Just a quick review since I left a gushing one for The Thief
which is the book that begins this outrageously wonderful YA series by Megan Whalen Turner.
This book could easily be spoiled, so I won't say much. It's darker than its predecessor, but the payoff is excellent. Exciting, suspenseful and emotional, it's the first book I literally walked around the house reading while continuing to try to do my chores. I could not put it down.
While The Thief
is told in the first person, this one is told in the third person from a couple of different POVs. The switch works well, considering the progression of the story line.
Yes ... I do love this series. Yes ... I do want you to read it.
