*rolls up sleeves* Alright, now we're cooking with gas!
I'm totally into the whole "we have to make a deal with the devil because they have awesome resources that nobody else seems to have access to" trope, and in this section we get a double-whammy of that because the Thieves are making deals both with Sonea and with the Guild. Oh, snap!
I appreciate that while Sonea may not have control over her powers yet, she's still quick about understanding a lot of the accidental magic she's done so far. She may not be able to reliably replicate it, but she's got an instinct for what she did the first time, and even understands what's happening when the Guild begins to search for her with their minds. I think they may have met their match.
If only the asshole she hit with a rock doesn't get his hands on her anytime soon.
