What the Critics Say

"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 best-selling author of the Daughter of Smoke and Bone novels and Strange the Dreamer)

"A Conspiracy of Kings brings the sweetest, sharpest kind of reading pleasure. Megan Whalen Turner's books are pure joy." (Rebecca Stead, Newbery Medalist and New York Times best-selling author of When You Reach Me and Goodbye Stranger)

    "Mostly good but my least favorite of the series thus far."

    This book fits in well with the rest of the series but too much war and strategy for my taste. It was a little hard to follow but maybe that's just because I'm not as interested in that aspect of the story. It is exceptional well tied together. As always I enjoy the intricacies of the relationships of the characters

    "Truly a good book."

    When I saw that the main character wasn't Gen I was ready to hate this, now all I can do is grovel and ask for forgiveness at my naivety. Although I do like Gen better I by no means denounce Soph as a bad character and would recommend this book to any fan of the series. I hope they are not prejudice against this book as I was and if they are, I hope this review will be helpful to them.

    "Not my favorite"

    I really like series, but I found this one a little hard to get in to. Especially on the heels of King of Attolia, which was so strong. Still a good listen. Really love Steve West. Just wish the end didn't have so many loose ends.

    "Right After an Author can't think of what else to"

    This is more of a spin off then really a part of the main story line. None of the major characters appear until the last couple chapters. The book lacked the flair of the others - it wasn't predictable but I never was really rooting anyone. It was more a very very long chase without a good feel at the end.

    "great characters"

    Steve West brings Megan Whalen Turner's beautiful characters to life. This book slowly builds to a great conclusion.
