Tools of a Thief shows how love and true friendship can overcome myriad difficulties.
Brazen young gnome girl Zizy seems fearless in her quest for freedom. She roams every new city and is prepared to use all the skills she has to survive—including magic and thieving.
Pressed to steal an important sand timer, Zizy recruits some new friends to help, but without telling them the real reason she’s there. That might be a problem, because someone wants to stop her, and destroy everything—and everyone—she loves. Will Zizy learn to trust her friends enough to reveal the truth and complete her mission, or will her deceit finally catch up with her?
Excellent research and well described scenarios almost make this book a pictorial adventure through ancient times. The author’s use of description is quite effective. There is enough to help readers place themselves in the story, but leaves some room for them to use their imaginations.
The characters are daring and full of energy. They are relentless in their quest for what they want.
Tools of a Thief is a well told fantasy with good structure. I surely traveled far and fast through a new timeslot of historical encounters. Rambo wields language and skill in the craft of writing into an easy and enjoyable novel.
