When it comes to Fantasy Fiction I think it's a fair bet to say everybody loves a rogue. Well, get ready to meet your new favourite rogue, Ruse Artiste Extraordinare Ardor Benn.
Along with his companion Raek Benn has been rusing, conning and conniving around The Great Chain but his next challenge is going to be the greatest Ruse of all time and an enormous payout but he's going to need a team.
This, the first in the Kingdom of Grit series is equal parts Ocean's 11 and Mission Impossible with added magic and... Dragons!! The world and its' associated faiths are really well drawn and the story flows from scam to scam effortlessly while keeping the reader guessing as Whitesides pulls the rug out from under our feet once again.
And as for the magic system - ingenious! That's all I'm going to say on the subject. I'll leave the fun of learning about it to you 😉
The Thousand Deaths of Ardor Benn is a huge book and there are two more to follow but fear not! You have no longer to wait than early November for book 2
4.5/5* and I'm going straight into book 2 now. See you on the other side
