Book Review: The Thief

Summary: The king's scholar, the magus, believes he knows the site of an ancient treasure. To attain it for his king, he needs a skillful thief, and he selects Gen from the king's prison. The magus is interested only in the thief's abilities. 
 What Gen is interested in is anyone's guess. Their journey toward the treasure is both dangerous and difficult, lightened only imperceptibly by the tales they tell of the old gods and goddesses.

Thoughts: One of the best books I've read in a while! The Thief is full of rich wit and humor that I love! While, granted, the story drags a bit, the characters are what really make the book. Smart, crafty, loyal; they each have their goals, their purposes, their secrets, and they numerous twists and turns of the plot (not to mention the big reveal at the end!) make this book a fantastically unique experience! Needless to say I liked it, a lot, and fully intend to read the rest of the series as soon as I can get my hands on them!

Content: A tiny bit of language (D*** on occasion, I think that's all though). Half the plot revolves around ancients gods and goddesses and some people might find it offensive though they were more along the lines of the Greek myths.
