This is a book targets to a Middle Grade and as I am far from those years I find it difficult to separate myself from whom I am now to a child of that age so perhaps my appreciation of this work is different than the child who would read it That being said the tale is of an adventure for a young mind to grasp onto As such the characters do not need to flesh out as much as they would for an adults mind or an adults needs Our hero Bronson is uickly confronted with great tragedy and immediately after finds that he has the superpowers that this genre serves Yet that great tragedy should serve as a motivator as a depth that needs to be explored and it is not well served Whilst we follow the plot of our young hero we see him add to his experiences and to those he knows and yet somewhat in an unrealistic way we find him meet others who would appear to have powers that will develop along the course of the series In addition enemies of course abound and these types are presented to us so that we can see the comic book like uality of villains Along with creating a city that allows for heroes and villains to thrive in Here we have the classic tropes necessary to provide a mix for the young middle grade reader and they might thoroughly enjoy the effort As an adult there are issues of presentation that need to be addressed as Point of View skews on occasion so dramatically that the reader is not prepared for the shift Should these continue to be overcome an older reader will find the outing to their liking as always is the case good will triumph over evil in the end

The first half of the book gets off to a rather slow start with some painful pun ch lines Damn itSeriously though Get ready for a lot of dog jokesThings definitely pick up in the second half and lead up to a fight with the villain which while entirely predictable was at least fun to read That seems to be the way things go from theonethreefour Four Superhero based books I've read over the past few years The beginning is slow because it has to establish the hero's back story and the second half is much interesting because we finally get to see all the super powers in actionThe plot was goofy and I really think the book would have worked better in a visual medium a graphic novel or a cartoonI loved the idea of the hero using a mix of super powers and plain show magic You can't deny that Bronson knows how to put on a good show And that's a good thing for a superhero who doesn't take himself too seriously like say a kid dressing up in a dog maskI had mixed feelings about the villain On the one hand Thieves' GuildOn the other handthe entire Guild was so over the top and ridiculous I guess I prefer a dark and brooding selection of Thieves to the freedom fighters of the story I don't mind politics being a driving force for thievery but it just felt weird seeing it in action in a modern settingThat's just my personal preference thoughThe ending chapters opened up a lot of potential for future stories but I wish it had explained a bit of why all these kids have super powers And how does Cyndi know Axle well aside from their brief meeting when they were both held prisoner Why did the villain handle the entire Dogboy situation the way he did It really made no sense What's the deal with Mayor LaneWell I suppose that's what seuels are for

Bill Meeks ê 5 Summary

Den of Thieves Dogboy Adventures #1Um his boss at The Old Curiosity Shop When the guild captures Dogboy he must decide whether to join them or take them down once and for all as he embraces his destiny as one of the “good guys”. This was a great middle grade read for boys Really interesting story with plenty of twists and turnsThe narrative switches between several characters it helps make for a well rounded tale You really get to see what each person's motivations are throughout the bookThere are several plot points that are lefts vague no real explanation of the powers Where do they come from Why do only some people have them What was the back story of Bronson and CindyI listened to the audiobook narrated by Nathan Beatty who does a great job with the pace I enjoyed his read most of the time it was just the villains I had a problem with It would have been of a surprise twist if the voices had been different It was too obvious for my likingOverall this is a fascinating series and has great potential for tween boys and girls Most of it comes from Bronson's POV but the parts with Cindy really mix in well I cannot wait to see what happens next for these kids There are loose ends still out there but I am sure they will be tied in the next bookDisclosure I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review All thoughts ratings and opinions are my own
