A single dragon’s egg could win or topple an empire—but how do you steal a fable?
In the fabulous metropolis of Marketh, master thief Crow flits fearlessly from rooftop to rooftop. He has fame. He has fortune. All he needs is a wedding gift for his beloved. But in mid-heist, the unthinkable happens. He is captured by Baron Duzayan, a wizard with eyes on the emperor’s throne and a shocking lack of morals. The next thing he knows, Crow is packed off to steal an impossible treasure. Lacking confidence in Crow’s commitment to the job, Duzayan raises the stakes with a little kidnapping and poison.
As if that’s not enough, he’s paired up with Tanris, the very man who set the trap to catch Crow. Doomed to work together in spite of obvious bad blood, the pair embarks on a rollicking, snarky ride through a land of wizards, demons, and ghosts. Luckily, Crow is armed with a razor-sharp wit and the love of the gods. They’re going to need it…
