Title: Master of One
Authors: Dani Bennett and Jaida Jones
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
Publishing Date: November 10, 2020
Sinister sorcery. Gallows humor. A queer romance so glorious it could be right out of fae legend itself. Master of One is a fantasy unlike any other.
Rags is a thief—an excellent one. He’s stolen into noble’’s coffers, picked soldier’s pockets, and even liberated a ring or two off the fingers of passersby. Until he’s caught by the Queensguard and forced to find an ancient fae relic for a sadistic royal sorcerer.
But Rags could never have guessed this “relic” would actually be a fae himself—a distractingly handsome, annoyingly perfect, ancient fae prince called Shining Talon. Good thing Rags can think on his toes, because things just get stranger from there…
With the heist and intrigue of Six of Crows and the dark fairy tale feel of The Cruel Prince, this young adult fantasy debut will have readers rooting for a pair of reluctant heroes as they take on a world-ending fae prophecy, a malicious royal plot, and, most dangerously of all, their feelings for each other.
“Lord Faolan believes in the importance of hope”, Morien said.
“And you?” Rags asked.
“Like any drug, it has its uses,” Morien replied. “And like any drug, too much is fatal.”
You are a fan of stories with heists like Six of Crows or Into the Crooked Place? Then, why Master of One is not on your wishlist??? Because this book should be read by everybody. It has everything. Adventure, sorcerers, death, dark secrets, fae, twists and LGBTQ.
It is a well-written unique story with complex characters. Being narrated by 3 POVs, we have the opportunity to understand all three MC, to find about their past, their enemies and their secrets. It is a cruel world with an interesting and dark magic. And I’m not going to talk about that illegal ending!
All in all, I really enjoyed Master of One and I can’t wait to read the next book! Thank you so much TBR and Beyond, Jaida Jones and Danielle Bennett for this amazing adventure!
