The Glass Blade
Lean, mean, and a fighting machine. That could describe lovely Jessop, psychologically and physically scarred at the hands of a former Infinity Hunter with the catchy name of Falco Bane. Jessop plots her way into joining the all-male fraternity of the Infinity Hunters, waiting to rescue them at an opportune moment, and then accompanying wounded and noble Kohl back to the Glass Blade, where the Hunters spent their spare time wearing black uniforms, practicing fighting in a place called the Pit, and worrying about Falco, who was once one of them, and is now their worst enemy. Soon Kohl’s hazel-gold eyes and kind manner work on Jessop, who becomes his bed-partner, as well as sparring partner. Or does Jessop have a more sinister motivation?
