Publisher's Summary

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.

What the Critics Say

"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." (Publishers Weekly)

    "The full series is very good."

    The first book is good but the characters are better explored in the next two. All of them are well narrated and tie in nicely together.

    I hold a BA in History from York University of Toronto; a 3yr Diploma in Computer Networking from Sheridan College in Oakville Ontario. I have been "reading" audio books sinces the late 80s and a member of Audible back to 2004. What a really like is a good long story preferable over 30 hours. :)

    Story
    "Good Early Novel"

    Overall I wanted to like this novel. Eli Moonpress is an interest character; the magic in this world has it's flavor and does not come out sounding too much like a video game or another cookie cut system; Luke Daniels does a lives jobs of reading. The story line is good.

    The problem with the novel is that other then Eli the other characters felt to me very flat and unformed. They did not really seem to be anything other then dialog and a reason to change perspective. They we robbed of desire or personal motivation other then blunt and clear one surface one.

    It's not bad is just feels like a early novel where someone has mastered the art of creating characters who are real.

    "Wish I could give it more stars!"

    Unbelievably good. I'm so glad I found this series. There wasn't one thing about this story that I didn't like (and that's rare!). Luke Daniels is an amazing narrator. I bought the other two in the series as soon as I finished this one. Brilliant!

    "Good for multiple ages"

    I liked the book, my 17 year old liked it and my 11 year old just finished it and can't wait for book two. So nice to have a book that we can all enjoy and talk about. The narrator was great with the various voices.

    "Wizards and spirit protectors"

    Everything, and I do mean everything, comes to life. Not my style, story was one big battle of the wills and power.

    "Simple fun."

    Enjoyable but simplistic. Has potential. Good family listen. Main character is fun. I enjoyed it but didn't find the story deeply engaging. Liked Riyria much better.

    "Fun story with promise of more."

    Luke Daniels is perfect for this series. I may need to listen again to the last bit to keep straight all the characters fates.

    "Not impressed"

    A pretty toothless story... Less than mediocre... There was some good humor and whimsy, but nearly depthless characters, forced/immature dialogue, and nothing to speak of in the way of reaching and grabbing the reader... The narrator saved what would have been a total loss... Bought it on sale, and am glad because woulda have hated to have spent a credit on this...

    "Great book great narrators"

    I'll be honest. The only reason I listened to this book in the first place is Luke Daniels. He is amazing. That being said the book was a wonderful delight. The story developed well and I wasn't able to predict the direction things would go. Supremely pleased
