Stone of Inheritance by Melissa McShane

Company of Strangers book 2. Spoilers for book 1 ahead

The company, after some routine jobs, is taking a step toward Alaric's quest: buying a magical knife at an auction. Except that someone outbids them, and extorts a job from them: they will go to her ancestral home and retrieve something for her, that will let her press her claim to a title with the king.

It gets more complicated from there. Intrigue between nobles, an attacker, Perrin's drinking, attempts to flirt with Sienne, the religion of the world, monsters that are legendary, invisibility, and more.
