The Queen of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner

RevengeWhen Eugenides (yoo-JEN-ə-deez), the Thief of Eddis, stole Hamiathes's Gift, the Queen of Attolia lost more than a mythical relic. She lost face. Everyone knew that Eugenides had outwitted and escaped her. To restore her reputation and reassert her power, the Queen of Attolia will go to any length and accept any help that is offered...she will risk her country to execute the perfect revenge.


Eugenides can steal anything. And he taunts the Queen of Attolia, moving through her strongholds seemingly at will. So Attolia waits, secure in the knowledge that the Thief will slip, that he will haunt her palace one too many times. what price?

When Eugenides finds his small mountain country at war with Attolia, he must steal a man, he must steal a queen, he must steal peace. But his greatest triumph, and his greatest loss, comes in capturing something that the Queen of Attolia thought she had sacrificed long ago...

My goodness was this book good. It was fantastic from beginning to end. I think is probably my favorite of the series. In the Queen of Attolia we see the Eugenides that was hidden in The Thief. He is smart, loyal and funny. I felt in love with his character. I have so many favorite scenes in this book and I know I can’t write any of them because I would spoil the book. The Queen of Attolia is brilliant!
