I am not displaying the Synopsis for the second book for spoilery reasons but I will put one for the first book!
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’s 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 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.

My mini review for Daughter of Dusk book 2:
This series holds a special place in my heart. I went into this book having read and loved the first one with high hopes and I was not disappointed. The story zips along at a wonderful pace. The chapters have that really addictive habit of finishing on a cliffhanger, so you find yourself forced into the next chapter in order to discover what happens.
If you love young adult fantasy, please oh please pick this series up in beautiful hardcover. You won’t regret it.
