Summary

Detan Honding, a wanted con man of noble birth and ignoble tongue, has found himself in the oasis city of Aransa. He and his trusted companion, Tibs, may have pulled off one too many cons against the city's elite and need to make a quick escape. They set their sights on their biggest heist yet - the gorgeous airship of the exiled commodore Thratia. But in the middle of his scheme, a face changer known as a doppel starts murdering key members of Aransa's government. The sudden paranoia makes Detan's plans of stealing Thratia's ship that much harder. And with this sudden power vacuum, Thratia can solidify her power and wreak havoc against the Empire. But the doppel isn't working for Thratia and has her own intentions. Did Detan accidentally walk into a revolution and a crusade? He has to be careful - there's a reason most people think he's dead. And if his dangerous secret gets revealed, he has a lot more to worry about than a stolen airship.

Fun, cheeky, and well written

I wasn't really expecting to enjoy this book as much as I did. The main character, Deaton, was fun, sarcastic, and lived life his own way. It was so much fun to follow his story and see how he faired against the odds stacked against him. The author did a fantastic job of planning everything out and keeping the surprises coming. Definitely, an enjoyable read that I will recommend to anyone.

Fun. Charming. Exciting. A little empty.

I loved the characters. The action was clear and well staged. The world building was just interesting enough to give the sense of depth.

Unfortunately, the protagonists never felt like they had real skin in the game. Sure, they were thrown in over their heads and the physical stakes were constantly raised, but I never saw them face real dilemmas. I never wondered, “What would I do here? This is a tough choice.” And I didn’t really see much of a character arc for any for the two MCs.

Having said that, lots of comedy, swashbuckling, scheming, and quick thinking. I’ll definitely read more in this universe.

A promising debut

Humor, a well-realized world, and fully developed characters make this a promising debut both for the author and the series!
