This was the ultimate caper novel. Malden is a thief in the free city of Ness. He is hired by Bikker, an ancient blade wielder, and Cythera, a witch, to steal the Burgraves' crown. In doing so, he frees a demon, which brings down a tower in the Burgraves' castle. In escaping from the demon, Malden enters the dungeon area of the castle, and frees Kemper, a ghostly gambler.

Malden is later approached by a knight, Sir Croy, who asks him to steal back the crown and help him free Cythera, who is an unwilling servant to the grand sorcerer Hazoth. Malden agrees to do this because he is in love with Cythera. Croy, Cythera, Kemper, and Malden make plans of Hazoth's house
and after many hazards, Malden manages to steal back the crown and gives it to the Burgrave.

This novel appears to be based on a basic Dungeons and Dragons game, but it is totally original. There is humor as well as pathos and characters I love. It is the first book in The Ancient Blades Trilogy, but it is a complete story on it's own. This comes highly recommended.
