An epic tale of daring deeds, deceit and dragons.

Ardor Benn is no ordinary thief - a master of wildly complex heists, he styles himself a Ruse Artist Extraordinaire.

When a mysterious priest hires him for the most daring ruse yet, Ardor knows he'll need more than quick wit and sleight of hand. Assembling a dream team of forgers, disguisers, schemers and thieves, he sets out to steal from the most powerful king the realm has ever known.

But it soon becomes clear there's more at stake than fame and glory - Ard and his team might just be the last hope for human civilisation.

Reviews for The Thousand Deaths of Ardor Benn (#1 Wayfarist)

The plot and world of this book are one of a kind . . . a very impressive debut -- THE QUILL TO LIVE This one is for all you fans of Scott Lynch and Marshall Ryan Maresca eager to meet your next favorite fantasy ne'er-do-well -- B&N SCI-FI AND FANTASY BLOG The first act is a high spirited caper as Ardor and his team infiltrate the royal court. The tone turns darker and more violent in the second act as they head to an island where dragons roost . . . a cracking introduction to a new fantasy world that demands further exploration -- SFX Commendable adult fantasy debut . . . fun, entertaining and has a unique magic system . . . pretty darn cool -- BOOKNEST A platinum rogue and no mistake, I defy anyone to not be won over by Ard's charms . . . I had a great time reading this novel. The characters are loads of fun and the plot is so twisty and turny that if it were a baked good it would be a pretzel. If you enjoy The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch . . . then I can confidently predict that The Thousand Deaths of Ardor Benn is the book for you . . . Highly recommended' -- THE ELOQUENT PAGE I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It is easily the best fantasy-heist book I have read in years! -- A FANTASTICAL LIBRARIAN Mission Impossible, but with magic, dragons, and a series of heists that go from stealing a crown to saving the world. A fun, terrific read I heartily recommend -- David Dalglish, author of A DANCE OF CLOAKS
