Publisher's Summary

Gender-fluid Sallot Leon is a thief, and a good one at that. But Sal wants nothing more than to escape the drudgery of life as a highway robber and to get closer to the nobles who destroyed home. So when auditions to become a member of The Left Hand - the Queen's personal assassins - are announced, Sal jumps at the chance to infiltrate the court and get revenge. But a childhood as a common criminal hardly prepared Sal for the audition: a fight to the death filled with clever circus acrobats, lethal apothecaries, and vicious ex-soldiers. But Sal succeeds in the competition, winning the heart of an intriguing scribe at court, and, together, they begin to dream of a new life and a different future - a future that they can have only if they both survive....

Take a wild ride!

Sal is one of the most enjoyable characters I've read in a long time. I loved going with her as she robbed, schemed, and killed her way through the book, eyes always on the prize. Sometimes it seems like teen fiction assassins are that in name only--not here. Death has consequences and revenge is a dish best served cold.

Ambitious but not without flaws.

Would you try another book from Linsey Miller and/or Deryn Edwards?

Yes. While I failed to connect with Mask of Shadows, there is an aspiring potential in Linsey Miller's writing that I feel will greatly improve with time. Deryn Edwards provided a fluid narration that added depth and value to the story.


What could Linsey Miller have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Sal deserved further exploration as a character. The backstory and world building need to be developed more to enhance the experience and establish a better connection with the reader.


Have you listened to any of Deryn Edwards’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, this was my first but surely not my last!


Did Mask of Shadows inspire you to do anything?

It did offer a nice amount of diversity through Sal. While I felt they should have been better developed, I found them to be insightful and thought provoking at times.
