Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nothing is overdone and not a word is out of place in this auspicious debut," wrote Kirkus in a starred review of Instead of Three Wishes, the first book by Megan Whalen Turner. Her second book more than fulfills that promise.

The king's scholar, the magus, believes he knows the site of an ancient treasure. To attain it for his king, he needs a skillful thief, and he selects Gen from the king's prison. The magus is interested only in the theif's abilities. What Gen is interested in is anyone's guess. Their journey toward the treasure is both dangerous and difficult, lightened only imperceptibly by the tales they tell of the old gods and goddesses.

Megan Whalen Turner weaves Gen's stories and Gen's story together with style and verve in a novel that is filled with intrigue, adventure, and surprise.

Synopsis:

Deception, intrigue and adventure abound in this entertaining and original book. The king's scholar, the magus, has discovered the location of an ancient treasure that invests the possessor with the right to rule a neighboring country. He springs a skilled thief from the king's prison to do the job. Young Adult.

This was one of the best books I've read. The way Megan Whalen Turner writes you would never guess that there was something underneath her words. This is a great book to reread because you can pick up on things you miss the first time.
