With excellent characters.
