Another excellent adventure with characters that are interesting and villains you love to hate Nail biting situations which in a moment make you want to be part if the action More of the same please. » The Slave City: Sword and Steampunk (The Viper and the Urchin Book 3) ✓ I picked the first one of this series not long after it came out, as I was intrigued by the tagline, an assassin with a fear of blood I then swiftly moved onto book two and then the origin story of one of the characters, Rory They are all excellent books, which is why I m happy to note there is now the third book in the series available, with a fourth on its way, I believe Celine Jeanjean is undoubtedly an excellent writer and storyteller, as well as being highly adept at world building, her writing puts me in mind of Robin Hobb I m very much looking forward to being a part of the continued adventures of the Viper and the Urchin Highly recommended. When I began reviewing this series, I looked at the characters in terms of three sliding scales competence, proactivity, and sympathy At first Longinus the elegant, mysterious assassin seems to be supremely competent, proactively controlling his life and choices, if as a poisoner he s somewhat unsympathetic While Rory, the street urchin, is at the mercy of a pitiless world, an orphan whose dire circumstances should demand our sympathy. Only Longinus has a showstopper flaw for an assassin he faints at the sight of blood Not only does that punch holes in his competence and proactivity, but it immediately sends our sympathy levels soaring Rory, on the other hand, is just so darn competent at being an urchin Taking proactive control of her own destiny even if blackmail the assassin into making her his apprentice might not seem the idea
I was excited to hear of a new book in the story of former street urchin, Rory and her friend, Longinus the assassin This time they leave Damsport to travel with Cruikshank, the Machinist, who has been sent on a covert mission to the city of Azyr Believing they will help Raheeme, a Reformist, to bring slavery to an end and provide water for the poorest of the city, they set out on the smuggling ship of Adelma, a massive, powerful woman they will be glad to have on their side But they soon discover they are pawns in a power struggle in a hot, dangerous city and Rory is glad to have brave Varanguard, Rafe, accompanying them, even though her feelings for him are still complicated. The larger than life characters in the Viper and the Urchin series are vivid, extraordinary, yet so real I cannot help feeling affection for Rory, and Longin Celine Jeanjean has become one of my favourite authors on the strength of the three Viper and the Urchin books I have reread all of the books and joined the mailing lit to ensure I don t miss any In the last book Rafe disappointed me but I felt he redeemed himself in this book An assassin who faints at the sight of blood, fantastic world building and Rory, what s not to love.
