She is known by many names, none of them her own. In truth, she is an unnamed slave, nothing more than a weapon in the hands of her owner in his attempts to provoke political mayhem. When she encounters a handsome young man while on an assignment, she thinks little of him—until he attempts to take what she has stolen. But in her line of work, failure is not an option.
Gillen is intrigued by the mysterious woman who thwarts his mission. But when his path crosses hers again, his intrigue turns to gratitude as the thief he comes to call Eudocia saves his life. The two form a bond of friendship and join forces to wrest control from a group of ruthless rulers. But as their camaraderie blossoms into something more, Gillen and Eudocia must fight for love even as they wage war for a better future.
This book captivated, intrigued and fascinated me from the beginning till the end. The story was filled with action, suspense to last a life time.
I was intrigued by the “girl” or “mouse” as she was called. She was surprising and she was the reason I kept reading together with the interesting plot. She fascinated me her strength and resolve. Eudocia as she was later called, was a force to reckon with. I greatly admired her courage and boldness even in the most dire of situations, she was strong and moved on despite the fear of death to save her city and the ones she loved.
I was happy she found love or love found her.
I read this book in a sitting. It was that wonderful.
I received a copy of this book and this is my honest opinion.
