Cate Glass’s Chimera novels presents a fantasy adventure where sorcery is forbidden and its practitioners are sentenced to death.
In Cantagna, the Shadow Lord brought forth a revolution, bestowing upon the people the privileges of the wealthy. But when a faction plots to incite civil war and overthrow the revolutionary ruler, it falls to the Shadow Lord’s former courtesan, Romy, and a ragtag crew of misfits to save the realm with the very thing that could condemn them all: magic.
“An Illusion of Thieves drew me in with its clever, resourceful heroine and delightful supporting cast, and kept me turning pages with forbidden magic, intrigue, and a smart and daring magical caper. I can’t wait for more!”—Melissa Caruso, author of The Tethered Mage
