The Queen of Attolia
The Queen of Attolia | Megan Whalen Turner
RevengeWhen Eugenides, the Thief of Eddis, stole Hamiathes's Gift, the Queen of Attolia lost more than a mythical relic. She lost face. Everyone knew that Eudenides had outwitted and escaped her. To restore her reputation and reassert her power, the Queen of Attolia will go to any length and accept any help that is offered...she will risk her country to execute the perfect revenge. ...but Eugenides can steal anything. And he taunts the Queen of Attolia, moving through her strongholds seemingly at will. So Attolia waits, secure in the knowledge that the Thief will slip, that he will haunt her palace one too many times. ...at what price? When Eugenides finds his small mountain country at war with Attolia, he must steal a man, he must steal a queen, he must steal peace. But his greatest triumph--and his greatest loss--comes in capturing something that the Queen of Attolia thought she had sacrificed long ago...Books for the Teen Age 2001 (NYPL) and Bulletin Blue Ribbon Best of 2000 Award

Eugenides is up to his thieving ways again, and they‘re not without significant political ramifications. I‘m looking forward to continuing the series. #wintergames #merryreaders #tbrread

I am not a great audiobook listener - I‘m too easily distracted and easily forget details if it‘s been too long - so discovering that rereading old favorites via audio works for me has been a joy. Esp when those favorites have an excellent narrator as the thief series does. Always love!

This was a wild ride! Twists and turns that Turner seems to excel at! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!
Will be taking a break from the series to enjoy this ending I do believe :). How long that break will be might be days or weeks. Who knows!

Oh boy there was a lot of politics in this and I THINK I kept it all straight. Once again everyone be lying to each other 24/7/365. This just feels like the OG YA politic fantasy for some reason to me. I'm not CRAZY about the romance developing but I can definitely see its purpose

Though this second book suffered from a few pacing issues, I love where the story went in this novel. The additional perspectives added to this second book benefited the story. I've started the third book, and I am enjoying it just as much!

Perfect for all the times I'll be rereading these in the future (These are my fourth copies, I think? I have paperbacks of the old editions, ebooks, and my lending copies are with a friend).

Finally finished rereading this gem of a novel! Still as good as I remembered it to be, and I highlighted so many lines because I loved them. If you're a fan of YA fantasy then you should definitely read MWT's Queen's Thief series! I have so much love for her writing and I can't wait to reread more of it. A brownie and a dirty chai chocolate in the background! ☕🍰

#bookanddessert! The best kind of desserts are the ones that have ripe Philippine mangoes in them. This is Cafe Breton's signature La Pinay crepe. The only thing that would make this even better was if Bono Gelato's mango ube was used to top it instead of vanilla ice cream. Also, I keep tagging the same book because I barely have time to read while on vacation.
