Title: The Thief
Author: Megan Whalen Turner
Book Series: The Queen’s Thief, #1
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 thief’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.
My Thoughts on this Novel
Well, this is the first time that I chose to read an older Fantasy novel and enjoyed it a lot. The world-building and characters truly drew me further into this novel and just left me wanting more every time I completed a chapter.
I’ve had my eye on The Thief for the longest time ever since the novel caught my attention at the bookstore, but like every other bookworm, I pushed the novel aside and read other Fantasy novels instead–which, honestly, weren’t as good as this novel.
I was mesmerized by the characters (like always) and was left wanting more after the novel ended. I am still shocked by how long it took me to even pick The Thief up, but I am thankful that I did this year.
For anyone who is wanting some more of the original Fantasy novels then I highly recommend this one for sure.
