Discover and rediscover the world of the Queen's Thief, from the acclaimed novel The Thief to the thrilling, twenty-years-in-the-making conclusion, The Return of the Thief. The epic novels set in the world of the Queen&;s Thief can be read in any order.

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. This first book in series introduces one of the most charismatic and incorrigible characters of fiction, Eugenides the thief. The 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, the queen&;s thief, can steal anything&;or so he says. When his boasting lands him in prison and the king&;s magus invites him on a quest to steal a legendary object, he&;s in no position to refuse. The magus thinks he has the right tool for the job, but Gen has plans of his own. 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.
