Loved this book. Certainly one of my favorites. Father Chains in particular caused me laugh out loud - often - Michael Page did a great job.
There were a lot of great moments and funny quotes. This one that really tickled me...
“What kind of knife is this?”
Locke held a rounded buttering utensil up for Chains’ inspection.
“It’s all wrong. You couldn’t kill anyone with this.”
“Well, not very easily, I’ll grant you that, my boy.”
Chains guided Locke in the placement of the butter knife and assorted small dishes and bowls.
“But when the quality get together to dine, it’s impolite to knock anybody off with anything but poison. That thing is for scooping butter, not slicing windpipes.”
The character dialog in this book is some of the most entertaining I've ever heard/read in a fantasy series. The world building is very quick to pick up and jump into but it also surprises you with how deep it eventually goes.
An excellent "Thieves’ tale". Cool but passionate characters. Plot twists and turns and great con artistry.
Definitely "Father Chains".
I laughed pretty often at the impressively colorful and descriptive insults and expletives uttered by the characters.
If you're any sort of gamer that likes to play a thief/rogue character type, you'll appreciate this book.

This is a great story, containing everything an epic fantasy reader yearns for. Crazy ambition, foul villains, magic, and deep twisting plots are woven deftly together into an intricate tale of destiny, blood and vengeance.

While I rated the performance as 5, I will admit to listening to the book on 1.25 speed, as I otherwise found the reading slow. The plot was not, however, and this was a fun listen with imaginative scenarios, plausible within the world Lynch created. Worth the credit, for sure.
Well-written work of art. Unique and poetic. full of beautiful imagery, lively character structures, and a decent story. I highly recommend this book.
Really enjoy this series. Fast paced strong characters, extreme confidence, you won't be unhappy with this audio book.
