Publisher's Summary

Only one thing matters to Kai: getting the job done, and doing it better than anyone else.

But when a beautiful thief crashes his security gig, claiming she's trying to protect the valuable artifact he's guarding, all his careful plans go up in flames. He doesn't believe a word she says - until the item is stolen right out from under them.

Recovering the artifact before the real thief can unleash its ancient magic requires insider knowledge - information the mysterious trespasser possesses. Teaming up with a stranger isn't Kai's idea of smart, but he'll need all the help he can get to take on a notorious rogue and arcane power from the time of the gods.

So Disappointed

I did not enjoy the narrator, who unfortunately just did not do this story justice. I don't wish to be mean, but simply to explain what bothered me, the male characters sounded like teenage boys trying too hard to be cool and the female character sounded expressionless and somewhat robotic. The inflection of her dialogue almost never changed. Excited - same, not excited - same, teeth chattering from cold - same, angry - same. That might be why I just couldn't get into the story. I have loved all of the other stories in the series, but this one didn't pull me in the way the others did. Cris Dukehart, or Rob Jacobsen, who co-narrated Warping Minds and Other Misdemeanors, would have been a better choice.

Epic Modern Fantasy

this is a romance, an adventure, and really good book.
I recommend it wholeheartedly.
the guild codex series is great but I could easily see someone picking this up and getting into it without the backstory.
the only criticism I have is for the performance of the narrator. the protagonists are 20 something modern guys from downtown Vancouver. but they sound like grizzled war veterans or something. I still enjoyed it, but kind of odd. mostly noticable with Aaron and Ezra.

Liked

For a short stop I thought it was pretty good but I am hoping next book in the series has more details and depth.

Not up to her usual

This book was not as good as the others in this series. It felt like it was written by someone else. She seemed to forget Kai has a girlfriend so I didn’t care for that part.

Very Loosely Connected to the Series

The story, action and elements of this novella are fun. However, the connection to the rest of the series is pretty weak. The characters which show up in later books are really just interchangeable with similar character in any action fantasy book. I wondered at the end what became of the "damsel" in subsequent storylines. She was interesting enough, but pretty much unconnected to the overarching series plotline.

Good story but awful narrator

The story is great as usual for this author but the narrator was awful. Listening to him was like nails on a chalk board.

its short. I'm not really sure if it will play a role in the main series. it is interesting to see Kai's perspective.

A sweet short story

Nelson Hobbs does a very creditable Kai. Nice to see this character's POV brought to life. A bit unnecessarily violent in my view, usually these characters have a life or death reason for killing another person but here Kai moves swiftly into kill mode on a man who is mostly just a master cat burgler. I know the reasons for violence can be flimsy in this series but the lines between good and bad guys have mostly dissolved.
