James is skilled, efficient, and deadly, a hired blade navigating the shifting alliances of a deteriorating Assassin’s Guild. Then he meets Thalia, an alluring but troubled dancing girl who offers him a way out—if he’ll help her kill a powerful nobleman. With the Guild falling apart, it just might be worth the risk. But when you live, breathe, and love in a world that’s forever flirting with death, the slightest misstep can be poison.

After reading this prequel POISON DANCE, I am so ready for MIDNIGHT THIEF. (Why is it not in my hands yet?! Oh yeah…must wait for release date, dang it.) I love a well-crafted fantasy world, and, after this scrumptious snippet, I think I’ve found one.
Being a prequel (54-pages), it’s not big. It sets up a dark tone and some incredibly characters, but doesn’t have enough time to delve into anything. I think James (the narrator for the prequel) comes in more in MIDNIGHT THIEF. I honestly can’t wait. He played Mister Cool, Calm, and Deadly. Soft on the outside, but with a dark undercurrent. In 54-pages? That’s pretty impressive.
Personally, I think I’d have preferred to read MIDNIGHT THIEF and then gone for this prequel. It leaves me a little too unsatisfied. Like I licked a piece of cake, but didn’t get to decide if I wanted to gobble the whole piece or not. I want the rest of my cake, okay?!!
With a medieval setting, dancers, knives, and sneaky assassins, this is a fantasy-series I’m keen to get started on. Bring out the deaaaaad!
Thank you to the author for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.
