MIDNIGHT THIEF by Livia Blackburne | Goodreads

Coming from Thomas Dunne Books – July 8th, 2014

Midnight Thief

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.

GIDEON SMITH AND THE BRASS DRAGON by David Barnett | Goodreads

Coming from Tor books – September 16th, 2014

Gideon Smith and the Brass dragon

The story picks up three months after the end of Gideon Smith and the Mechanical Girl, and takes Gideon and his companions to America, which is very different to the United States we know.

After the failed revolution of 1775, the British Empire still controls most of the Eastern seaboard. The Mason-Dixon Wall runs clear across the country, cutting off British lands from the Confederacy in the Southern areas and the wild badlands of Texas, comprising a number of feudal fiefdoms run by former British Governors who seceded from British control.

When I'm in the zone I can flip book pages faster than the eye can see - screaming "More Input!" I'm a book, yarn, & art supply hoarding goblin who loves to draw, make toys and craft all sorts of creepy cute things. My current habit is to listen to audio books while I'm arting it up!

    I’m so happy Disney-Hyperion approved my request for Midnight Thief, it was my first from them. I got the prequel novella Poison Dance from the author to review a while ago and it got me super pumped to read this!

    I have the Midnight Thief and I’m planning to read it soon. Hopefully it’s as good as it sounds.
    First time I hear about Gideon Smith and the Brass Dragon, I like the blurb, so I’m going to check it out.

      The Gideon Smith and the Brass Dragon is actually the second book. You must must read the first one! It’s so freaking fun. It was like reading an Indiana Jones movie but had an urban fantasy feel but as alternate history steampunk instead. SOO much fun. One of my favorites from last year. =)
