Amra is the possessor of multiple knives, multiple bolt-holes but has few friends. Thus, when her best friend is murdered she wades in boots, knives and all to mete out justice, or is it revenge, to the evil-doer. She's a great character, beautifully described, as are the others that she encounters in this suspenseful, intriguing and often humorous tale. It's packed with action, monsters and magic and set in an intriguing world. Never a dull moment even in the quiet ones, it's a thoroughly enjoyable read. Highly recommended. I've just finished the next in the series The Thief Who Spat in Luck's Good Eye and it's an equally pleasurable read!
