I always enjoy Ms. Dawson’s Blud novellas and The Damsel and the Daggerman was no exception. Returning to Sang and the wonderful caravan of Criminy Stain, this short vignette features two new characters, Marco the “Deadly Daggerman” and Jacinda a fearless journalist. Watching the interplay between these two while also getting some background on the familiar cast at the caravan and a look at the culture at large was the best of both worlds. While I don’t know how well this story would play to those unfamiliar with the Sang universe, for those of us who love this world The Damsel and the Daggerman was an excellent installment brimming with fun, thrilling excitement and steam.
I Give The Damsel and the Daggerman a happy four stars. ★★★★
