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 discovering the upcoming Midnight Thief when a fellow blogger added it to good reads I was more than excited when Ms Blackburne emailed me asking if I would like to read the prequel novella. She gave fair warning it was a self-published title but after reading the blurb for MT I was anxious to get a sneak peek at this world. As far as novellas go they are a hit or miss for me. Though most of the time they don’t add to the series for me they do give you a glimpse at a certain character you might want to know a bit more about or a certain event but often I find they fill rushed and you can tell they are just fillers. Not Poison Dance. If this is a self-published title I’m doubly excited to see how Midnight Thief turns out. This story read quickly and was engaging and I look forward to reading more of this world soon. Based on what I’ve read I think fans of Maas’s Throne of Glass and/or Snyder’s Healer Series (both of which I LOVE) will enjoy this world. Pick it up before MT releases in a few months!!!
