Goodreads Summary:

Sallot Leon is a thief, and a good one at that. But gender fluid Sal wants nothing more than to escape the drudgery of life as a highway robber and get closer to the upper-class and the nobles who destroyed their home.

When Sal Leon steals a poster announcing open auditions for the Left Hand, a powerful collection of the Queen's personal assassins named for the rings she wears -- Ruby, Emerald, Amethyst, and Opal -- their world changes. They know it's a chance for a new life.

Except the audition is a fight to the death filled with clever circus acrobats, lethal apothecaries, and vicious ex-soldiers. A childhood as a common criminal hardly prepared Sal for the trials. But Sal must survive to put their real reason for auditioning into play: revenge.

Sneak Peek:

"'Is this me?'  I twisted in the darkness. My sister stared back at me. Blood clung to the edges of Shae's face. The braids I'd twisted around her crown were matted with blood and dirt."   ebook location 900

Initial Thoughts

I agreed to read this book strictly because the cover was so interesting. And I was also intrigued to read a book that featured a transgender main character.  In many ways the book is similar to The Hunger Games and Throne of Glass... but it doesn't quite draw me in like those do... maybe I'll have something more to say once I reach the end.
