Editorial reviews (2 reviews)

Clarke took a big risk with The Assassin’s Curse in the way she wrote Ananna’s voice and thus the narration. It’s very distinct and with what you might call an accent if you’d only heard it. I’m not sure whether it’s a reflection of pirate patois or meant to convey that Ananna isn’t that well-educated, though since she can read, write, and cipher, I’d have to guess it’s the former.

It is a book not without technical accomplishments, and a pirate/assassin pairing has at least the benefit of somewhat more novelty than werewolf/vampire. But the strongest emotion I can muster in its regard is a sort of lukewarm goodwill.
