Tavera has been wandering aimlessly since an unknown traitor in the elite thieves guild known as the "Cup of Cream" betrayed her father Derk -- until she crosses paths with Tender, a loyal but naive servant to the Church, entrusted to rescue a kidnapped priestess from the violent cult of the Red Moon Rising.
I’ve been a fan of this series from the jump, but I have to say that my interest waned slightly with this one. Perhaps it’s because the only character who has carried over is Tavera, and although there are references to Derk and Old Gam, they do not factor into the plot. Tavera is an adult now, definitely jaded from her past, and still up to her thieving ways. Still, her kind heart shines through as she is compelled to help rescue the priestess and becomes involved with Tender and his brother Little.
This book takes the series in a new direction and opens up new plot possibilities, as Tavi is on her own now, and has uncovered a cult with dangerous powers. It seems that Tender will factor in to future novels as well, and perhaps a reunion with Derk is also in the cards at some point.
I still enjoy Tavera’s story and look forward to her next adventure. Her quick wit and good nature make for a very likeable heroine who you want to see succeed.
