When Staever and his gang of lobster thieves—second-in-command Wrest, lookout and strategist Emaria, demolitions expert Arcite, and martial artist Eventhe—hijack a land vessel hauling precious glass to the wealthy center of The Eye, they expect to once again fence the loot to the crooked Gattick and call it a job well done. What they don’t expect is to discover an ancient key that could hold the power to save their dying seaside city.
Staever knows that the lobsters of The Eye must make a pilgrimage back to the homeland they lost centuries ago; he also knows, however, that when the slums know him as an outlaw and his only allies are his mother and an out-of-favor governor, his chances of saving his people are slim at best. But if there’s one thing Staever and his gang can do, it’s think on their feet—and although he’s in the crosshairs of a conniving politician and his brutal enforcer, this thief’s day may be about to dawn . . .
Sweeping from a high desert, across a barren wasteland spanned by graceful bridges, and into the swamps and forests of a land known only to legend, The Glass Thief is a tale of treason, swashbuckling adventure, despicable villains, the power of history, romance, action, humor, and fear. By the end, a continent—and a world—will be forever changed.
