Waiting on Wednesday--The Shadowhand Covenant, by Brian Farrey

The Vengekeep Prophecies, by Brian Farrey, came out last October, and was reviewed by Betsy at Fuse #8 with great enthusiasm, and by me with slightly less enthusiasm, but certainly with enough to be looking forward to the sequel. 

And I just found the sequel, The Shadowhand Covenant (HarperCollins) is coming out this October!

"With more twists and turns than a palace vault and one unforgettable family of thieves, this second book in Brian Farrey's epic Vengekeep trilogy will leave you breathless.

The Vengekeep Prophecies was termed a "rich fantasy" (Publishers Weekly, starred review) featuring a family of thieves that "couldn't be more likable" (Kirkus Reviews).

Now, in this exciting sequel, Jaxter Grimjinx is back. Trouble is brewing in the Five Provinces. Mysterious magical artifacts have gone missing from the royal vaults. Master thieves from a secret society known as the Shadowhands are disappearing. And without explanation, the High Laird has begun imprisoning the peaceful Sarosan people.

Jaxter Grimjinx suspects all these things are connected, but after the tapestry fiasco that nearly destroyed Vengekeep, he knows better than to get involved. Then he and his parents receive a summons from the Shadowhands—a summons that they would be foolish to ignore—and Jaxter is thrust into the heart of the conspiracy. With the help of a few new friends and an old friend he would rather forget, Jaxter will have to delve deep into some long-buried and dangerous secrets."

(This would be a good week for someone to review The Vengekeep Prophecies.  I need a "v" title to achieve my goal of having a Middle Grade Sci Fi/Fantasy round-up with something for every letter of the alphabet, so if you do, please let me know.  I also need e, g, i, n, o, and y books please).
