I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It is easily the best fantasy-heist book I have read in years! -- A FANTASTICAL LIBRARIAN on THE THOUSAND DEATHS OF ARDOR BENN
A platinum rogue and no mistake, I defy anyone to not be won over by Ard's charms . . . I had a great time reading this novel. The characters are loads of fun and the plot is so twisty and turny that if it were a baked good it would be a pretzel. If you enjoy The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch . . . then I can confidently predict that The Thousand Deaths of Ardor Benn is the book for you . . . Highly recommended -- THE ELOQUENT PAGE on THE THOUSAND DEATHS OF ARDOR BENN
The first act is a high-spirited caper as Ardor and his team infiltrate the royal court. The tone turns darker and more violent in the second act as they head to an island where dragons roost . . . a cracking introduction to a new fantasy world that demands further exploration
This one is for all you fans of Scott Lynch and Marshall Ryan Maresca eager to meet your next favourite fantasy ne'er-do-well
The plot and world of this book are one of a kind . . . a very impressive debut -- THE QUILL TO LIVE on THE THOUSAND DEATHS OF ARDOR BENN
In general, a classic heist. In detail, a marvelously, clever plotted and genius story . . . From start to finish this is an amazing read -- THE BOOK PLANK on THE THOUSAND DEATHS OF ARDOR BENN
Whitesides sticks the landing in his conclusion to the Kingdom of Grit trilogy . . . The quest takes numerous unexpected turns as it builds to a thoroughly satisfying climax. Whitesides excels at balancing detailed worldbuilding and page-turning plot, sprinkling in plenty of humour along the way. This is a worthy finale to the series -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY (starred review)
From the interesting characters to the compelling and complex storyline that does not stop and a magic system that is as unique as I have ever seen, it is just plain fun all the way through. I loved The Kingdom of Grit, and I think you might, too. It gets my stamp of approval, and I recommend it for fantasy fans." -- FanFiAddict
