The Vengekeep Prophecies, by Brian Farrey

Summary:  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. 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 the gaol. Even Jaxter’s skill 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.  Now-like it or not-Jaxter Grimjinx will have to become the hero he was truly born to be.

One thought on “The Vengekeep Prophecies, by Brian Farrey

  1. I liked how everything fit together really well in this book to make a really believable story. The plot was exciting and the characters developed however this book did not make my top 5 only because I’ve read better. Maybe top ten but I don’t think that this is the newbery.
