The Thief

I have a problem with this book. More specifically, I have a problem with reviewing this book. The problem is that the ending of the book is so good, so perfect, so right, and so marvelous, and yet it’s so crucial that I not tell you what it is that I really have no idea what to write.

Gen is a thief. One that landed in the king’s prison, with no way out. Until the king’s magus — his highest advisor — decides that Gen is the person he needs, for only Gen can steal the item the magus wants. They’re off on an adventure of the highest proportions, full of daring deeds, grand myths, and wonderful wit.

I loved it, almost from page one (though it was probably more like page 7). Well-written, engaging — I even loved the stories of the gods, something I have a tendency to skip over — and winning. And, as I already said, one of the best endings I’ve read in a long time.

I can’t wait to see what happens to Gen next.

  1. That cover is nice, isn’t it Eva? It’s much better than the one on the hardback edition that the library has. That’s quite ugly. :)Hope you all enjoy it as much as i did.


  2. Ugh. I deleted my last reply because it had a typo that was driving me crazy. Anyway…hurrah! I love this series sooo much, and I love to see other people discovering them. Gen is by far my favorite ‘trickster’ character in YA and probably in fiction as a whole. LOVE these books!
