Book three of the acclaimed Three Thieves graphic novel series begins with Dessa, Topper and Fisk, still on the run from the Queen's Dragons, stopping to make camp for the night. While collecting firewood, Dessa happens upon a kidnapping and manages to boldly rescue the captive boy and bring him to safety. Once out of harm's way, the boy reveals that he is Paladin, the crown prince of Medoria! Upon Paladin's safe return to his kingdom, his father, King Victor the Fourth, decrees three days of celebration in tribute to the three heroes who have saved his precious only son. Dessa, Topper and Fisk know they are taking a risk by remaining in the castle for all that time, but how can they refuse the king? And to make things trickier still, is the charming prince falling for Dessa?

The cinematic artwork in this series offers a fully visual experience for young readers looking for an exciting tale of adventure, told in episodes. Dessa's derring-do is on display once again as she's seen swinging into action to save the prince's life (twice!), among other exploits. The fast pace alone is enough to keep young readers turning the pages. Creator Scott Chantler has also crafted a tremendously intriguing fantasy world in these books, fleshing out the intricacies a bit more with every installment. The layers and connections between characters promote critical thinking, while the masterful storytelling provides terrific opportunities for studying story components and literature.

The Three Thieves series continues to move along well in the third installment. I enjoyed how Dessa had moments to shine and as the cover shows -- save the prince! It's a well-written and drawn story, save for a few clunky moments.

Thoroughly enjoying the series as an adult - kids 8+ will love it for sure. Great pace, good characters, fun and action-packed story. No release date information available for book 4 yet, which I am eager to get my hands on!

Another winning chapter in the Three Thieves series, this one moving the action to a neighboring kingdom. Trying to hide while on the road, Becca stumbles onto a kidnapping and spontaneously tries to free the captive. When he turns out to be crown prince of Medoria, she and her companions are celebrated at the king's court as heroes. Fisk advises they duck out before the fanfare makes its way back to their pursuers, but Becca is enjoying the attention and comfort too much to cut the festivities short. Have they finally found an opportunity to rest and relax, or will their pasts catch up to them once more?

Dessa and her crew rescue Prince Paladin from a nest of thugs. Great graphic series for elementary grades and not sexist!
