  Good Afternoon all welcome to Wednesday . today we are going to review the second book in the Queen of Thieves series . THIEF OF THE NIGHT GUILD by one of my favourite authors Andy Peloquin.

                          BOOK BLURB 

"I am Ilanna, Journeyman of House Hawk. I do the impossible."

A cunning thief of unrivaled ingenuity, Ilanna is determined to secure her freedom. Nothing will prevent her escape from the Night Guild's callous cruelty, not even the most powerful man in Praamis, Duke Phonnis.

Commanding a crew of pickpockets, bounty hunters, poisoners, and assassins, Ilanna schemes to disgrace the Duke. She must survive blackmail, a bloodthirsty rival syndicate, and enemies within her own House to claim her spoils: vengeance for the deaths of her friends and gold to buy independence.

But all Ilanna's skill may not suffice to protect the one person who matters most: her son.

                          MY REVIEW 

        WELCOME BACK TO THE GUILD .  This is the second book in the series and Ilanna has grown up and has become one of the best thief's in the guild . She is cunning and has a vision of buying her freedom from the guild . There are many obstacles standing in her way from blackmail and a rival syndicate . Will she survive the onslaught to get out to the only thing that matters in her life her son,
        I love  all the characters in this book but Ilanna is my favourite girl . She is kick ass and takes no prisoners . She has been through a lot but it seems the more she gets knocked down the more she gets up and fights back. She goes through a lot in this installment .  She has taken all that the guild has thrown at her. She has honed her skills and plans on using them to save herself and get out of the guild . To the only person that she loves , her son , the only person that matters to her.   She is five years older and tougher then nails . I so love her attitude and her guts . She will do anything to survive and be free . 
  I can't tell you about all the characters in this book cause I will be writing forever . But the guild members that can call Ilanna a friend are all there to watch her back and help her out in the heist that she is planning to pay for her way out . The characters that you think are bad turn out to be on the Ilanna's side and the ones closest to her are the ones that can not be trusted . I will say you will fall for these characters , they are very complex and deep . You will also want to slap a couple of them upside the head a few times . 
       While I was reading this book , which I couldn't put down , I could see the book in my mind . Playing like a movie . Which to me is a sign of a very well written story . It takes you on a roller coaster ride . You will be on the edge of your seat most of the time . You will cheer for Ilanna and her group of thieves . You will have a couple of chuckles along the way . Trust me your heart will melt when you read her story with her son . I was an emotional wreck when I was reading parts of this story . This isn't your run of the mill book where there is a happy ever after in the end . You will have your heart broken into a million pieces .  The ending will destroy you trust me on this , I really just wanted to yell at the author for what he did . If you like fantasy this is the book for you . If you like dark fantasy this is the book for you. It is going to be one of the books I read over and over . This isn't a stand alone , you have to read the first book to keep everything straight .  So if you want a great dark series that will keep you up all night long turning the pages . This is the series for you . A definite must read for your summer reading list .
