The Queen’s Thief Series Finale is Coming and Readers Are Shook

You’ve probably heard about the Queen’s Thief novels by Megan Whalen Turner in your time. If you haven’t, here’s a breakdown of the series to catch you up (and trust us, you’ll want to be caught up). The first book, THE THIEF was released over 20 years ago, and four subsequent novels have been released since. Megan Whalen Turner is known for being a masterful fantasy author, as each epic entry into this world rich with royalty, ancient treasure, war, and a charming thief makes readers even more eager for the next.
She’s also known for making us wait—once as long as seven years—for the next book in the series. EMPHASIS ON SEVEN YEARS. Luckily, we don’t have to wait that long again!!!!

The Cover and Description Reveal

To say we weren’t emotionally prepared for the news is an understatement. And just as we were recovering from the news of the new book, WE GOT A COVER REVEAL AND SYNOPSIS.
Return of the Thief by Megan Whalen Turner
The thrilling, twenty-years-in-the-making, conclusion to the New York Times–bestselling Queen’s Thief series, by Megan Whalen Turner. This beloved and award-winning series began with the acclaimed novel The Thief. It and four more stand-alone volumes bring to life a world of epics, myths, and legends, and feature one of the most charismatic and incorrigible characters of fiction, Eugenides the thief. Now more powerful and cunning than ever before, Eugenides must navigate a perilous future in this sweeping conclusion. Perfect for fans of Leigh Bardugo, Marie Lu, Patrick Rothfuss, and Sarah J. Maas.
Neither accepted nor beloved, Eugenides is the uneasy linchpin of a truce on the Lesser Peninsula, where he has risen to be high king of Attolia, Eddis, and Sounis. As the treacherous Baron Erondites schemes anew and a prophecy appears to foretell the death of the king, the ruthless Mede empire prepares to strike. The New York Times–bestselling Queen’s Thief novels are rich with political machinations, divine intervention, dangerous journeys, battles lost and won, power, passion, and deception.

AND IT’S GLORIOUS! IS THE ERUPTING VOLCANO A METAPHOR FOR OUR EMOTIONS? WE THINK SO!
