Has anyone else read this series? It's about a criminal boy genius who pretty much steals fairy magic. I'm rereading the series because I remember liking it as a kid. Who doesn't love child prodigies who are criminal masterminds? So far I'm not sure if I still like it. I don't like how it's written, I don't like how it sounds aloud, and I can't say I'm too terribly wild about the characters. I can't explain this new dislike for the series, but I'm going to reread the whole thing. Maybe I'm just in a bad mood today.

What are your thoughts on this series?
