What Gen is interested in is anyone's guess. Their journey toward the treasure is both dangerous and difficult, lightened only imperceptibly by the tales they tell of the old gods and goddesses.
"I can steal anything." The famous last words of Gen before he lands in the king's prison. The magus, the king scholar, offers Gen a 'job' he can't refuse. So Gen, the Magus, a solider, and two of the magus apprentices go look for a hidden treasure.
Straight to the point. I liked this book and I didn't expect to...at all. This books come highly recommended on Booklr (book side of Tumblr.) and I decided to give it a shot and I'm so glad that I did. The way the author writes, it's engaging, leaving you wanting to more, not wanting to put the book down for fear that you will miss something.
The characters though. I don't really have a stand out one that made me love them like everyone else. I kind of like Gen and Sophos, heck even the magus. I found Gen to be really whiny to the point it was becoming annoying. Me not connecting with the characters knocked it down half a start.
The other reason why I knocked it down another half star was because I found the last two chapters to be very confusing. Maybe it's just me, but I would of loved it if it was written a little more clearer. I'm still confused, but I think I kind of get it.
I'm hoping that I will love the next few books in the series and fall in love with these characters like everyone else.
