Kristine Kathryn Rusch as Kris DeLake
Abandoned by everyone, Skye strikes a bargain with the Assassins Guild at the tender age of 14 to work off her education. But in the years that follow, her training proves she must escape an assassin’s life. After failing one final test, she learns her fate—a fate no one can see coming.
This story marks the origin of Skye, the heroine of A Spy to Die For, which Kristine Kathryn Rusch wrote under the pen name Kris DeLake.
“‘Skylight’ takes one of the less likely aspects of fantasy—the Assassins Guild—and not only does a science fiction take on it, but also makes it seem sensible. …Kristine Kathryn Rusch makes the entire concept work with a story about morality and hard choices.”
