Lucy Trenton's ability to sense majick is one of her most dangerous secrets. But only one.
A blackmailer knows the other.
Suddenly, Lucy is caught in a treasonous plot to destroy the crown, and she's trapped in the tentacles of a desperate, destructive majick. Her only hope is ship captain Marten Thorpe, who--by every account--cannot be trusted. With time running out, Lucy must find a way to win a dangerous game or lose everything she holds dear.
The world created by Francis is unusual and complex. She takes Lucy through the highs and lows of society and the reader goes right with her. I fell in love with the characters and their loyalty, or lack thereof, to each other. When in need, Lucy finds herself reliant on the help of some surprising people. You wouldn't think a cousin to the king might need help from odd parts of society, but when the stranger's blackmail efforts ruin her reputation and set her up to die on the Bramble, she has nowhere else to turn.
This story will surprise you with its shifts and turns, but it's entertaining through and through. I can't wait to read EVERYTHING else written by Diana Pharoah Francis.
One thing I didn't like was the excruciating pain and disfigurement the main character endured (over and over again) – it was over the top, and unbelievable that a person could survive ALL of that. It was almost painful to read . . .
Highly recommended reading for anyone who likes adventure/fantasy.

MY single biggest complaint is that there are a lot of plot holes that are not filled in by the second book in fact the sequel is a very different novel and that might suite you well but be fore warned.
I made a big mistake when buying this book.
I read this in 2 days and can't wait for the next book "The Black Ship"
The action keeps going at a steady rate
Francis is a good author and I'll watch for all her new books.
