Book Jacket Summary
In this third title of the cinematic Three Thieves graphic novel series, Dessa, Topper and Fisk are still running from the Queen's Dragons and trying to find Dessa's missing twin brother. But when Dessa inadvertently rescues a prince -- putting kingdoms at stake and love on the line -- the adventure quickly becomes a royal mess!

My Thoughts
 Dessa, Fisk, and Topper always seem to get into trouble, even when doing good. This time they rescue Prince Paladin of Medoria and get the royal treatment but things are not always what they seem. The King wants Paladin to secure the kingdom with an arranged marriage but Paladin has already decided he is in love with Dessa. It is a sweet romance because Paladin really changes after he meets Dessa and wants to be a better person and prince. Plus he saves her from his blood thirsty father. 
The story continues on the same route of Dessa searching for her missing brother and finds an ally in Prince Paladin. I have a feeling that this will come in handy in future installments. Paladin has a vast library to research the clues that Dessa has collected.  Fisk and Topper are in the background and I would love to learn a bit more about them! Especially Topper! I really like the fantasy world that Chantler has created and the characters that make up each land. 
The three are on the run again and I cannot wait for their adventures to continue. I would hand this one over to reluctant readers because of the fast pacing and exciting chase scenes.
