Description - Museum of Thieves: the Keepers 1 by Lian Tanner

'You're in the Museum now - and ANYTHING can happen!'

Goldie Roth lives in the city of Jewel, where impatience is a sin and boldness is a crime. But Goldie is both bold and impatient. She runs away to the mysterious Museum of Dunt, where she meets a boy named Toadspit and discovers dangerous secrets. A monstrous brizzlehound stalks the museum's corridors, and only a thief can find the way through its strange, shifting rooms.

Goldie and Toadspit have a talent for thieving. Which is just as well, because the treacherous Fugleman has his own plans for the museum, plans that threaten the lives of everyone Goldie loves. And it will take a very bold thief to stop him.

A thrilling tale of action and adventure.

Book Review: Museum of Thieves: the Keepers 1 by Lian Tanner - Reviewed by (18 May 2011)

my daughters book I picked up from the coffee table flicked thru and could literally not put down, while it may be listed as suitable for teens it is no way limited to them I actually enjoyed this book very much, so much infact I am happy to admit to reading it and happy to recommend it other parents and older readers alike.

From an accomplished author Lian Tanner creates a wonderful story based on the town of Jewel, a wonderful if not impatient child Goldie who is not unlike my own teenagers and wants to grow up and be free to experience life and all the richness it has to offer, but in Jewel this cannot happen until "Seperation Day" and that day didn't go as planned and so began a wonderful adventure for Goldie.

A Museum that is complex and holds hundreds of unseen secrets, a place that is so unexpected and unique and quite honestly nothing is what it seems. Then there are the Guardians with agenda's of their own, it is a story that I found just as satisying as any adult novel I could have picked for myself.

Part one in a three part series I am very keen to follow Goldie, Toadspit, Broo and the many other characters to see if Goldie indeed remains one to follow in the footsteps of her Aunty Praise, the adverture quite frankly has only just began, now for book two
