Review: Ninja at First Sight by Penny Reid

Title: Ninja at First Sight
By: Penny Reid
Series: Knitting in the City #4.75
My Copy:
The BookWhisperer's Rating: 

'Ninja at First Sight' is a prequel standalone novella for Knitting in the City book 5, 'Happily Ever Ninja'.

'Ninja at First Sight' is 40k words.

This novalla is the expanded origin story for Greg and Fiona. The first 16k words of this novella are from the short scenes included in 'Scenes from the City', which is no longer for sale.

*Fails body about* How in the world do I wait for the next book?  Why haven’t I mastered time travel so that I can go in the future to get “Happily Ever Ninja” and all the rest of the books that Penny hasn’t released yet and then come back to now so that I can read them?  It would totally be worth all the math equations that I would have to do.

I thought that Ashley and Drew were going to be my favorite of the couples in this series.  I mean, Drew reads poetry, classic novels, and carries a gun – could a man get any hotter?  Um, I think so and I think that man is Greg.  And I think that Fiona is quite possibly the coolest person/character ever.  Her backstory has been extremely interesting and you get little pieces uncovered as the story goes on.  But when I loved her most were the times where she was with Greg.  Their banter, wit, and debates started a friendship that lead into a beautiful romance, a perfect romance.  And the ending…the ending left me speechless for a good amount of time. It took me many moments to gather myself together and run to see when “Happily Ever Ninja” comes out…this led to the failing of my body and the pile of shredded erasers near my time travel equations.

Look, I’m not going to write a lot because if there is one thing that you should know is that Penny Reid is one of my favorites and never fails in her writing, her characters, and her plots.  She probably doesn’t even fail as a human being.  Her books should be an automatic buy people, that is how good she is. Read this entire series because it will blow your mind, make you happy, and put a smile on your face.

*Checks Amazon to see if “Happily Ever Ninja” is available again, for the 50th time today*
