The Orphan and the ThiefThe Orphan and the Thief by M.L. LeGette

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Orphan and The Thief is a YA fantasy tale which was a delightful read even as an adult. Toad is a thief and a member of the Ramblers, a notorious gang. Forced to part ways with the gang, Toad is determined to prove himself, landing in a sticky situation he manages to get a very important job for the sinister Mr Owl.

Melena is an orphan who works for an apothecary, she is quick to study potion making, but her whole life surrounds her need to find her long lost brother Milo. Toad and Melena become unlikely partners in an adventure to collect a list of rare potion ingredients. They meet some wonderful characters and I particularly enjoyed reading about the game of cards and skill called “Bloodroot and Toadstools”.

A well written book with a tale full of magic, potions and adventures.
