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 and feature one of the most charismatic and incorrigible characters of fiction, Eugenides the thief. A Conspiracy of Kings is perfect for fans of Leigh Bardugo, Marie Lu, Patrick Rothfuss, and George R.R. Martin.
When Sophos, heir to the throne of Sounis, disappears after an attempted assassination, those who care about him—including the thief Eugenides and the Queen of Eddis—are left to wonder where he has gone and if they will ever see him again. The Queen’s Thief novels are rich with political machinations and intrigue, divine intervention, battles lost and won, dangerous journeys, power, passion, and deception . . . while across the sea, a ruthless empire watches and waits for even the slightest weakness. This new paperback edition
includes exclusive extra materials.
