Agent Kit Morris. Has a nice ring, doesn’t it?
It’s a big step up from “wanted criminal” or “that weird con-artist guy with weirder psychic powers”—both of which recently applied to me. But my promotion to MagiPol agent comes with a few drawbacks.
First, supremely talented and effortlessly gorgeous Agent Lienna Shen won’t agree to a dinner date with me. Second, my new assignment has pitted me against a guild with very bad taste in pets. Third, those pets are demons, and those demons want to kill me.
My psychic magic is great for conning people. It doesn’t do jack shit against hellish orcs. If I screw this up, my dinner date will be with a demon—and I’ll be the dinner. Even better, I kind of suspect this supposedly straightforward assignment is actually the tip of an unholy iceberg of power-hungry malefactors bent on destroying all law and order in the city.
I should probably mention that last part to my boss.
We find Kit and Lienna in a new story. Kit is more and more charming and I really appreciated the fact that he still trusts Lienna and doesn’t hesitate to tell her and prove it. It’s a really perfect team, they work very well together, they protect, respect and help each other.
In this book, we learn a little more about Lienna, of course I still have a lot of questions but the other volumes should help me.
I enjoyed seeing Darius and getting a glimpse of some of the other characters. I have to say that the vision of the Crow and Hammer Guild is not the nicest in Kit and Lienna’s mind.
I can’t wait for the part where they all meet.
Quick Word: A nice tome to read even if it lacks a bit of action.
Nous retrouvons Kit et Lienna dans une nouvelle histoire. Kit est de plus en plus charmant et j’ai beaucoup apprécié le fait qu’il est toujours confiance en Lienna et qu’il n’hésite pas à le lui dire et lui prouver. C’est une équipe vraiment parfaite, ils travaillent très bien ensemble, ils se protègent, se respectent et s’entraident.
Dans ce tome, nous en apprenons un peu plus sur Lienna, bien sur j’ai toujours énormément de questions mais bon les autres tomes devraient m’aider.
J’ai aimé voir Darius et apercevoir certains autres personnages. Il faut dire que la vision de la Guilde The Crow and Hammer n’est pas des plus sympa dans l’esprit de Kit et Lienna.
J’ai hâte d’arriver au passage où ils vont tous se rencontrer.
En bref : Un tome agréable à lire même si il manque un peu d’action.
