Available in MOBI and ePub

An orphan from the worst slum in Byzantia, Charity survived by never letting anyone get too close. Being taken in by a sect of priestess-scholars was the kind of luck that urchins like Charity only dream of, but an unexpected letter from the last living soul she'd ever called friend forces her to break their rules and risk losing the only home she'd ever known. Winding up back on the street would be bad enough, but when her night goes from bad to worse she'll have to think fast and act faster if she wants to survive the night.
