DISCOVER THE START OF AN EPIC FANTASY TRILOGY THAT BEGINS WITH A HEIST AND QUICKLY EXPLODES INTO A FULL-TILT, LAST-DITCH PLAN TO SAVE HUMANITY

Ardor Benn is no ordinary thief - a master of wildly complex heists, he styles himself a Ruse Artist Extraordinaire.

When he gets hired for his most daring ruse yet, Ardor knows he'll need more than quick wit and sleight of hand. Assembling a dream team of forgers, disguisers, schemers and thieves, he sets out to steal from the most powerful king the realm has ever known.

But it soon becomes clear there's more at stake than fame and glory - Ard and his team might just be the last hope for human civilisation.

'Mission Impossible, but with magic, dragons, and a series of heists that go from stealing a crown to saving the world. A fun, terrific read I heartily recommend' David Dalglish

MEDIA REVIEWS
This book just really dug itself into my heart and soul and I cannot wait to continue with the remaining two books and get lost in this world again -- DRAGON AND PAGES
Mission Impossible, but with magic, dragons, and a series of heists that go from stealing a crown to saving the world. A fun, terrific read I heartily recommend
I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It is easily the best fantasy-heist book I have read in years!
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'
Commendable adult fantasy debut . . . fun, entertaining and has a unique magic system . . . pretty darn cool
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 favorite fantasy ne'er-do-well
The plot and world of this book are one of a kind . . . a very impressive debut
In general, a classic heist. In detail, a marvelously, clever plotted and genius story . . . From start to finish this is an amazing read
This is one of the best times I've ever had whilst reading a book. It is fun, absolutely crammed with adventure, wit and cleverness, features loveable and intriguing characters, and demonstrates so many schemes within schemes that Ardor Benn makes Locke Lamora look like a rank amateur -- FANTASY HIVE
