Pyrre Lakatur is not, to her mind, an assassin, not a murderer - she is a priestess. At least, she will be once she passes her final trial. The problem isn't the killing. The problem, rather, is love. For to complete her trial, Pyrre has ten days to kill the seven people enumerated in an ancient song, including "the one who made your mind and body sing with love / who will not come again." Pyrre isn't sure she's ever been in love.
Great spin off

Loved it .... listened to it twice!
Would you listen to Skullsworn again? Why?
Yes. Brians' writing it as good as it gets in the fantasy genre if you ask me. Yes it is dark, but grimly realistic and not for the faint hearted.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Skullsworn?
I loved the character Ella, a totally amoral character living just in the moment, but lighting up the page whenever she makes an appearance.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
The ending was utterly brilliant, and an ending fit for the characters.
Any additional comments?
Brian's understanding of religion and faith and all that it entails is cleverly interwoven into his writing, It makes you think, and question both the characters actions and perhaps what goes on in the real world too. Reading Brian's books is an education in itself, so prepare to have your thinking challenged.
