The Mask of Mirrors is a book that seemed like it had my name written all over it: a female con artist worming her way into a wealthy noble family, a magical sickness plaguing the city, and more politics than you can shake a stick at.

The Never King is the newest novel from Mark Charan Newton, who is writing under the pseudonym James Abbott. I hadn't read any of Newton's books before diving into this one, but was intrigued nonetheless.
