I skipped a few Teaser Tuesdays because I wasn't sufficiently enchanted with any of the books I was reading to share them. This Tuesday is different.
'Slowly, she withdrew the tension wrench, stuck it to the lodestone on her bracer, and reached for a wrench with an extra long handle. When the lock clicked open a moment later, the lock plate gave way and a tiny needle stabbed out of the locking mechanism.'
"I am Ilanna, Journeyman of House Hawk. I do the impossible."
A cunning thief of unrivaled ingenuity, Ilanna is determined to secure her freedom. Nothing will prevent her escape from the Night Guild's callous cruelty, not even the most powerful man in Praamis, Duke Phonnis.
Commanding a crew of pickpockets, bounty hunters, poisoners, and assassins, Ilanna schemes to disgrace the Duke. She must survive blackmail, a bloodthirsty rival syndicate, and enemies within her own House to claim her spoils: vengeance for the deaths of her friends and gold to buy independence.
But all Ilanna's skill may not suffice to protect the one person who matters most: her son.
