Discover the world of the Queen’s Thief

New York Times-bestselling author Megan Whalen Turner’s entrancing and award-winning Queen’s Thief novels bring to life the world of the epics and feature one of the most charismatic and incorrigible characters of fiction, Eugenides the thief. Megan Whalen Turner’s Queen’s Thief novels are rich with political machinations and intrigue, battles lost and won, dangerous journeys, divine intervention, power, passion, revenge, and deception. Perfect for fans of Leigh Bardugo, Marie Lu, Patrick Rothfuss, and George R. R. Martin.

Eugenides, no stranger to desperate circumstances, has gotten himself into difficulties he can’t get out of. Used to being treated with a certain measure of wariness, if not respect, he suffers the pranks, insults, and intrigue of the Attolian court with dwindling patience. As usual, nothing is as it appears when he rescues a hot-headed young soldier in the Palace Guard. The Queen’s Thief novels have been praised by writers, critics, reviewers, and fans and have been honored with glowing reviews, “best of” citations, and numerous awards, including the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, a Newbery Honor, the Andre Norton Award shortlist, and the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award. Discover and rediscover the stand-alone companions, The Queen of Attolia, The King of Attolia, A Conspiracy of Kings, and Thick as Thieves, all epic novels set in the world of the Queen’s Thief.

This edition of The King of Attolia includes “Wineshop,” an exclusive story about Eugenides by Megan Whalen Turner, an introduction to the characters from the world of the Queen’s Thief, a map of the world of the Queen’s Thief, and an exclusive teaser to Thick as Thieves.

“The Queen’s Thief books awe and inspire me. They have the feel of a secret, discovered history of real but forgotten lands. The plot-craft is peerless, the revelations stunning, and the characters flawed, cunning, heartbreaking, exceptional. Megan Whalen Turner’s books have a permanent spot on my favorites shelf, with space waiting for more books to come.”—Laini Taylor, New York Times-bestselling author of the Daughter of Smoke and Bone novels and Strange the Dreamer

"Unforgettable characters, plot twists that will make your head spin, a world rendered in elegant detail—you will fall in love with every page of these stories.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favourite Book of the Series This one is told from a different point of view from a guard, but we still get plenty of Eugenides in it. This book is very clever and everything falls into place in the end that I did not see coming.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This Series Just Gets Better and Better This is a really good book. Very entertaining and very likeable characters. The main character Gen cracks me up with his know it all stubborness and dry humor. I didn't really find it to be too strong in the fantasy area, it kind of read more like a historical fiction to me. Except that it's not. So if you are looking for great fantasy, world building book, this may not be what you're lookig for. Eiither way I flew trhough this book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NOT DISAPPOINTED My expectations keep getting higher as I read the books in the series one by one and each time I'm always surprised at how much better it gets. I've heard from many sources that all the books are all good and I'm so glad that I found this series. It's so weird that it's basically unheard of in the book tube community but honestly, I feel like I have a secret jam all to myself. Recommended for everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this series Finished this book in about two nights. I love fantasy, so I appreciate this series and I find the world-building quite good. It's a perfect afternoon read, in my opinion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great! Never read the book prior to this, but was able to keep up no problem. Told from Costis' (a guard)'s perspective, we see Eugenides (the King) as incredibly and deceptively clever.
