quote 2018-07-09 05:24
“I don’t know why they can’t release me today,” Tony grumbled. “I’m fine.”

“I know, right?” Dex held back a smile. “I mean, I don’t understand how that bullet didn’t bounce off you, what with you being indestructible and all.”

Thick As Thieves - Megan Whalen Turner

MWT is a master of sleight-of-hand. Storytelling skills to the level that you'll follow her dubiously likable characters through endless bewildering micro adventures until everything settles into clarity with the grand reveal at the end. Great interiority, great insight into the characters' minds and perspectives, with moderate unreliability. This book looks at slavery (in an ancient world context), power and arrogance, as well as friendship. It probably suffers a bit because it's been long enough since I read the first books in that world that I sort of remember loving them, but don't remember enough about the world, the characters and the politics - or rather, my emotional engagement is a bit distant, so the world feels detailed and solid, but not like a return to a beloved story. The use of 'translated' myths in the narrative was smart but a bit pace-slowing. 14yo me would have been more impressed, but she was a geek. Clever, mature fantasy

Thick & Thin (THIRDS #8) by Charlie Cochet
Thick & Thin - Charlie Cochet
Thick and Thin is a novella that gives the reader some necessary down-time after the emotional upheaval of Smoke and Mirrors. It also gives Destructive Delta the opportunity to catch up with what is going on with Dex and Sloane. Yes, they're unhappy at the secrets being kept and their own fears, but will it be enough to split them up permanently, or will they be able to work it out?
 
I needed this book, a touch of normality after the previous book! I still found my emotions in play though as the rest of the team learned about what had gone on that they had no idea about. However, I am now excited to see where it will lead. Very well written, as per the whole series, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt my reading flow. Definitely recommended by me.

Ah! I'm so mad! But in a good way...

 

I waited seven years for this book and then read it in about a day and now I just have to wait some more for the sixth book.

 

Also the book was really good. Like, yes, it's a standalone story (-ish), but I still got really invested in it and it was almost as good a read as the others and it brought up a lot of things I've had questions about this whole time. I have to switch to the read more now because I want to be more specific than this. Spoilers are free game following the cut.
