In AD 1331, warlord Vladimir Barbu seizes control of Transylvania. But in spite of his bloody triumph, his claim to the throne remains out of reach. The king of Hungary opposes his rule, the Transylvanian people despise his brutal ways, and the high priestess needed to crown him has vanished without a trace. But Barbu hasn’t come this far only to be thwarted by a woman. He unleashes his best hunters to track her down and bring her to him—dead or alive. For Xavian Ramir, killing is the only life he has ever known. Torn from his family when he was a child, he was trained from an early age to be an elite assassin. But now he longs for something more, vowing to start anew after one last job. The bounty on his target’s head is enough to set him up for good—if he can resist the long-dead conscience that stirs to life when he meets his beautiful mark. Afina Lazar never wanted to become high priestess, but the brutal murders of her beloved mother and sister leave her no choice. Now she is running for her life, desperate to protect the magical amulet entrusted to her care. But when Barbu’s assassin comes for her, she realizes her only chance of stopping the warlord’s rise to power is to convince this enigmatic—and handsome—hunter that she is more valuable alive than dead. Dramatic and fast-paced, Knight Awakened is a stirring love story between two people searching for a second chance in a magical world of assassins, warlords, unearthly beasts, and nonstop adventure.

Another great book full of adventure and romance.
It's set in a fantasy version of Transylvania in 1331 and the characters use phrases like "exit strategy", "define the variables", "clue you in", and "doesn't do random". Those are all direct quotes. The whole book is like this. Cover to cover anachronisms, really really blatantly stupidly obvious a...
I wish this book started off with the hero/heroine fucking, matter of fact books should all start so , like that the stories would probably move a bit faster instead of being stuck on them wanting each other so much that nothing else happens.
This book. THIS BOOK. Oh my god. I can't even. The story seemed like it would be awesome, but it was a LIE. Word (over)usage has me frothing at the mouth, so I'm gonna start there for why I cannot recommend this book to anyone, ever. Just... this book is Kryptonite to anyone who can't stand repetiti...
I wish they had a 4.5 because that's how I would rate this book. I really enjoyed it and look forward to the rest of the series
