An Entertaining Read

The Thieves Guild by Jeff Crook details the rise and fall of a great crime network and how the most skilled of thieves survive through the adversity. In the huge metropolis of Palanthas, Cael Ironstaff, son of the revered Tanis Half-Elven, takes up residency as a cutpurse ready to compete for the great treasures of an ancient city. Yet his overwhelming confidence, marvelous skill, and dashing charm can only take him so far... I liked The Thieves Guild because it gave me an intricate and pleasing image of Palanthas, my favorite city in the world of Dragonlance. Crook describes the social structure and customs in a way as not to bore the reader and in fact, moves the plot very quickly filling it with exciting and meaningful action. The first and final chapters are each slightly separated from the rest of the book and provide a nice acclimation to the plot and closure. The Thieves Guild is a solid fantasy book with all the major elements of such: fast action, involved plot, and a special characteristic uniqueness marking the work as Crook's own. Like most books of the genre, the middle portion of the plot dips slightly into being boring but this ends quickly. I recommend The Thieves Guild to anyone interested in good, solid, fantasy, especially those keen to the Dragonlance universe.

The Thieves' Guild Dragonlance

This book was ++++ I couldn't set it down once I'd started it. A definite look into the Thieves' Guild. The author has left it open for a sequel, I can only hope that they follow up on this story line. The Crossroads series is definetly one of the better Dragonlance series.

Exciting, intriguing novel

This is the story of Cael Ironstaff, a freelance thief, who stumbles into the shadowy world of the thieves' guild. Without ruining too much, this story of thievery and betrayal is top notch and shouldn't be passed over. Like volume one of the Crossroad's Series, volume two doesn't fail to impress. Highly Recommened.

Who's yer daddy?

Noooooooo! Tanis' son? Who is his mother? When did this happen?Did I miss a book somewhere?Be that as it may, this is an excellentbook. You really get the feel for Palanthas, see its sights, smell itssmells. The characters, even Cael, are fantastic, and the descriptionsare extraordinary. The thieves' test in the sewers of Palanthas wasgreat...! The book is a little slow going at first, but once Cael getscaptured by the guild, it never stops. I can't wait for thesequel. There is going to be a sequel?
