*Book source ~ Many thanks to the author for providing a review copy in exchange for an honest review.
In the world of Riyria Royce Melborn and Hadrian Blackwater are unlikely partners. Royce is a thief and assassin and Hadrian is an honorable soldier determined to see the good in people and to help where he can. Royce decides to teach his new partner a lesson in trusting strangers.
Ok, I have no idea how these two guys became partners in the procurement business in the first place, but I am officially hooked on this world and on Royce and Hadrian in particular. There isn’t a lot of world-building in this short tale, but what there is only makes me want more. The hook is the back and forth between Royce and Hadrian. The dialogue and dynamics between the two is awesome. I am seriously chomping at the bit to read more and I’m thankful there are several stories about them out there for me to devour.
