Format: Paperback
This fantasy comic book is the fifth in a series and I have only read the fourth before now – and reviewed it. It is entertaining and well-constructed. It is reminiscent of the French “bande dessinée” style in its artwork.

Parto f the plot deals with Captain Drake, a knight of the kingdom and member of the King’s Dragons, searching for three thieves. He visits a fortune-teller who explains his destiny – whether he believes it or not.

Meanwhile Dessa and her two companions put out to sea to find her twin brother, Jared, and meet various adventures on the way to Astaroth, the island where she believes Jared to have been taken.

The artwork is very good and I enjoyed the story and format. I’d recommend this to any comic lover who enjoys a simple adventure tale.

Enjoyable enough and I look forward to the next instalment.

The Three Thieves take to the open sea. Great addition to the series. My kids can't wait for the next book. They ask every other week if the next one is available yet...they'll be asking for another 12 months it seems.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of pirating adventure and fun! 18 May 2017
By Karissa Eckert - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is the 5th book in the Three Thieves series. There are seven books in this fantasy adventure middle grade graphic novel series. This was a fun volume in the series and I enjoyed it.

Dessa has recovered from her broken leg and is determined to hire a ship to get her to the Dark Island to find her brother. Meanwhile Captain Drake is at a fair and gets his fortune told. While he is dubious of the validity of the fortune, he does stumble upon a young boy that reminds him a lot of Dessa.

This was full of pirating fun and had a lot of adventure in it. I enjoyed the progress the story made and am excited to see what they find on the Dark Island in the next book.

The illustration is well done, colorful, and easy to follow.

Overall this was a great continuation of the Three Thieves series. I think the middle grade audience will enjoy these books more than adults will just because the plot is pretty simple and straightforward. I did enjoy the adventure and the colorful characters. I plan on continuing the series and recommend it to those who enjoy a straightforward fantasy adventure story.
