Why did I love this book?
This second book in Turner’s Queen’s Thief series focuses on Irene, the Queen of Attolia. Eugenides, the Thief of Eddis, stole a mythical relic from her kingdom. As she executes her revenge, she finds that he has, somehow, also stolen her heart. When Attolia falls prey to the grasping fingers of the Mede Empire, Irene has to decide if she can trust the Thief – and her own instincts. The story is intricate and engulfing, with deeply satisfying plot twists, and Irene is a complete badass.
