Part of the Rogues of the Republic series
"If Donald Westlake had given Dortmunder a sword, if Douglas Adams had hitchhiked with a unicorn, Weekes has crafted that rare fantasy novel that both embraces and challenges the genre . . . this is, simply, a terrific damn novel." - Greg Rucka, New York Times bestselling author of Alpha, The Punisher, and BatmanLoch is seeking revenge.
It would help if she wasnâ€™t in jail. The plan: to steal a priceless elven manuscript that once belonged to her family, but now is in the hands of the most powerful man in the Republic. To do so Loch â€” former soldier, former prisoner, current fugitive â€” must assemble a crack team of magical misfits that includes a cynical illusionist, a shapeshifting unicorn, a repentant death priestess, a talking magical warhammer, and a lad with seemingly no skills to help her break into the floating fortress of Heavenâ€™s Spire and the vault that holds her familyâ€™s treasure â€” all while eluding the unrelenting pursuit of Justicar Pyvic, whose only mission is to see the law upheld. What could possibly go wrong?
