Blood and Water: The Impossible Contract by K. A. Doore

Posted 10th November 2019 by Siavahda in Fantasy Reviews, Queer Lit, Reviews / 0 Comments

The Impossible Contract is the second book in Doore’s Chronicles of Ghadid trilogy, a series following a family of assassins in a desert world where water is not only currency, but magic. Contract reads perfectly well as a standalone, but you’re missing out if you skip over book one, The Perfect Assassin, with its homoromantic-asexual, […]
