Publisher's summary

Her peace could never last.

It shattered when Chalsarda was confronted by the single worst person she had ever known; responsible for every painful memory in her long elven life, now he has poisoned her apprentice and taunts Chalsarda with the cure. If she hopes to save her friend, she must make a deal with the devil and capture a Battle Born. Dead or alive. Nearly indestructible and monstrously strong, stopping a Battle Born would be hard enough but the real problem? This one is innocent.

With no one to turn to and the fate of her companion in the balance, Chalsarda must survive a cunning cult leader, an inhuman assassin, and an enigmatic gunslinger, in her race to collect the coveted bounty. While Chalsarda is vehemently opposed to the task at hand, she’s faced with an impossible decision:

Kill an innocent person, or watch an innocent friend die.

A blast! (sometimes literally)

A classic “action hero comes out of retirement for one last job” story with an awesome magical twist. A great mix of sincerity and comedy and it’s always a joy to read adventure books with a variety of badass women who actually have stuff going on besides punching good. A really charming voice cast as well!

Probably best to read the other books in the series first, but Bell explains the world clearly enough to still follow if you want to start here.
