Friday Memes: Daughter of Dusk by Livia Blackburne

Happy Friday everybody!!
Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

This week I am spotlighting Daughter of Dusk by Livia Blackburne. This is the sequel to Midnight Thief. Here is the description from Amazon:
After learning the truth about her bloodlines, Kyra can't help but feel like a monster.

Though she's formed a tentative alliance with the Palace, Kyra must keep her identity a secret or risk being hunted like the rest of her Demon Rider kin. Tristam and the imprisoned assassin James are among the few who know about her heritage, but when Tristam reveals a heartbreaking secret of his own, Kyra's not sure she can trust him. And with James's fate in the hands of the palace, Kyra fears that he will give her away to save himself.

As tensions rise within Forge's Council, and vicious Demon Rider attacks continue in surrounding villages, Kyra knows she must do something to save her city. But she walks a dangerous line between opposing armies: will she be able to use her link to the Demon Riders for good, or will her Makvani blood prove to be deadly?

In this spellbinding sequel to Midnight Thief, Kyra and Tristam face their biggest battle yet as they grapple with changing allegiances, shocking deceit, and vengeful opponents.
Beginning:
The snow was a problem, the way it crunched beneath Kyra's shoes and bore marks of her passing. 
Friday 56:
Kyra stumbled just slightly when she noticed Tristam's brother Henril looking at them, his brow furrowed. But it was the sight of Willem dancing nearby which brought her to a complete stop.

  1. I love the covers of this series but I'm not so sure it's for me. That beginning definitely sounds foreboding though. Enjoy the read!

  3. Although this is not a genre I usually read, the book's opening made me want to know more. It sounds like a good story.
    My Friday post features The Collected Stories of Eudora Welty.
