Cover Launch: The Thousand Deaths of Ardor Benn by Tyler Whitesides

When a master thief is the only option, the world has gone terribly awry…

Ardor Benn is no ordinary thief. Rakish, ambitious, and master of wildly complex heists, he styles himself a Ruse Artist Extraordinaire.

When he’s hired for his most daring ruse yet, Ardor knows he’ll need more than quick wit and sleight of hand. Assembling a team of forgers, disguisers, schemers, and thieves, he sets out to steal from the most powerful king the realm has ever known.

But it soon becomes clear there’s more at stake than fame and glory – Ard and his team might just be the last hope for human civilization.

If you’re a fan of upbeat, fun, action-packed fantasy then this is undoubtedly the book for you. Tyler Whitesides’ fantasy debut, THE THOUSAND DEATHS OF ARDOR BENN (US | UK | AU), is the first in a brand new series, and publishes May 15th.

We can’t wait to introduce you to Ardor Benn in May. But for now, check out Ard being appropriately roguish in the awesome cover below. Artwork by Tommy Arnold. Design by Lauren Panepinto.
