9780060841829: The Queen of Attolia (Thief of Eddis)

When his small mountains country goes to war with the powerful nation of Attolia, Eugenides the thief is faced with his greatest challenge. He must steal a man, he must steal a queen, and he must steal peace.

But his greatest triumph-as well as his greatest loss-can only come if he succeeds in capturing something the Queen of Attolia may have sacrificed long ago.

Review:

“Readers will be spellbound, not only by the plot's ingenious twists and turns, but by the powerful webs of humor and sorrow, differences and commonalities, love and loyalty that bind this memorable cast together. “ Kirkus Reviews

It features a power struggle of potentially catastrophic proportions as war erupts when Attolia's Queen chops off the hand of the Queen of Eddis's Thief for spying. This complex plot, with its fiendish political twists, is set in a country similar to Ancient Greece, with its own set of interfering gods and goddesses. The Thief, Eugenides, returns a broken man to Eddis, but is roused from his despair by a messenger from the gods telling him to stop whining and start saving the situation. Young teenagers will be fascinated by its ingenious plot and wry humour, and by the fascinating cast of characters that people this ancient landscape. Financial Times
