Review:
In this amazing sequel to the award winning novel, The Thief, little is as it appears. The wars and rumors of wars are played out against a backdrop of court intrigue worthy of the Byzantine Empire. Eugenides, while up to his old tricks as the official Thief of Eddis, is captured by the queen of a neighboring country, Attolia. In a horrific scene Attolia’s beautiful harsh ruler has the man’s right hand cut off. A wretched, sick shell when she returns him to his queen and country, his recovery is protracted and haunted. Yet, humanity is discovered in the most unlikely places, and gods worshipped in a dilatory manner, prove real.
