Friday Finds (2)

Friday Finds is a weekly event hosted by Should Be Reading. Each Friday (or sporadically as I'm doing),  you write a new post about all the books that you've discovered during the week. They can be a new book that you discovered through a recommendation or a book that you ordered and are now ready to devour. It's all up to you and what you've found that you want to read.

I won't lie to you. I ordered a bunch of books recently, so I have quite a few books that I could share with you. Instead, I'm going to focus on a book giveaway that I won because the book wasn't really on my radar, even though I had it on my Goodreads TBR shelf.

I recently started following Chick Lit Chickadees, and I saw that they were doing a giveaway for their one month anniversary. I love entering to win things. I really do, so I entered thinking that it would be cool to win. Well... I won their mystery book giveaway. I wouldn't know what the prize was until it got to my house and I could unwrap it. Can you imagine how much wondering I did? Let me tell you... it was a lot.

The book I won is called Midnight Thief (Midnight Thief #1) by Livia Blackburne. I'm excited to read it, although it might be some time before I get around to it. It seems interesting, and I'm always willing to give fantasy a chance. I'll review it here to let everyone know what I think of it.

Synopsis (from Goodreads):
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.
