Growing up on Forge's streets has taught Kyra how to stretch a coin. And when that's not enough, her uncanny ability to scale walls and bypass guards helps her take what she needs. But when the leader of the Assassins Guild offers Kyra a lucrative job, she hesitates. She knows how to get by on her own, and she's not sure she wants to play by his rules. But he is persistent - and darkly attractive - and Kyra can't quite resist his pull. Tristam of Brancel is a young Palace knight on a mission. After his best friend is brutally murdered by the Demon Riders, a clan of vicious warriors who ride bloodthirsty wildcats, Tristam vows to take them down. But as his investigation deepens, he finds his efforts thwarted by a talented thief, one who sneaks past Palace defenses with uncanny ease.
When a fateful raid throws Kyra and Tristam together, the two enemies realize that their best chance at survival - and vengeance - might be to join forces. And as their loyalties are tested to the breaking point, they learn a startling secret about Kyra's past that threatens to reshape both their lives.

A strong opening, and a very trope-filled finish
Good book, not great
This book was pretty good, but not a favorite. It kept my attention and moved at a good pace. I liked that the main character was a reasonably strong female. There were three male characters in her life, but only a hint at romance. I wasn't crazy about the large wildcats in the story - that seemed a bit strange. I wouldn't look for the next book in the series because in the end I didn't care enough about the characters or their relationships. I don't regret listening to this book, but I wouldn't seek out another.
