“All the pieces finally fall into place in this action-packed finale to the Three Thieves graphic novel series. Now that Dessa has learned the truth about her past, she agrees to form an alliance with the badly injured Captain Drake against Greyfalcon. The pair travel together to the royal city to rescue Dessa’s twin brother, Jared, from Greyfalcon’s evil clutches and put Jared in his rightful place on the throne. But their plans go awry when they arrive to find Jared already on the throne! And it’s nowhere near the joyful reunion one might expect — instead, Dessa is captured and thrown into the dungeon! It’s clear her brother is in no position to come to her aid, so she needs to find another way out. The three thieves have pulled off a number of tricky escapes together, but this time Dessa’s on her own … Or is she?”
This was a well done conclusion to The Three Thieves series. I really enjoyed how everything wrapped up.
It was nice to see Dessa and Captain Drake coming to an alliance of sorts. There are a lot of little twists and turns that make the story interesting.
As mentioned in previous reviews for this series…I think this is a series that middle grade/YA readers will enjoy more than adults. The story is pretty straight-forward and, although I enjoyed it, I personally enjoy a little more complexity.
The illustration is typical cartoon style. It is easy to follow and full color which is nice.
Overall this was a good conclusion to this middle grade adventure fantasy series. I enjoyed the series as a whole and would recommend to middle grade readers who are looking for a good adventure fantasy.
