Loch is seeking revenge. It would help if she wasn’t in jail. The plan: To steal a priceless elven manuscript that once belonged to her family, but is now in the hands of the most powerful man in the Republic. To do so, Loch - former soldier, former prisoner, and current fugitive - must assemble a crack team of magical misfits that includes a cynical illusionist, a shape shifting unicorn, a repentant death priestess, a talking magical war hammer, and a lad with seemingly no skills. This crack team of misfits will help her break into the floating fortress of Heaven’s Spire and the vault that holds her family’s treasure - all while eluding the unrelenting pursuit of Justicar Pyvic, whose only mission is to see the law upheld. What could possibly go wrong?

I enjoyed the light, tongue and cheek humor and the twists in the story. I read a lot of fantasy as a teen and this book brings back some of the fun, with a bit of sly irreverence to standard fantasy elements.
I really enjoyed the dialog between the characters and the humorous comebacks.
At first I found the narrators voice a little difficult to follow, but within a few minutes, I found myself immersed in the story, narrator forgotten.
The ultimate fantasy heist? A unicorn, tinkerer, magician and two thieves? I am not great at tag lines, but it's a great heist adventure I couldn't stop listening to!
I was looking for something light, funny and magical ( since I was feeling like the world was rather bleak at that moment) and this fit the bill perfectly. I enjoyed the performance and story immensely.
River On The Edge
A con job, swindle, & revenge story... A fast paced adventure with strong characters and a lot of twist and turns!
A good story brought to life with great narration. I was instantly drawn to the main character and the storyline that actually had a few surprises in it as well
Well delivered with multiple strands of characters interwoven with enough back story to make it fun and interesting. When the individual characters begin to interact it is like well woven tapestry
Actually enjoyed them all. Very well delivered with great personality for all of them. The Death Priestess though....Very interesting.
No. Thanks though. Was bored and didn't find anything new or interesting for that matter.
No, I know there are better fantasy novels out there
No because had I known the story I'd never cared to listen in the first place.
Not a fan. At all. Ridiculous story, silly characters, and few memorable lines. Not impressed.
Maybe I would have enjoyed it more if I had read it instead of listened to it.
Lock's true motives for robbing the official are only revealed towards the end of the book. I had a hard time caring about the characters or the robbery because it seemed like the only motive was greed. I feel like the plot was just poorly executed.
Her voice really got on my nerves. I wanted to slap her every time she spoke as the unicorn. I won't be buying any more books that she narrates.
Disapointment that I wasted $8 and 12 hours.
