Ananna of the Tanarau abandons ship when her parents try to marry her off to an allying pirate clan. But that only prompts the scorned clan to send an assassin after her. And when Ananna faces him down one night, armed with magic she doesn't really know how to use, she accidentally activates a curse binding them together. To break the curse, Ananna and the assassin must complete three impossible tasks all while grappling with evil wizards, floating islands, haughty manticores, runaway nobility, strange magic, and the growing romantic tension between them.

The storyline is quite interesting enough. I got a bit miffed with Annana's character though - there's something annoying about a character that persistently asks stupid questions and does really stupid things, runs around screaming when something happens and acts like a petulant child.
She does redeem herself with bravery and the occasional bout of intelligence though....all in all, an okay story and a very good performance.
couldn't make up my mind whether it should have been a teen story or a young adults novel though........
I found this book enjoyable. Indeed you may wont to be some what of a younger listener or like the saga approach to books.
I did found it well written and narrated and a time pleaser (the books I listens to are mostly to keep my mind at a pace whilst I illustrate other books).
