When a rogue assassin starts taking heads in the Hundred Halls, no one is safe, not even the teachers.
Zayn leads his team as they investigate the gruesome deaths. The search draws them to dangerous places: the infamous Black Council and the opulent casino of pain run by the Diamond Court. As leads dry up, and heads roll, leaving them no closer to the truth, Zayn must make a terrible choice involving the people who he cares about most.
This was a really great read. A continuation of Zayn's story (and backstory), as he continues on in his training at the Hundred Halls. The plot was excellent, the action swift, and all very well written, as I've come to expect from all Carpenter's books. I highly recommend this series to anyone looking for an exciting read! Carpenter is definitely an author you'll want to keep track of, and his other books are also great.
