A different way to see thieves

A great book with vivid descriptions that make it easy to read and see in your mind's eye what is going on. Each chapter is a story in itself within the book. I loved each story as it was always a new feat and yet allowed time to pass within the world without doing the in-between filler that often spoils a book. Well written, and can't wait to read book two.

I really hope to see a followup soon!

I was a fan of the author's Valducan urban fantasy books, so I thought I would give this a shot. i'm really glad I did. The stories revolve around a thief named Ahren, who ends up joining The Tyenee, the secret thieves guild, after he is betrayed on a job. He is branded the Black Raven because of the betrayal, and is convinced by a Tyenee leader that it is a good nickname. In fact, he leaves black raven feathers at the scenes of his crimes as a calling card. He has a series of adventures, with successes and failures, all the while fighting against an enemy that has the power of a demon to assist them. The characters are compelling, especially Ahren, and he has more than his share of failures to go along with the triumphs, including losing someone very close to him. The villains are well thought out, with the actions scenes being exciting an believable. The villains are not over the top Bond villains, but realistically written. I am really excited to see where he takes the character in future books. Any fan of Alex Bledsoe's Eddie LaCrosse books or Brent Week's Night Angel books should really enjoy this book.

Not what I expected

Would you try another book from Seth Skorkowsky and/or R. C. Bray?

This is a collection of short stories with the same characters in the same world. I would have preferred a single story.
