The third novel in the Sianim series from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Mercy Thompson series and the Alpha and Omega novels...

When Rialla was young, slave traders from Darran ambushed her clan, killing all the men and enslaving the women and children. For years, Rialla lived in bondage, serving her master while waiting for a chance to escape. When that chance came, she made the best of it—and fled to the mercenary nation of Sianim…

Now she can strike back at her former masters. A lord in Darran seeks to outlaw slavery—but there are plots to kill him before he can. Rialla is chosen by the spymaster of Sianim to prevent the murder—and is plunged into a world of deadly magic, where gods walk in human form. Where her most trusted companions are not what they claim. And where Rialla could be enslaved again…
Patricia Briggs is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Mercy Thompson urban fantasy series and the Alpha and Omega novels.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Weekend Read A really great fantasy read that goes in it's own direction. I'd read this before I'd read much of the new fantasy stuff these days. A quick weekend read. #plumreview

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Steal the Dragon Intrigue, magic, and a fight against dominating power -- this book will keep you reading. Briggs creates a mixture of wonderful characters that you will love or hate, but always appreciate. Both heroes and villains have strengths and compelling weaknesses that allow you to believe them despite whatever unusual capabilities they may have. This is a good fantasy to read if you don't want to commit yourself to a lengthy, multiple-part story. I am looking forward to more titles from this author.
