Author Name & Publisher: Mason Thomas (Dreamspinner Press)
Publication Date & Length: November 6, 2015 – 256 pgs
Scoundrel by nature and master thief by trade, Mouse is the best there is. Sure, his methods may not make him many friends, but he works best alone anyway. And he has never failed a job.
But that could change.
When a stranger with a hefty bag of gold seduces him to take on a task, Mouse knows he’ll regret it. The job? Free Lord Garron, the son of a powerful duke arrested on trumped up charges in a rival duchy. Mouse doesn’t do rescue missions. He’s no altruistic hero, and something about the job reeks. But he cannot turn his back on that much coin—enough to buy a king’s pardon for the murder charge hanging over his head.
Getting Garron out of his tower prison is the easy part. Now, they must escape an army of guardsmen, a walled keep and a city on lockdown, and a ruthless mage using her power to track them. Making matters worse, Mouse is distracted by Garron’s charm and unyielding integrity. Falling for a client can lead to mistakes. Falling for a nobleman can lead to disaster. But Mouse is unprepared for the dangers behind the plot to make Lord Garron disappear.
Mouse accepts a job to rescues a imprisoned Lord. He needs the money to help his father and he also happens to be good at what he does. So he takes off to go get the Lord while along the way he meets a lot of different characters.
This book has a lot of action, some angst and also some steam too, that takes place mostly off page. I have to say this author really pulled me in with this story and had me on the edge of my seat the whole way through this book.
Mouse goes through a lot in this book to rescue Lord Garron. There is also the twist when you find out who is really behind everything that happened to Garron. Then there was the ending I was honestly holding my breath not sure how it was going to turn out and I have to say I loved the way it did!
All together I loved this book!
I would recommend this book!
