The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner
Series: The Queen's Thief #1
I think I read this once upon a time years ago, but pleasantly it was long enough that I did not remember the many twists. Turner definitely keeps you on your toes especially with a cast of characters that just keeps on surprising you. There is nothing two dimensional about this tale filled with adventure and intrigue. Of course one of the strongest recommendations I can give a book is the fact that I could not put it down until I was finished. I took this one off the shelf because of all the things I have been hearing about the fourth book and let me say I cannot wait to get my hands on the rest of the series. I honestly can’t understand how I didn’t fall in love with it a long time ago.
