Book Review - My Fair Assassin by C.J. Anaya

Amazon USA Amazon UK
 
 Review by Anniek

Crysta went from foster to foster home ever since she was very young. She had to deal with a lot after she was the sole survivor of a car accident that killed her parents. Crysta has pale white hair, bright blue eyes and pointy ears. Every time she looks a boy or a man in the eyes they develop an unhealthy urge to claim Crysta as their own. This has resulted in numerous stalkers throughout the years and a lot of moving around. Crysta has tried incredibly hard to be normal, so that she would be adopted by a loving family, but unfortunately this never happened.

Crysta is now 17 years old and lives in an apartment with a roommate. She was fired and because of that she won't be able to pay her part of the rent. She has been homeless multiple times and is not looking forward to be out on the streets again. Crysta has a dream to become a prima ballerina. She has been taking dance lessons and her big audition is coming up. When she finds a man in her home, who has been sent to kill her, Crysta finds herself at a crossroads with this strange assassin. Sparks fly when they touch and Crysta's assassin is not so sure anymore that Crysta is just a human he was sent to kill.

Jareth is a Fae prince who was sent to earth to kill Crysta. She is supposed to be a huge threat to the Fae race. Jareth is a strong leader, extremely handsome and fiercely loyal. He is used to give out orders and is stunned when Crysta stands up to him. Crysta has been through so much in her young life. Instead of being a scared teenager Crysta is working hard to achieve her goals. She is confident, courageous and forgiving, she also makes good choices and is really mature for her age. Both Jareth and Crysta have tough personalities and are evenly matched. I liked the interaction between the two a lot.

My Fair Assassin is a unique love story with an interesting twist. It pulled me in from the beginning because of the interesting situation the main characters are in. They aren't on the same side and they come from diverse backgrounds. The dialogue between Jareth and Crysta made me laugh multiple times. They are different on so many levels and their interaction kept me glued to the pages.

C.J. Anaya wrote My Fair assassin for her niece who was struggling with her own self-esteem and self-worth. She wanted her to understand that the differences in her facial features are making her extra beautiful, distinct, and unique. I think this is a powerful message for everyone and C.J. Anaya definitely succeeds in getting her message across in this magical story. I'm look forward to reading about Jareth and Crysta's next journey.
