The Progeny Assassin A Tarnished Lands Story by P.A. Wikoff

Four Stars

The Progeny Assassin was n interesting read. The author wrote about Lara finding her true potential. The lies and betrayal felt from many characters. I didn’t enjoy the length of the story. It was a lot to read. With that being said I was intrigued by the main character and how her mind worked. It was pure instincts and a little logic. The characters were well developed. There was too much dialogue in every chapter. It was information overload. I did like the direction the author took there wasn’t some great love to make her see the right path. She is on a journey to find answers and her true self.

The Progeny Assassin: A Tarnished Lands Story (Forgotten Woods Book 2) by P.A. Wikoff continues the fantasy saga. I was concerned because I read the first book awhile back and was afraid I would be lost. Luckily this book can be read as a standalone because it is a continuation in the same land. The attention to detail is amazing yet again and places you in this nightmare world. Lara is complacent about her life but things soon change. She is fierce and strong. I really enjoyed reading her story. I look forward to reading the next book in this series and learning more about the Tarnished Lands.

The Progeny Assassin: A Tarnished Lands Story (Forgotten Woods Book 2) by P.A. Wikoff i​s the second book in the series which follows on from the Harrowed Half-Breed. It can be read as a standalone but it will give you more background if you read the first one. P.A’s easy writing paints vivid pictures of the world in which this story is told and of the characters who have not lead an easy life. The eeriness and darkness of the story keeps you intrigued and the pages turning.

4 Stars!!!!

This is the second book in the series and I have to admit that I was just as drawn in to this one as I was the first. I quite like the otherworldly tone to the book. The author has quite a unique world and style in which the reader is drawn into the world like you are there as it the drama unfolds.

I really felt drawn to Lara and her character. As the drama unfolds for her I was eager to see what would happen next. The drama unfolds in this world and I was going through all the emotions and drama as Lara went through it. I really like how the author was able to tie this book into the first and I cannot wait to be able to read more from this author and the series.

The Progeny Assassin: A Tarnished Lands StoryThe Progeny Assassin: A Tarnished Lands Story by P.A. Wikoff

A great read about growing up. Lara is a reckless and daring young girl. As a feathered folk, she seeks to protect her dying forest from invaders but never takes it seriously. When her master suddenly goes missing, Lara sets out to find her, thinking it will be like one of the great quest narratives she loves to read. But the world is full of surprises and dangers Lara never knew. existed. Can she survive it all and find her master?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns that I just couldn’t put down. Well developed characters like Lara as bold and daring but vulnerable and childlike underneath or the master as the stern mentor figure.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel with the sense of destruction with the burnt out trees and dead grass and ash with memories of what was there like the pink lake or the fresh wind for a sense of loss. And the wonderful magical sense of the mist and the moon later on for Lara as a source of unexpected happiness.
I loved the sense of the bildungsroman narrative as we watch Lara grow up and find her way through thinga. This along with the childlike nature of discovery and adventure was beautifully written. I also enjoyed the metanarratives with Lara’s vivid sense of imagination and were poignant in how reality can be harsher. Overall, a great read and I would give it five stars.

This is the second book that I have read by this author an again I really enjoyed it. It’s not my favourite genre but I have really enjoyed finding a new genre to enjoy and I think P.A. Wikoff is a fantastic author and he has a great writing style which keeps my interest throughout. I really liked the characters and the detail in which the author had used enabled me to fully envisage what I was reading. Lara is a really interesting character and I really enjoyed following her story. There are some great twists and turns in the story and it is definitely full of action and fantasy. I am definitely looking forward to reading more from this author again in the future.

The Progeny Assassin: A Tarnished Lands story by P.A. Wikoff is the second book in the Forgotten Lands series. This book can be read separate to the first although in my opinion you will be missing out.
It had been a while since I have read book 1 and I loved jumping back into the Tarnished Lands world. This author has a way of painting a picture so that it is so easy to imagine the characters and what is happening.
This particular book is fast paced and intense. It feels like you are taken on a wild journey, right alongside Lara. It is adventurous and exciting and an all round enjoyable read.
I would definitely recommend not just this book and series but also this author.

4-stars

The Progeny Assassin: A Tarnished Lands Story by P.A. Wikoff is the second book in the Forgotten Woods series. Though each book can be read as a standalone I would suggest reading Book 1, The Harrowed Half-Breed, first. Just like book 1 this book is incredibly detailed, so detailed in fact that it felt as if I was right beside Lara during her journey of self-discovery.

This storyline is dark, twisted, captivating, entertaining and action-packed. I was captivated from the very beginning until the end.

If you’re looking for a one of a kind fantasy read look no further!

By P.A. Wikoff
Rated 3 stars

The story was very hard for me to get Into. There is so much narrative. I struggled to focus on the story. I found myself reading through a haze at times. It does get more exciting about half way. For some reason I really couldn’t get into Lara’s story. I didn’t even realize she is the assassin until she keeps killing. Her Master disappears and Lara goes on a quest for find her. On her way she runs into different feathered folk and humans. Some she likes and others she doesn’t. She learns a few things about herself as the story moves forward. The character Lara actually seemed like a good character. I could see her growth as the story went on. This is the second in the series. I feel it could be read as a stand alone but it might be more enjoyable if read in series order.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

THE PROGENY ASSASSIN is book two in the “Forgotten Woods” series. While I think it MIGHT be able to be read as a stand-alone, I suggest reading it in order because the writing is amazing.

This is one of those stories that transported me to a place that I never could have imagined. It is so creatively written, that I was able to watch a movie in my head as I was reading. It is also one of those stories that I read really fast and breathlessly, much like the action taking place.

In addition to LOVING this story, I have also learned some new cuss words (“…you gross piece of fundle snop!”).

I recommend this story and this series to young and old alike.
