Museum of Thieves - The Keepers (Lian Tanner)

Museum of Thieves - The Keepers
Lian Tanner

Blurb: '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.

  1. The museum shifts and holds unwanted items from the cities past including war and plagues that threaten to break free from their storage rooms. Perhaps my favorite character is a hound who sometimes is a small dog and other times a monstrous beast. He both befriends Goldie and terrifies her and its not his fault since his transformation is beyond his control, more attuned to the circumstances they find themselves in. With the quirky cast of fellow keepers of the museum and the towns people, this is a fun, eclectic read.
