Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
My husband, daughter (8-year-old), and I really enjoyed this second Three Thieves story. In it, a crooked innkeeper, his suffering wife, some smugglers, the queen's dragons, our heroes, and a lousy magician all converge on an inn during the worst storm of the year. It's fun to see how they maneuver into getting what they want from some while trying to avoid getting caught by others. The story was funny, had great twists and turns and a nice resolution. I thought it the best of the first three books. (The fourth book had not come out yet when I wrote this.) It only advanced the "looking for kidnapped brother" storyline a tiny bit, so if you are impatient for that you might be disappointed. It is evident by this book, that there will be many adventures before that story arc plays out. However, if you enjoy going along for the ride, you will find this a satisfying story. The book is short. I finished it in about 45 minutes. Full color illustrations.
