Robyn Hoodlum and her friends are back in Band of Thieves, the second installment of Kekla Magoon’s series. While Robyn and her group continue to fight against injustice and corruption in the Crescent Rebellion, Governor Crown turns up the pressure. After a somewhat slow beginning, the plot picks up speed when Robyn and her side-kick Key enter the Iron Teen Trial. Risking everything, including her carefully guarded identity, Robyn competes for a highly sought after invitation to a dinner in the mostly inaccessible Capital District, where she hopes to reach a group of revolutionaries in need of rescue. When things do not go according to plan, a difficult situation forces this daring—and somewhat selfish—heroine to put the greater good ahead of her own desires. Fans of the series will be satisfied with her character development and look forward to future titles.
