Synopsis: Engenides, the Thief of Eddis and beguiling narrator of the Newbery Honor-winning novel The Thief, returns in this brilliant page-turner. When Gen finds his small mountain country caught in a war between the nations of Sounis and Attolia, can his legendary talents stop the chain of events? Can he steal peace? Only, it seems, if he can steal the Queen of Attolia herself, a beautiful, cunning, and utterly ruthless young woman who may be too much for even Gen's razor-honed gifts. Megan Whalen Turner's crystalline prose and superbly crafted, multi-layered plot make this another unforgettable, masterful literary journey.

Review: In the firelit torture chamber the executioner's sword descends--and the Eugenides--the Thief of Eddis--no longer has his clever right hand. The Queen of Attolia sits calmly and watches the dreadful amputation behind her carefully cultivated mask of coldness, but later agonizes over what she has done to him. At the same time, she rages at herself for not hanging her captured prisoner outright.

Readers who first met Eugenides as the rascally teenager Gen in the Newbery Honor-winning The Thief will find that in this sequel he deepens through suffering and loss, but keeps the same witty talent for elaborate, crafty schemes of espionage and theft. Caught between two rival queens in a landscape based on that which surrounds the Mediterranean Sea, Eugenides is loyal to Eddis as her Queen's Thief, but in love (despite himself) with the beautiful and seemingly ruthless Attolia. In her small mountain country, Eddis controls the only bridge between the valley nation of Sounis and the coastal kingdom of Attolia, while all three are threatened by the ships of the powerful Medes. As the web of intrigue and shifting allegiances expands, and war is imminent, the Queen's Thief risks everything on an audacious and cunning military strategy to bring the two queens together--and to steal Attolia for himself. This remarkable fantasy, with its appealing characters, emotional intensity, witty dialogue, and inventive plot, will have teen fans panting for more. (Ages 12 and older) --Patty Campbell
