Publisher's Summary

Blacksmith. Thief. Murderer.
After killing one of the Elvraeth to save his friends, Rsiran finds a measure of peace, but fears that it will be short lived. When attacked using knives he forged, he is pulled into a struggle that he wants nothing to do with. Worse, friends have secrets they do not share, secrets that could place both he and Jessa in danger.
Finding answers sends him Sliding throughout the city and beyond, testing his ability all while trying to understand the secret of the alloy that might be the key to their safety. When someone close to him is harmed, he must discover the extent he will go for his friends, and realizes that he might truly have darkness within him.
But that darkness may be all that separates he and his friends from an even greater threat.

An add-on...

Any additional comments?

This book feels like it was added to the series to stretch out the storyline to fill a publishers requirement for material. The repetitive inner monologue seems to account for 50% of the book, yet only varies in content by 1 or 2%. The next 40% are characters not saying anything, but wanting to...but not...but wanting to, but not...etc.

There was a review for the first book that commented on this character flaw, and I felt it in the first book, but assumed it was just because it was the first in the series....nope, it just gets uglier, I was wrong.

Add to this the monotone nature of the reader, and you feel like you might need therapy after this book.

Should you decide to get this book anyway, keep in mind you can skip large sections of chapters without problem...they will repeat the material later.
