Join Wayward Readers Society for a lively discussion of this month's book!

Mia Corvere barely escaped her father's failed rebellion with her life. Alone and friendless, she hid in a city built from the bones of a dead god, hunted by her father's former comrades. Then her gift for speaking with the shadows led her to a future she never imagined: an apprenticeship with the Red Church assassins. Treachery and trials await her within the Church's halls, and failure is death. But if she survives to initiation, Mia will be one step closer to the only thing she desires: revenge.
