Thief of Hope

Sydney, a street urchin and pickpocket in the town of Last Hope, has managed to evade the oppressive Guild for years, but there is no escaping fate when she’s sentenced to death for associating with the resistance.

After she’s rescued by a wizard, Sydney is forced to accept that magic-long outlawed throughout the Kingdom of Thanumor-still exists, and the Tuatha, a powerful faery folk, are much more than ancient myth and legend. When the wizard offers a chance to fight the Guild and bring Willem, bastard prince and champion of the Tuatha, to the throne, Sydney embraces the cause as a way to find her own redemption.

But Sydney’s fear of the Guild, distrust of authority, and surprising connection to the Tuatha threaten Willem’s success. Can she untangle the strange threads that entwine her life not only to the fate of the kingdom, but also to Willem himself?

  1. HOOKED!!! lol Hi Cindy, we’ve been networking with you for a while now so I’m sure you know that we recently turned our blog over dedicating our posts to our networking friends. Using the next few months to get caught up with our backlog of e-book reads. However, I will be picking this book up for Inion for a Christmas gift & we will around the new year read & review! The book looks phenomenal, Cindy!! And the awards….you should be so proud. What an accomplishment! Can’t wait to dig into the THE THIEF OF HOPE!
