  1. Eric Eric says:

    Great stuff Thief delivers on the promise of Priest, with a fast paced and tighter narrative Matt Colville keeps the story moving and I found myself reading chapter after chapter Great ending and I can t wait to read Fighter Interesting characters, good dialogue, and epic deadly fights A fun series.

  2. Mike Ackerman Mike Ackerman says:

    Where the first book takes you through a dark, emotional quagmire, Thief focuses on Heden s home While everything and everyone around him seem to be feeling gating off their own demons, it s now Heden s turn to both fight and forgive This second book wouldn t let me put it down Colville has found a way to weave a story of mystery, politics, and adventure, into what I would consider to be one of my now all time favor the books.

  3. Nicole Nicole says:

    Great setting, I enjoy the details that are well thought out and give distinction from other versions of familiar fantasy tropes The layers of politics and plot are well paced In general I find the protagonist to be difficult to sympathize with however the rest of the cast of characters are interesting andbalanced in personality.

  4. SaintOfSpiders SaintOfSpiders says:

    Great story with ominous twists and turns Didn t suffer from rpgitis like it s predecessor and was a genuinely fun and coherent book to read.

  5. Boris Boris says:

    Colville really knows how to write Very powerful stuff, I d totally recommend it for anyone who likes RPG or fantasy.

    The first book in this series is one of my favorite fantasy books I thought I had reviewed it before, but since I can t locate that review, a little bit about Priest before I review its sequel Priest s protagonist, Heden, is a former campaigner, or Ratcatcher as it s called in this world Heden is a man troubled by his past and is trying to redeem himself by doing right in his present Without going too much into the plot, he rescues a young woman that those in power would prefer dead, and the The first book in this series is one of my favorite fantasy books I thought I had reviewed it before, but since I can t locate that review, a little bit about Priest before I review its sequel Priest s protagonist, Heden, is a former campaigner, or Ratcatcher as it s called in this world Heden is a man troubled by his past and is trying to redeem himself by doing right in his present Without going too much into the plot, he rescues a young woman that those in power would prefer dead, and then he is sent on a mission on which he s expected to fail This book has everything I like in the fantasy genre It shows the respect for its characters on par with Patrick Rothfuss Name of the Wind It has a similar level of grim humor as a Joe Abercombie book, as well as a sense of a fully developed world ready to explore as any of the greats have created It has all that and then there s this one line of dialogue, where Heden eloquently states the theme and says, A man is better than the worst thing he s ever done It seems simple but right there I feel like this sets this book apart It s about something important redemption and also about how we judge people In Thief, we get to exploreof the Ratcatchers world, and it s every bit as vast and fully realized as we suspected in Priest We learnabout the world s players We learnabout the young woman that Heden rescued back in the beginning of Priest In addition to his excellent sense of world building, Colville maintains a high level of grim humor as Heden is confronted with odds that are initially beyond his understanding These are some of my favorite scenes Heden crossing the line between bravery and stupidity, and what observers of this have to say are brilliantly crafted and hysterical Again it makes me want to draw a comparison to Rothfuss for how much Colville makes us care about the characters, feel for them, mourn when one of those we ve come to care about is lost, and how we come to seethe at and loathe the villain The theme is less straight forward, but Thief is also about something Heden repeats his brilliant words from Priest about redemption But here we see this viewpoint mature Heden is faced with someone that he forgives but cannot fully redeem And we see that maturation Heden forgives that person, but that person still needs to pay for what he s done, redemption is earned not granted In a way, I wish these books had been taken to a traditional publisher First, the series is good enough that it deserves to be promoted It deserves to be mentioned alongside with the other great fantasies of our era In addition to the thematic items mentioned above, I have to say that as much I like a good fantasy doorstop book, the fact that Colville has achieved what he has in these shorter 300 page, quicker reads, is amazing The second reason, is that in Thief there was one thing that I think should have been fixed in editing The point of view for the vast majority of the book is a close third person, which is fine, except in a few scenes the point of view jumps and there s some head popping, which I wish had been caught in editing That said, it seems nitpicky to mention given the fantastic experience that the book delivers I m looking forward to spendingtime in this world and will pick up volume three as soon as it s available

    A fantastic sequel to Priest, this book has lots to recommend it The plot is intricate, with many actors having their own plans that intertwine with the main arc the characters are complicated and are forced to deal with both internal and external conflict Now, this is noir, which means we re going to go in expecting some problematic ladies Colville does pretty well with them we have an interesting array of side characters who have their own lives that often not not always revolve around A fantastic sequel to Priest, this book has lots to recommend it The plot is intricate, with many actors having their own plans that intertwine with the main arc the characters are complicated and are forced to deal with both internal and external conflict Now, this is noir, which means we re going to go in expecting some problematic ladies Colville does pretty well with them we have an interesting array of side characters who have their own lives that often not not always revolve around the main character, although Vanora at least has a familial instead of a romantic connection Heden often sees women as beings needing to be saved luckily they sometimes remind him that that isn t always the case.Overall this is a suspenseful, tightly written book with flawed but lovable characters Please please please finish the next book soon

