“A novel that celebrates life and love the way only the best fantasy tales can.” -Kirkus Reviews
Sixteen-year-old Tessa Skye, a locksmith’s apprentice, loves to shapeshift into a sparrow using a windrider—a forbidden magical amulet. During one of her outings, she accidentally reveals herself to the Conjurer Lord Fellstone. The tyrant sends his knights after her, resulting in the murder of her father. Driven to reverse his fate, Tessa and her two companions embark on a perilous quest seeking love, revenge, and a cure for death.
"Those who enjoyed Harry Potter but who seek a feisty, determined female protagonist will find much to appreciate in the complexity and atmosphere of Dreadmarrow Thief." -Midwest Book Review
This book is a fun, witty, clever, and adventure-filled fantasy novel. Tessa Sky is a courageous, clever, and determined character that I found really easy to like. She is loyal, caring, and feisty and her relationships to her family and friends are well-built and interesting. I also loved that she is a strong female character that took charge of her own story. I love fantasy novels, and this one was a really fun adventure to undertake with unique and fun characters. I was also impressed by the magic system of the story as it held within it a lot of mystery and intrigue. I was quickly engaged within the story and couldn't put it down. If you like epic fantasy adventures with plenty of magic and strong characters, then this is a must read.
