Synopsis (From Goodreads): 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. Poison dance is approximately 14,000 words, or 54 printed pages.
Review: Thank you to Livia Blackburn for providing me with this novella for review! One thing I have to say: if this is what Livia Blackburn's writing is like, then everyone will be clambering to read Midnight Thief (out July 8th, 2014). I was so upset that Poison Dance was only 54 pages! I needed more of this story and Livia's writing. Poison Dance enraptured me! I sped through it and still wanted more.
The romance in this book... in those rare moments that I did see it come up, it was intense and heated. The characters were also a great addition to this novella. If Poison Dance was longer, I would have loved to see the deeper and kinder side of James also.
