The Vengekeep Prophecies

I have a funny story to tell you about this book. I actually didn’t pick up this book because of the description. I picked it up because of the illustrator. Brett Helequist. (Did I spell that right?) He illustrated the Series Of Unfortunate Events, as well as this book. And he is the reason I picked up this book. I said to myself, “Why, these illustrations look familiar! Aha! I know! That boy on the cover bares an uncanny resemblance to Klaus Baudelaire.” So I picked up the book. And I am so glad I did. What a great book.

Jaxter Grimjinx and his family are as thick as thieves. Probably because they are. Master thieves. The entire family is. They all can pick locks, pick pockets, and lie with the best of them. And they have never been caught. Everyone knows it’s them, but they have no proof. Thievery is a family thing. All the Grimjinxes do it. And that’s Jaxter Grimjinx’s problem.

Jaxter has almost no talents with thievery. He can’t pick a lock, pick a pocket, or lie to save his life. All he can do is break magical spells put on objects using potions he creates using different combos of 12 plants. Not exactly a good skill for a thief. Which is why Jaxter and his family get in big trouble when Jaxter and his father try to pull off Jaxter’s first robbery, and Jaxter messes it big time.

Fortunately, they are safe for the moment. The Twins (Lived 500 years ago, could see the future, wove tapestries depicting the future) have predicted that there will be a series of disasters, and only the Grimjinxes will be able to save everyone. But, it’s a fake, woven by Master Forger Ma Grimjinx. But the prophecy is coming true! Why? It was accidentally woven on fateskin, which makes whatever is woven on it comes true. Big Problems for the Grimjinxes. What are they going to do?! Well, I guess you’ll just have to read the book.
