A thief’s good deeds are never done.
Loch and her crew are determined to stop the ancients from returning to reclaim the world they once ruled, but a kidnapped friend throws their plans awry. When a desperate rescue turns into a shocking reunion, the ancients return and seize power. Determined to stop them, Loch and the crew look for a way to close the gate to the ancients’ world, but this time, they find themselves up against an enemy that has insinuated itself into the highest ranks of the Republic. Cruel, cunning, and connected, the ancients target the crew’s families and histories, threatening to tear friendships apart.
If that weren’t bad enough, Loch must deal with her treacherous assassin sister, her turncoat ancient friend, and a daemon who has sworn to hunt her to the ends of the earth. In order to save the Republic and pull off her largest con ever, Loch will need her friends…and maybe her enemies too.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Is this the end of the series? Was this a trilogy? Something about this book makes me think that, and I’m okay with it because almost everything feels resolved. Not just resolved, but resolved in a satisfying way. I love when that happens because it so rarely seems to, but by the end of this book, I was feeling pleased.
It’s hard to say much about this book and its characters that I haven’t already said. I love the ever present humour, especially Kail’s “your mother” jokes, those never get old. I also love how we get to meet Kail’s mom, and learn Icy’s back story, both of which were not quite what I expected.
This is the type of book, and series, that is all about enjoyment, and I certainly enjoyed it. This is a light-hearted humour-filled fantasy adventure, and it’s so easy to read. I’d suggest it to anyone looking for a giggle, although the books definitely need to be read in order.
