    " Great book. Adventure, mysteries and battles. Excitement, friendship and betrayal. Peter Nimble will make you cheer out loud and wish for a second book. I have found my recommendation for those who miss Harry Potter. "

    " Interesting story of a blind kid who turned from being a thief to becoming a king. Can put on the special need fiction list. "

    " This is fantasy for children...but it was pretty harsh and violent. The story left a lot to be desired, some things were never explained as if the author couldn't be bothered. It was very strange. I liked the title better than the book! "

    " i just dont know what age this would be ok for? the main character has his eyes pecked out and multiple fights with intense subject matter. but it was a light, easy read! good plot and nice touch of "fantasy" since the "magic" was just science. but idk if parents would approve. (although by looking at it youd never guess it was so gorey) i think the typical teenager wont be offset by the violence and just take it in stride and not let it take away from the story. "

    " Funny, whimsical, and very clever. It's interesting how visually pleasing this book is (In terms of the cover, the illustrations, the imagery, etc) considering this is a book about a blind boy. "

    " I was quite surprised by how much I enjoyed this YA book. The story was excellent. The characters were not bad. The big twist was pretty obvious, but other than that, it was a good one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joshua | 1/20/2013

    " Creative, fun, a little predictable, old-fashioned fantasy derring-do... I would have liked peg to be a bit stronger... Also middle is a bit slow, and end a bit brutally violent. Solid read. "

    " I'm giving it 5 stars based on the outstanding audio (minus the whistling s's) "
