The Assassins of Tamurin is an epic fantasy novel about a Dark Action Girl Mole who wants the truth, an infallible Chessmaster queen who wants revenge, and a noble young king who wants to save his nation.It takes place in the fictional Empire of Durdane, modeled on Imperial China. At least, it was the Empire of Durdane up until a few hundred years ago when the territory north of the Great Pearl River was conquered and enslaved by the Exile barbarians from across the Juren Gap. The rest of the empire soon fell into civil war and broke up into the southern Despotates.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_3'); })Ever since this Great Partition, the Despotates have been in a gradual, accelerating state of decay. The Exiles are in a constant state of tension with the Despotates, but both sides are too afraid of each other to actually wage war and accomplish anything. So most of the Despots are content to live in luxury and exploit their people for all their worth. The poor are getting poorer as the rich get richer. It is in the poorest, most primitive, southernmost village of Riversong, at the end of the Wing River and the very edge of civilization, where we meet the protagonist Lale.

Genre Savvy: Lale, to a degree, being an actress in tales very much like the novel.

Literal Genie: The girls believe that Nilang's curse will activate if they so much as think about betraying Mother. Due to the Exact Words used it will only activate if they tell Mother's secrets- which leaves plenty of other ways the girls could betray Mother.
