Thief of Promises
[Sequel to The Empire Thief]
Talyx thought his life would soon end when Jozar pushed him over the cliff. He didn't think he would survive. He had tried to fix his mistakes, but in the end, he still lost.
But Tal doesn't die. He finds himself in the gentle care of strange people, a kingdom outside of the empire's rule. He's nursed back to health, and befriends the charming princess.
However, Talyx constructs a lie, in order to get the king to help rid the empire of the werewolves. But in order to do that, Tal must make promises. He makes promises to the king, and to a band of thieves like himself. He makes promises he's not sure he can keep, but if it eliminates the beasts that threaten his home, Talyx will go to whatever lengths necessary.
Now, Talyx must find a way to rid the empire of Jozar and the werewolves, as well as a new enemy. It will test him in both mind and body.
But as a thief, an urchin of the streets, he has little to lose. And a thief like Talyx, that makes him more dangerous than a werewolf.
