He lurks beside the forest road, a charming, well-armed young murderer, not altogether human. She draws near, a contrary shepherdess fleeing an unwanted marriage. When he overhears her prayer for help, whispered to the Dread Hammer, he decides to grant it--and love takes him by surprise. But love proves a greater challenge than murder.

An enthralling, dark tale of love, war, murder, marriage, and fate, by the award-winning author of The Bohr Maker and Goddesses & Other Stories.

About the Author:

Linda Nagata is a Nebula and Locus-award-winning writer, best known for her high-tech science fiction, though she writes fantasy too.

Review:

"Smoke is the core of the story, a wonderful flawed character. His love for Ketty is pure but it may be the only thing about him that is. A perfect killer with atrocities tied to him, he is feared by all [...] Intriguing and hard to pin down is our Smoke, but a whole lot of fun to read about." —Fantasy Review Barn

Book Description Mythic Island Press LLC, United States, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Ketty is a pretty shepherdess with a contrary nature, who runs away from home to escape an unwanted marriage. As she flees along the forest road, she prays to the Dread Hammer for help-and to her astonishment help comes in the form of a charming and well-armed young murderer named Smoke. As Ketty soon discovers, Smoke is not entirely human. Smoke, too, is taken by surprise at their encounter. He had lurked beside the forest road intending to pierce hearts and slit throats, not to fall in love. But love it is-or it would be-if only he can convince Ketty that marriage is better than death. But just when happily-ever-after seems within reach, Smoke's past returns to claim him. A deserter from the Koráyos army, his supernatural skill at killing is still very much in demand. Now the army wants him back. The Dread Hammer is an enthralling, dark tale of love, war, murder, marriage, and fate. Seller Inventory # AAV9781937197070
