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 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 person who matters most: her son.

I recently brought this on sale and am very glad I did. The story is fast paced, vivid and higly imaginative, worded so well it made visualizating the characters, environment and concepts easy. The narrators voices were crisp, clear and set at a lively pace.

Saiya Buchanan is a wraith, able to detach her shadow from her body and send it off to do her bidding. But, unlike most of her kin, Saiya doesn't deal in death. Instead, she trades secrets - and in the goblin besieged city of Stirling in Scotland, they're a highly prized commodity. It might just be, however, that the goblins have been hiding the greatest secret of them all. When Gabriel de Florinville, a Dark Elf, is sent as royal envoy into Stirling and takes her prisoner, Saiya is not only going to uncover the sinister truth.

A wonderfully written story, great creatures & characters, a cracking pace and placed in the city of Sterling,
The narrator was absolutely amazing!
She brought the numerous characters to life and is possibly the best female narrator I have ever heard.
I would definitely listen to this combination of writer and reader again.
