Product description

Amazon.com Review

Nicholas Valiarde is both a nobleman and a thief, perhaps the greatest thief in the kingdom of Ile-Rien, where magic is a part of everyday life. Around him he has gathered an unparalleled band of criminals, including a well-known actress, an ex-military officer, a hardened killer, and a sorcerer with a bad drug habit. Valiarde, in the guise of criminal overlord Donatien, is amassing a small fortune in gold and jewels with one purpose in mind: to take his revenge on Count Montesq, the man who leveled false charges of necromancy against Nicholas's beloved godfather Edouard, leading to Edouard's execution. But Nicholas's band of ne'er-do-wells isn't the only force stalking the dark streets of Vienne, and Nicholas is about to face a real necromancer in a battle whose outcome will affect all of Ile-Rien. Wells has created a fast-paced action-adventure story with a wonderful cast of characters and a twisting, turning plot that will keep you flipping pages well into the evening hours. --Craig Engler

From Booklist

In the kingdom of Ile-Rien, few know that Nicholas Valiarde is the infamous thief Donatien. Nicholas and his enigmatic lover, Madeline, aided by crafty companions and opium-addicted sorcerers, are stealing gold to frame Count Mountesq, the man responsible for the execution of Nicholas' adoptive father, Edouard. Mountesq had falsified charges of necromancy against Edouard, and while spiritualism and sorcery are commonly practiced in Ile-Rien, necromancy is illegal and punishable by death. Now Nicholas is obsessed with revenge. One night, Nicholas as Donatien is stung by a mysterious vapor emanating from a golem, responsibility for which seems to lie with Doctor Octave, a spiritualist impostor under the influence of a malicious entity. Nicholas discovers the portal of communication between the mountebank and the entity, and soon his troupe is running from the malevolent, destructive essence of Constant Macob, a true necromancer whose bones and spirit have been imprisoned in the bowels of Mondollott House for decades. A chillingly convincing fantasy that will entrap genre readers. Karen Simonetti
