The Progeny Assassin: A Tarnished Lands Story (Forgotten Woods Book 2) by P.A. Wikoff was a fast moving,engaging, intrilling read that had me hooked from start to finish.
Not my first read by this author or in this series, but even though this is book two, it reads as a standalone. So if you haven’t read that first book, no worries, but I do suggest reading it as it does set the stage for this dark, deadly world. That and, it’s a pretty amazing book in its own right.
This book takes place in another part of the Tarnished lands. Following our MC Lara, a deadly feathered-folk warrior and, her journey towards finding her true place in that hellish world. I must say right away I liked Lara. There was just something.. there about her. I can’t explain it, because I’ll get too much into her, and I don’t want to spoil anything. Let just say, she’s what all female protagonist should inspire to be.
Rich with the dark tones that were present in that first book, the writing is just as sinister and the detail just as darkly picturesque, painting the horror that is the Tarnished Lands. This original thriller is on a different level of good, and I’m stressing to you, that you need this book in your lives. Not just this book, but the first as well.
With that said I’m going to leave you with my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval.
