My Fair Assassin by C.J. Anaya is the first book in the Paranormal Misfits series. Crysta lives every day trying to fit in and make it to the next day. She dyes her naturally white hair so she'll look like a typical teenage girl. She even had herself emancipated to avoid any more foster families. Add on her weird ice abilities, her weird eating habits, and this weird trend of any man that she meets becoming stalkerish and obsessive; she's definitely not like everyone else. Then a man breaks into her apartment with the intent to kill her, but curiosity compels him to know more and to protect her. She thinks he's insane, but he insists that there's more to her than she thinks.
C.J. Anaya creates a fantastic and unique take on the Fae myth! My Fair Assassin is funny, clever, witty, romantic, with a strong and real heroine in Crysta. She has a dark and tragic back story, but her insecurities make her easy to relate to, a real person with real issues. Her internal dialogue makes her instantly likable. The play with language is fun and delightful. Crysta uses specific phrases that are common to us, but to Jareth (the man that breaks into her apartment), it's strange and confusing. Their banter often leads to a humorous place, like him thinking the phrase “throwing in the towel” means to literally throw a towel. My Fair Assassin is a quick read that leaves you begging for more! The end is clearly just the beginning. I can't wait for the next book!
