Goldie Roth is a trained thief and a skilled liar. Along with her friend Toadspit, she's supposed to be one of the Keepers of the mysterious Museum of Dunt. But although she desperately wants to be a Keeper, she will not leave her sick parents to do so.
But when Toadspit's sister Bonnie is stolen, he and Goldie are forced to follow the child-stealers to the neighboring city of Spoke. Along the way, Toadspit too is captured, and Goldie is caught up in the Festival of Lies, where every word she says means something else and no one can be trusted. There, Goldie discovers some dangerous secrets—secrets that the child-stealers will kill to protect. She will need all her skills as a thief and a liar if she is to survive and save her friends.

Listener Opinions

    " Really liked this book! Accidentally started with the 2nd book and found out it was a series- hate it when that happens. But it still made sense and that's saying something. Just really creative ideas and likable characters. Love how it all twist together to make a great story. Unique magic- not your typical "wizard/magician" type. Can't wait to get a hold of the other books. "

    " As a sequal to Museum of Thieves, it is very good. It doesn't just continue on from the end of the previous book, it is a whole new adventure that happens to take place after the last one ended. I enjoyed reading this book but was disappointed in the ending. I felt as though Lian Tanner didn't know how to write a transition teaser. I have a compulsion to read all three books of a trilogy (most of the time) and will read the last book when it is released. I am not urgently awaiting the sequel to this book - which is sad for me when I really enjoyed reading all but the ending. "

    " Just as good as the first one. Great characters, interesting plot. This one ends on a cliff hanger, and I'm sad to have to wait until Oct... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Courtney Caldwell | 2/7/2014

    " Very very chilling, usually second books are the best part in a trilogy, absolutely love the new characters and the mystery in the new city of Spoke. Can't wait to finish the last book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 1/31/2014

    " Second volume of series, didn't read first and it still made sense. The Plot is pretty routine--a kidnapping leads the central characters to a neighboring city, where they make friends and engineer an escape from baddies with help from magical animals--but there are some unusually good ideas: I particularly liked the city's Festival of Lies, an annual event during which you can only speak untruths (unless you're touching an animal), and the training in being "invisible" in plain sight and other thief skills in which Goldie is trained. Interesting enough to read on in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rowan *call me Red* | 12/3/2013

    " A gripping story line that will pull you into the book. You will not want to stop reading and will find yourselves in the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Raejean | 11/28/2013

    " This book was as good as the first one; I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series. I was caught up in the action, even if the bad guys were a little predictable. I appreciate that through it all Goldie remained true to her goodness. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sydney | 10/19/2013

    " So good! I so wish I could attend a festival of lies! It would be so fun! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Polly | 6/30/2013

    " A fun and exciting follow-up to Museum of Thieves. I don't think I like this one quite as much (some of my favourite characters from the first one are barely in this one), but it definitely sustains my interest in following these characters and their world. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laleigh Ico | 6/2/2013

    " CONTINUATION OF MUSEUM OF THIEVES! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gwen | 5/30/2013

    " A worthy sequel to the Museum of Thieves. This is the second in a trillogy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tami Stackelhouse | 4/19/2013

    " This is a good sequel, though I thought it was awfully short. I gave it three stars because of the shortness and because what I liked most about the first book was the museum itself, and we were never really there in this book. =( "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth G. | 3/31/2013

    " Review to be published in School Library Journal. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jacqui | 2/13/2013

    " as this is the second in a trilogy it ends on somewhat of a cliffhanger but was a good read so I spent a couple of late nights trying to get to a quieter spot so I could put it down and didn't find so many of those so pretty exciting stuff "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Doug | 2/8/2013

    " Some good characters & situations. Moreover the main characters are kids (teenagers really) and relatively well written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl | 2/24/2012

    " Book two in the Book of the Keepers series. Goldie Roth now a trained thief and liar is trying to decide whether to be a Keeper to take care of her ill parents. Goldie's friend Toadspit's young sister is kidnapped forcing Goldie and Toadspit go after her. "
