The Traitor and the Thief by Gareth Ward

The Traitor and the Thief by Gareth WardSin is an orphan living a life of hard knocks in London when he's hunted down by a strange organization. Fearing for his life, he runs...

But there's more to Sin that just being an orphan, and as the story goes on he finds out more about who he is, and the dangerous and exciting world that is his inheritance.

There are gadgets galore, and much fun to be had in this novel that I like to described as a cross between Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and something darker and more steampunky - with a little Oliver Twist thrown in for good measure.

We'd suggest a readership of kids10+ But like Harry Potter, it would be hardly fair to say this book is just for kids, so grab a hold of your gadgets, and pick up your copy of  The Traitor and the Thief from Rona Gallery for $19.95 here

Review by A.J. Ponder author of The Frankie Files and Miss Lionheart and the Laboratory of Death

About the Author, Gareth Ward:

Gareth Ward, also known as the Great Wardini, is a magician, hypnotist, storyteller, bookseller and author. He specialises in magic, spinning tales and keeping you on your toes.
Apparently his letter from Hogwarts was lost in the mail, but I have no idea where it went, and neither does my pet owl.

Artist Spotlight: Gino Acevedo

Gino Acevedo's work is darker and more dynamic than the work of some of the other artists regularly featured at Rona Gallery. His work is very finely detailed. and has a strong use of negative and positive space, which gives the work movement. Gino's work is also different because he prefers to use a computer to help create his artwork than more traditional tools and mediums. His subject matter is usually that of monstrous looking creatures, like zombies and ethereal looking reapers.
We are very lucky to have some of his work on display at Rona Gallery.

His print "The Vampire" is for sale here on Rona Gallery's New Website
