From her earliest days, Amanda Jean Surowitz has been a gypsy in spirit. A jack of all trades...a renaissance woman. Her first career choice was not to be a writer, but a scientist. She was first inspired after reading some of her brother's stories to write one of her own, even though she was just in middle school. Two years later she had her first finished book and had the desire to make writing her life. Now a full-time student with the Savannah College of Art and Design, Amanda divides her time between Georgia and Virginia. She lives with her family, a little Celtic gnome that inhabits her work space, some fairies and a few dragons.*

Wonderful story involving a female thief tricking and scamming her way through a complex situation. The pace of the writing here is perfect, and i found myself gripped with the scene as our hapless thief leaves the church and suddenly finds herself having to fight for her life.
I also loved the finale, how her morals where questioned and the witty replies she gave.
This is well worth your time and anyone seeking a short sharp injection of action and adventure should give this a read now.
