The Penitent Damned (The Shadow Campaigns #0.5) by Django Wexler


18191856

Book Blurb:

Alex is a master thief, with dark magic to give her an edge. When she goes up against Duke Orlanko’s Concordat secret police, though, she may have taken on more than she bargained for…

This is a prequel short story to The Thousand Names. It was released for free on io9 — and is also available on the Kindle Store.

My review:

Book 0.5 of The Shadow Campaigns series

I wish I’d read this one first as it explains more about Duke Orlanko and the Black Priests.  The review just prior to this is for Book 1 and I believe I mentioned that I felt kind of lost in the beginning.  If you haven’t started the series yet, start with this.

The main character of this short story is Alex and she will be brought back in to the series at a later date.

I love these little side snippets that short stories give us in a series and this one is particularly good.  If you haven’t read any Django Wexler yet, this is a great taste for what’s to come!
