Publisher's Summary

The Thieves Guild is renowned for their ability to steal anything. Its elite members have robbed nobles of wealth, reputation, and even their honor. The Guildmaster rules them with brutality and fear, yet his name and past are a mystery. From the depths of the Evermist swamp, he seeks a master thief, one who can help him reclaim his lost power.
Young and brash, Jack Myst has drawn the Guildmaster's attention. His feats mark his potential, but his audacity and cunning make him dangerous. After years of preparation, an invitation from the guild is exactly what he desires. When he gets it, his hunt begins, and there is nothing he cannot steal.
Even the Guildmaster's secret.

really......really good!

I was happily listening to what I thought was a nice story when the plot grabbed me and held me strongly till the end. i listen to multiple books at once unless one is so compelling I can't switch to another. Doesn't happen often so I know that when it does I have a gem in my hand. hey

What a gem, no a DIAMOND!

What did you love best about Jack of Thieves?

The dialogue for Jack was so funny and witty I was surprised at how far it went. The story was well written and fun. There was never a slow moment in my opinion.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Totally, I had to find more things to do just to keep listening.

Generic and unremarkable

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Gods no!
I hate being critical of someone else's hard work, and to be fair the writing isn't terrible, if this is a first attempt at a novel by a young adult writer then I'd say it shows promise.
The story it'self is clunky, the characters two dimensional and ham-fistedly presented, the world building nearly non-existent, the magic system unexplained and uninteresting and the imagery honestly felt as though it was drawn straight from a bad computer game or a dodgy kids cartoon.

Has Jack of Thieves put you off other books in this genre?

It serves as a salutary lesson in being skeptical of any book with a 5 star rating, but I've read plenty of other equally pulpy sci-fi / fantasy novels.

What about Derek Perkins’s performance did you like?

A great performance, clear and with consistent characterisation, can't ask for more in a narrator.

Did Jack of Thieves inspire you to do anything?

It inspired me to find something more enjoyable to listen to and to write this review.. so yes, yes it did.

Any additional comments?

Ben, do yourself a favor and read "The Anatomy of Story" before plotting your next book.

Outstanding listen.

This audio book was an outstanding listen. I can not wait until the rest of the trilogy is released. Ben Hale is fast becoming my number one author. I really hope there are many more books in the future.another strong narration by Derick Perkins. If you want a good book to loose your self in then give this a try you wont be disappointed.

A new drinking game

Everything the words Smirk or Trio gets used... take a shot of something strong. You won't get past the first few chapters. I'm enjoying the series but the author needs to find some new descriptive words.

A modern classic of fantasy fiction

Coming straight off the Cycle series of books, I found this to be exactly what I was after. A refreshing tale of thieves and revenge with a flair of bond.
The story had an excellent conclusion while peppering hints throughout the tale of a much larger plot with an intriguing cultist history of ancient civilisation.
Jack of thieves contains everything I could want in a modern fantasy story and I cannot wait to begin book no. 2
