9781477848203: The Palace Job (Rogues of the Republic)

Loch is seeking revenge.

It would help if she wasn’t in jail.

The plan: to steal a priceless elven manuscript that once belonged to her family, but now is in the hands of the most powerful man in the Republic. To do so Loch—former soldier, former prisoner, current fugitive—must assemble a crack team of magical misfits that includes a cynical illusionist, a shapeshifting unicorn, a repentant death priestess, a talking magical warhammer, and a lad with seemingly no skills to help her break into the floating fortress of Heaven’s Spire and the vault that holds her family’s treasure—all while eluding the unrelenting pursuit of Justicar Pyvic, whose only mission is to see the law upheld.

What could possibly go wrong?

The Palace Job is a funny, action-packed, high-fantasy heist caper in the tradition of Scott Lynch’s Gentleman Bastards series, from debut author Patrick Weekes.

About the Author:

Patrick Weekes was born in the San Francisco Bay Area and attended Stanford University, where he received a B.A. and an M.A. in English Literature.

In 2005, Patrick joined BioWare's writing team in Alberta, Canada. Since then, he’s worked on all three games in the Mass Effect trilogy, where he helped write characters like Mordin, Tali, and Samantha Traynor. He is now working with the Dragon Age team on the third game in the critically acclaimed series, and he has written tie-in fiction for both series, including Tali’s issue in the Dark Horse “Mass Effect: Homeworlds” series and Dragon Age: Masked Empire, an upcoming novel to be released in July 2014.

Patrick lives in Edmonton with his wife Karin, his two Lego-and-video-game-obsessed sons, and (currently) nine rescued animals. In his spare time, he takes on unrealistic Lego-building projects, practices Kenpo Karate, and embarrasses himself in video games.

Review:

"This is, simply, a terrific novel. Fun and funny, witty without condescension, laugh out loud dialogue and deft, delicate characterization, driven by dangerous twists and an inexorable pace, Patrick Weekes' writing evokes the best of the best. If Donald Westlake had given Dortmunder a sword, if Douglas Adams had hitchhiked with a unicorn, Weekes has crafted that rare fantasy novel that both embraces and challenges the genre. I'll say it again in case you missed it the first time: this is, simply, a terrific damn novel." —Greg Rucka, New York Times bestselling author of Alpha, The Punisher, and Batman

“Patrick Weekes has written a fun, entertaining story that will have you smiling ear to ear while you read it. ... Go grab a copy and sit down for an action packed read. This is one treasure worth the effort.” —Fantasy-Faction.com
