You can't convict what you can't confirm.
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. It's good enough to get his family out of the gaol, but with a firestorm, a flood, and a host of skeletal beasts among the dangers listed in the prophecy, Jaxter is pretty sure a life in the gaol would be a better fate.
Now—like it or not—Jaxter Grimjinx will have to becomethe hero he was truly born to be.

What People are Saying About This
“Enticing, lively, and wholly engrossing, this book takes us on a journey as twisty and treacherous as an old castle staircasewhere danger lurks behind every bend, nothing is ever as it seems, and things can always, always get worse.”
“Humorous and inventive. I’m eager to read the second in the trilogy!”
