Is canceled Goldie who has always been both impatient and bold runs away risking not only her own life but also the lives of those she has left behind In the chaos that follows she is lured to the mysterious Museum of Dunt where she meets the boy Toadspit and discovers terrible secrets Only the cunning mind of a thief can understand the museum’s strange shifting rooms In an alternative realityfuturistic world a society keeps its children safe by constantly having them chained to an adult They are never left alone never allowed to stand to close to the edge of something dangerous or scrape their knees All things that might cause danger are banned by the Blessed Guardians who rule over the land in the name of 7 capricious gods Only one place an old museum is the danger allowed to stay There it is kept at bay by a strange collection of people But the balance between danger and safety is crumbling and one little girl is about to get swept up in it allThis was a fun creative read and pleasantly surprised me At the same time there is so much going on that the story often seems to lose itself The gods the museum the characters all seem to be vying for focus and it means none of them gets the reader's full attention Still enjoyable I think I'd read the next one in the series

Museum of ThievesWelcome to the tyrannical city of Jewel where impatience is a sin and boldness is a crimeGoldie Roth has lived in Jewel all her life Like every child in the city she wears a silver guardchain and is forced to obey the dreaded Blessed Guardians She has never done anything by herself and won’t be allowed out on the streets unchained until Separation DayWhen Separation Day Confession – I’m a museum nerd A full fledged card carrying Smithsonian loving history geek Pack a delightful fantasy adventure into a fantastical museum and to me it’s like Christmas morning – add to that careful plotting and deft characterization and you have Museum of ThievesThe world of Museum of Thieves is an original fascinating place – as for the Museum itself think Narnia if Narnia had taken everything scary from its history and stuffed in into one place where it all lives on forgotten and ignored barely held back from bursting forth and wreaking havoc once again It’s a fantasic metaphor for the power of history The city of Jewel is the antithesis of the museum a world sanitized of fear and danger filled with citizens so ridiculously over protected they have forgotten how to think and act for themselves This strictly enforced infantilism makes it shockingly easy for The Fugleman leader of the Blessed Guardians to enact his scheme to use the museum for his own nefarious purposesEnter Goldie a young girl who runs away and hides in the museum where she struggles to overcome her own indoctrinated helplessness Not only does she have to learn to protect herself soon she is called on to help protect the museum and the entire city from what the museum could unleash I really enjoy Goldie – she is exactly the right combination of daring and afraid Her courage isn’t the lack of fear it’s the struggle to overcome it She learns about the museum from Toadspit a boy who came to the museum before her He is the perfect blend of bratty resentful and loyal and the scenes of them together are my favorite parts of the bookI almost had one complaint about this story and that was triggered by the first scene of The Fugleman and The Protector together when Fugleman is obviously setting his Evil Scheme of Evil into motion It was so overt I felt mustache twirling could have broken out at any moment and The Protector his opposition seemed naive to the extent it strained credulity But then Goldie’s arc made clear all the reasons for that naivety and the scene fell neatly into place within the larger architecture of the story which smothered my objections And happily after that one scene there was never such telegraphing again – The Fugleman got down to business and everyone uickly came to realize something shady was going onTanner goes on to dole out tidbits that deepen our understanding of exactly what The Fugleman isThe Protector’s scalp prickled and for the first time in years she found herself remembering her seventh birthday Her father a talented whitesmith had made her a mechanical dog When she wound it up with a tiny key it whirred along behind her wagging its tail She had loved that dog the minute she saw it And so had her brother – loved it even because it was hers Loved it especially because it was hers He was only five but by nightfall he had somehow persuaded their father that the dog was really meant for him With an awkward apology to his daughter their father handed it over Within a day the dog was broken and the clever little key lost foreverAcross the board I love the character work in this book Tanner has sown the story with little discerning insights into all her characters making them all authentic and uniueI also love what this story has to say about what happens to a society when fear is given rule and too much is sacrificed in the name of safety It’s depressingly relevant to today’s worldWhile this book does have interesting things to say it is first and foremost a fun fantasy adventure On a pure story level it surprised and delighted me And there is much much to be explored in this world and in the museum I for one am delighted there are books to comeSo if you’ve ever had Professor Indiana Jones type daydreams of exploring dusty corners lost worlds and forgotten history you will love this bookFans of Jeanne DuPrau’s City of Ember definitely check this one outByrt Grade A
