Waiting on Wednesday – A Conjuring of Assassins by Cate Glass
If you missed my review of An llusiIon of Thieves, go check it out. I really enjoyed it (a girl born to poverty, sold to be raised as a courtesan, sold to a powerful lord, then her worlds collide … was just an amazingly fun read).
The first book ended with a great set up for following books, so I’m really looking forward to diving in!A Conjuring of Assassins by Cate Glass

Published by Tor Books on February 4, 2020
Romy and her three partners in crime — a sword master, a silversmith, and her thieving brother — have embraced their roles as the Shadow Lord’s agents, using their forbidden magic to accomplish tasks his other spies cannot.
Now, they’ve been tasked with locating a list of powerful men and women pledged to assassinate the tyrant Protector of Mercediare, Cantagna’s most dangerous enemy. Then, they must destroy the list before it falls into the Protector’s hands, where it could plunge the entire Costa Drago into a rampage of murderous vengeance.
But when Placidio and Romy infiltrate the ambassador’s household by impersonating a cloth merchant and an aspiring diviner, they discover that the ambassador’s oddities and the prisoner’s identity signal dangers far more explosive than exposing the Assassins List.
