Robin Lythgoeabout this book: Crow is a scrappy, independent thief with a finely polished reputation and plans to retire in luxury—until the wizard Duzayan kidnaps the love of his life. All he has to do to rescue her is make a trip to the middle of nowhere without getting killed by bandits, find an impossible treasure, avoid the treasure's powerful guardians, and make the return trip through the wild. Lacking confidence in Crow's commitment to his love, Duzayan ups the ante by slipping Crow a poison meant to ensure his speedy return. Adding insult to injury, the wretched wizard decides to pair Crow up with Tanris, his least favorite person. As it happens, Tanris is the law-keeper who put Crow in this predicament in the first place. Doomed to work together in spite of obvious bad blood, the pair embarks on a rollicking, snarky ride through a land of wizards, demons, and ghosts. Luckily, Crow is armed with a razor-sharp wit and the love of the gods. They'd need it ….
• "I love a good cloak and purse-cutting dagger, and Crow delivers. He's armed with a silver tongue, sleeping dust, feet that'd make a cat feel ungainly, a razor mind, and a diploma for best-in-class at the school of fine thieving and infiltration (awarded by me). I've read about approximately a billion thieves and even played the vintage first-person-looter games Thief, but Crow still impressed me as a sterling example of skulduggery." — A. E. Marling (GoodReads)
