Blurb for A Wolf in Thief's Clothing

Phrai joins a crew to pull off a dangerous heist. Little do her fellow thieves know that the end of their job is just the beginning of hers.


Book Review for A Wolf in Thief's Clothing

A Wolf in Thief’s Clothing starts off right in the middle of a heist, fully engaging the reader as the stakes are set. The main character Phrai is portrayed as nervous and counting down towards her goal alongside fellow thief Nuri. But Phrai’s goals might not be aligned with the rest of the thieves. As the heist begins to go horribly wrong, readers will be drawn back to the beginning of how it all started.

Action and mystery collide as the story is set into motion, driving the reader forward with the desire to know Phrai’s true intentions. Along the way, Lily Anne Crow drops enough worldbuilding to accent the story and immerse readers in the world of thieves and shadows. There is no doubt readers who enjoy heists will be captured by the first chapter. And with the way this novella ends, there is sure to be more high-stakes adventure in this world.
