The Vengekeep Prophecies Summary


The Vengekeep Prophecies by Brian Farrey

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, pulling off ingenious heists without ever leaving behind enough evidence to be convicted of a crime. 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 prison. Even Jaxter's talent 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 when the doomsday prophecy starts to come true, Jaxter is pretty sure a life in the gaol would be a better fate. Now, with the help of his new friend, Callie, Jaxter will have to face down flaming monsters, a bazaar of thieves, and a renegade sorcerer to become the hero he was truly born to be. Full of twists and turns, friendship and adventure, The Vengekeep Prophecies is the first in an unforgettable trilogy that takes everything you thought you knew about fantasy and spins it into pure magic.

The Vengekeep Prophecies Reviews


"In an excellent, self-contained adventure, 12-year-old Jaxter Grimjinx is anxious to prove himself at the family business: thievery. Farrey's rich fantasy hits the ground running and never lets up." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) "There couldn't be a more likeable family of thieves. This funny and serious series opener features action, twists and pleasingly original vocabulary, such as the swear 'zoc' (as in 'Zoc that') and the expression 'bangers,' which means, roughly, 'awesome.' Bangers!" -- Kirkus Reviews "Rollicking. Highly accessible. Jaxter is as heroic as the early Harry [Potter], but he has a loving family, which makes a big difference in his ability to trust his own instincts as he works for the community's greater good. Readers will hope for a continuation of the story." -- ALA Booklist "Humorous and inventive. I'm eager to read the second in the trilogy!" -- Joseph Delaney, bestselling author The Last Apprentice series Joseph Delaney, bestselling author The Last Apprentice series Joseph Delaney, bestselling author The Last Apprentice series Joseph Delaney, bestselling author The Last Apprentice series Jos "Enticing, lively, and wholly engrossing, this book takes us on a journey as twisty and treacherous as an old castle staircase--where danger lurks behind every bend, nothing is ever as it seems, and things can always, always get worse." -- Anne Ursu, Award-winning author of Breadcrumbs "A charming story that's at times laugh-out-loud funny but also a satisfying fantasy, offering a magical world that will strike a chord with fans of the Harry Potter series." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
