Finally, a book where all the queer characters get a happy ending! This book has everything: thieves, highwaymen, pirates, alchemy, a kick-butt heroine, gorgeous boys AND it was also sassy, hilarious and fast moving! Monty is such an amazing flawed protagonist, who messes up again and again (and again!) but you root for him anyway. It's light, it's silly and you won't stop laughing from start to finish.
