''At least that's one lie I didn't tell you.''
When his small, mountainous country goes to war with the powerful nation of Attolia, Eugenides the thief has his job cut out for him. Steal a man, steal a queen, steal peace. But his success -- or failure -- will depend on whether he can steal something the Queen of Attolia sacrificed long ago.
The Queen's Thief novels are rich with political machinations and intrigue, battles lost and won, dangerous journeys, divine intervention, power, passion, revenge, and deception.
