"A charming story that's at times laugh-out-loud funny but also a satisfying fantasy, offering a magical world that will strike a chord with fans of the Harry Potter series."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's BooksReseña del editor:
Jaxter Grimjinx is a born thief. At least, he's supposed to be. For generations, the Grimjinx clan has produced the swiftest, cleverest thieves in Vengekeep, pulling off ingenious heists without ever leaving behind enough evidence to be convicted of a crime. The problem is, Jaxter is clumsy. So clumsy that in his first solo heist, he sets the Castellan's house on fire and lands his family in prison. Even Jaxter's talent for breaking magical locks can't get them out of this bind. Then a suspiciously convenient prophecy emerges, naming the Grimjinx clan as the soon-to-be heroes of Vengekeep. It's good enough to get his family out of the gaol, but when the doomsday prophecy starts to come true, Jaxter is pretty sure a life in the gaol would be a better fate. Now, with the help of his new friend, Callie, Jaxter will have to face down flaming monsters, a bazaar of thieves, and a renegade sorcerer to become the hero he was truly born to be. Full of twists and turns, friendship and adventure, The Vengekeep Prophecies is the first in an unforgettable trilogy that takes everything you thought you knew about fantasy and spins it into pure magic.
