No Heart For A Thief sneaked in at the last minute and stole its way into my favorite reads of 2022. I have been waiting for a book to show up and sweep me off my feet for quite some time and James Lloyd Dulin delivered on that perfectly. This is the kind of book that will remind you why you love fantasy in the first place.
This is a distinguished debut that I found completely engrossing. As a work of fantasy, it is a very promising start to a series that has a lot of potential. I enjoyed the structure with the two timelines. Kaylo’s journey, both in the past and present, is one I want to continue. No Heart for a Thief is a meditative, spiritual journey that will make you stop to think and question – an allegory for our times.
