Title: The Thief
By: Megan Whalen Turner
Terrific denouement (#6 in the series) to the Queen’s Thief series! Megan Whalen Turner is one of the strongest writers in Youth fiction today and this one is a masterpiece, ending the series with power and joy. Pheris is an disabled child used as a pawn in the politics of Attolia, but the High King, Eugenides, takes a liking to him. The small countries of Attolia, Eddis and Sounis face being conquered by the Mede empire. And only a Thief can steal the Medes’ victory out from under them! This book does not stand alone; you need to read the series from the beginning, starting with The Thief. Lucky, lucky you.
