30 Day Book Challenge - Day 2

Time for day 2 of the 30 day book challenge!  Feel free to click on the links if you want to check out what I chose before.

Day 01 – The best book you read this year
Day 02 – A book that you’ve read more than 3 times

There are a lot of books that can fit in this category.  The Harry Potter novels, the Women of the Otherworld series... even Gaiman's Sandman series of graphic novels.  But I'm going to choose one of my all-time, and not well known, favorites.

I actually picked up the third book in this series first.  The series is called Cloak and Dagger.  It's about two friends, one an aristocrat and the other a peasant, and their misadventures as apprentice assassins.  When I finished that book, I knew I had to get the rest.  Anvil of the Sun is truly the beginning, before they ever became assassins and were very close to going rogue.  All because Jen (the main female character) can't trust that the Assassin's Guild won't do anything about rescuing her aunt (who also happens to be their top operative).  It's a fantastic fantasy series and I just wish that Anne Lesley Groell had written more of them.
