Twin Daggers | Book Review + Giveaway


Aissa’s life is a web of carefully constructed lies. She and her twin sister, Zandria, are Magi spies, a magical people most believe to be extinct. And they’re on a mission for revenge. 

This action and adventure spy thriller—a fantasy spin on “Romeo and Juliet” from New York Times bestselling author MarcyKate Connolly—is perfect for fans of Marissa Meyer and Elly Blake and is about to become your new obsession!

By day, Aissa and Zandra play the role of normal young Technocrats eager to fulfill the duties of their new apprenticeships. By night, they plot their revenge to retake their city from the Technocrats. But then Aissa is given a new mission: find and kidnap the heir to the Technocrat throne, who is rumored to be one of the Heartless—a person born without a working heart who survives via a mechanical replacement—and has been hidden since birth.

Aissa is more likely to be caught than to be successful, but she’s never been one to turn down an assignment, even if the hunt is complicated by a kind Technocrat researcher who is determined to find a cure for the Heartless. But when Zandria is captured by the Technocrats, Aissa will do anything to get her sister back. Even if it means abandoning all other loyalties and missions … and risking everything by trusting her sworn enemies.

In the society of MarcyKate Connolly’s Twin Daggers, the Romeo-and-Juliet type feud centers on the Magi and the Technocrats. Twins Aissa and Zandria work as Technocrat apprentices, hiding their true loyalties as Magi spies. However, a new dangerous mission has the potential to turn everything upside-down.

I enjoyed Twin Daggers. It was fun to see how Connolly plays with Shakespeare’s classic, rooting it in an imaginative fantasy world. The action, adventure, and of course, romance kept me reading and left me satisfied in the end. It is an entertaining YA fantasy, and I think fans of the genre could easily enjoy it, like I did.

I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.


MarcyKate Connolly is a New York Times bestselling children’s book author and nonprofit marketing professional living in New England with her family and a grumble of pugs. She can be lured out from her writing cave with the promise of caffeine and new books. Twin Daggers is her debut young adult novel, and she’s also the author of several middle grade fantasy novels including Monstrous and Ravenous, and the Shadow Weaver series.
