In this companion to the Newbery Honor book "The Thief" and its sequels, a kidnapped prince fights to reclaim his throne and his country in a sweeping adventure of swords, wits, and subterfuge.
From the Publisher:

Sophos, heir to the throne of Sounis, has disappeared without a trace. Eugenides, the new and unlikely king of Attolia, has never stopped wondering what happened to his friend. Nor has the Queen of Eddis, who once offered Sophos her hand. They send spies. They pay informants. They appeal to the gods. But as time goes by, it becomes less and less certain that they will ever see their friend alive again.

Battles are fought, bribes are offered, and conspiracies are set in motion. Across the sea, a ruthless empire watches for even the slightest weakness. And Sophos, anonymous and alone, bides his time. Until, drawing on his memories of Gen, Pol, the magus—and Eddis—Sophos sets out on an adventure that will change all of their lives forever.

Annotation:
Court intrigues, vast political maneuvering, a touch of romance, and the conflicted life of Sophos, "Useless the Younger" in THE THIEF, are highlights of Megan Whalen Turner's fourth book in the wildly popular Queen's Thief series. Deeply disinterested in becoming king of Sounis and longing for a quiet life, Sophos finds himself in the unique position of getting to chose when he is kidnapped by state enemies. With a carefully built world, a complex but compelling plot, Turner has outdone herself with this fantasy novel.

Praise

"Given the complexity of Turner's plot, readers should reread the first three books before beginning this one, which derives its power from the intricate construction of Turner's imagined world, a realm in which her founding mythology is as impressive as her descriptions of the land itself." 02/15/2010

"This is a well-constructed and intricate tale of action, adventure, and assuming the mantle of leadership." 04/01/2010
