Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Eugenides, the Thief of Eddis, stole Hamiathes's Gift, the Queen of Attolia lost more than a mythical relic. She lost face. Everyone knew that Eudenides had outwitted and escaped her. To restore her reputation and reassert her power, the Queen of Attolia will go to any length and accept any help that is offered...she will risk her country to execute the perfect revenge.

Eugenides can steal anything. And he taunts the Queen of Attolia, moving through her strongholds seemingly at will. So Attolia waits, secure in the knowledge that the Thief will slip, that he will haunt her palace one too many times.

When Eugenides finds his small mountain country at war with Attolia, he must steal a man, he must steal a queen, he must steal peace. But his greatest triumph — and his greatest loss — comes in capturing something that the Queen of Attolia thought she had sacrificed long ago...

Review:

"Turner's storytelling is so sure that readers will want to go along with her...and discover whatever it is that Eugenides will do next." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"This is a story to savor, one of those books a reader will race through to find out what happens, at the same time never wanting it to end." VOYA

Review:

"[A] story of love and war in which love wins out. It is sure to find readers among admirers of the first book." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

When his small mountains country goes to war with the powerful nation of Attolia, Eugenides the thief is faced with his greatest challenge. He must steal a man, he must steal a queen, and he must steal peace.

But his greatest triumph-as well as his greatest loss-can only come if he succeeds in capturing something the Queen of Attolia may have sacrificed long ago.

Synopsis:

In this gripping sequel to the Newbery Honor Book "The Thief", Eugenides finds his small mountain country at war with Attolia. He realizes that he must steal a man, a queen, and peace.

This one caught me completely off guard. I had read the first book in the series (the Thief) several years ago and loved it. When I saw the sequel I was a little afraid that it would drag down the first. But if anything it has even more lovely twistings of plot and character. I've already recommended this series to several friends and would heartily encourage all of you to fall in love; as I did, with Megan Whalen Turner's world.
