Delilah Dirk and the Blades of England lands Delilah and Selim right in the middle of yet more crazy adventures. When Delilah is framed as a spy by an English army officer, her passion for revenge threatens to sever her friendship with Selim. Is she willing to lose the companionship of her only good friend in order to reclaim her reputation? Selim finally gets to see the England he has only imagined, but how will he feel when the combined strains of social conventions and Delilah’s thirst for revenge overwhelm his experience?

The first Delilah Dirk book was recommended to me by a friend and coworker. And I’m SO SO glad that she did. It’s a fantastic story about a pair of unlikely comrades and adventurers, Delilah and Selim. It was such a wonderful surprise, how much I enjoyed the story, and Cliff’s art is absolutely delightful, action-packed, and humorous. It started out as a web comic and was then turned into books. I’m really excited for this next adventure! If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend checking it out!
