Description

Discover and rediscover the world of the Queen's Thief, from the acclaimed novel The Thief to the thrilling, twenty-years-in-the-making conclusion, The Return of the Thief. The epic novels set in the world of the Queen's Thief can be read in any order.

New York Times-bestselling author Megan Whalen Turner's entrancing and award-winning Queen's Thief novels bring to life the world of the epics and feature one of the most charismatic and incorrigible characters of fiction, Eugenides the thief. Megan Whalen Turner's Queen's Thief novels are rich with political machinations and intrigue, battles lost and won, dangerous journeys, divine intervention, power, passion, revenge, and deception. Perfect for fans of Leigh Bardugo, Marie Lu, Patrick Rothfuss, and George R. R. Martin.

The brilliant thief Eugenides has visited the Queen of Attolia's palace one too many times, leaving small tokens and then departing unseen. When his final excursion does not go as planned, he is captured by the ruthless queen. The Queen's Thief novels have been praised by writers, critics, reviewers, and fans and have been honored with glowing reviews, "best of" citations, and numerous awards, including the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, a Newbery Honor, the Andre Norton Award shortlist, and the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award.

        Starred review from May 1, 2000
        This spellbinder of a sequel to the Newbery Honor-winning The Thief is every bit as devilishly well plotted and grandly conceived. As it opens, Eugenides the thief has fallen into the clutches of the queen of Attolia, who still seethes from his besting of her (relayed in The Thief). Unwilling to execute him, lest she start a war with the queen of Eddis (Eugenides's cousin and ruler), she orders his hand cut off. The drama is high, and the action grows only more engrossing. As Eugenides tries to reconcile himself to the amputation, war breaks out, involving Attolia, Eddis and Sounis, tiny countries modeled on ancient Greece and other Mediterranean nations. For the most part, Turner eschews battle scenes, although she executes these with flair. Instead, she emphasizes strategy, with brilliant, ever-deceptive Eugenides a match for Odysseus in his wiliness and daring, perpetually catching readers by surprise. When, fairly late in the novel, Eugenides decides that he must wed the fearsome queen of Attolia in order to achieve a more lasting peace--and that he loves her--it requires a certain leap of faith to accept that his terror of her coexists with desire. But 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. Ages 10-up.

        March 2, 2009
        Eugenides ("Gen") is a royal thief in the service of his cousin, the Queen of Eddis. Since his youth, he has felt something close to obsession for the powerful queen of the neighboring kingdom, Attolia. This sequel to the Newbery Honor book The Thief (1997) takes the story of the kingdoms of Eddis, Sounis, and Attolia in an unexpected direction. In the opening scene, the Queen of Attolia exacts a high price from Gen, whom she has caught sneaking around her palace. She has her royal guard cut off his hand. Admittedly, the title of the third book in the series, The King of Attolia (ISBN 978-0-06-083577-4. 2006), offers a clue to this story's conclusion. For fans of Mr. & Mrs. Smith (starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, 2005). Why It Is for Us: These political rivals are strong on the outside and damaged within. Gen's continued pursuit of a woman who would punish him in such a way is more than a little twisted. Is he after her heart or her throne? Does it matter so long as we get to watch? [The hardcover was published in 2000.]
