The Three Thieves series continues to move along well in the third installment. I enjoyed how Dessa had moments to shine and as the cover shows -- save the prince! It's a well-written and drawn story, save for a few clunky moments.

Thoroughly enjoying the series as an adult - kids 8+ will love it for sure. Great pace, good characters, fun and action-packed story. No release date information available for book 4 yet, which I am eager to get my hands on!

Another winning chapter in the Three Thieves series, this one moving the action to a neighboring kingdom. Trying to hide while on the road, Becca stumbles onto a kidnapping and spontaneously tries to free the captive. When he turns out to be crown prince of Medoria, she and her companions are celebrated at the king's court as heroes. Fisk advises they duck out before the fanfare makes its way back to their pursuers, but Becca is enjoying the attention and comfort too much to cut the festivities short. Have they finally found an opportunity to rest and relax, or will their pasts catch up to them once more?

Dessa and her crew rescue Prince Paladin from a nest of thugs. Great graphic series for elementary grades and not sexist!
