Description

The companion novel to Assassin's Heart-an action-packed fantasy that Printz Award winner Laura Ruby said "will keep you turning the pages all night long"- Thief's Cunning picks up eighteen years later and follows Allegra Saldana as she uncovers the secrets about the line of killers she descends from. With her past stolen, she's taking the future into her own hands.

All her life, Allegra has had to live in secret. She is the niece of the infamous assassin Lea Saldana - but since the Saldanas have gone from the strongest clipper Family to the most hunted, Allegra and her clan must keep their identities hidden. Now they're constantly watching their backs for an attack from the Da Vias, a rival Family whose thirst for retaliation has been almost two decades in the making.

But what really happened the night Lea made the Da Vias pay for murdering her family? Allegra wants to know - just like she wants to know her parents' identity, which is another secret Lea and Uncle Les are keeping from her. When Allegra finally learns the truth, her world crumbles.

Feeling betrayed by the people she trusted most, Allegra turns to Nev, an intoxicating Traveler boy who makes her feel alive in ways she's only dreamed of. But Nev has secrets too, and when Allegra is kidnapped by his group and taken to their desert home, she soon learns their pasts are tangled in ways she couldn't have guessed. And if she can't escape back to Yvain soon, her life - and her family's lives - could be forever changed.
