Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Very tense and twisty [with] a world that feels broad and deep and believable... seriously compelling. Locus
Political intrigue, deceit, and forbidden talents...with a Mission Impossible vibe. Booklist
Intrigue and skullduggery abound in this great new read, full of misfits, betrayal, forbidden sorcery, and unexpected friendships. Curtis Craddock
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
"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
