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
