It’s not everyday a teenage girl is singled out for assassination. 

Crysta has come to accept the fact that she is freakishly different. Her shocking white hair, creepy powers, and weird eating habits have prevented her from fitting in with her various foster families. Now that she is fully emancipated and providing for herself, she hopes that life will settle down and become something halfway normal. 

Her hopes are shattered when a dangerous man with lethal intent breaks into her apartment, but this enticing stranger isn’t what he seems. Is he here to kill her or protect her from others who will? 

My Fair Assassin is a romantic short story with elements of paranormal and urban fantasy woven in for an entertaining read. It also touches on social issues involving personal self-esteem and acceptance. Adults and teens alike will enjoy getting lost in the pages of Crysta’s story as she finally comes to accept who she is…or rather what she is.


This is my second book by the author. The first book had great writing but I wasn’t a huge fan of the love triangle going on. But I still had this in my assortment so I gave the author another go.

This one I liked better than the first book I read. But I guess I’m just not in a YA mood.

This had a bit of a different take on fairies. Maybe once I get into the YA mood I might continue on with the series. As of right now it’s on hold.
