A Game of Masks (Talons and Tethers #2) by Eliza Eveland – Free eBooks Download
An elvish assassin desperate for atonement.
A woman in search of purpose.
A battle-ravaged city engaged in a deadly shadow war.
Mercia Trevisa has always been happy to fade into the background. She’s a helper, not a fighter. Ever since the Crows have settled in Brucia, Mercia has struggled to find her place in Eris’s new court. Worse, a deadly encounter during the siege haunts her nightmares and drives her to seek dangerous distractions, if only to make it through the night.
When an assassin nearly claims the queen’s life, however, Mercia volunteers to help the Crows’ spymaster, Aryn Velanna, with a plot to trap the assassin once and for all. Under his tutelage, Mercia has ninety days to become a convincing double for Eris. One misstep and Mercia could thrust Brucia into another deadly war.
Aryn’s harsh training means he will accept nothing less than perfection, and Mercia would rather swallow hot coals than spend a minute alone with him. But a temper isn’t the only thing that Aryn sparks in Mercia. No man in Brucia is more deadly, or more perilous to grow attached to than the elven spymaster. As the undeniable attraction—and friction—grows between them, Mercia finds herself a target in a deadly shadow between two groups of foreign assassins.
Mercia and Aryn must find some common ground, or Brucia’s days as a free city are numbered.
