"Every legend begins with a lie."

Laeli Tavens, a thief shaped by the Sky-worshipping mythos of her island, stalks High Lord Lawrence Anderton across the country. She must save her twelve-year-old sister Elaina, whom the obsessive Anderton has kidnapped as bait.

Elaina copes with brutalities and tortures she cannot understand, while Laeli and her long-time ally Sophia navigate a country of prostitutes and assassins, war brewing around them. Though Laeli clings to a well-crafted denial of her past, she and her conspirators must conquer their secrets before Anderton’s trap ensnares them all.

    What will a thief do when her sister is stolen?

    Julie Elise Landry has created an expansive world through which her characters must travel, facing danger and madness along the way. Somehow the thief Laeli Tavens finds herself at the center of a blooming civil war while on a desperate quest to rescue her sister from the sadist using her as bait. She and her companions experience trauma and horrors beyond belief - if you were looking for a light-hearted novel to help you sleep tonight, this is not it. If, on the other hand, you crave the desperate nail-biting, gut-wrenching feeling of "oh god, what's going to happen next?" then this book is for you.
