The Thief's Tale

ByJoel Manners

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Winner of the 2019 IRDA prize for fantasy. Finalist for the 2020 Indie Book Awards prize for fantasy. When an audacious burglary goes spectacularly right, Wyn expects her young life to change for the better. Glorious infamy and the respect and adulation of her underworld brethren will, at least, buy her a few drinks, and just might convince other thieving vermin to keep their knives to themselves for a while. But when her new-found reputation attracts the worst kind of attention, she is forced to take on an impossible heist by a vicious killer named Quinn, a man she has feared and hated since she was an orphan fighting for food on the streets. The job takes Wyn across the sprawling city of Kuray, where the high born hold galas in their opulent mansions while crews spread murder in the tangled streets, where coin and quill are as much weapon and armor as a knight’s sword and steel, and where arcane Devices, magical instruments as powerful as they are unobtainable, are the ultimate loot. When Wyn discovers that the job is more sinister than she had feared, she begins to suspect that not even success will keep her from Quinn’s slaughterhouse. Faced with the destruction of everything that holds meaning to her, Wyn vows to pull the greatest job of all—to beat Quinn at his own brutal game.
