Review: Den of Thieves | Cat Royal Adventures

7:41 PM

So I'm finally back into reading which feels absolutely amazing. And it's very awesome that the first book I've read since I got back home for the summer counted for one of my 50-book-challenge. *happy dance* I hope that after you read this post, you'll go want to read all the books of this series cause it's amazing. :)


Den of Thieves by Julia Golding
Publication Date: April 27, 2009
Publisher: Roaring Brook Press
Format: hardcover
Source: Me *swag motions*
Pages: 417 (But it's like a cute short book, so it's not as monstrous as it sounds.)


TRAITORS, CAPTIVES, AND A PEOPLE'S REVOLUTION

The third volume of the CAT ROYAL ADVENTURE series takes readers to Paris on a covert mission.


The Theater Royal is closed for renovations, so Mr. Sheridan commissions Cat to act as his spy in revolutionary Paris. Disguised as a ballerina, Cat joins the revolution, only to find that it is up to her to save her friends when they are captured as traitors. Like the previous two books in the series, The Diamond of Drury Lane and Cat Among the PigeonsDen of Thieves is filled with disguises, danger, drama, and, most of all, the irrepressible Cat Royal.

I've thought several times that I would get tired of this series or the characters would become childish or the plot would become obvious. Because it's happened to the best of my childhood favorites. I've loved books and then, a few years later, thought they were kind of...well...stupid. I don't like that. But it happens. So I kept waiting for it to happen with this series since it's Middle-Grade. 

That moment has never come. 

The Cat Royal Adventures series has continued to be awesome and just really fun. Cat, the main character, doesn't know who her parents are, doesn't really know how old she is, and gets into the best, most unbelievable adventures ever. Most of them (Psh, all of them) would scare me out of my mind but Cat (and she's a shortie too) just marches through everything with street sense and braveness that some people would attribute to her hair-- it's red. Although I'd have to disagree. I'm a brunette ;) 

In this book, Cat goes to act as a spy for her boss/protector in France, a country churning with revolutionary tension. She meets trouble at almost every turn, but she also makes friends and, of course, saves everybody. 

The book is set in England and France so I'd say I get double points. *wiggles eyebrows* 

This isn't meant to be a hardcore review, just a look into my reading life recently. YOU HAVE TO READ THIS SERIES. It's the best. (Yes, this is also my attempt to get you to read this and yell things in all-caps with me.) AND the author has a place on her website where her different characters answer interview questions. It's pretty much the bomb diggity.
