really liked it
bookshelves: sword-and-laser
Read from February 23 to March 13, 2012

This one *slowly* won me over. I really enjoyed the brash intro, but then the tale of the title character's carefully plotted long-cons in an alternate late medieval world (with a few magical trappings) seemed stuck in an amusing-but-not-engaging mode. I almost put it down.

But half-way through things picked up considerably with a introduction of a worthy nemesis, and the last third of the book had me truly hooked. I'm interested in the next in the series, and hope that it will be consistently strong instead of another slow build-up to goodness.
