The Thief Who Pulled On Trouble's Braids (Amra #1)
by Michael McClung
Amra Thetys lives by two simple rules—take care of business, and never let it get personal. Thieves don't last long in Lucernis otherwise. But when a fellow rogue and good friend is butchered on the street in a deal gone wrong, she turns her back on burglary and goes after something more precious than treasure: Revenge.
Book 1 in the Amra Thetys sword & sorcery fantasy series.
