Publisher's Summary

As a professional thief, Esme Bellerose's daylong job interview was going well: She'd come through most of it with only a black eye, bloody lip, broken wrist, a few cracked ribs, and talon marks from a ruby-throated dragon - but at least she wasn't missing any pieces. And if she could only survive until the five o'clock hour, she'd land the job that was every mystic thief's dream: employment at SPL Inc.

But the head of SPL, Elric Ostergaard, has other plans, and he's put one additional task on Esme's job application, which must be completed before he'll hire her. Namely, Elric wants the famed Faberge egg, created for the last tsarina, but stolen away by Russian mystic Grigori Rasputin. The magically infused egg has life-saving properties, and it's worth a king's ransom.

For Esme, accepting the task is easy; finding the egg after Grigori has been brutally murdered while also being forced to mentor a bullheaded mystic detective in the middle of a family squabble is the trickier part. And things just seem to get more complicated from there. But Esme has little choice. Either she brings Elric the egg, or she'll end up as dragon kibble.

One of the best

I’ve read everything from Throne of Glass to Jacky Leon to Emperor’s Edge. Read this if you’ve loved those. A strong female lead. Adventure, mystery, suspense, action, some romance…all the right spices for the perfect mix. Buy it. You won’t regret it.

Not For Me

I couldn't get into this book. The characters and story didn't appeal to me.

Fantastic as usual!

From setting up the story til the very end, there has been so much drama and intrigue! Different from what Victoria Laurie normally writes but absolutely fantastic! I’m anxious for the next book that probably hasn’t even been written yet!

different from what I am used to for her

this series is nothing like her other 2 series. it is alot of world building and very easy to get lost. some of it is even boring. hopefully the next book will be more enjoyable.

5 stars across the board

Another great Victoria Laurie book! As always, easy to listen to, with an interesting story that flows nicely. Characters are likeable and I can't wait to see what they get up to next. The narrator was so easy to listen to and really portrayed the characters well.
