You know, I’m pretty much empty when it comes to my knowledge regarding Return of the Thief by Megan Whalen Turner. To start with, this is the sixth novel in a series I’ve not read and know very little about. But the funny thing is that the first novel of this series is actually already on my TBR. I’m not sure what it was that led to me adding The Thief in the first place, but it’s there and so it stands to reason that I’ll try it out at some point. As for now, I’m not really sure if I’ll ever end up wanting to read Return of the Thief as it all depends on how well the books in the series end up turning out. For now, I think the premise sounds interesting enough, but it probably won’t be a book or a series that I pick up any time soon. There are just too many other really good books that I want to read before I bother starting a six book series that I’m only vaguely interested in. This is the final novel in the series, which is kind of exciting, so if these books are ones that you enjoyed that’s at least something to be thrilled about.
The thrilling, twenty-years-in-the-making, conclusion to the New York Times–bestselling Queen’s Thief series, by Megan Whalen Turner. This beloved and award-winning series began with the acclaimed novel The Thief. It and four more stand-alone volumes bring to life a world of epics, myths, and legends, and feature one of the most charismatic and incorrigible characters of fiction, Eugenides the thief. Now more powerful and cunning than ever before, Eugenides must navigate a perilous future in this sweeping conclusion. Perfect for fans of Leigh Bardugo, Marie Lu, Patrick Rothfuss, and Sarah J. Maas.
Neither accepted nor beloved, Eugenides is the uneasy linchpin of a truce on the Lesser Peninsula, where he has risen to be high king of Attolia, Eddis, and Sounis. As the treacherous Baron Erondites schemes anew and a prophecy appears to foretell the death of the king, the ruthless Mede empire prepares to strike. The New York Times–bestselling Queen’s Thief novels are rich with political machinations, divine intervention, dangerous journeys, battles lost and won, power, passion, and deception.
