While I liked the thief stories, I loved the ones about Magdalene, the world's most powerful and laziest wizard, with a definite eye for the beefcake. All of these were a hoot. I have as much admiration for Magdalene as i do for Pratchett's Nanny Ogg, and that is high praide indeed! I was delighted to have new-to-me stories to read about her.
The "Ace doubles style" format was fun, too.
Terazin, on the other hand, is a clever thief--that is only the beginning. Her world lives. The supporting characters are real and in Huff's fashion, worth knowing.
This collection of short stories are page turners and leave you feverishly hopeing that the author writes many, many more about both.
The stories about Terazin are equally good but her nature is very different - there is quite a lot of the Rikki-Tiki-Tavi's "run and find out" attitude that sometimes leads her into difficulties.
I wish the publisher would make their mind about the name: many times the thief is called Terizan instead of Terazin. In fact it happens so often, that I was not sure about the correct form till the very end.
In whole, a very nice light book with lots of humor and very endearing heroines.
