Mercedes Lackey's triumphant return to the best-selling world of Valdemar, Take a Thief reveals the untold story of Skif--a popular character from Lackey's first published novel, Arrows of the Queen.

Skif was an orphan who would have died from malnutrition and exposure if he had never met Deke the pickpocket.  By the time he was twelve, Skif was an accomplished cat burglar.  But it wasn't until he decided to steal a finely tacked-out white horse, which was, oddly enough, standing unattended in the street, that this young thief discovered that the tables could turn on him--and that he himself could be stolen!

Take a Thief

Excellent book!

Enjoyed it thoroughly! One of the best in the series, I think - very different in some ways from the rest (i.e. little use of magic or Mind-Talents) but perhaps that's part of the charm as well. Well, Skif has always been one of my favorite characters, so I'm not surprised. :)
