This is the sequel to "The Thief."
Eddis goes to war with Attolia, but meanwhile Eugenides is fighting his own personal battle, one of pain and loss.
Picking up from where they last book left off, Eugenides is charming and lovable as ever, but with a lot more on his plate. He has to steal a queen.
This book was as enjoyable as the first with a shocking twist at the end that was incredibly satisfying.
