AN HONORABLE PRINCE. A JADED ASSASSIN. CAN THEY WORK TOGETHER TO CATCH A PIRATE?**ILLUSTRATED VERSION**Among the querulous island kingdoms of Wefrivain, the only unifying power is religion-a wyvern cult, ruled by an eccentric High Priestess. The wyverns are under attack by a gang of pirates, known as the Guild of the Cowry Catchers. The pirates are beginning to worry Priestess Morchella.She thinks she's found an answer in the person of Gerard Holovar, the new captain of her Temple Police. However, upon his promotion, Gerard strikes up a quarrel with Silveo, the Admiral of Morchella's Temple ships. Silveo has a reputation for cruelty, cunning, and a biting wit. He's a foxling-a minority species-and rumors say that he was once an assassin, who clawed his way to power from a childhood of poverty and abuse. He cultivates serial affairs with persons ranging from his own lieutenants to dock prostitutes. On the surface, Silveo could not be more different from Gerard-a member of the dominant species class, born to money and power, adhering to strict codes of honor, and devoted to his wife.In spite of their differences, Morchella orders them to work together. She believes that they can catch the pirates. Their survival may depend upon it.Embers if the first book in the 5-part Cowry Catchers series.
