Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
A future chieftain. A fugitive prince. A too-cunning bodyguard. And one grumpy gray tabby. ; Fie abides by one rule: look after your own. As the future chieftain of a shunned caste of mercy-killers, she relies on her wits and bone magic--drawn from the teeth of dead witches--to protect her band. The Crows take more abuse than coin, so when they're called to collect the royal dead, Fie hopes they'll find the payout of a lifetime. When Fie discovers that Crown Prince Jasimir and his crafty bodyguard, Tavin, have faked their deaths to escape the ruthless Queen Rhusana, she's ready to cut her losses--and perhaps their throats. But Jas offers a deal that she can't refuse: make sure he lives to see the throne, and he'll protect the Crows when he reigns. To outrun and outwit the queen, the trio forge an uneasy alliance that is soon tested by old secrets, shifting allegiances, and forbidden feelings. As Rhusana and her band of deadly trackers loom ever closer, the three fugitives must discover what they're each willing to sacrifice to save their own.
