    1. I went into Self Made Scoundrel with ideas of what it would be about already in my head. Upon reading the blurb and beginning the book I realized it was not going to be a continuation of the first and I would have to wait even longer to find out what would become of Derk and Tavi. I was very excited for this book when I thought it would be an extension of the first and a bit disappointed when I found it was not. Let me not dwell on what I thought it would be and what it really was. . . This book [...]


    2. This is an absolutely delightful follow-up (prequel) to Thieves At Heart. It fills in more of this vivid fantasy world and paints in rogue Derk's background and motivations. What a wonderfully fascinating character! Tarwater's stories are just right for my tastes and once again, I can't wait to read more in this setting.


    3. Loved reading more about the characters from Thieves At Heart.An origin story without being boring.Fast read, good progression.Hope to read more from this author.


    4. it's rare that the second book of a trilogy takes place entirely before the first book, but in this case it worked. Actually I think it worked better book 1.


    5. There is something very appealing about the world of the Valley of Ten Crescents. There's also something very smart about making Derk's backstory (chronologically earlier than Tavera's story) the second book in the series. However, there isn't really sufficient worldbuilding here, presumably because the author felt that Book 1 and the prequel short did enough of the heavy lifting, and I feel like I would have little understanding of the setting beyond Generic Medievalish Land if I hadn't seen th [...]


    6. I got this book from and was sent to me by the author.When I started reading this book, I didn't know it was a prequel. Since it is the second book in the series, I ventured to read the first book in the series first. I must say I was not drawn into the story like in some other books. There was just too much open space left between events and I hesitated continuing with the second one. But in the end, I was glad I did. First thing that I noticed is that the style of writing improved immensely. [...]


    7. Tristan Tarwater has a very particular style. Her stories tend to be very character-driven and leisurely, with a lot of time spent inside the main character's head. Epic plots and action give way to contemplation and personal revelations, and relationships unfold and develop. When I read Thieves at Heart, I found myself a little frustrated with the lack of conflict in the book. I was happy to see that Self-Made Scoundrel comes out swinging with lots of palpable conflict, right out of the gate. D [...]
