An honorable prince. A jaded assassin. Can they work together to catch a pirate?Among the querulous island kingdoms of Wefrivain, the only unifying power is religion-a wyvern cult, ruled by an eccentric High Priestess. The wyverns are under attack by a gang of pirates, known as the Guild of the Cowry Catchers. The pirates are beginning to worry the Priestess, Morchella.She thinks she's found an answer in the person of Gerard, the new captain of her Temple Police. However, upon his promotion, Gerard strikes up a quarrel with Silveo, the Admiral of Morchella's Temple ships. Silveo has a reputation for cruelty, cunning, and a biting wit. He's a foxling-a minority species-and rumors say that he was once an assassin, who clawed his way to power from a childhood of poverty and abuse. He cultivates serial affairs with persons ranging from his own lieutenants to dock prostitutes. On the surface, Silveo could not be more different from Gerard-a member of the dominant species class, born to money and power, adhering to strict codes of honor, and devoted to his wife.In spite of their differences, Morchella orders them to work together. She believes that they can catch the pirates. Their survival may depend upon it.Embers is the first book in the The Guild of the Cowry Catchers series. Paper books in this series are not illustrated.

Warning: This is not an mm romance, this is not even a bromance. Just two guys forced to work together.

Never mind the overwhelming amount of species, in the end they all sound like drones. At 45% I feel like nothing is happening. The story is too slow with too many unnecessary info dumps. ( )

An archipelago kingdom, the inhabitants are chimeras with humanoid (elven by the illustrations ?) upper bodies and animal-like lower legs and feet. The chimeras of predator species (and foremost among them the griffin chimeras) have established a ruthless social order that they dominate, though they are in turn subservient to a religion that worships wyverns as local gods. In a bid to escape his backwater birthplace with the woman he loves but was forbidden to marry, the protagonist entered the service of the priesthood some years ago. His life takes a turn as he is promoted to chief of police, only to find that most of his predecessors seemed to have trouble surviving even a year after they took on the job. And the very dangerous High Priestess Morchella may have taken a bit too much of a shine for him...

Good, but despite the very nice watercolor illustrations or other LT users' tags probably not a children's or very young teens' book.
One of the major characters has gone through very dark times. The reminiscing isn't graphic but some topics are raised that not everyone might want to see in their younger children's reading. ( )
