He's a cocky, sarcastic thief from the slums who's found himself on the end of a job gone wrong, bruised and battered in the royal dungeon, trying to plot his escape. Also, you should know that there's a great deal of diversity, and it's dealt with exactly how it should always be : naturally, with subtlety and grace. I loved the idea of a heist-style plot and the unexpected LGBT romance, and that a queer couple wrote it was really exciting.

It's built off of familiar ideas- the poverty, the court full of manipulation and lies- but the whole dynamic with the fae is fantastic.but the fae love interest, shiny talon, and virtually every other character (who i can’t remember the names of, i’m sorry) were kind of boring to me. Rags the thief has never met a pocket he couldn’t pick, but when he’s captured by a sorcerer with world-ending plans, he realizes even he is in over his head.

isn't really a heist story, nor would it have a group of reluctant heroes who are also friends, nor would it have the gay romance I was promised. Rags the thief has never met a pocket he couldn't pick, but when he's captured by a sorcerer with world-ending plans, he realizes. It suggests that being proficient in many areas without achieving mastery in any of them is less desirable than being an expert in one particular field.

What I love about YA, in particular, is that it's faster-paced than adult fantasy books which makes me read it way faster than said adult SFF. Robert Greene used the phrase "absolute Johannes Factotum" (rather than "Jack of all trades") in his 1592 booklet Greene's Groats-Worth of Wit, [1] to dismissively refer to actor-turned-playwright William Shakespeare; [2] this is the first published mention of Shakespeare. Plus, I do have one character that kind of was a favourite, even though he’s the love interest for one of the more annoying main characters. I want to protect this book like you want to protect a sibling : I can say it's not perfect but you better shut your mouth okay because who even are you? Forced to use his finely honed skills to nab pieces of an ancient fae relic, Rags is stunned to discover that those "relics" just happen to be people: A distractingly handsome Fae prince, A too-honourable Queen's guard deserter, A scrappy daughter of a disgraced noble family, A deceptively sweet-natured prince, A bona fide member of the Resistance, and him.I think this would have truly shined as pre-planned trilogy, with room for better development and world building and more evenly split POVs distribuition which would hopefully lead to higher investment on the secondary characters. Classic YA fantasy tropes break into a fast-paced fantasy revolution whose heart, grit, and consequences are more than the sum of its parts… A smart, stakes-loaded LGBTQ fantasy well worth sticking with, for fans of Six of Crows and Megan Whalen Turner . rags, the thief, is forced by the queen’s sorceress to break into a fae stronghold with only his cleverness, and i actually really liked that. Blogger Taty said that being a jack of all trades developed her transferable skill set, including writing, web design, SEO and languages, and helped her “stand out in full-time and part-time positions and made it easier to secure jobs because I already had the exact skills they wanted. Then there is the queen who never ages, her mages who are all powerful, the defeated fae, and this thief who only wanted a good pay day.

Alex Yates is a web development consultant who has noticed tech is going through a movement “away from highly specialised technical roles and teams toward more general individuals and teams who are better at collaboration. According to marketing consultant Andie Coupland, who likes the term "generalist” and “spent a ten-year in-house career climbing the ranks before setting up on my own last year”, “being able to pick and choose different projects or clients works really well for me. I know there are other characters I could talk about but Rags is the most prominent and memorable one, not because he has a personality or an especially interesting role but because he has the most chapters and I feel like his chapters were the most interesting and most relevant ones. I've been excited to read this book ever since I first heard of it, and so I jumped at FairyLoot's December box once I knew it was inside.

Because yes, there is romance, but the first hint doesn't hit before the 40% mark and anyway, it's much more than romance, which is not really the focus of the story? They also have to outsmart the evil sorcerer Morien, aid the Resistance against the queen, and discover the terrible secret at the heart of the court.
