Reviews: Knives In The Dark
Damned good story, mixing intrigue with craziness. Toph is probably the most well-thought out character, and acts very realistically after killing twenty soldiers. Crowning moment of Funny abounds, especially with Kuei, the Earth King. Most definitely a recommended read.
It pretty much nails Mai's character, and while the captive is different, it makes sense, as he's been an assassin for Azula for a couple years at this point. In any case, the writing is the best I've read so far, as the author is great at getting Mai's snark and the assassin's wit across.
