Round two was quite the journey as we read through our novellas. It was a close race but only two made it through to the end. Let's do a quick recap on which books we read for Round 2!
And our SFINC 2023 Finalists are....
A Wolf in Thief's Clothing Book Blurb
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.
This novella is available for free on Lily Anne Crow's website
Book Blurb for Dragon Meat
Peri will do anything to keep her chronically ill father alive in a city that's starving to death. Using her now useless scholarly talents to research thievery, she’s become a highly successful food thief—small, ordinary—invisible. In Medeas, gripped in the iron fist of its mad governor, ravaged by dragons, hiding is a way of life.
Then her stealing triggers a riot, and a mysterious stranger steps in to save her. Frost has food and he’s willing to share his secret...but talking to him might be the most dangerous thing Peri’s ever done. How can she find the courage to leave her safe shadows and take a stand when her father’s life hangs in the balance?
