Description

Sinister sorcery. Gallows humor. A queer romance so glorious it could be right out of fae legend itself. Master of One is a fantasy unlike any other.

Rags is a thief-an excellent one. He's stolen into nobles' coffers, picked soldiers' pockets, and even liberated a ring or two off the fingers of passersby. Until he's caught by the Queensguard and forced to find an ancient fae relic for a sadistic royal sorcerer.

But Rags could never have guessed this "relic" would actually be a fae himself-a distractingly handsome, annoyingly perfect, ancient fae prince called Shining Talon. Good thing Rags can think on his toes, because things just get stranger from there...

With the heist and intrigue of Six of Crows and the dark fairy tale feel of The Cruel Prince, this young adult fantasy debut will have readers rooting for a pair of reluctant heroes as they take on a world-ending fae prophecy, a malicious royal plot, and, most dangerously of all, their feelings for each other.

Review quote

"By the end, readers will be itching for more... A captivating and satisfying queer fantasy." -- Kirkus Reviews "Masters of character-driven stories, Jones and Bennett yet again deliver with a foul-mouthed thief, an enchanting fae prince, a headstrong woman, and an ex-Queensguard, to name only a few...Though the dreamy fae-mortal romance doesn't flourish until the latter half, fans of the authors will happily subsist on the story's consistent sharp-witted voice alone." -- Booklist Praise for Jaida Jones and Danielle Bennett: "Havemercy is an absolute charmer of a book: at once exciting, romantic, and funny." -- Peter S. Beagle, author of The Last Unicorn "These ladies write like a house on fire, delivering fantasy's most pleasant surprise since Temeraire himself took wing in 2006...An impressive debut." -- SFReviews.net "Delicious! The characters are unique, entrancing and believable: dinner-party guests you never want to see go home. I will gladly walk again in this city, now that I know my way around." -- Ellen Kushner, author of The Privilege of the Sword "A dazzling cast memorable characters! Havemercy is a wonderful debut from two talented new authors." -- Lynn Flewelling, author of Shadows Return "[The authors] vividly convey the testosterone-saturated world of fantasy fighter pilots in this fast-paced debut." -- Publishers Weekly

About Jaida Jones

Jaida Jones and Danielle Bennett are married co-authors (without wanting to divorce yet) who live in a haunted Brooklyn brownstone with 8 cats, two parents, and one grandparent. Danielle spent her wild youth in the PNW, learning to climb trees in the local cemetery and reading through every family dinner, school day, and summer vacation. She knows how to ride a horse but not how to drive a car. Jaida is a native New Yorker who spends too much time on Instagram and is currently passionate about tattoos, animal rescue, and slow fashion. Their published work includes four novels from the Volstovic Cycle, in addition to their many twitter rants on intersectional feminism and the NYC subway system. Master of One is their young adult debut, and you can find them at jonesandbennett.com.
