Review: I’m not too sure when I read this, though I believe it was a few years back, so I shall make this review short and sweet.
I remember being excited to read it, as at the time it was right up my alley of the type of books I wanted to read, some adventure with thieves and in a setting that wasn’t Europe, with a bit of a fantastical nature. The main character intrigued me a bit, and I believe it was because I was curious about where the plot was going and what’d happen by the end, I kept on reading.
I was waiting for everything to be explained, and mostly to have it all wrap up neatly, not knowing at the time that this was part of a series. And while it wasn’t hard for me to finish, I found myself wondering more and more what the heck was going on and why. By the end, I wasn’t quite impressed, and surprised by the ending, when we learned a bit more of the Thief. I just remember going “Oh, that’s it? Okay…” The political intrigue part of the story line, didn’t interest me, and once I learned this was a part of a series, I found myself not really caring about it, nor wanting to try out the sequels. Maybe one day I’ll revisit this series, but with so many other books out there, probably not for some years yet.
Cover: The cover did grab me, this version that is, and I love how simple yet captivating it is, from the border to the font to the photo-realistic illustration. A great update from the original covers.
