Review:

"Megan Whalen Turner has constructed a clever world filled with suspense and intrigue and characters that will never be forgotten. Once you dive into the world of the Queen's Thief [books], prepare to have your life stolen from you until you finish them all."--Joelle Charbonneau, New York Times-bestselling author of the Testing trilogy

"Turner is a mature and amazing writer. I love this book: new characters mixed with Eugenides the Thief and world building like no other! My favorite of 2017."--Judy Bulow, Tattered Cover Bookstore

"The complexity of Turner's world combined with the suspense of her layered plot creates a story that will appeal to readers of all ages. The thrill of the chase is magnetic-as is Kamet's budding and unlikely friendship with an Attolian...a spectacularly enchanted empire imagined by a master storyteller."--Shelf Awareness

"Turner's eagerly awaited fifth Queen's Thief novel displays in full her many fortes: ingenious plotting, nuanced characterization, and a subtle slight of hand in the telling that promises to surprise even very astute readers. ...Thoroughly tricky, insightful, and satisfying."--Horn Book (starred review)

"Even minor characters in Turner's Queen's Thief saga have fascinating stories to tell, as she proves in this fifth installment...Turner writes with complete authority about her richly imagined landscape. ...Turner fills out and enriches the expansive canvas on which she stitches her epic tale."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"The stakes are high and peace uneasy...Turner builds suspense not with battles and gore but through strategizing and charged, subtle dialogue. ...remains as fresh as the latest headline."--Washington Post

"Kamet's growth...is first-rate. As with Turner's other Attolia books, this invites an older audience, but the perilous journey, character growth, and understated affection of shield brothers offer more teen appeal...A stand-alone that won't disappoint Turner aficionados."--Kirkus Reviews

"Turner builds suspense not with battles and gore but through strategizing and charged, subtle dialogue. ...stylishly written . . . with its fractious leaders and fraught politics, remains as fresh as the latest headline."--Newsday

"Turner is a criminally underrated writer, and this stand-alone novel from [the] "Queen's Thief" [world] shows her again playing with narrative perspective, mixing history with fantasy to brilliant effect."--Nickolas Butler, internationally bestselling author of Shotgun Lovesongs and The Hearts of Men

From the Back Cover:

An epic novel set in the world of the Queen's Thief.

Deep within the palace of the Mede emperor, in an alcove off the main room of his master's apartments, Kamet minds his master's business and his own. Carefully keeping the accounts, and his own counsel, Kamet has accumulated a few possessions, a little money stored in the household's cashbox, and a significant amount of personal power. As a slave, his fate is tied to his master's. If Nahuseresh's fortunes improve, so will Kamet's, and Nahuseresh has been working diligently to promote his fortunes since the debacle in Attolia.

A soldier in the shadows offers escape, but Kamet won't sacrifice his ambition for a meager and unreliable freedom; not until a whispered warning of poison and murder destroys all of his carefully laid plans. When Kamet flees for his life, he leaves behind everything--his past, his identity, his meticulously crafted defenses--and finds himself woefully unprepared for the journey that lies ahead.

Pursued across rivers, wastelands, salt plains, snowcapped mountains, and storm-tossed seas, Kamet is dead set on regaining control of his future and protecting himself at any cost. Friendships--new and long-forgotten--beckon, lethal enemies circle, secrets pile up, and the fragile hopes of the little kingdoms of Attolia, Eddis, and Sounis hang in the balance.

Thick as Thieves is New York Times-bestselling author Megan Whalen Turner's triumphant return to the world of the Queen's Thief.
