«We are all destined to the kiss of Death. Only the gods are immortal. »
The Guild of Shadows reigns over the miserable streets of Clepsydre, the City of Vices. These elfin assassins have been the armed arms of the Goddess of Death for five centuries. On this day, the Guild of Shadows welcomes a new recruit in its underground. For the first time in the history of Terreflamme, a human child is pressured to become a Shadow. If she fails to embrace this path, Death itself will come to claim its due.

We are all destined for the kiss of death. Only the gods are immortal
"Following Panama's journey is quite addictive, I immersed myself in her journey of initiation. Anna Triss definitely has a magical pen and a vivid imagination.
This tome was less hot than what I've read from her before, but not lacking in any way. Everything is there to please the fans of the genre: magic, violence, elves and dragons, adventure, secrets, romance, a unique heroine (not the umpteenth twit who wonders why it happened to her and doesn't understand what's happening to her) and badass, colorful secondary characters (we can hardly call them endearing 😂), an engaging theme and a plot... Intriguing! (What is the point...?).
The ending... Surprised me and left me wanting more. I can't wait to discover the second part of this first volume."
"If you are unfortunate enough to meet the gaze of a Shadow, be sure to write your will in the three minutes you have left to live."
