The Mary Sue has an exclusive 16 page preview of The Thief and the Sword. Click on over to if you want to read. It was tough finding a sequence that wasn’t spoiler heavy (Book 3 is going to be even tougher) and the main action sequence is a third of the book–way too long to excerpt. So throw on some Beatles and enjoy this nice little relaxing moment of Cleo attending the Winter Dance. Rest assured, things escalate pretty quickly afterward.
The Thief and the Sword is out next Tuesday–less than one week! Preorder info below.
