In a province where magic is forbidden and its possessors are murdered by the cruel Praetor, young Ilan, born with the powerful gift of her ancestors, has only one hope for survival. Concealment. In the shadow of Dimmingwood, she finds temporary protection with a band of forest brigands led by the infamous outlaw Rideon the Red Hand. But as Ilan matures, learns the skills of survival, and struggles to master the inherent magic of her dying race, danger is always close behind. When old enemies reappear and new friendships lead to betrayal, will her discovery of an enchanted bow prove to be Ilan's final salvation or her ultimate downfall? * * * * * When I was small, my mother taught me about the magickless--evil men who hunted our kind to destroy us. They came from across the water to steal the lands of our ancestors. Pretending to want peace, they enslaved us and sought to extinguish what they couldn't possess, the one thing their harsh laws could never control. Our ancient powers. One day, my mother warned me, violence would shatter the safety of our home, and when that day came, we must fight. And we must win.* * * * *Also in the LEGENDS OF DIMMINGWOOD series:Betrayal of Thieves ~ Book II Circle of Thieves ~ Book III (Coming Spring 2013)Redemption of Thieves ~ Book IV (Coming Spring 2013)_______________________________________________To be notified of new releases in this series, sign up here: tinyurl.com/3dbegmw Simply copy and paste the url into your address bar.

4.0 Review: Not Bad
Not a review. Just a remark here. This was a Kindle freebie, and for once, a freebie was pretty GOOD. I recommend this to anyone looking for a quick, epic fantasy read. It wasn't perfect. There were a few things that never got clarified, like Brig's family. But over all, I enjoyed this.

1.5 Magic of Thieves Review
This book started out with some promise, but ended up being pretty disappointing by the end. There was hardly any magic, and not a ton of thieving, so I'm not really sure what the title is all about. Plus, the writing style had a strange tone to it. There was something about it that just didn't sit ...

It ...
