The Book of Thieves and the Joker's Game by Summer Friesen
Inheriting a book from his father was not at all the responsibility Abell expected it to be. After his father's tragic death, Abell's suspicions grow as he learns about a new world of magic and danger. A world where magic means everything; from determining your wealth, political power, social status, and even friends from enemies. As power and corruption go hand-in-hand, Abell quickly learns that nothing in either worlds is as they seem and faces the decision of finishing his father's legacy, or not.
