It's just a question of how far you're willing to go to get it.In an effort to help make ends meet, Colm uses his natural gift for pickpocketing to pilfer a pile of gold from the richer residents of town, but his actions place him at the mercy of a mysterious man named Finn Argos, a gilded-toothed, smooth-tongued rogue who gives Colm a choice: he can be punished for his thievery, or he can become a member of Thwodin's Legions, a guild of dungeoneers who take what they want and live as they will.

An ordinary young farm boy in a fantasy realm leaves home to discover the larger world not, as is so often the case, on an important quest, but (reluctantly) as an apprentice adventurer who will learn how to delve dungeons for treasure. The setting, perspectives, concepts, vocabulary, and more are clearly derived from role-playing games and only make sense in that context. Anderson tells a fine tale within that framework, a nice balance of action, humor, and heft, with interesting characters. Protagonist Colm, especially, is well-drawn and complex. Young readers who've fantasized about becoming their game characters will find it an excellent treat.
