Growing up on Forge's streets has taught Kyra how to stretch a coin. And when that's not enough, her uncanny ability to scale walls and bypass guards helps her take what she needs.

But when the leader of the Assassins Guild offers Kyra a lucrative job, she hesitates. She knows how to get by on her own, and she's not sure she wants to play by his rules. But he is persistent-and darkly attractive-and Kyra can't quite resist his pull.

Tristam of Brancel is a young Palace knight on a mission. After his best friend is brutally murdered by the Demon Riders, a clan of vicious warriors who ride bloodthirsty wildcats, Tristam vows to take them down. But as his investigation deepens, he finds his efforts thwarted by a talented thief, one who sneaks past Palace defenses with uncanny ease.

When a fateful raid throws Kyra and Tristam together, the two enemies realize that their best chance at survival-and vengeance-might be to join forces. And as their loyalties are tested to the breaking point, they learn a startling secret about Kyra's past that threatens to reshape both their lives.In her arresting debut novel, Livia Blackburne creates a captivating world where intrigue prowls around every corner-and danger is a way of life.

  1. I’m hoping to start this one this week and I am EXCITED. Did you read POISON DANCE (it’s the prequel novella)? It was very good, and if that’s any indicator, MIDNIGHT THIEF will be pretty darn good!

  2. I love how nowadays the publishers decided to give YA fantasy books a more subtle and unique cover instead of featuring covers of the cliche beautiful girl in a prom dress. That being said this book sounds really interesting. Can’t wait to read it.

    My WOW          

    • It does sound a bit different from a lot of the other YA fantasy novels out there – that’s one of the things that drew me to it.

      Thanks for stopping by!:)

  3. Are you seriously telling me this amazing book releases in a couple of days?! You miss alot of god stuff if you miss a few weeks around the blogs, sheesh. Although that Kyra’s past plot twist is kinda putting me of a bit, I still want to read that danger. 😉
    My WoW, and when you hop over, come check out my Two Year Blogoversary Giveaway!

    • Yep, I know. I almost missed this one too after being on hiatus in June. Plot twists involving a character’s past always make me a bit nervous too – sometimes they seem to start consuming the story and take over the plot.

      Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
