Publisher Description

For a relic of war, death is my inevitable release.

Most people can't kill without regret, but I don't have that luxury. I am a tank-created nu-human, and my sole purpose hinges on the whims of my tyrannical maniac creator. Town annihilations to political assassinations—I never disobey.

Until I want more.

When I escape beyond the realm of my former master, my only goal is safety—freedom—a life I always wanted. I should have known my creator would send deadly pursuers. He wants to remind me of what I'm never fated to have.

Then destiny tempts me with the unexpected.

When a dragon—a creature said to be long extinct—offers me a chance at true freedom from my former master's control, I don't know what to believe. In my line of work, trust kills. But something is different about this creature....

With nothing to lose, I agree to his terms. Now, I wait. Will he give me the freedom I crave, or did I seal my fate?

Love the story!

I really enjoyed the story and the book was well written. I am excited about starting the next book in the series, immediately. My one complaint is the writer spent far too many words in describing each character's look and several different scenes.

Loved it!

This book kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time! A little slow at first but once Eira gets you into the city all I want to do is to keep reading to see what happens next! The only con I have is the names are quite hard to pronounce.
