The Thief Who Pulled on Trouble’s Braids is a story about a girl or a woman, who is thief, and she is good at her job and she likes her life as it is. He has good friends, associates and some enemies, but her life is good. Until the day when one of her friends comes to her in a hurry and brings with him a piece of his loot for safe keeping, since his client wanted to con him and take the things without a pay. So Amra keeps the statue and agrees to look after the friends dog, if he is not back soon. On a morning, when she goes to feed the dog, she finds the dog, howling and her friend tortured and dead.

And so the action begins – uncovering of secrets, surprises, new friends and new allays and new and even more dangerous enemies and prophecy, that Amra will not lead a life full of soft billows and comfortable life but full of dangerous enemies and blood, hers and theirs.

It’s fast-paced and fascinating story about magic, friendship, death, ancient gods and goddesses.

Good read.

I cannot remember when I enjoyed a book more. Original and fun, full of action with engaging characters. I would love to see more in this world.

Did not finish as it did not appeal to me much. I felt that the writing was quite stilted.

Such a fun short read, hadn't expected to like this as much as I did. Good characters, pace and story. Amra was a great protagonist, mouthy and cynical but not irritating, reminded me a little of Ilona Andrews' Kate Daniels. I enjoyed it enough to read the second and plan to read the third.
