Keera is a killer. As the King's Blade, she is the most talented spy in the kingdom. And the king’s favored assassin. When a mysterious figure moves against the Crown, Keera is called upon to hunt down the so-called Shadow. She tracks her target into the magical lands of the Fae, but Faeland is not what it seems . . . and neither is the Shadow. Keera is shocked by what she learns, and can't help but wonder who her enemy truly is: the King that destroyed her people or the Shadow that threatens the peace?

As she searches for answers, Keera is haunted by a promise she made long ago, one that will test her in every way. To keep her word, Keera must not only save herself, but an entire kingdom.

I'm not sure why I'm "meh" on this one. I usually enjoy the various elements here: a hidden, dying magic (that maybe isn't), mysterious births, female lead (especially with a bad attitude), treachery, and heist-like plot devices.

I didn't like using "halfling" because that word already has a specific meaning for me and it's different from the usage here.

I dunno. It was fine, just maybe not for me.
