Mixing high fantasy and urban fantasy, the second novel of the Streets of Maradaine series follows the Rynax brothers' crew of outlaws as they attempt their biggest heist yet and restore justice to the common people.

The neighborhood of North Seleth has suffered--and not just the Holver Alley Fire. Poverty and marginalization are forcing people out of the neighborhood, and violence on the streets is getting worse. Only the Rynax brothers--Asti and Verci--and their Holver Alley Crew are fighting for the common people. They've taken care of the people who actually burned down Holver Alley, but they're still looking for the moneyed interests behind the fire.

The trail of breadcrumbs leads the crew to Lord Henterman, and they plan to infiltrate the noble's house on the other side of the city. While the crew tries to penetrate the heart of the house, the worst elements of North Seleth seem to be uniting under a mysterious new leader. With the crew's attention divided, Asti discovers that the secrets behind the fire, including ones from his past, might be found in Lady Henterman's wardrobe.

We start this story with the crew from Holver Alley breaking into an office building to uncover the machinations behind whoever destroyed their homes. They are adjusting to the displacement the fire caused and the tensions put them from their new situations. Someone has also been buying up the property left after the raging fire. Giving the team one more thing to uncover. And that is just what they do, imbedding themselves in positions to find out the truth behind the loss of Holver Alley. Verci’s wife is against his involvement, but he is not going to let his brother Asti face the upcoming danger alone. The team dynamics are quite interesting with a wide and diverse group of characters all ultimately facing similar circumstances and goals. This was a 4 star read for me. It is definitely not a stand alone and if you missed the first book in the series you will be in the same shoes, I was in, playing some serious catch up. Once I got past playing catch up and trying to understand the whos and whys of what was going on, I discovered a fun, highly entertaining and easy following but gritty tale that incorporates an epic fantasy feel. My recommendation, start with book 1 and your sure to find a series to devour. I received this copy of Lady Henterman's Wardrobe from Berkley Publishing Group - DAW. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Asti and Verci Rynax are still trying to find the person responsible for the Holver Alley fire. They have punished the culprits but there is more to this fire than those that set it. At the same time, someone is buying up all the burnt property. Who is it and why? And who is this new gang that think they can move into Holver Alley while the Rynax brothers are looking into the culprits for the fire? I really enjoyed the Holver Alley Crew was a great story. I was very excited when I received a copy of Lady Henterman’s Wardrobe. Although I have to be honest, at first I thought it was a historical romance until I looked it up and realized it’s the sequel to Holver Alley Crew. I loved coming back to the Rynax brothers. Both have their own issues, secrets and wanting to settle down, but both also are looking to protect their gang and homes. I really enjoyed how you have to be one your toes with everyone. It’s hard to figure out where someone is coming from, what they are planning, and if they are really good or bad or just trying to survive in their own ways. This is a great sequel to Holver Alley Crew. I’m sad to see the sequel won’t be out for a couple years but I am going to keep my eyes out for it. I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.
