A YA novel from Angry Robot's Strange Chemistry imprint
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.

Praise and Reviews:
"Its fluid prose, naturalistic dialogue and pace make The Assassin’s Curse supremely readable. And in Ananna, the young offspring of pirate stock, we have a heroine both spirited and memorable."- Stan Nicholls, author of the Orcs: First Blood trilogy
"Ananna of Tanarau is a delightfully irascible heroine, inhabiting a fascinating and fresh new world that I would love to spend more time in. Pirate ships? Camels? Shadow dwelling assassins? Yes please! Can I have some more?"- Celine Kiernan, author of the Moorhawke trilogy
