About this deal
After centuries of being the fae Mother’s most trusted assassin, Creon’s reputation is well-deserved. She very quickly understands the reality of her new situation and plays her part well, but with her irritatingly stunning captor, she is her true self, and this is where she shines.
It's beautifully written, the fantasy world is well developed and fascinating, and the concept of color-magic is so clever. The rest of the story takes place on the Fae Isles, and more precisely, in and around the Crimson Court of the Mother. Main characters: 130 years ago, humans lost the Last Battle against the Fae and they have been paying them tribute ever since.Otherwise, you have what happened here where everything is about her and our assassin is like a fly buzzing by every now and again.
