This was a fun beginning to a great new trilogy. A brother and sister’s relationship that is all fun and games on the outside, but on the inside is so real in it’s rocky ships and stormy seas. There is tension and emotion from love and hate, and confusion from not-quite-love mixed with not-quite-hate. The characters are brilliant and complex, the magic is deep, and the story twists and turns like the city it sits on. I’m super excited for the next turn of the series!

About The Book

Two siblings.
Outcasts for life.... together.
What could possibly go wrong?

Vocho and Kacha are champion duelists: a brother and sister known for the finest swordplay in the city of Reyes. Or at least they used to be-until they were thrown out of the Duelist's Guild.
As a last resort, they turn reluctant highwaymen. But when they pick the wrong carriage to rob, their simple plans to win back fame and fortune go south fast.
After barely besting three armed men and a powerful magician, Vocho and Kacha make off with an immense locked chest. But the contents will bring them much more than they've bargained for when they find themselves embroiled in a dangerous plot to return an angry king to power....
Swords and Scoundrels is the first book in The Duelist's Trilogy -- a tale of death, magic, and family loyalty.
