Synopsis: Rags is a thief—an excellent one. He’s stolen into noble’s coffers, picked soldier’s pockets, and even liberated a ring or two off the fingers of passersby. Until he’s caught by the Queensguard and forced to find an ancient fae relic for a sadistic royal sorcerer.
But Rags could never have guessed this “relic” would actually be a fae himself—a distractingly handsome, annoyingly perfect, ancient fae prince called Shining Talon. Good thing Rags can think on his toes, because things just get stranger from there…
Review: I really liked this book! The book was wonderfully well written and it has amazing character development. The characters as very well written and I loved our main characters. The interactions felt so genuine and the chemistry was so good! I didn’t even mind that it was a slow burn romance. The world building was also well done and I was intrigued by the plot from start to finish.
The only issue I had with the book overall is that the book had a slow burn romance, which some readers will not like, and the book felt a little cliché here and there. The language was also a bit weird since it felt so modern but the story takes place so long ago.
Verdict: A well done book!
