Freebie Friday: Mask of Shadows
Today’s giveaway will be an ARC of Mask of Shadows — check it out on Goodreads here. It features a gender fluid main character who is trying to become a royal assassin.
Sallot Leon is a thief, and a good one at that. But gender fluid Sal wants nothing more than to escape the drudgery of life as a highway robber and get closer to the upper-class and the nobles who destroyed their home.
When Sal Leon steals a poster announcing open auditions for the Left Hand, a powerful collection of the Queen’s personal assassins named for the rings she wears — Ruby, Emerald, Amethyst, and Opal — their world changes. They know it’s a chance for a new life.
Except the audition is a fight to the death filled with clever circus acrobats, lethal apothecaries, and vicious ex-soldiers. A childhood as a common criminal hardly prepared Sal for the trials. But Sal must survive to put their real reason for auditioning into play: revenge.
The winner will also receive a shadow-y notebook (pictured) in which you can write all your thoughts about the book or anything else. Feathers not included – I might need those at Halloween!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
