Flight of the Fire Thief

Fire Thief

Terry Deary




Prometheus is again on the run, and he flees in and out of time before landing in gritty, ramshackle 1795 Eden City. Enter our narrator: Nell, a young girl and aspiring novelist—she and her crafty pa travel the city with their stage show, trying to get their audiences to open up their pockets and purses. As always, Prometheus has a soft spot for humans in need, but using his powers to get his new friends out of trouble will betray his hiding place to the gods! Terry Deary masterfully interweaves two plots, with the action jumping at a whirlwind pace from Mount Olympus to the back alleys of dingy Tudor City.
