Web of eyes

When the young king's soul is stolen by a cultist desperate to resurrect the Buried Goddess, exiled knight Torsten Unger makes it his sworn duty to get it back. He has one chance to restore his honor. But he can't do it alone. He'll need a thief.

Whitney Fierstown planned the perfect heist, one that would have made him a legend among thieves, until he got caught. Now, a knight with a questionable reputation is offering a deal: rot and die in a dank cell or join him on a dangerous expedition to put his skills to good use and earn his freedom.

Whitney and Torsten must put aside their differences and work together to battle unholy cults, demons, rebels, and worse to become the heroes their war-torn kingdom never expected...if they don't kill each other first.

Sample text:

WHITNEY’S MOTHER once told him, “The only thing worse than stealing is stealing from a dying man.” Rumor was the King of Glass was, indeed, dying, though Queen Oleander would have you hanged if you were caught saying it aloud.

The masquerade was in mere hours, and Whitney had to be in the castle when it started. It was intended to celebrate King Liam’s birthday, though most figured it would be a final send off to the King who’d done more to shape the Glass since Remy the Revealer.

Alas, everyone knew The Glass Kingdom stood on the precipice of a new ruler, and even at mid-day the fog laid like a thick blanket over the streets of Yarrington and rain fell in heavy sheets as if the skies themselves were in mourning.

Good conditions for a thief... usually.

While Liam the Conqueror was bedridden, his guards were very much alive, an attribute they used to great effect in chasing Whitney through the quaint, winding streets. Old Yarrington sat on the ridge just outside of the castle walls, looking down upon the rest of the city. It was where the King’s stables lay, and the high nobles of the Glass Kingdom lived in extravagant mansions festooned with stained glass.

Whitney tore around a corner onto yet another unmarked pathway. Stabled horses roared, startled by the sound of clanking iron as the guards passed. If that wasn’t enough, thunder cracked, sending them into a frenzy.

Whitney thrived in chaos. This had been his passion since the day he’d left the farm—the thrill of being chased by guards armed to the eyeballs after snatching some rare treasure. But even as he dodged an especially deep puddle in the cobblestone path, he found himself going through the motions.
