Eli Monpress is talented. He's charming. And he's a thief.
But not just any thief. He’s the greatest thief of the age - and he’s also a wizard. And with the help of his partners - a swordsman with the most powerful magic sword in the world but no magical ability of his own, and a demonseed who can step through shadows and punch through walls - he’s going to put his plan into effect.
The first step is to increase the size of the bounty on his head, so he’ll need to steal some big things. But he’ll start small. He’ll just steal something that no one will miss - at least for a while.
Something like a king.
"After a slow start, debut author Aaron pulls the action together and turns in a romp of a lighthearted fantasy starring an absolutely darling rogue." (

An Original Tale of an almost Warcraft lore
Story was ok, but the narration really wasn't good
No, the only thing that kept me going with this book was wanting to find out how it ended.
I've not listened to anything like this for a while. It seems like it's aimed at a younger audience.
No, I will be avoiding his narration. There only seemed to be 3 different voices that he used for different characters (there were more than 3 characters in the book). There was the normal voice, the "standing so far away from the microphone that I couldn't hear him" voice and the big monstrous creature voice created by cupping his hands over his mouth.
If the rest of the series was voiced by someone else, I might finish the series one day but sadly that will not happen.
My opinion may have been spoilt by listening to the spectacular Lies of Locke Lamora just before this which is a pretty good book with the greatest voice acting I've ever heard.
