Thick as Thieves: A Queen's Thief Novel (MP3 CD)
"I love Thick as Thieves by Megan Whalen Turner!
It takes place in the world of the Queen's Thief Chronicles (best of the best in young adult fantasy) with a nodding glance at some of the characters from there. No need to have read the other books though: this book stands alone. The story involves a slave- on the order of the Greek slaves - who knows the rules well and works to expand his role in this city-state. But life gets in the way. This is a thrilling, adventuresome book with characters that are neither saints or villains, but saints with flaws and villains with goodness. World-building is magnificent and the writing is elegant. As an adult or young adult, if you read this book you will want to read everything by Megan Whalen Turner!" -- Judy Bulow, frontlist kids byer— Judy Bulow
