    "I find Richelle Read's books fun to read; lots of entertainment but not very thought provoking. I am a young adult and I like to read a lot so I just want to have humor, romance and drama and Richelle delivers. I think her character, Rose, could be a role model for young girls like me everywhere."

    "Another installment in the Night Angel trilogy. Fairly pedestrian, not terribly inspired, but despite that there's fun to be had here. Watching a mere mortal go on a quest to kill a goddess, simply because he wants to help his friends get clear of an immortal struggle, has its moments. Kylar is an interesting hero, and he goes up against some really colorful opponents as he works his way through the plot. I've read much worse."

    "A Way of Shadows definitely has its share of assassins, starting with the main characters, Kylar Stern and Durzo Blint. There's lots of unique characters in this entertaining book but I can't remember any notable female assassins. If you're seeking a book primarily about female assassins, I would look elsewhere. "
