A web of secrets and hidden identities ensnare two sisters and their family, in this delightful historical fantasy sequel to The Sisters Mederos
After the shocking events of last summer, the high society of Port Saint Frey has plenty to gossip about. Who was the Gentleman Bandit? Why hasn't he been captured? And what really happened that night when the Guildmaster disappeared? When the Guild hires Abel Fresnel, a detective with special powers of his own, to find the answers, Tesara and Yvienne Mederos have to avoid his probing questions and keep mum about their role in the events of that dark night. Everything's more or less under control until a dead man turns up in the dumbwaiter...

Praise for The Sisters Mederos
“Patrice Sarath gives us a colorful Dickensian fantasy that leads the reader on an unpredictable path of murder, intrigue, and mystery, served up with her customary lively characterizations and pitch-perfect dialogue. It’s a tale of magic lost and recovered, fortunes made and squandered, and broken lives healed, all of it engineered by Yvienne and Tesara, two resourceful and delightful protagonists, in the company of some charming and often dangerous sidekicks.”
– Louisa Morgan, author of A Secret History of Witches
“Patrice Sarath takes readers on a fine, twisty adventure with two determined young women who abandon their dutiful, well mannered upbringing for drawing room gambling, dark alleys, and magic.”
– Carol Berg, author of The Sanctuary Duet and the Collegia Magica Series
“Delightful and compulsively readable account of the escapades of two strong willed sisters determined to restore their rightful place though disreputable means.”
– Tina Connolly, Nebula-nominated author of Ironskin
“I loved the determination of the Sisters Mederos! Despite myriad setbacks, they return to the city that crushed their family a decade before, take on the corrupt guild, and bring their enemies to justice. The first chapter in a thrilling new series!”
– J Kathleen Cheney, author of The Golden City series and Nebula Award finalist
“The Sisters Mederos is a deliciously fun, immersive fantasy about magic, complicated family loyalties, guilt and adventure, jam-packed with wonderful women characters. A delight!”
– Stephanie Burgis, author of Masks and Shadows and Snowspelled
“The novel moves at a quick pace, and, coupled with the exciting adventures of the two daredevil sisters, the reader can’t help but want to read on.”
– British Fantasy Society
“The author is a very good writer and the book was well written.”
– The Misadventures of a Reader
“There was much to be enjoyed in this book. The girls’ adventures and boldness in taking things into their own hands was quite fun to read about and I’d happily read more about the two of them.”
– Way Too Fantasy
“The plot and characterization were competent and well handled, and the tension was maintained well.”
– The Review Curmudgeon
“Yvienne and Tesara’s capers are so zany and fun, and the added element of thumbing their noses at the Guild makes them even sweeter. If you’re looking for a fantasy of manners with lots of madcap action, then The Sisters Mederos is a good place to begin!”
