The Last Lies of Ardor Benn

The Last Lies of Ardor Benn

The final book in an action-packed epic fantasy series set in a world with dragon-fuelled magic where master con artist Ardor Benn takes a job to steal a living dragon

Ardor Benn has takes his lies to a new level, infiltrating high society so he can steal a priceless resource. But now that he’s on the inside, he finds himself poring over ancient texts, searching for answers to his deepest questions. He discovers something is coming. Something world-ending.

Now, an old enemy is extorting him for one last job. Steal a live dragon. He doesn’t know how, and he doesn’t know why. But he’s got a feeling that it’s a job he has to take. Only problem is, Ard’s running short on time and shorter on lies. And his personal ambitions are alienating all of his allies.

With no one else to rely on, he’ll have to trust the one person nobody else does: himself.

Reviews

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, on THE THOUSAND DEATHS OF ARDOR BENN
I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It is easily the best fantasy-heist book I have read in years!
A FANTASTICAL LIBRARIAN on THE THOUSAND DEATHS OF ARDOR BENN
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 on THE THOUSAND DEATHS OF ARDOR BENN
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
