Our Queen of the Eastern Spires and Lady of Lightning requires a new Opal for her Left Hand

“I love every aspect of this amazing book Get! Read! Now!” 
—Tamora Pierce, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“An intriguing world and a fantastically compelling main character make for a can't-miss debut.” 
—Kiersten White, New York Times bestselling author of And I Darken and Now I Rise

Perfect for fantasy fans of Sarah J. Maas and Leigh Bardugo, the first book in this new duology features a compelling gender-fluid main character, impressive worldbuilding, and fast-paced action.

Sallot Leon is a thief, and a good one at that. But gender-fluid Sal wants nothing more than to escape the drudgery of life as a highway robber and get closer to the upper class—and the nobles who destroyed their home. 

When Sal steals a flyer for an audition to become a member of the Left Hand—the Queen’s personal assassins, named after the rings she wears—Sal jumps at the chance to infiltrate the court and get revenge. 

But the audition is a fight to the death filled with clever circus acrobats, lethal apothecaries, and vicious ex-soldiers. A childhood as a common criminal hardly prepared Sal for the trials. And as Sal succeeds in the competition and wins the heart of Elise, an intriguing scribe at court, they start to dream of a new life and a different future, but one that Sal can have only if they survive.
