“Her soot-covered body blends perfectly with the charredscape, hiding her tough bark-like skin against the wicked wreckage. Her kind walks and talks like humans do, only with a particularly distinguishing characteristic—delicate feathers that sprout from her body instead of hair. Though she has no way of hiding her violet eyes, her soft silver feathers blend nicely with her dark disguise. This feature gives the feathered-folk an almost symphonic sound when a breeze travels through the for

THE PROGENY ASSASSIN is book two in the "Forgotten Woods" series. While I think it MIGHT be able to be read as a stand-alone, I suggest reading it in order because the writing is amazing.

This is one of those stories that transported me to a place that I never could have imagined. It is so creatively written, that I was able to watch a movie in my head as I was reading. It is also one of those stories that I read really fast and breathlessly, much like the action taking place.

In addition to LOVIN

The Progeny Assassin: A Tarnished Lands Story (Forgotten Woods Book 2) By P.A. Wikoff. These books are completely outside of my comfort zone and I’m so glad I took a chance on something new because this author writes a story that’s so vivid you feel a part of the journey the characters are on. From page one you are drawn into the book and trust me you’ll be totally fine being in it until the very end. It’s a bit of a darker read but that won’t stop the enjoyment you get. You can read this as a s ...more

The Progeny Assassin: A Tarnished Lands Story is the second book in the Forgotten Woods series from PA Wikoff. Now, I have read the first book in the series, The Harrowed Half-Breed, but this isn’t necessarily a requirement to read this one. I do think it set my understanding up better to enjoy this novel much better. In this one we get more of the dark and tarnished lands that we discovered in book one, and I really enjoyed my time with the MC, Lara. I found myself enjoying her even more so in ...more

The Progeny Assassin: A Tarnished Lands Story (Forgotten Woods Book 2) by P.A. Wikoff was a fast moving,engaging, intrilling read that had me hooked from start to finish.

Not my first read by this author or in this series, but even though this is book two, it reads as a standalone. So if you haven't read that first book, no worries, but I do suggest reading it as it does set the stage for this dark, deadly world. That and, it's a pretty amazing book in its own right.

I give The Progeny Assassin: A Tarnished Lands Story (Forgotten Woods Book 2) by P.A. Wikoff, 4 stars.

Then one day, her master heads out to clean up one of Lara's "messes". This is unprecedented. Master never leaves the house. To make matters worse, she doesn't come back.

The Progeny Assassin is the second book of PA Wikoff’s Forgotten Woods series. While I don’t necessarily think you need to read the first book in the series to follow along with this book’s storyline, I enjoyed having read the first book prior.

I really missed the Tarnished Lands and I am grateful that I went back in P.A. Wikoff’s book The Progeny Assassin: A Tarnished Lands Story. Wikoff does such an amazing job bringing me right into the story like I never left. His characters are a part of my friends in the sense of my book friends. The world that Wikoff builds is very detailed which makes it easy to picture in my mind’s eye. Wikoff’s character Lara is one of favorite characters.

4 Stars!!!!

This is the second book in the series and I have to admit that I was just as drawn in to this one as I was the first. I quite like the otherworldly tone to the book. The author has quite a unique world and style in which the reader is drawn into the world like you are there as it the drama unfolds.

I really felt drawn to Lara and her character. As the drama unfolds for her I was eager to see what would happen next. The drama unfolds in this world and

Four Stars

The Progeny Assassin was n interesting read. The author wrote about Lara finding her true potential. The lies and betrayal felt from many characters. I didn’t enjoy the length of the story. It was a lot to read. With that being said I was intrigued by the main character and how her mind worked. It was pure instincts and a little logic. The characters were well developed. There was too much dialogue in every chapter. It was info

4-stars

The Progeny Assassin: A Tarnished Lands Story by P.A. Wikoff is the second book in the Forgotten Woods series. Though each book can be read as a standalone I would suggest reading Book 1, The Harrowed Half-Breed, first. Just like book 1 this book is incredibly detailed, so detailed in fact that it felt as if I was right beside Lara during her journey of self-discovery.

This storyline is dark, twisted, captivating, entertaining and

The Progeny Assassin: A Tarnished Lands Story (Forgotten Woods Book 2) by P.A. Wikoff continues the fantasy saga. I was concerned because I read the first book awhile back and was afraid I would be lost. Luckily this book can be read as a standalone because it is a continuation in the same land. The attention to detail is amazing yet again and places you in this nightmare world. Lara is complacent about her life but things soon change. She is fierce and strong.

The Progeny Assassin: A Tarnished Lands story by P.A. Wikoff is the second book in the Forgotten Lands series. This book can be read separate to the first although in my opinion you will be missing out.
It had been a while since I have read book 1 and I loved jumping back into the Tarnished Lands world. This author has a way of painting a picture so that it is so easy to imagine the characters and what is happening.
This particular book is fast paced and intense. It feels like you are taken on a

This book can be read as a standalone but I highly suggest reading the first book, a must read series! I love how this author takes me on a magical adventure that is creative and engaging. The characters are creative and they pulled me into their magical world and made me feel as if I was right there with them. Lara has been protecting what is left of the dying land. What will happen when her master turns up missing and she gets the adventure that she wasn’t expecting? A must read!

The Progeny Assassin: A Tarnished Lands Story (Forgotten Woods Book 2) by P.A. Wikoff is the second book in the series which follows on from the Harrowed Half-Breed. It can be read as a standalone but it will give you more background if you read the first one. P.A’s easy writing paints vivid pictures of the world in which this story is told and of the characters who have not lead an easy life. The eeriness and darkness of the story keeps you intrigued and the pages turning.

I jumped into this book quickly. What a fantastic new world the author has created. Complex and detailed, this dystopian fantasy felt realistic and relatable. The author gives the main character a great voice. The universe created for these characters is one I look forward to visiting again very soon.

Rated 3 stars

The story was very hard for me to get Into. There is so much narrative. I struggled to focus on the story. I found myself reading through a haze at times. It does get more exciting about half way. For some reason I really couldn’t get into Lara’s story. I didn’t even realize she is the assassin until she keeps killing. Her Master disappears and Lara goes on a quest for find her. On her way she runs into different feathered f
