In the fog-shrouded streets of Rodaas, a game is played. From the mansions of the Garden to the slums of the Shallows, favors and secrets, lives and deaths are bartered and bet upon in a contest that has lasted for centuries.
Of the many players, none surpass the legendary society of thieves, spies and rumormongers known as the Grey.
To uncover the secrets of her own past, the bread girl known as Duchess will dare a daunting initiation and in doing so discover that, in Rodaas, the most dangerous game is one even the Grey does not play…
“The story pulls in the reader from the first sentence and doesn’t let go…a fresh, compelling twist on fantasy.”
“The writing is excellent…the story hits the turbo button and becomes a terrific page turner….These two authors have a sure touch for creating the emotional resonance that I look for in a book.”
Pauline’s Fantasy Reviews
“The ending kept me up until 2 AM so I could finish it…I had an early day next day, but damn it, I had to know what the whole thing was about!”
