Eugenides was known as the man who could steal anything. In this book he was caught and paid the price. Then in recovering he was required to steal a man, a navy and a queen.
I enjoyed the beginning, but for awhile I was unsure where she was going. Then the middle came where she had the war and the strategies of the war. Country A fought country B and won some islands. Country B fought and won back some islands. Country C was stuck in the middle. It dragged a little.
I really liked the end. I felt as though it could have been developed a little more. We could have gotten more detail about what each character was doing and thinking, but I did enjoy it. I liked the characters. I cared what would happen to Eugenides Eddis, and Attolia. I liked how everyone underestimated each other.
I am curious how the author will continue the story with the next book.
