Thief, Acolyte, Consort by James Robert Paige - Guest Blogger Book Review


A new city and a fresh start was what former thief Catt Zago was looking for, but what she found instead was Great Bakak, a city-state ruled ancient tradition and full of everyday magic. A place full of many gods and many people. A place where the King rules supreme, but the royal executioners seem to be calling the shots.

What Catt didn't expect was to meet a fascinating woman, a professor of magic at the local wizard university, doomed by a strange bit of luck to become the next King.

Catt wasn't planning on committing any crimes, this was supposed to be a safe place to start over, but now, could she really be contemplating stealing a King?

Jennifer's Review
Thief, Acolyte, Consort is a good book that I enjoyed reading.
Catt Zago(a thief) looks for a fresh start and a new city. She comes upon a new city where kings rule, but after a festival, she learns the horrible truth about what happens to them when their time is up. 
While at the festival, she meets a female professor of magic and gets her to sign up for a "lottery" to see who gets to become the next king. After a few tosses, Catt is horrified to find out that her new friend is the winner. 
Now that Catt knows how the kings are killed, she works secretly to save her friend from that terrible fate. Does she succeed or is her friend doomed to die? 
4 stars.
