“Whitesides sticks the landing in his conclusion to the Kingdom of Grit trilogy” (Publishers Weekly).
The final book in an action-packed epic fantasy series set in a world with dragon-fueled magic where master con artist Ardor Benn takes a job to steal a living dragon.
Ardor Benn has taken his lies to a new level, infiltrating high society so he can steal a priceless resource. But now that he’s on the inside, he finds himself poring through ancient texts, searching for answers to his deepest questions. He discovers something is coming. Something world-ending.
Now, an old enemy is extorting him for one last job. Steal a live dragon. He doesn’t know how, and he doesn’t know why. But he’s got a feeling that it’s a job he has to take. Only problem is, Ard’s running short on time and shorter on lies. And his personal ambitions are alienating all of his allies.
With no one else to rely on, he’ll have to trust the one person nobody else does: himself.

Praise

"Whitesides sticks the landing in his conclusion to the Kingdom of Grit trilogy … Whitesides excels at balancing detailed worldbuilding and page-turning plot, sprinkling in plenty of humor along the way. This is a worthy finale to the series, and fans will be eager to see what he does next."

“It’s a fun read with plenty of adventure, danger, and clever solutions to problems; ultimately a satisfying, if surprisingly tidy, end to the career of a self-proclaimed legendary criminal.”
