Summary: As a pickpocket, Digger expects to spend a night in jail every now and then. But she doesn't expect to find Lord Durrel Decath there as well--or to hear he's soon to be executed for killing his wife.
Durrel once saved Digger's life, and when she goes free, she decides to use her skills as a thief, forger, and spy to return the favor. But each new clue only opens up new mysteries. Durrel's late wife had an illegal business on the wrong side of the civil war raging just outside the city gates. Digger keeps finding forbidden magic in places it has no reason to be. And for a thief in a town full of liars, sometimes it doesn't pay to know the truth.
Review: No. Just no. I read the first book, Starcrossed, and loved it, but this one was a HUGE disappointment. I forced myself through ninety-five pages before I couldn't take it anymore and returned it to the library. You should read Starcrossed, but skip the sequel.
