Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As an acrobat in a traveling circus, 14-year-old orphan Dessa Redd flies through the air with ease. Still, she is weighed down by troubling memories. But when her ragtag circus troupe pulls into the city of Kingsbridge, Dessa feels a tickle of hope. Maybe here in the royal city she will finally find her twin brother — or the mysterious man who snatched him away when they were just children. Meanwhile, Topper, the circus juggler, recruits Dessa and the circus strongman, Fisk, for the job of robbing the royal treasury. Hungry and desperate, both agree, setting off a series of adventures that will take the three thieves from one end of the world to the other in search of Dessa's long-lost brother. Scott Chantler's fast-paced story will engage readers while his bold-lined art with richly detailed backgrounds is a tribute to classic comic books.

Review:

"Dessa, a 14-year-old acrobat, struggles with her values as they are compromised by the pressure of her traveling circus peers. Hugo, her mean and domineering master, refuses to pay anyone after a show, and troupe members are forced to find their own means to get money and food. Topper, a sky-blue eel-like creature destined to be the world's greatest thief, pickpockets peasants for money to buy food, but recruits Dessa and Fisk the strong man to help break into the queen's treasury using a map he found. Things don't go well, and the struggle to find money and nourishment quickly turns into an escape for survival and many unanswered questions. Told in three acts, the story uses medieval slang sporadically without being overbearing. Chantler effectively presents action and adventure, with atmospheric coloring to convey the mood. It's an entertaining and action packed new fantasy-adventure series that will appeal to fans of the genre. Ages 8 — 12. (Aug.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
