Sleepless (Curse of the Blood Fox Trilogy, Book #1) by Sera Ashling



The Blood Fox: a legend known throughout Kurdak, spanning as far back as the Broken Treaty wars. A cunning warrior that wields two ancient swords with crimson and gold blades, the Blood Fox will kill anyone—for the right price.

No one knows the Blood Fox is actually Santo, a polite, introspective mercenary who avoids sleep whenever possible. She might look young and inexperienced, but looks can be deceiving, especially for one who is tormented by a curse that was meant to drive her mad over a century ago… and it hasn’t entirely failed. The truth is that Santo is only interested in answers. Who cursed her? Why? She has only hazy memories, and no leads.

That is, until the mythical Week of Colors arrives, and with it a visit from a long-time acquaintance. Traken is a sharp-tongued sorcerer with a sadistic streak, and he comes bearing an “invitation” from his master, a secretive lord who has been tracking her for a very long time. The Blood Fox agrees to meet him after receiving an ominous prediction that if she does so, she will learn the truth—but likely die in the process.


Review: I happen to love the character Santo. Seriously. Her politeness in most situations just makes the story so much more interesting. Her interaction with Traken is amusing because he’s so sarcastic and manipulative. The journey to Traken’s master is filled with plenty of turns. Traken doesn’t seem to be the most inspirational guy. In fact, he’s basically a murderer. His past lands Santo in hot water several times, though they manage to get out of each situation. In the end, it’s not surprising that Traken has more motives than even he understands in all the years he’s followed and studied Santo. The ending leaves me definitely wanting to know more about what happens to these two and how their strange relationship will continue to develop.
