Shortlisted for the Kitschie Award 2018
To catch an assassin, use an assassin....
Girton Club-Foot, apprentice to the land's best assassin, still has much to learn about the art of taking lives. But their latest mission tasks him and his master with a far more difficult challenge: to save a life. Someone, or many someones, is trying to kill the heir to the throne, and it is up to Girton and his master to uncover the traitor and prevent the prince's murder.
In a kingdom on the brink of civil war and a castle thick with lies, Girton finds friends he never expected, responsibilities he never wanted and a conspiracy that could destroy an entire land.
The Wounded Kingdom trilogy begins with Age of Assassins, continues with Blood of Assassins and will continue with King of Assassins.

Damned fine debut!
Would you consider the audio edition of Age of Assassins to be better than the print version?
Can't say. I've only listened to the Audio, but the story was 5* so I would say they are equal.
What did you like best about this story?
Right up my cobbled street. Medieval setting with a fantastical flare that reveals antlered war mounts and colourful armour; reinforced kilts and good ol' Welsh names! I don't see that enough, and as a history geek (specifically Anglo-Welsh wars), this impressed me muchly.
Have you listened to any of Joe Jameson’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Nope, so N/A
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Murder mystery in a magic-tainted medieval castle.
Any additional comments?
The story had me guessing at suspects throughout. I'd like to claim I'd figured it out early on... or at all, truth be told, but I didn't. I had suspicions about the right sort of people, but I never guessed at reasons, motives, secrets until they were revealed. Bravo, RJ. Bravo.
