For me it was pretty close to 4 Stars, but for younger readers it would probably be more like 4 to 5 Stars. It has some magic, some intrigue, some danger and some comedy, so it should have something for everyone.
The plot is predictable and a little juvenile in several places and it had a few typos but I liked it enough that I've started on book 2. We'll see how that one goes. Jim Morgan has had his entire world turned upside down. After waiting years for his father to come home and admire the way he has taken up the mantle of the lord of the house, he is surprised to receive his father's disapproval instead.

Growing up with his shallow, selfish aunt, Jim has learned to be a great prick who is hated by his entire staff. On the night of his return, Jim's father is about to tell him a great secret but is instead murdered, and it turns out his aunt had a role to play in the murder.
Jim must run for his life with nothing but the clothes on his back and a box containing the last words his father wrote to him-- a box that is magically sealed by a gypsy witch during an encounter after Jim's escape. Jim has many interesting encounters with magical beings, and some non-magical people who are still anything but ordinary that help him discover who he was meant to be all along. It's a heartwarming tale of friendship, family, and redemption. It's got a little bit of all the classics you love from Great Expectations, Oliver Twist, Treasure Island, and even some Harry Potter It's well-written, witty, and humorous even for adults.
One person found this helpful. Lord of the Rings. A Game of Thrones. American Gods -- These books transported me to different worlds where I forgot for a while that I was actually in the real world. In fact, those books became my real world. While James Raney hasn't been writing as long as these authors have, I found Jim Morgan and the King of Thieves just as engaging, and I was transported to an England where pirates rule the seas, a range of treasures lies in wait for discovery, and wily children not only steal bread, but they also stole my heart.
Young Jim Morgan and his entourage had me running the gamut of emotions, and a few scenes got me teary-eyed. Raney crafts a story that appeals not only to younger readers, but to older ones as well. With a touch of magic, riddles to solve, and a true Hero's Journey, Jim Morgan and the King of Thieves should be on everyone's bookshelf or e-reader. I have recommended this novel to my fellow teachers to share with their students.
I'm thankful that Raney wrote such a well-crafted tale that brought out my inner child; I got to be eleven once more and I haven't see that for a long time. Jim Morgan and The King of Thieves is for those who are young at heart looking for adventure, humor and a story of the magic of friendship. One of my favorite movies has been The Goonies since I was 9 years old and I have found a book that truly opened up the inner child who once believed in pirates, magic, boobie traps and children who can save the day by sticking together.
I immediately fell in love with the Ratt brothers! They were funny, brave and full of heart.
Jim Morgan and the King of Thieves
Raney did a great job at creating 3 brothers you feel like you have known your whole life or wished that you had. He also wrote Jim's transition from spoiled little lad to a boy of courage and love in a way that until I decided to write this review, I forgot that Jim was ever that terrible brat. The transition was so subtle and believable. I am a very visual person and appreciated the way the King was written because I could literally feel in my whole body how creepy he is and the pirates were so vun to read about with their accents and grime.
At the end of the day, if you enjoy far away places where pirates and magic exist, read this book. Beautifully written and perfectly paced, Jim Morgan and the King of Thieves is a must read for everyone who loves to step into world colored with a little magic and a lot of adventure.
