    By scheming and theft, the Thief of Eddis has become King of Attolia. Eugenides wanted the queen, not the crown, but he finds himself trapped in a web of his own making. Attolia's barons seethe with resentment, the Mede emperor is returning to the attack, and the king is surrounded by the subtle and dangerous intrigue of the Attolian court. When a naive young guard expresses his contempt for the king in no uncertain terms, he is dragged by Eugenides into the center of the political maelstrom. Like the king, he cannot ... Show more

what will the Thief do now he has Queen and Crown?

by GoluxGirl on Jan 16, 2008

Unlike Gen's first-person narrative in "The Thief", and the Gen-centric third-person narration in "The Queen of Attolia", this novel is told one more step removed from Gen. The central character is one of the Queen's Guards, Costis, who impetuously punched the king and earned the punishment of traitors: hanging. But Gen steps in to save him for a new kind of hell: to become Gen's personal lieutenant, and be tormented by the 'jumped-up mountain goat' who can't even sit like a king. Soon Costis is embroiled in new kinds of treason, as others attempt to use his proximity to the new, weak king to gain leverage in a political war between the throne and the barons. Costis has a lot to learn once inside the palace proper: What exactly is the nature of the royal marriage? How is this king ever going to rule a people who hate and disrespect him--especially when he falls asleep during court? Why does the Queen keep silent? Will Costis save the king from those who want to pull him down? Or, will he join their efforts to sabotage the throne? The plot is full of finely-drawn details, the characters are rich with hidden layers, and Turner includes more of her Greek myth / folk tales to offer tantalizing clues for upcoming plot twists. Even more than the first two, I would love to see this installment on the silver screen. It has all the elements necessary: pictorial narration, action, intrigue, love, betrayal; with the right adaptation and direction, it would make an excellent film.
