The King's magus believes he knows the site of an ancient treasure - Hamiathe's Gift. To attain it, he needs a skillful thief and he selects Gen from the King's prison. The magus is only interested in the thief's abilities; what Gen is interested in is anyone's guess. A likeable rogue, Gen endures the difficult trek with much complaining and little grace, but shows his mettle when he steals the Gift twice and risks his life for his companions. The Thief is an exciting and compelling 'road-movie' story, with a cracking twist at the end which surprises both the magus and Gen's travelling companions - not to mention the reader!!Hide synopsis

I must disagree with the other reviewer by saying this is a well-written book, with an interesting plot and likable characters. If, however, you are chiefly a fan of high-concept epic fantasy, this is not the novel for you. Look instead for titles by David Eddings, Raymond Feist, or R.A. Salvatore. ...
I bought this book off of a list of recommended fantasy that NPR had on its site. I've been stagnant in my fantasy reading so I thought I'd try something different.
This book bills itself for young adult readers. I've got no problem with that as I'd read any good book regardless of the target age ...
