    One thought on “The Conspiracy”

    1. Sequels and second novels always make me nervous. I can’t stop myself from worrying… What if the previous book was just a fluke? What if something bad happens to my favorite characters? Etc. I especially worry when the first book happens to be a book I adore, so understandably my knees were shaking a bit when I hit the download button for Dakin’s newest book, The Conspiracy. In the past 6 months I have treated The Ritual, Dakin’s first book in the Theft and Sorcery series, as the literar [...]

    2. This is the second in the 'Theft and Sorcery' series. I really enjoyed the first book, 'The Ritual', and this one is even better. It's not serious or grimdark or heavy or profound, but it is a whole lot of fun. It wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea, let's get that straight right from the start; there's a fair amount of graphic sex, although nothing kinky or disturbing to my eyes, and there's swearing of a similarly earthy nature, so anyone who's bothered by that should steer clear.Although this b [...]

    3. Synopsis:Vaysita (Sita), a half-elf orphan, has been palace-bred and trained all her life. Adopted by Queen of Arlis she was made the companion and bodyguard of her son, prince Tio, a very handsome jerk. Soon some extra-curricular subjects were added to Sita's normal daily schedule: lock-picking, burglary, close combat, dagger throwing and such – not exactly skills expected from a high-born courtier who calls the Queen her Aunt Tima.One night Sita is sent by her shadowy tutor to rob her own ca [...]

    4. I really enjoyed this. I enjoyed the first book set in this world, and I think Erica Dakin's writing improved as she wrote - this is a little more complex. Set some years after The Ritual we can see the effects of the changes to the society the new queen set in place at the end of that first book. In fact the central figure of this book is a member of the queen's court - but one who has been picked out for special training and a specialist role. There are similarities with The Ritual - again the [...]

    5. While I really loved The Ritual, this next book in the series didn't grab me the same way. I thought the writing was solid. Very descriptive - an interesting quest, although I thought it could have been editing down a bit. I particularly enjoyed the relationship between the protagonist and the prince and thought she experienced some nice growth.My main bump was that I the love interest Kai, felt really young to me much of the time. Mostly in how he spoke but sometimes in how he behaved. And that [...]
