Prayers For The Assassin.

Goodreads Review.

A rather good read, quite resonant with our times which is apparent from the blurb. An inner monologue from the cast of characters strings together the narrative, which shifts between villainous and heroic characters. Although well described as an alternate history novel, Robert Ferrigno applies multiple perspectives, a style from the fantasy genre, most prominent of which is the GoT franchise. However the overwhelming distinction is the uniting objective between every character, which I enjoyed, as the threads which bind the disparate GoT characters together, to my dismay, are politics. Loose threads in the closing chapters leave the room for a sequel open, which may lose readers who no longer savour the novelty.
