Important Announcement!

We are currently looking into creating another group of readers specifically for ARC copies of upcoming books. Those in the group will be given books and expected to post a review before/on their scheduled release dates. If you're interested in ARC copies, you must be a regular reviewer of the monthly offerings, so we know you have the time to read/review the books on a tighter schedule. This group would operate as a launch group for these pre-release books. 

If you're interested or have questions, please reach out to Kat Avila at kjavila@ourwriteside.com.

Synopsis:

 

"They killed my parents. They took my name. They imprisoned me in darkness. I would not be broken."

Viola, a child sold to pay her father's debts, has lost everything: her mother, her home, and her identity. Thrown into a life among criminals, she has no time for grief as she endures the brutal training of an apprentice thief. The Night Guild molds an innocent waif into a cunning, agile outlaw skilled in the thieves' trade. She has only one choice: steal enough to pay her debts. 

The cutthroat streets of Praamis will test her mettle, and she must learn to dodge the City Guards or swing from a hangman's rope. But a more dangerous foe lurks within the guild walls. A sadistic rival apprentice, threatened by her strength, is out for blood. 

What hope does one girl have in a world of ruthless men?

Synopsis:

Firion is a young merchant descended from generations of merchants. His first big break comes along when he sets out to trade with the wealthy Dwarven kingdom of Oria. He has always dreamed of visiting this grand kingdom, having heard his father describe it in detail a hundred times while he was younger. But when Firion arrives in Oria, he is jarred by the details present that contradict with the image etched into his mind. Something dark and sinister seems to be afoot in Oria, but Firion knows he is no hero. He is just a simple merchant, and what can an ordinary person do in the face of danger and deception?
