What's the main purpose of the little group of outlaws? Why did they even join together in the first place? So yeah. It could have been totally epic. I'm truly disappointed. I'm probably not going to read the next book, nor finish the series. Jul 14, Lisa rated it did not like it Shelves: kindle-baby , , fantasy , bollocks , irritating-heroines , s-least-enjoyed.

Product description

Suckered in by the title and the fact that it was free, I'm now glad I hadn't paid for this as there really wasnt much magic in it for me. Orphaned as a young child by the Praetor's men as they cleanse the land of those with magic, Ilan soon finds herself in the keeping of a band of thieves after being rescued from abandonment by one of their number, Brig. Growing up among the gang, she's soon joined by Terrac, a young priest wannabe whom she saves during the course of one of their robberies. It' Suckered in by the title and the fact that it was free, I'm now glad I hadn't paid for this as there really wasnt much magic in it for me.

It's during the course of another, unsuccessful, robbery that Ilan meets another priest, who recognises the magic within her and offers to teach her, which she turns down for now. But seems to take up after Brig is killed, and she wanders off into the end of the book. For something that wants to be character driven this was a rather shallow and flimsy read.

I couldn't really get into the characters and their relationships as it skipped so quickly across the years, and couldnt get into the character of Ilan at all, who I found inconsistent and completely unlikeable. Starting off as Brig's adoring shadow, soon she's slavishly loyal to the outlaw's cruel leader, Rideon, instead, especially once he gives her the mother of all kickings. Thoughtless, spiteful and cold, she's soon being a snide little cow to Brig, for no apparent reason. When she's not being an ungrateful little wretch to him, she's being a complete cow to Terrac, who she seems to have saved mostly so she has someone at her side that she can always be a bitch to.

Until Brig is captured, when suddenly he means more to her than the world and she'll stop at nothing to get him back, including throwing Terrac under the bus. Having seemed to have picked up a magic bow during her attempted rescue of Brig, that's the only bit of the book that really intrigued me, but I'm not so bothered that I'll be reading any other entries to find out more.

Having lost both her parents in one night, the child survives with the help of a neighbor who then sends her off to the another land to be with other magicians, who can help her wield her own power. But as fate would have it, she lands up among a band of thieves and is adopted by Brig — a soft hearted one.

As she grows up among the band, she has to keep her magic a secret. She is soon joined by Terrac, a wannabe priest.

What is in store for her next? Ilan is a character that I had a love-hate connection with throughout. Though she is the only girl among the band of thieves, I think we should cut her some slack. But still, I could not understand her outbursts against Brig and Terrac and neither could I understand her fascination towards Rideon or the Red Hand. Terrac is a comparatively straightforward character that I liked.

But I liked Brig the most. The plot read more like a prequel to the actual story. It reminded me of the prequel novellas to the Throne of glass series. I am guessing that the actual story of Ilan going up against or along with Praetor is the actual storyline that we are going to see in the coming instalments.

The narration style of the author is however, simple and easy to get into.

Overall this makes for an interesting fast and easy read. Mar 08, Susie Toman rated it really liked it. There are a lot of reviewers who found this book to be less than fantastic, but as I read the book I found myself questioning what they expected it to be. Looking at the cover I expected an action packed book about some girl with a magic bow kicking butt.

The Wizard’s Mask Pathfinder Tale by Ed Greenwood

What I got was a story about a young teenage girl with magical potential growing up among a band of thieves and finding a magic bow that she's going to do some serious damage with in the next installment. The writing was what I would expect fro There are a lot of reviewers who found this book to be less than fantastic, but as I read the book I found myself questioning what they expected it to be.

The writing was what I would expect from a book written for young adults. It was cinematic without getting too complex. Honestly, the amount of depth reminded me of Crispin by Avi. Its a charming story that sets the main character up for bigger adventures. This is a coming of age story, and it shows. The main character is about 14, and she acts like a 14 year old.

She's moody and no matter how bad she feels about mouthing off to her father-figure she's confrontational with him time and again. I totally remember what that was like, and if I was still my 14 year old self I would have loved the heck out of this series.

I would have devoured the first book and been hungry for more. At my current age of 30 I understand that the complexity I typically desire from my fiction is best found elsewhere, and my interaction with this series probably ends here, but in a heart beat I'd recommend Magic of Thieves to readers in its intended age group. Good introductory novel into what seems so far to be a promising series.

Product details

It left me wanting so much more and the promises of the magic in upcoming volumes. The story is fast paced and it feels a lot shorter than it is. Ilan is an orphan girl who while running away lands in the care of thieves in the Dimmingwood. There she learns much and discovers a few things along the way. More important she grows into herself and leaves us all right when the this will become very interesting.

Feb 20, Kassi Waagen rated it did not like it Shelves: fantasy , adventure. The start of this book is really engaging. But it goes downhill from there. Very lackluster.

follow Makes sense that it was a free download. Will not finish the series. Oct 17, Julia rated it it was ok Shelves: fantasy-series , first-read-in I haven't read any other books in the series, but this seems more like a prequel. The main character knows that she has some sort of magic and her parents were killed because of it, but that's as far as the Magic plot goes. She doesn't learn about it, and most of the Thieves don't even know that she or anyone has magic. The setting reminds me of Robin Hood stories except that the outlaws aren't doing good things, they are just a gang in the forest. Jul 11, DoodlePanda rated it liked it Shelves: magic , fantasy.

I enjoyed this, and will be reading the next book in the series. I don't think it's the best piece of literature I have ever encountered, but fine for a quick entertaining read. And I want to know what will happen next : Note: When I started this book I was listening to the audible narration. But the narrator really didn't work for me and I decided I'd rather read it myself. Glad I did, as I enjoyed it a lot more after that! Mar 21, Adele rated it it was ok.
