Publisher's Summary

Jack Myst infiltrated the Thieves Guild to avenge his mother's murder but never expected to find a home. Now a master thief, he grapples with his new identity as he unravels the secrets of the fallen Guildmaster. The trail of questions will lead to a shocking truth: that his foe is a remnant of an ancient race, the very devil of Lumineia.

Skorn.

Seething with hatred and cast out by the thieves, Skorn is not without allies. Forcing an assassin into service, he journeys to the forgotten fortress of Margauth, where a cult worships him as a god. With such an army at his command, he seeks a return to power and two keys that unlock a legendary vault.

The Vault of the Eternals.

Fun and utterly ridiculous...

I have listened to this entire series a couple of times. Each time it makes me laugh out loud at Jack's arrogance, and his daring death defying escapes, each more ridiculous than the last. I cry at the loss of fallable but loved characters. Some of the character interactions are predictable but the adventures are not. This is a fun and enthralling story.

A great followup!

I really enjoyed a number of other books about rogues and thieves (like The Lies of Locke Lamora) and this is now right up there near the top of my list. The protagonist has a good mix of cockiness and vulnerability and the story is unique enough that despite my dislike of genre mixing (slight spoiler sorry), I was still captivated. After listening to the first one, I immediately went and bought the other two books in the series and was not disappointed.

The second book was just as good as the first and still very engaging. I thoroughly enjoyed it and looked forward to the 3rd book.

good story

Jack's story is a fun adventure. The narrator is excellent. The popping sounds was distracting.

Jack has done it again!

What made the experience of listening to Thief in the Myst the most enjoyable?

The narrator is great.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jack of course! Though I found Lorella's character to be very relatable.

What about Derek Perkins’s performance did you like?

His voices. Jack sounds like Jon Snow!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Totally, if I could have

entertaining story but not great

This is an entertaining tale but not captivating. it is a nice story to listen to while working but lacks the depth I look for in a story to immerse myself in.

Adventure and excitement!

I was introduced to Jack in the white Mage series and have enjoyed every moment of this series. Can't wait for the next book ( and to listen to this one again!)

Clever storyline.

Outcomes were very cleverly borne out. Did not appear to be forced or weakly contrived.
