I'm currently a college student and I aim to become a Game Animator. I write because I have ideas and I don't think I'm that bad at writing. I still live with my family but I love them so I don't care. Besides, this way I don't have to buy my own car because my college is nearby so that's my only expense (college). We have three lovely dogs who can also be quite a nuisance but I love them too. I have three older siblings, and my sister has already moved out.
Some of my favorite books are the Sevenwater's series by Juliet Marillier, Blackdog by K. V. Johansen (as well as her other books), and The Last Stormlord series by Glenda Larke. Though I have not read many poems, my favorite so far is Annabel Lee by Edgar Allen Poe.
Some of my favorite games are Child of Light, Transistor, Brothers: a Tale of Two Sons, and everything Monkey Island.
Les Friction, Disney villain songs, and Mumford and Sons are some of my favorite things to listen to, as well as game/movie soundtracks.

An exciting fantasy short story. The titular thief has been branded unlucky having a history of being caught whilst undertaking some klepto adventures. Drawn into a mission to retrieve a unique and crucial artefact, the thief must face shadowy foes and his own conflicted reasonings in order to prevail unscathed.
I haven’t read much fantasy so feel greatly under qualified when commenting on the genre. Having said that, the world built here is an imaginative one, full of mystery and intrigue. The supporting characters have great depth, sometimes overshadowing the thief himself, who remains somewhat elusive despite moments where a prickly humorous personality shines through.
The mythology of the universe is covered in detail within the story, hard to achieve in a piece of limited length but I think fans of the fantasy genre will enjoy this aspect. As this is out of my comfort zone I go for 3stars as a reflection of personal taste, however I will mark it up to 3.5stars for fantasy diehards.

A enjoyable and easy read in one sitting. The Unlucky Thief takes you on a journey of fantasy and intrigue but also has humor throughout. I found myself really liking the characters and rooting for them. Ms. Kozinski has a wonderful imagination that shines clearly throughout the story. I very much look forward to her next offering The Two Hearts Trilogy
