Starting with: Assassin’s Apprentice – In this beautifully written series of 9 books you’ll find great world building that doesn’t get in the way of characters and plot. Make sure you read this when you’re in a good mood because when bad things happen, they always happen to Fitz (the protagonist).

I rather enjoyed reading through this manga series. Bear in mind it’s not for everyone with it’s gore warning. The twists and turns in the story kept me entertained for my travels home. It ended completely differently to how I expected but left it open for a sequel which is currently in the works with 4 books already published.
