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.
