Praise for this book

"Patrice Sarath takes readers on a fine, twisty adventure with two determined young women who abandon their dutiful, well mannered upbringing for drawing room gambling, dark alleys, and magic." - Carol Berg

"A strong first novel, some very real horsemanship, and utterly convincing warcraft." - Toby Bishop

"I loved the determination of the Sisters Mederos! Despite myriad setbacks, they return to the city that crushed their family a decade before, take on the corrupt guild, and bring their enemies to justice. The first chapter in a thrilling new series!" - J Kathleen Cheney

"Delightful and compulsively readable account of the escapades of two strong willed sisters determined to restore their rightful place though disreputable means." - Tina Connolly

"Highly recommended." - Juliet E McKenna

"Patrice Sarath gives us a colorful Dickensian fantasy that leads the reader on an unpredictable path of murder, intrigue, and mystery, served up with her customary lively characterizations and pitch-perfect dialogue. It’s a tale of magic lost and recovered, fortunes made and squandered, and broken lives healed, all of it engineered by Yvienne and Tesara, two resourceful and delightful protagonists, in the company of some charming and often dangerous sidekicks." - Louisa Morgan

"An exciting and absorbing read." - Sharon Shinn
