What is it about?

Loch and her army buddy Kail must break out of an unbreakable prison so that Loch can gather a team to steal an invaluable elven manuscript which belonged to her family before the war in which she “died”. They gather team of strange characters including an illusionist, a death priestess with a talking war-hammer, an acrobat and safe cracker, and an orphaned kid who just happened to be in the way.

This book was described to me as “laugh out loud funny”.

Was it good?

I went into it expecting to laugh out loud a good number of times, but I’m afraid it only happened twice. Most of the humor seemed to consist of variations on “I slept with your mom last night” and just didn’t strike my funny bone.

The action felt whirlwind as the book is told in short bursts of perspectives with a fight or flight every 2 or 3 pages.

The book was fine, but it just wasn’t for me.

Have you read it? Which heist book would you recommend?
