In AD 1331, warlord Vladimir Barbu seizes control of Transylvania. But in spite of his bloody triumph, his claim to the throne remains out of reach. The king of Hungary opposes his rule, the Transylvanian people despise his brutal ways, and the high priestess needed to crown him has vanished without a trace. But Barbu hasn’t come this far only to be thwarted by a woman. He unleashes his best hunters to track her down and bring her to him—dead or alive.

For Xavian Ramir, killing is the only life he has ever known. Torn from his family when he was a child, he was trained from an early age to be an elite assassin. But now he longs for something more, vowing to start anew after one last job. The bounty on his target’s head is enough to set him up for good—if he can resist the long-dead conscience that stirs to life when he meets his beautiful mark.

Afina Lazar never wanted to become high priestess, but the brutal murders of her beloved mother and sister leave her no choice. Now she is running for her life, desperate to protect the magical amulet entrusted to her care. But when Barbu’s assassin comes for her, she realizes her only chance of stopping the warlord’s rise to power is to convince this enigmatic—and handsome—hunter that she is more valuable alive than dead.

Dramatic and fast-paced, Knight Awakened is a stirring love story between two people searching for a second chance in a magical world of assassins, warlords, unearthly beasts, and nonstop adventure.

He hires assassins to find her. Two of the assassins hire on to find out why Vladimir wants her. One is her brother Henrick and the other who needs coin to feed the people of his keep, Xavian. Xavian bonds with Afina and unleashes her magic. I can't wait to see where this series is going to go. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina | 2/15/2014

    " Really liked this first book in a new series. The fantasy element is not too over-the-top, it has a flawed hero and an equally flawed heroine, there is more than one evil enemy, and the secondary characters are interesting enough to want to get to know better. I'm looking forward to the next entry in this new series. "

    " For the audiobook: yowza, awful. The actor reading this is not a good conduit for the book. Monotone, super slow, yet difficult to understand when soft and some slurring in other places. Go for print or ebook, and hope for recasting for the next book in the series! (Coreene Callahan is fun, and I like high fantasy.) "
