Rani Trader was born a merchant, but now she is an apprentice in the prestigious Glasswrights' Guild. When Rani witnesses the murder of the Crown Prince, she's accused of being the killer. On the run and labeled a traitor, Rani must travel the city streets, masquerading through her kingdom's strict castes as she attempts to discover the actual assassin. Along the way, Rani meets true friends and false leaders. She discovers a secret brotherhood, and she must determine who is her greatest ally...and who is her most bitter enemy.
"Mind your caste," Rani is told. But what good will that do, if her caste gets her killed before she can expose the Prince's actual murderer?

story is mediocre-at-best and narrator is lifeless
I really struggled to finish this. the dark overtones are good sometimes, but the characters are pretty bland and the Mystery elements are contrived and over-complicated. a lot of the times when the character came to conclusions I found myself going, " well that's a leap in logic." Rani is a bit boring and kind of serves as a self insert. the whole novel reads like a slightly darker young adult novel, but without the charming characters and story that follows. it's made all the worse by the fact that the narrator is probably the most lifeless narrator that I've ever come across on here. there was a lot of potential but in the end this book falls flat.

Julia portrays this story to keep you enthralled. Mindy Klasky develops the characters as you go, making you love our apprentice and want to save her at every turn. I look forward to trying the next in this series. If you liked Maria Snyders Poison series, you'll love this.