    It is worth noting that, in the time between my purchasing of this novel, and my reading it, the author has gone back and revised it I read this on my kindle, but I do believe the version I read is the pre edited version.Note Spoilers for book one.Setting The entirety of this book takes place in the city of Celkirk Imagine a fairly large city in the traditional dark ages European fashion of fantasy and you ll have it about right Matt has previously gone on record as saying that the world for It is worth noting that, in the time between my purchasing of this novel, and my reading it, the author has gone back and revised it I read this on my kindle, but I do believe the version I read is the pre edited version.Note Spoilers for book one.Setting The entirety of this book takes place in the city of Celkirk Imagine a fairly large city in the traditional dark ages European fashion of fantasy and you ll have it about right Matt has previously gone on record as saying that the world for his novels was designed originally for his DD games and he decided to just use that since he d already gone through all the trouble of setting it up.Characters HedenHeden is the titular priest from the previous book Heden made some terrible mistake in his past and seems to harbor a great deal of regret about it, though exactly what that mistake is hasn t been ever fully explained For years he shut himself away from the world, only coming out of his hiding place when forced to at the start of the previous novel Heden really doesn t much seem to want to be involved with any of this but now that he is, he s going to see it through the way he thinks he should Vanora VioletThis young girl is a former prostitute whom Heden saved during the last book She starts to have a bitof an active role in this book, both because her past is coming back to haunt her and because she is working on what she wants for her future AimsleyAimsley works for one of the gangs in town sort of He s a fixer My understanding of the position is that that a fixer isn t exactly part of the gang, but they work for the gang fixing problems It s some strange legal loophole or arrangement they have with the guards I ll be honest, it doesn t make sense to me either, but I probably am explaining it poorly Aimsley is a polder read gnome halfling and an adept thief who also dabbles into shadow magic as is necessary for his work.Plot There are a few things going on with the plot here There is some continuation from the previous novel, Heden now aware that the bishop intentionally caused the fall of the green order and allowed a city to be destroyed Though Heden dealing with this is actually a small part of the novel The majority of the novel is spent dealing with Vanora choosing to open Heden s inn and The Count causing trouble The Count is the leader of one of the gangs in town and he s recently come into possession of a substance called night dust which is something akin to an evil spirit Upon shattering one of the little glass marbles of the black stuff, a ghost like creature will attack whoever is closest If the ghost is successful in killing them, the person is reanimated as a powerful zombie, which continues with the killing of any unfortunate people nearby.My Thoughts I can see the DD influences in the world though I do wonder how much of that is because I was told it was previously a DD world, it s so much easier to see something when you re told it s there but thankfully I see it differently here than in Dragons of Autumn Twilight, the first of the Dragonlance novels In that book, I felt I could almost see the table itself with the normal, boring people sat around it, and the book was pretty much exclusively a point for point explanation of what happened in the game It wasn t the wizard coughed loudly and then explained the situation it wasJohn said that his character explains things and then ate a couple Doritos In this book the setting felt very much like the world of a DD campaign, but I didn t see through it to the game It felt like a proper novel that just happened to be set in such a world.The biggest issue I had with the novel was the constant, rapid shifting of perspectives The first novel didn t have this issue as it followed only Heden I don t mind multi perspective novels normally, but this one was a bit rough, mainly due to a combination of two things the chapters are very very short and almost every chapter follows a different perspective than the previous one This leads to there rarely beingthan a few pages without jumping to someone else, usually doing something different This does calm down towards the end of the book, but for a decent portion of the book it s a lot of jumping around It s cute that Colville found a way for city watchmen to be referred to as copper due to the copper coins given to them when they enter the service However, the explanation for this comes late in the book, leading to it feeling like out of place, modern day slang for most of the book

    Thief by Matthew Colville is an amazing fantasy book that follows a method similar to the first book in the Ratcatchers series, not overly describing everything in excruciating detail The story continues following Heden as he returns from the forest and begins planning his vengeance against the ones who set him up to fail He wants to go straight to the culprit but has others he has to care about, mainly Vanora who is similar to a daughter currently to him As Heden tries to make his moves, oth Thief by Matthew Colville is an amazing fantasy book that follows a method similar to the first book in the Ratcatchers series, not overly describing everything in excruciating detail The story continues following Heden as he returns from the forest and begins planning his vengeance against the ones who set him up to fail He wants to go straight to the culprit but has others he has to care about, mainly Vanora who is similar to a daughter currently to him As Heden tries to make his moves, others in the city push their agendas forward and the balance of law and chaos begins to shift The book was not written with a heavy intent to push ideas into the limelight, just to make a good story that readers enjoy One issue that is prevalent is alcoholism that takes its hold onto Aimsley Pinwhistle who uses it to forget the horrible things he does He forgets the faces of the people he s killed and is eventually forced out of his habit with wordsthan anything In fact my favorite moment of the book and the one I thought was the most powerful has Aimsley in it talking to Heden In this scene after a major battle Heden repeats his most important phrase, A man is better than the worst thing he s ever done, Heden said This quote is so applicable to the real world in all its variety It is the hope that people change, people can recover.This book is great for anyone who love fast fantasy, where they rely on their own brains to fill in the blacks of descriptive detail as the author jumps onto the next important scene I would recommend it to all people who have grown up reading Percy Jackson and enjoy the quick pace of going from one important event to the next I don t think that this book is revolutionary in spreading important ideas and important themes This book is muchabout telling a good story with some themes handed to the reader in direct quote, as Heden is very much a simple minded man when is comes to vocabulary and likes getting to the point
