Sam Sykes returns with a new fantasy that introduces to an unforgettable outcast magician caught between two warring empires. Among humans, none have power like mages. And among mages, none have will like Sal the Cacophony. Once revered, now vagrant, she walks a wasteland scarred by generations of magical warfare. The Scar, a land torn between powerful empires, is where rogue mages go to disappear, disgraced soldiers go to die and Sal went with a blade, a gun and a list of names she intended to use both on. But vengeance is a flame swift extinguished. Betrayed by those she trusted most, her magic torn from her and awaiting execution, Sal the Cacophony has one last tale to tell before they take her head. All she has left is her name, her story and the weapon she used to carved both. Vengeance is its own reward....

Seven Blades in Black Reviews
Longer review later when the book is actually published but I really enjoyed this book. Quite possibly one of the best I have read so far this year. I would give it a solid 4.5 stars
I recieved an eARC to give an honest review
I'm really glad I received this book from netgalley - I can tell how much I enjoyed it because although it was long, I was sad when it ended. This is the story of Sal the Cacophony.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review via NetGalley. Thank you publisher!
3 out of 5 stars
I would like to start with the cover - the cover is one of the best covers I have seen in a while in fantasy. In a world where graphic covers rule the genre - it was refreshing to see a beautifully rendered painting. The color scheme and the subject is just superb! Lauren (art director of Orbit) and Jeremy Willson (the artist) created a one of a kind beautiful cover that I honestly wouldn’t ...more
DNF @ 49%
Sadly, this book was not my cup of tea. I was so thrilled to win an ARC of the book from the publisher via Goodreads and I loved the start of the book, but I’m halfway in and I’ve lost all motivation to continue. I find myself disconnected from the characters and bored by the plot and repetitiveness, so this one is a DNF for me. 😕
I feel like everyone my age is getting into relationships and growing up and I’m just here getting lazier and finding more books to add to my TBR
