Written by Jimmy Cajoleas

A dark and magical tale with an orphan searching for home, whatever that may be. Gruff, the king of bandits, graciously takes in orphaned Goldeline, and teaches her the way of the bandits. Although Goldie has second thoughts about how the bandits work, she loves Gruff for saving her, and wants to be a “real” bandit one day. One of Goldie’s bandit adventures brings a surprise friend into her life, and nothing will be the same. Ever. Again. Finding Tommy leads to further adventures, and the new adventures are more dangerous than those with the bandits have ever been. A great keep-you-on-your-toes read, for those who enjoy fractured/mixed-up fairy tales!
