The Theif Lord
It was a spectacular book! it was incredable and had many adventures and always kept you wondering what will happen next. Any person in the ages of 12 to 17 will enjoy this book. Their should be a movie based on it. It would be wonderful to see it.. but otherwise this book gave you a lot of imaginations! :)

Greatest Mystery Written
I have to personally say this was an excellent book. I would recommend this book from ages 12 and older. I say 12 and older because I bought the book when i was 11 (5th grade) and thought wow this is a huge book i will never finish it and put it away as a dust collector, but when you get to 12 and older you don't see it as quite as long but actually merely a good sized spectacualr mystery. This book has to be the best mystery I have every read, and it is very excting and it unfolds different mysteries at differet parts of the book rather than all at the end as a usual book would indicate its final revealing mystery. When I was reading this book I could hardly take myself from it. I bought it when I was younger but recently picked it up and wished i had read it sooner. This book has taken the place of best book for me. READ THE THEIF LORD! IT'S A GREAT MYSTERY,

Twist of fate and on the edge of your seat, the Thief Lord makes you never want to put it down. A great read for ages 8- adult!
