This one was just as good as Thorn (maybe better). Another independent and headstrong young woman who charges forward no matter what. And with that cliffhanger ending, readers will be left anxiously waiting for the next book. While Thorn was a retelling of the Goose Girl, Theft of Sunlight expands upon that world and really delves into human trafficking in this world. Extremely well done!

With her club foot, Amraeya is safe: only whole children are taken. When the regular disappearance of children becomes personal, however, Rae must decide how far, and to whom, her loyalty extends. To reveal the truth behind the snatchings, she must reach those in positions of power, but that requires risking family secrets – and her own safety. The first half of a duology that will leave readers eager for the second installment.

Children have been disappearing from across Menaiya for longer than Amraeya ni Ansarim can remember. When her friend’s sister is snatched, Rae knows she can’t look away any longer—even if that means seeking answers from the royal court, where her country upbringing and clubfoot will only invite ridicule.

Yet the court holds its share of surprises. There she discovers an ally in the foreign princess, who recruits her as an attendant. Armed with the princess’s support, Rae seeks answers in the dark city streets, finding unexpected help in a rough-around-the-edges street thief with secrets of his own.

But treachery runs deep, and the more Rae uncovers, the more she endangers the kingdom itself.
