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....

Ambitious but not without flaws.
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.
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.
No, this was my first but surely not my last!
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.
