Drothe has been a member of the Kin for years, rubbing elbows with thieves and murderers in the employ of a crime lord while smuggling relics on the side. But when an ancient book falls into his hands, Drothe finds himself in possession of a relic capable of bringing down emperors-a relic everyone in the underworld would kill to obtain.
I really enjoyed the book and all of the plot's twists and turns. Some of them were predictable but fit very well in the story, while others had me asking myself what the hell was going on. This is definitely worthy of any fantasy-fan's attention, especially if thieving or recon type stuff is interesting to you.
This book was amazing. The attention to detail by the author really sets the scene for the novel. The use of authentic 12th century slang was also a nice touch.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes fantasy novels. It has magic, swordplay, and a plot that wouldn't let me put the book down.
Upon reading the acknowledgments, though, I saw that this book took 10 years to write! I suppose it would be too much to ask for a sequel, but man was this book gold.
All in all, 10/10, and tell your friends about this amazing book!
