This book has been my favorite of the series so far, for two reasons. The first, because the introduction of Rosamund, even if she does seem flippant at times, breaks up the monotony of maleness between Michael and Fisk. Plus, I love that Rosamund proves the boys wrong about what they speculate will happen if she's left to her own devices - which made me realize just how dependent I am on Michael and Fisk's perceptions in order to even see this world. The second reason, the mystery in a book geared for kids is difficult enough to give adults a hard time figuring everything out. One of the things I love about Bell's writing is her ability to lead readers down a stereotypical fantasy/mystery road that makes us expect a cliche ending, only to find a twist or two thrown in the works that deviates the plot from what we expect. That's why I look forward to reading the next book in this series.

Fisk and Michael encounter Lady Rosamund in their journeys. She's searching for the man she loves, but her Uncle (Michael's father) refuses to allow her to marry. Hopelessly in love with her himself, Michael agrees to help her find Rudy - a traveling player. Just as they're arriving into the town where their information leads them to believe Rudy will be staying, they come across a fire. When they arrive and give word of the fire, they're taken back out into the night, where they must show the sheriff and his men the exact location. Wreckers have been making havoc on the ships and therefore the town. No one knows who's behind the deeds, but if they don't stop them the town will go to ruins. Michael wants to investigate the matter further. When Rosamund finds her love, trouble follows her. When the bounty hunter attempting to take her back ends up murdered, the sheriff refuses to let Michael, Fisk, Rosamund, and the players leave town, as they're witnesses to the wrecking and the murder. Resigned, Michael and Fisk join the players in their acts. There's something not right amongst the players as accidents keep happening. Are they really accidents or is someone looking to cause trouble? Could these incidents be related to the wreckers, or does someone just have a grudge against Michael? This is the third book in the KNIGHT AND ROGUE series about two teen boys. Michael and Fisk seem like an unlikely pair, but their partnership works, as Michael tends to be softhearted, which often leads him into trouble, and Fisk's streetwise skills save the boys often. Their adventures always contain action, danger, and the strength of brotherhood.
