Mask of Shadows

Mask of Shadows Review

Sallot Leon is a thief, and a good one at that. But gender fluid Sal wants nothing more than to escape the drudgery of life as a highway robber and get closer to the upper-class and the nobles who destroyed their home.

When Sal Leon steals a poster announcing open auditions for the Left Hand, a powerful collection of the Queen's personal assassins named for the rings she wears -- Ruby, Emerald, Amethyst, and Opal -- their world changes. They know it's a chance for a new life.

Except the audition is a fight to the death filled with clever circus acrobats, lethal apothecaries, and vicious ex-soldiers. A childhood as a common criminal hardly prepared Sal for the trials. But Sal must survive to put their real reason for auditioning into play: revenge.

  • Kaylin (The Re-Read Queen)

    DNF @ 34% As much as I hate leaving books unfinished, there’s nothing that makes me want to continue. Taking place in a generic fantasy world, Linsey Miller’s debut focuses on Sal, a thief who ent...
