A Conjuring of Assassins is Cate Glass's second adventure with the Chimera team, a ragtag crew who use their forbidden magic for the good of the kingdom.

Romy and her three partners in crime--a sword master, a silversmith, and her thieving brother--have embraced their roles as the Shadow Lord's agents, using their forbidden magic to accomplish tasks his other spies cannot.

Now, the Shadow Lord needs them to infiltrate the home of the Mercediaran Ambassador and prevent him from obtaining information that would lead to all-out war with Cantagna's most dangerous enemy.

To succeed, they will have to resurrect long-buried secrets, partner with old enemies, and once again rely on the very magics that could get them sentenced to death.

Review quote

Praise for An Illusion of Thieves:

An Illusion of Thieves drew me in with its clever, resourceful heroine and delightful supporting cast, and kept me turning pages with forbidden magic, intrigue, and a smart and daring magical caper. I can't wait for more!" --Melissa Caruso, author of The Tethered Mage

A treat of a story that starts off with a bang, and builds to a superb finish. Characters, setting, tension, Glass delivers that rare read that delivers on all counts. --Janny Wurts

Intrigue and skullduggery abound in this great new read, full of misfits, betrayal, forbidden sorcery, and unexpected friendships. --Curtis Craddock

Political intrigue, deceit, and forbidden talents...with a Mission Impossible vibe. --Booklist

Very tense and twisty [with] a world that feels broad and deep and believable... seriously compelling. --Locus
