Three hundred years ago, she sold her soul to a demon. Now she wants it back.
For centuries, the woman calling herself Maliha Crayne has lived a second life—as an assassin for the malevolent creature who owns her soul. A haunted killer with the blood of countless victims on her hands, she has finally discovered a way to nullify the demonic pact that chains her: If she saves a life for every one she has taken, she will be free.
But if she fails, her punishments will be unspeakable, unendurable . . . and neverending.
BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON
Maliha was burnt at the stake in 1692,and sold her soul to a demon to become its personal assassin. For 300 hundred years she has killed those individuals that the demon has told her to kill, until one day she refused to kill a baby. By refusing to kill this child, it revealed a loophole in her contract. Now she saves lives, instead of taking lives when she is told. She is now on a path to try to redeem herself and take back her soul.
The character of Mahila is of a woman who has lost everything, and now risks her soul to try to get it back. In the bargain she gets the short end of the stick. Now with this loop-hole she can now right the wrongs that she has wrought in 300 hundred years. I really liked the story line, it reminded me of some of the comic books that I read growing up. The characters are well-developed, and the secondary characters help the story along. I give this book a 4/ 5 stars.
Here are the books in the series.
