The Vengekeep Prophecies
Farrey, Brian. The Vengekeep Prophecies. Harper Collins, 2012.
Jaxter Grimjinx comes from a long line of thieves and swindlers, but he's too clumsy to be of much help in his family's heists. That is, until a prophetic tapestry depicts his family as the saviors of their town and they realize that Jaxter is the only one who can truly save the day. Jaxter embarks on a quest to obtain the ingredients to destory the tapestry (and thus the prophecy), but will he be able to return in time to save his family?
This was a fast-paced and enjoyable read that I could see being very popular with fans of Harry Potter. I hope there will be more from this author.
