Mia Corvere was barely able to escape her father’s failed rebellion with her life. Now, she hides alone in a city built from the bones of a dead god. Hunted by her father’s friends and foes alike, Mia becomes apprentice to the deadliest group of assassins in the entire Republic—the Red Church. If she bests her fellow students in contests of steel, poison and the subtle arts, she’ll be inducted among the Blades of the Lady of Blessed Murder, and one step closer to the vengeance she desires. But a killer is loose within the Church’s halls, and the bloody secrets of Mia’s past return to haunt her.

When a bestselling debut novel from mysterious author J.Colby becomes the literary event of the year, Emiline reads it reluctantly—her stalled literary career not making her a fan of other’s accomplishments. Yet, the story of Emerson and Jackson, two childhood best friends who fall in love and dream of a better life entrances Emiline. That’s because the novel is based on her own childhood, which means that “J. Colby” must be Jase—the best friend and first love she hasn’t seen in over a decade. To put her mind at ease, Emiline must find and confront her former friend.
