    In some ways this book is less of an adventure tale than a slow unfolding disaster It's full of extremely good characters some of them likeable It features an original and deeply interesting world one that struggles with the aftermath of a series of cataclysmic goblin wars For me Kinch joins the pantheon of impossibly cha

The Blacktongue Thief

Set in a world of goblin wars stag sized battle ravens and assassins who kill with deadly tattoos Christopher Buehlman's The Blacktongue Thief begins a 'dazzling' Robin Hobb fantasy adventure unlike any other Kinch Na Shannack owes the Takers Guild a small fortune for his education as a thief which includes but is not The Blacktongue MOBI #224 limited to lock pi I ve struggled with how to start this review of Christopher Buehlman s The Blacktongue Thief because I want to give it the recognition it deserves So I ll just go with this it s damn fine reading I loved itKinch Na Shannack is a thief in training with a couple of tricks up his sleeve which might not matter much considering how far behind he is in student loans And the debtors just happen to be the most powerful far reaching organization in the world But Kinch has a chance to dig his way out and finds himself in the midst of a continent spanning mission where he crosses paths with witches warriors sky beasts polymorphing assassins giant monsters of land sea and air and well saying too much will ruin the surprises of which there are many And I mean many This novel is page turning feast of chaos and adventure that I didn t want to endWhat held my attention from the first page to the last was how smooth the reading experience felt while blending elements of brisk pacing loads of snark punchy dialogue stylized characters and unrelenting scenes of gaga mayhem What a fabulous kingdom the mind is and you the emperor of all of it You can bed the duke s wife and have the duke strangled in your mind A crippled man can think himself a dancer and an idiot can fool himself wise Some highlighted passages caused me to laugh pushed the story forward and offered nuggets of uotable wisdom or some form of innovation all within a sentence or twoKinch s narrative voice finds a balance between wise assery and wisdom using snappy and succinct dialogue to get his messages delivered Big twists drop with sudden shots to the gut Yet the grim severity of events are usually offset by Kinch s gallows humor materializing as inside jokes between narrator and reader The smell of old whale fat hung about the ship like perfume in a whore s drapes But not all is adventure mystery comedy and grim tidings There s also a healthy dose of poetry and songs scattered throughout the story and they enrich the ever expanding environment with music lore humor and other intangibles Since the bulk of the story is a road trip each stop along the way feels fresh with promise The continent itself appears to be loosely based on Western Europe with comparable languages and cultural swagger I must call attention to a two page chapter that tells the story of a fallen city It somehow built up my sense of wonder then immediately flushed my emotions down a sinkhole Two pages was all it took I m singling it out because not only can it serve as a standalone story on its own but I also think it s a good microcosm of what this book can do a reader While this passage doesn t uite include the humor that the rest of the book offers it shows me how Buehlman can claw you in when he wants to and drag your empathy wherever he wants it to go Only the strong the rich and the dying think truth is a necessity the rest of us know it for a luxury I didn t find much fault in this story There s an inherent ability a character has that could be viewed as a plot device but its originality and the balance of its conseuences even out the score Regardless of any nitpicks Kinch uickly became one of my favorite first person characters in as long as I can remember and its supporting cast of deep rich characters combined with Buehlman s creativity and wit brought this exciting book to life I give The Blacktongue Thief my highest recommendation 97 10 Publishing May 2021 with Tor Books
