He needs time to figure out his next step and making sure this strange, sassy, stubborn human doesn’t poison him seems as good a diversion as any.

Two rival thieves
One fated heist gone wrong
And a curse that threatens to steal more than their freedom.

It was a simple job.

All I had to do was steal a ring from a mainland witch for the Thieves’ Guild that owned me. Easy enough, right?

The reward would bring me closer to earning my freedom. And stars above, I wanted off this floating luxury island.

But then he showed up, a cocky thief from a rival guild, and ruined all my plans.

Every. Single. One.

I lost the ring and my chance at freedom. But on the bright side, if we fail to retrieve three magical artifacts for the witch, I’ll be forever cursed to exist no more than fifteen feet from that unnaturally beautiful, arrogant elf. As an additional treat, we’ll be hunted down by our own guilds when this curse prevents us from returning. I honestly didn’t believe things could get worse. Until he offered a solution to our not-so-little problem—a bargain to save our lives.

I would laugh, except I didn’t realize there was anything left in my life to steal.

Bound by Ravens is a new adult fae fantasy romance, perfect for fans of witty banter, adventure, forced proximity, and otters.
