I read this on the recommendation of a friend, having sat beside her during lunch and listened as she laughed, exclaimed and made other interesting noises while reading the entire series. I am sure I made several of the same noises while reading this one.
Kinda like three musketeers, but kinda like pirates the three main characters were loyal to the king, traveling around the country to see his laws were enforces and settling disputes between all people. But that was five years ago, before the Dukes decided they didn't like the King enforcing the laws and killed him. Now each Duke/ Duchess rules their land like a mini kingdom and the Greatcoats are hated by all.
Our main character holds the group together, he is the planner and leader-Until he finds a situation that can only end in their death and won't leave-keeping one young girl alive during a time when no laws are enforced (kinda like the movie 'the purge'). Thus start the plots that will continue through the rest of the series.

Surprisingly awesome. A fun read for sure. All the humor and witty dialogue of the "Lies of Locke Lamora" with the camaraderie of The Three Musketeers. A nice break from the wave of grimdark fantasy books out there, and it still even has substance to it without having to go to the dark places many other fantasy authors are exploring these days. Worthwhile.

This book is a swashbuckling, magical, and humorous adventure! Plot twists and turns were fun though sometimes predictable. I particularly like the diverse roles for females in this story!!
