Thank you to everyone that supported me through this journey, if not for you I wouldn’t be here. Thank you to those who beta-read for me and helped turned this into a finished product. Special thanks to Jamie Wilson for creating my fantastic cover and encouraging me to keep going. Minion, you rock my socks off. Thank you for all the late night talks and crazy ideas, I don’t think I would have the courage to do this without you. Brandon, my dear and loving husband, thank you for the massive amount of coffee and technical support.
The rain pelted Cora's hood as she made her way from her client's house. Reading the woman's cards turned out not to be as simple as she hoped. The client wanted more answers than Cora could provide and caused her to be late heading home. She carefully navigated her way over the cobblestone roads and checked down alleyways before passing them. Eyeing every shadow caused by flickering torches, she looked for the glinting of metal armor and flashes of the black cloaks of the guards, knowing it would do her no good to be caught by one.
