Title: Twin Daggers
Author: MarcyKate Connolly
Release Date: August 25th, 2020
Aissa’s life is a web of carefully constructed lies. She and her twin sister, Zandria, are Magi spies, magic users most believe to be extinct. And they’re on a mission for revenge.
This action & adventure spy thriller–a fantasy spin on Romeo and Juliet from New York Times bestselling author MarcyKate Connolly–is perfect for fans of Marissa Meyer and Elly Blake and is about to become your new obsession!
By day, Aissa and Zandria play the role of normal young Technocrats eager to fulfill the duties of their new apprenticeships. By night, they plot their revenge to retake their city from the Technocrats. But then Aissa is given a new mission: find the heir to the Technocrat throne, who is rumored to be one of the Heartless, and kidnap her. Born without a working heart, the Heartless survive with a mechanical replacement.
Aissa is more likely to be caught than to be successful, but she’s never been one to turn down an assignment, even if the hunt is complicated by a kind Technocrat researcher who is determined to find a cure for the Heartless. But when Zandria is captured by the Technocrats, Aissa will do anything to get her sister back. Even if it means abandoning all other loyalties–and missions–and deciding whether or not it’s worth risking everything on getting help from her sworn enemies.
Twin Daggers is an interesting fantasy read that is a somewhat of a Romeo and Juliet retelling. Author MarcyKate Connolly gives readers a set of magical twins that have to keep part of their life secret. This book will transport readers to a magical world full of lies, spies, and magi.
Aissa and Zandria are spunky characters. I really enjoyed their relationship as twins and as spies. They like to get their jobs done, but there are a few obstacles in their way this time. As they are getting closer to Technocrats and trying to seek revenge, readers will see the pressure they are under and how one mistake can change everything.
I give Twin Daggers 3.5 stars. It is an adventurous and interesting fantasy read. I liked the authors writing style as it was easy to read. I wanted a little more backstory but this didn’t prevent me from liking the book. Overall, it was a cool fantasy/retelling that YA readers will enjoy.
