great series of books really. i like the characters and story. most 'action' happens 'off screen' which is ok but it gets more action packed later in the books. the only reason I kept it to 4 stars is it sometimes feels like a D&D story being told. a lot of side bar stories and sometimes more like a series of short stories and novellas than three coherent stories. it's not a problem at all and especially in this all-in-one format. good writting and great themes over a classic fantasy background.

<i>Thieves at Heart</i> – Book 1

Welcome to the world of the Valley of the Ten Crescents, a fantasy world similar to, but not quite the same as our own world in some past time. In this book Tristan J. Tarwater tells the story of a little orphaned half-elf girl who is adopted by a man who is, by his own admission, an accomplished thief and who goes to some trouble to train her in the arts of thievery as well.

This is basically the story of how Tavera, the little elf girl grows up. The story is a series of scenes from the girl’s life. Tavera occasionally remembers a scene from earlier in her life, but there aren’t a lot of flashbacks to earlier times, and the main scenes progress in chronological order, although there are some years skipped between some of them.

Derk and Tavi are loosely associated with a group of thieves – something like a Thieves Guild – that calls itself ‘The Cup of Cream’. They consider themselves the best of the best of the thieves, and Derk actively trains Tavi so that she will one day qualify for full membership in this group.

One interesting facet of life in the Valley of the Ten Crescents is their religion. They apparently worship a moon goddess of some sort. There is a temple to this goddess in every city, and Tavi and Derk occasionally go to prayers there without feeling any discomfort or embarrassment about it, although once Tavi wonders why there are laws against stealing since the goddess herself sanctioned thievery by stealing light from her brother, the sun.

A lot is hinted at around the edges of Tavi and Derk’s life together that is not fully explained. All in all, an interesting story.

I first received a copy of this book in exchange for a review.

Watching. Seeing. Understanding. Articulating.your images uniquely and memorably. Teaching people the joy of learning the truth about themselves and others. It is some of what real writers do. It is what you are doing.The cream in your cup rises to the surface just as it used to do in the old glass milk bottles. It is a good thing to have books to read. Sometimes, rarely, I watch T. V. but it is like fast food, so processed it has become pablum. A pity not to use our imaginations. Thank you for giving me the nudge. I envy your gift.Use it well. Avoid the easy path and challenge yourself as well as your readers. Namaste'

I received a copy of this series through Story Cartel in return for an unbiased review.

I read the first novel in this series a few years ago and loved it, I am glad I finally got around to reading the whole series. At first I found the way the author writes a bit hard to follow, jumps in time without pages breaks, but I then really enjoyed how it made the story flow. By Cutting out unnecessary filler it helped to keep the readers attention and make the story fluid.

The world these stories are created in is wonderful and fresh, it has a very unique feel and is brilliantly constructed. There are defiantly some plot lines and characters that just disappear and its sad to not have closure on them. It is very easy to fall in love with both Tavi and Derk, two people who have been through hardship and fight to rise above it.

I loved the way the author describes the surroundings, easily summoning images of the world around and did a wonderful job in describing characters emotions so much that you feel it right along with them. There is very little negative to say about these novels, the small problems are made up by the imaginative world constructed.

I found this series of books to be a nice change from what is now being published and rated highly. I was given a copy of this series in exchange for an honest review. The characters are so well done, that I found myself associating with some of the main characters. The third book of the series does seem to be distant from the first two. Disappointed a little bit, but it is even a great read all by itself. Tristan is a great and up and coming author. If I could give her advice, slow down when winding up a series so they link together well. Well done !!

I wrote a review for this book a couple of weeks ago but it never posted so I'm trying again. Briefly this time.
I enjoyed this book but I can no longer remember all the details of my first review. It did take a while to read. There's several books here so it will keep you occupied for a few days.
I would have liked to know what Tavera's origins actually were. That might be explained in another book.
I'd read more from this writer.
