Editorial Reviews

Review

Readers should start with the first volume to get the characters' back stories, but here's an animated, breathlessly paced adventure that's just hitting its stride.―Kirkus Reviews

Touches of zany slapstick balance nicely with Dessa's continued resolve to find her lost brother, and Chantler's inviting cartooning captures it all with special aplomb.―Booklist

The faces are simple, but emotive, and the detailed line work in the backgrounds and costumes helps considerably in giving the fantastic world a believable dimension. The book has gentle slapstick moments, which add to its appeal.―School Library Journal

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.
