Very rarely do I stop reading a book. This is unfortunately one of those times...and it saddens me. The book is written well enough, but it just didnt hold my interest. I really did not like the main character, which allowed me to become disconnected from the story. Eventually I just gave up. Perhaps if I could have seen it through to the end, I would have a better review; but such is not the case. My apologies.

I just finished the ebook and it was a good quick read. The story kept me interested. Only down fall was it was a little slow towards the end. Im interested in reading the second book to see what happens next.

If your into fantasy, this is a very good series! I amost gave it up at one point thinking it was another re-write of Robin Hood. If you think the same keep on reading!

Very well written story. So much tragedy in a young girl's start to life. Can't wait to read the rest of the series to see how her rough start affects the rest of her life

slow but an author needs to develop the character at first, so it's not surprising. I'll probably buy the 2nd just to see what happens...if nothing significant.......we'll see

All opinions are fully my own. ~ Judi E. Easley for Blue Cat Review My Review: C. Greenwood is one smart lady! She has hooked up with a fantastic artist for her cover art and kept the cover art consistent through all of the Dimmingwood books. Too many self-published authors don't have great cover art and don't stay consistent with the art or look of their books throughout a series or related series. The eye-catching art created by Michal Gauss has served her well in the marketplace and been worth whatever it cost. It has given her instant identification early on. Writing in first-person makes book one a bit of a diary type piece, but the drama of the story carries it through. I mean, Dad goes back to stall the Praetor's Fist so that you and Mom can escape. Then Mom goes back to stall them so you can escape. Then you're attacked and taken away. Raised in the woods. You literally stumble across a magic bow in a barn. All this time you are wandering around with a little flame of magic in you that you don't quite know how to use. And you're the only female in a male environment. There's good pacing throughout the story letting you take in the details you need to absorb. There's not a lot of scenery, but there's plenty of action and dialogue. The ending isn't exactly a cliffhanger, but it does lead you towards book two rather firmly. And there were enough loose ends in the book to make you want to find out what happened to this or that. Personally, I'd like to locate Hadrian. And I think Ilan would, too. I'd like to know more about the magical bow. And I'd like to know about Ilan's magic and see her learn to use it. It's frustrating to her as it is. And, of course, the words on her mother's brooch. Those need to be explained, too. The fact that the titles of this series all have the word "thieves" in them tells me that Ilan doesn't really ever cut her ties with the band in the woods. Is it still Rideon the Red Hand in charge through all this? And is Terran still with the thieves? Or does he ever get his chance to train as a priest? I was confused by the number of two-star reviews for this book. I'm not sure what these people were looking for when they read it. But it has an interesting storyline and plenty of action. It definitely sets itself up well to continue into the series the author has obligingly written for us. I feel it is well-deserving of the 4 stars I gave it. And I am looking forward to reading more of the series. The cover art is so appealing, I would get it to see more of that! I wish more authors paid such attention to this important detail. I wholeheartedly recommend this young-adult fantasy book to you and feel sure that you and I will both be reading the whole series in time.
