I don't know how I originally heard about this one but it went on my wishlist in October/November last year and I've been waiting ever since! To ease the suffering there is a prequel novella available now, Poison Dance, which I have for review. Anyway, it's fantasy and this year I'm determined to read more fantasy (both Adult and YA) and the synopsis for Midnight Thief intrigues me.
