Assassin Prince is an epic fantasy work of fiction written for adults and was penned by P.G. Badzey. The book forms another epic episode of The Grey Riders series and follows the titular group - a former mercenary band of brothers – as they face a new threat following their previous victory over the Lich Princess. As the various colorful members of the group follow their own adventures across the world, they each discover threads that lead them to the sinister and powerful Ja’al cult, which threatens to destroy their entire world. What follows is a fantastical journey that once again combines those excellent elements of high fantasy surroundings with western-style action and adventure.

I am always delighted to return to the works of author P. G. Badzey and the fantastic Grey Riders series, and this new addition is no exception. With each book, I feel more and more attuned to the characters, and it is wonderful to see the plot expanding into so many different personal threads for them now that we know the central figures so very well. The Alenar Sisters just get cooler and cooler, and I love the diversity of personalities as well as the very different missions that each group undertakes during this particular volume. As always, the worldbuilding and atmosphere are solid, and the closer we get to what is sure to be an epic conclusion, the less I want the series to end. Overall, Assassin Prince is yet another superb addition to the Grey Riders series: not to be missed by existing fans.
