Amir Qureshi knew his life would never be the same the day he met Naděžda Ollerton-Cerná, much to his chagrin. With her sharp wit and brazen charm, Naděžda is as infuriating as she is irresistible, and Amir cannot stop himself from falling in love with her—even though they can never be together.

As an ally to the Order of the Crystal Daggers, under the command of Naděžda’s indominable mother, Amir knows there is no place for love in the life of a spy.

My Review:

C.S. Johnson writes so well and fluidly! Night of Blood and Beauty will transport you to another place with a mix of cultures and another time - Constantinople 1845. There's spying, lying, kidnapping, and more in this romantic adventure. The characters' thoughts and feelings seem so real. The dialogue is natural. The only thing that didn't seem realistic was Naděžda casually talking while being stitched up.

This is a bittersweet prequel novella and the characters will become better known in the series. If you like historical fiction with rebels, spies, and romance, then you'll enjoy The Order of the Crystal Daggers!

Disclosure: I received an eARC of this book and this is my honest and voluntary review.
