Official Summary: “Fight for your dream or they will take it from you.
Loren dreams of escaping her cruel parents and becoming a great thief: Nightblade, a warrior of darkness and a champion of the light. Following the fugitive sorcerer Xain out of her forest home, she wears a stolen noble’s cloak of fine black cloth and carries a dagger the world has not seen in centuries—a blade that can turn enemies to allies when she least expects it.
Yet something keeps her from using that dagger to take a life.
Soon she crosses paths with the smuggler family of Yerrin, invoking their wrath by stealing their most precious treasure. Yerrin’s reach is long, and they will not stop until they silence Loren forever.
If she can survive, Loren may become the most infamous thief in the world. But if she fails, she will be only the first to burn in a war that threatens all the nine lands.” – Goodreads

Review: I have been following the Author for some time on YouTube and Twitch. I already knew I was going to like the book before I read it, talk about work ethics. Right anyway onto the book. It was really good for the first book in the series. It didn’t overload you with a lot of information, but you felt like there was a lot to be learned. It was one of the stories that just left the door slightly ajar just enough to pipe your interest for the rest of the series, to see the rest of the world being built.
Really hyped to see where the Author takes this series. My brain is already thinking of multiple ideas and routes the Author could take, or won’t take. Either way, I think the world being built is going to be very highly detailed. It was a very fast paced read, I managed to read it all in pretty much one sitting.
I have said it many times before, I will continue to say it many times after. I like when the main character isn’t a superhuman crazy ninja person. They have to learn to get good at their skills, they fail but they learn from their mistakes. That they are not perfect. It adds so much more layers and reality to a character.
