The Thief - Megan Whalen Turner When Gen is arrested for stealing the king's seal ring, his escape from the prison comes in an unlikely way: the magus, the king's scholar, needs Gen's help in retrieving a magical artifact from a neighboring (and unfriendly) land. Little does the magus know that not only is Gen a thief, but he's also far cleverer than people are giving him credit for.While initially slow to get started, this book turned into a really solid, well-written and enjoyable book. I don't have a lot to say, really, but here's my general thoughts: this book had lots of twists and turns, political intrigue, and engaging and fun characters (particularly the narrator, Gen). I have heard from many that the series gets better as it goes along, so I'm definitely looking forward to reading the rest of the books.
