Altapasaeda, capital of the Castoval, is about to be besieged by its own king - and where else would luckless, somewhat reformed thief Easie Damasco be but trapped within the city's walls?  Faced with a war they can't win and a populace too busy fighting amongst itself to even try, the Castovalian defenders are left with one desperate option.  Far in the northern lands of

I’m always a bit leery of jumping into a series when it’s a few books in, so I will admit to needing a bit of time to adjust to the story and its host of characters who have already shared considerable backstory. I’m glad I persevered. David Tallerman has an easy, and broadly entertaining style that drew me into his world.

From what I can gather, Easie Damasco has made it a habit to end up in the wrong place at the wrong time. Now he has fallen in with the ringleaders of a rebellion, and the cit

Oh dear, this is awkward. I’ve managed to pick up the last book in a series without realizing there were preceding novels. I do have an excuse! I was visiting family in the UK and saw “Prince Thief” faced out in the local Waterstones. I quickly skimmed the back, thought it looked interesting, and downloaded it to my Kindle at the first opportunity. It wasn’t until I started reading that I realized I had goofed, but I was too drawn into the story to stop. So, my little disclaimer up front is that ...more

Thank you to the publishers at NetGalley for granting me access to this ARC. They gave it in faith that I will write an honest review. It is a work of opinion and should be read as such.

Rated 2 / 5


This book was difficult to read. I DID read the other two as a prequel to this because I felt that it deserved me to know the story leading up to it. However, I just can’t find it in me to like it. It has questing, battle-fighting, magic, mon

This review originally published in Looking For a Good Book. Rated 2.0 of 5

Prince Thief is the third book in a trilogy and I haven't read the other two. It shouldn't be absolutely necessary to read the first two books, but as is often the case, the reader may find him or herself wondering what went on before.

Easie Damasco is a bit of a rogue. Okay...more than a bit. He's a thief and he's a bit of an ass who likes to talk. But he's being pushed in to more heroic role, taking on a king who is layi

One thing that stood out to me in particular is how much growth and development the characters have gone through. Prince Thief has a different feel to the earlier books in the series, it bein
So, I abandoned reading this when I was about eighty percent of the way through because honestly I was tired of the characters and the world, and really everything about it. Today I finally finished it off, and I'm still less than impressed. It wasn't bad enough that I never intended to finish it, and the ending proved to be alright and mediocre. I felt it was a bit of a cop-out, and kind of a letdown, but I didn't expect any better.

I definitely liked this one better than the second book in the series, though it was still a lot of moving people in circles around the country and not a whole lot of depth. I'll tell you what I did like, though—everyone professed to love Saltlick, while they all manipulated him and nobody respected him (to the point where nobody even bothered to learn his real name), and finally he did the giantish equivalent of saying "Screw you guys, I'm going home." That was fabulous. Pacifist giants are the ...more

It was a good book but I did feel like it was slow to get staring and didn't hold me gripped on every page . Though there were parts further on in the book that did work really well by the end it was really worth the read

I have to admit I liked this the least of all the books in this series. Easie spends large chunks of his time just being an observer and having no influence on events. However, the subplot involving Saltlick and his fellow giants was well handled and very moving.
