Review: The Seamstress & The Sable Knight by Mary Sneddon

The Seamstress & The Sable Knight
Mary Sneddon
Young Adult Fantasy
January 15th 2015


All Arianna wants is to be left alone. She’s finally got life working out for her. She got her own seamstress shop, her customers pay well and appreciate her attention to quality, and most of all, she is finally on the books—a real citizen. A taxpayer and everything.

And that’s when everything goes wrong. A dark and deadly knight on a black horse shows up outside her shop, asking for her. Her past, in the form of a roguish, handsome thief wants a dangerous favor. And her dreams…those are the worst part. Why would a forgotten and forbidden goddess want to talk with her anyway?

Now Arianna is on the run, and the past is close on her heels. The Sable Knights want her dead, believing she’s the center of a prophecy foretelling the doom of their Order, and their Father God. Beasts of legends have been summoned to kill her, and her friends are collateral damage. But enough is enough. Arianna isn’t without her own power, and she’s willing to go up against just about anything to take her life back.

It’s time to kill a god.

My Review:

My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

*Note: I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*

This book was a great story. The characters were fun and relateable, yet realistic enough to understand. I loved Arianna. She was such a strong character who made her own choices.

The action kept me on the edge of my seat as I worried on whether or not the Knights would catch her and kill her. The whole scenario of this novel had me worried on who would come up on top and be victorious. Would Arianna live to fight another day? Would she be able to save the day?
