Nothing like "The Thief"
WTF? Are "The Thief" and "The Queen of Attolia" really books of the same series? The beginning of the book was breathtaking but then it just went to dull politics. What really put me off was that romance. It not only made no sense at all that there should be that love but it felt downright sick to me. I loved the first book because the characters made sense and most of the were really likable in their own ways. This book had really nothing of that! It would need a trustworthy person to convince me that the rest of the series gets better. As it is "The Thief" is a great standalone and should have been left at that.
One star for deep disappointment, the second one for the thrilling start of this book. Meh. Time to re-read the Riyria series.
