The Palace Job goodreads
Patrick Weekes (Rogues of the Republic #1)
A fantasy heist novel, with all the standard tropes for a heist, including the reversal at the end and the motley crew. But it's such fun. An awful lot of modern stories don't really grasp the idea of fun. Weekes grasps it with both hands and hangs on for dear life as the crew roar through. There are lines in here that made me actually laugh out loud; just wry observations by characters who seem actually real. Sure, there's not much in the way of deeper heartwrenching meaning in here, but who bloody cares when it's this enjoyable? More! More, I say!
