Review for Jewel and Thorn & The Brass Key

The books are well written and the two main protagonists Jewel and Thorn are both engaging characters. The adventures the duo have are original, often wild, and mostly fun (to read at least, not sure Jewel and Thorn would aways agree!) So everything was set up for the books to be really enjoyable, and they were, but yet…

For some reason, I never really engaged with them in the way I normally would do, and I’m not entirely sure why.

Still, they are well written and entertaining and certainly worth your time.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0689872909, Paperback)

When 15-year-old Jewel Ranson's father, a traveling trader, is murdered at a fair, she sets out to avenge him. Accompanied by Rainy Gill, a juggler, she discovers that a strange power is awakening in her and, in a notorious gambling den, becomes involved in a grisly wager. On his 16th birthday, Thorn Jack steals a curious crystal from a neighboring settlement in this coming of age rite-of-passage. Returning home, he finds that his younger sister has been kidnapped. He sets out to find her with Racky Jagger, an enigmatic but worldwise individual. After many colorful adventures and encounters, their separate quests lead Thorn and Jewel to a momentous meeting—and the discovery of a common enemy.
