Summary
"In a world where the suns almost never set, a woman gains entry to a school of infamous assassins, seeking vengeance against the powers that destroyed her family. Daughter of an executed traitor, Mia Corvere is barely able to escape her father's failed rebellion with her life. Alone and friendless, she wanders a city built from the bones of a dead god, hunted by the Senate and its thugs. But her gift for speaking with the shadows leads her to the hearth of a retired killer, and a future she never imagined. Now, Mia is apprenticed to the deadliest flock of assassins in the entire Republic-the Red Church. Deadly trials await her within the Church's halls: blades and poisons, treachery and death. If she survives to initiation, she'll be inducted among the chosen of the Lady of Blessed Murder, and be one step closer to the only thing she desires. Revenge."--

Summary
After the Itreyan Republic executes her father, Mia Corvere, the sole survivor of her once-prominent family, decides to seek vengeance by becoming an assassin for the powerful Red Church. The training process is difficult and dangerous, but Mia's ability to speak to the shadows proves to be an asset as she battles her way to the top of a ruthless pecking order. This fast-paced series opener by the author of the Lotus Wars trilogy introduces a determined young heroine and an intricately wrought setting that draws its inspiration from the politics and culture of Renaissance Italy. -- Description by Gillian Speace
