“If you must steal from a wise man or a foolish one, steal from the wise. You’ll leave him with something he’ll value: a lesson.”
“Even weeks later, I heard rumors that I had ruined the Festival of the Twins. Which was complete rubbish. I was nowhere near the Festival grounds at the time. I was too busy escaping from a house fire. That I’d caused. Accidentally.”
“Fate is a lazy man’s excuse for avoiding curiosity.”
“Accusations are merely the envy of the unenlightened given form.”

SummaryAdd a Summary
It’s tough being the black sheep in a family OF black sheep, but such is the lot of Jaxter Grimjinx. It’s certainly an honor to be next in a long line of thieves, con artists, forgers, fleet-fingered pilferers, etc. It’s significantly less of an honor to be a clumsy klutz unable to pick even the simplest lock. But what he lacks in delicacy Jaxter more than makes up for with his love of herbs and spells, capable of undoing every protective magic they come across. Then it happens. In the village of Vengekeep it is customary to reveal once a year a tapestry that will predict the coming year. Produced hundreds of years ago by prophetic twins, Vengekeep relies on these prophecies. So imagine the horror of the townspeople when they discover that this year a horrific series of plagues and disasters will be visited upon them and their saviors will be those no good Grimjinxes. Of course they will be. The Grimjinxes found a way to fake the tapestry this year and they envision it as brilliant cover for their daring exploits. But that’s all before the stories on the fake tapestry start coming true. Suddenly, it’s up to the least reputable citizens in town to save everyone. And it’s up to Jaxter to ultimate undo the damage his family has wrought.
