Praise
"[An] intense, intelligent sequel....Readers will be spellbound, not only by the plot's ingenious twists and turns, but by the powerful webs of humor and sorrow, differences and commonalities, love and loyalty that bind this memorable cast together."
"The rival queens have a solid physicality; their enmity is clearly explained, and their rapprochement is n more than hinted at."
"The characters are distinct and moving....The characters also, alas, use modern idioms like 'robbing the cradle'....At the end, the action has won out, leaving us with the juvenile equivalent of Tom Clancy....THE QUEEN OF ATTOLIA is a book to turn children into readers--bound, one hopes, for richer fare."
From the Publisher
First Line He was asleep, but woke at the sound of the key turning in the lock. The storage room held winter linens, and no one should have been interested in it in the middle of summer, and certainly not in the middle of the night. By the time the door was open, he had slipped through a square hole in the stones of the wall and soundlessly closed the metal door that covered it.
Annotation This sequel to the Newbery Honor Book THE THIEF, is considerably darker in tone and more emotionally complex than the previous fantasy. Eugenides, a nobleman who serves as the official Thief to the Queen of Eddis, is captured by the Queen of Attolia. Angered by Eugenides's theft of Hamiathes's Gift, a sacred relic, as well as his constant sneaking in and out of her palace, she has his right hand cut off. This brutal act sparks off a war between Attolia and Eddis, and soon the neighboring country of Sounis is involved as well. Meanwhile, the emissary of the powerful Mede Empire bides his time in Attolia's court, hoping to take advantage of the situation. Eugenides must somehow find a way to deal with his mutilation and bring a successful conclusion to the conflict...as well as confront the deeply confusing feelings he has regarding the Queen of Attolia.
Editors Note Forsaken by the gods and left to his own devices, Eugenides, Royal Thief of Eddis, summons all his wit and wiles in an attempt to conquer the rival Queen of Attolia. Reissue.
