Return to Book Page. Revenge and responsibility, confrontation and consequences. A hot desert land of diverse peoples dealing with demons, mages, natural disasters … and the Black Rose assassins. On a quest for vengeance, Shukara arrives in the city of Mask having already endured two years of hardship and loss.

Her pouch is stolen by Tamira, a young street-smart thief, who throws away some of the rarer reagents that Shukara needs for her magick. Tracking down the thief, and being unfamiliar with Mask, Shukara shows mercy to Tamira in exchange for her help in replacing what has been lost. Together they brave the intrigues of Mask, and soon discover that they have a mutual enemy in the Black Rose, an almost legendary band of merciless assassins.
Mask is a living, breathing city, from the prosperous Merchant Quarter whose residents struggle for wealth and power, to the Poor Quarter whose residents struggle just to survive. It is a coming of age tale for the young thief, Tamira, as well as a tale of vengeance and discovery. There is also a moral ambiguity in the story, with both the protagonists and antagonists learning that whatever their intentions or justification, actions have consequences.

Dec 04, Steve Harrison rated it it was amazing. The Thorns of a Black Rose is a wonderfully evocative, inventive and exciting fantasy adventure set in a magical world reminiscent of the Arabian nights. The three main characters, Tamira, Shukara and Jassan are well drawn and their separate and joint quests are compelling. The excellent writing makes their entire world believable and I look forward to more of their adventures and, indeed, other works by David Craig.
Very highly recommended. View 2 comments. Sep 27, Xerxes rated it it was amazing. This book reads like an RPG of the Desert.
The world is rich and diverse in its settings inspired by Moroccan, Ancient Egypt and the Maghreb. I also love the hint of the Assassin Creed Influence here. The characters in this story are finely developed. The magicker has no choice but to find the thief and reclaim what is hers. The Poor Quarter with its beggars and thieves holds no threat for the likes of her. Tamira and Shukara share the narrative voice in Thorns of a Black Rose, taking turns to drive the story onwards and reveal their secrets to one another as they form an unlikely alliance.Transparent Black and white.
