Kings, Queens and Thieves

3 Sep

As soon as I cracked open the newly designed paperback cover of The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner, I was hooked (haha)  and tore through the next two books.

Somehow, I missed the arrival of A Conspiracy of Kings. I don’t know why.

But after hearing MWT talk at ALA this summer, I read the fifth book, Thick as Thieves.

Thick as thieves has the newest cover design, not the luxurious style of the first four books.  They now have covers in the new style.

Having read Thick as Thieves, I went back and read A Conspiracy of Kings. This is the sort of series in which you can do that. The first three books should be read in order. The two most recent books are about minor characters who appear in the first three. Although they are in chronological order, reading them out of order did not impede my understanding or enjoyment.
