In a fracturing empire spread across savage seas, two people will find a common cause.
Hope, the lone survivor when her village is massacred by the emperor’s forces is secretly trained by a master Vinchen warrior as an instrument of vengeance.
Red, an orphan adopted by a notorious matriarch of the criminal underworld, learns to be an expert thief and con artist.
TOGETHER THEY WILL TAKE DOWN AN EMPIRE.
Review: This book is gripping and exciting – a great start in what promises to be a fantastic fantasy series. As soon as I finished reading, I wanted to read the next one – Hope and Red are brilliantly written characters with a lot of depth to them, and I cannot wait to find out more about them. If you love anything with assassins and complex fast paced storylines, then this is for you.
