Description

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. Praise for Midnight Thief "Blackburne's fast-paced fantasy will please fans of Leigh Bardugo and Tamora Pierce."

Professional reviews

"Bianca Amato employs a cool, calm narration style for the first book in this fast-paced fantasy series. The story is told from the points of view of Kyra, a thief who has been on her own for as long as she can remember, and Tristam, a young knight. Amato shows her skill by portraying Tristam in an even, slightly deeper voice, while Kyra has a rougher accent and projects more emotion. Supporting characters, including members of the Assassins Guild and the Palace Guards, are depicted in unique voices that make them easy to differentiate. As Kyra and Tristam form an unlikely partnership, it's Kyra's story that evolves. Amato shows Kyra's struggle with who she is and the choices she's made by varying her tone. Listeners will eagerly await the next installment. E.N. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
