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 is 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 the 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.

I enjoyed reading Midnight Thief by Livia Blackburne, but it didn’t shine brightly from other fantasy and medieval books I’ve already read. On the other hand, it does have a very exciting and surprising plot twist which makes you read further on. I find that the beginning of the book is slow and confusing due to Blackburne changing perspectives between the two main characters. I do like that the characters are not perfect, each of them has faults, that creates more depth and I can relate to the characters. Midnight Thief is a teen book, so I don’t recommend it to young readers. I give this novel a 3.5/5 star. There is a sequel, so I’m definitely going to read it.

Real twisty and dark! I liked it, but like others said, it moved rather slowly in the beginning. Otherwise, it was really well written.

AMAZING! I will admit that any book with a female assassin is usually on my to read list, however, this one really is worth a recommendation. This novel is fantasy mixed with a medieval time period and some Demon Cat Riders thrown in. Don't start it right before bed time unless you are prepared to lose sleep.

This was a pretty interesting read. A little slow at the beginning but it eventually picks up and the main characters Kyra and Tristam will keep you captivated till the end.
