Hey, guys! I have an exciting announcement for you. Last night while I was scrolling through Twitter, I saw Laini Taylor repost about the cover change for THE QUEEN OF ATTOLIA Series by Megan Whalen Turner.
If you haven’t heard about this series written by Megan Whalen Turner, you should definitely check it out! It’s considered as a classic and is turning 20 this year, hence the cover change. I have read the first and second book in this series and I’ll be linking my review below.
“Better trust in the moon’s promises than in the word of the Thief of Eddis.”
When 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 Eugenides 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.
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…

“A thief never makes a noise by accident.”
The king’s scholar, the magus, believes he knows the site of an ancient treasure. To attain it for his king, he needs a skillful thief, and he selects Gen from the king’s prison. The magus is interested only in the thief’s abilities.
What Gen is interested in is anyone’s guess. Their journey toward the treasure is both dangerous and difficult, lightened only imperceptibly by the tales they tell of the old gods and goddesses.
