I really liked this, although it took me awhile to get into it. I think that was because I couldn't remember the other books very well. I enjoyed the end more than the beginning and middle but the growing friendship between the two main characters was heartwarming and I liked the poetry. Also, NO ROMANCE in a YA book ... must be one of the only books out there without it! It was refreshing, actually, to read a story about friendship, politics, adventure and not a hint of romance. And this is coming from someone who loves romance.

I hope she continues to write books set in this world because I've liked them all.

I recommend these books for teens and adults alike.

A note of thanks to the author for not writing a f**king tome to tell a story.

Took me forever to finish but once I sat down and read a few chapters in a row, I couldn't stop. I really enjoyed how Kamet and Costis' relationship was fully realized towards the end, particularly because they seemed more like acquaintances forced by circumstances to travel together during the majority of the book. I thought it was a nice contrast and feelings appeared more sincere and with greater depth. Glad to see some of the old characters making an appearance as well.

The first books in this series were wonderful. This is a really good book, but it didn't live up to expectations.

While I am quite fond of the other books in the Queen's Thief series, I found this one less than satisfying. The plot twist was no surprise, and the main character was hard to like. The main conflict (if you can call it that) was never very well explained, and I kind of forgot about it. It turned out to have very little effect on anything, and overall, I felt that there was a lack of a plot. I kept seeing things that I thought would be developed into interesting twists, but they were discounted or left completely unexplained. Eugenides is seen only briefly, and he does not seem at all like the Gen I liked in the first book.

I love this series! They always have such twists at the end. That said, this one wasn't as good as usual. I guessed the identity of the Attolian quite soon, although I didn't remember his name exactly. (I really do need to reread the books :) Also, I did NOT like the way Eugenides was portrayed in this book. I understand that we are seeing it from Kamet's point of view, but Eugenides is too much and there isn't enough time to see how he was working behind the scenes. Not bad, but could have been better. I still liked it, though and read it in one sitting.
