Good Batch this week

Thick as Thieves (The Queen's Thief, #5)Thick as Thieves
by Megan Whalen Turner

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Remember Kamet, the ambassador’s slave from a few books ago? Eugenides, King of Atolia & Thief of Eddis sent a solider to steal him.

Most of the book is a travel journey, blessed by the god of “how many ways can you lose all your stuff?” For quite a bit of this journey, I was playing “spot Gen the Thief” but I still missed his sneak appearance.
Eventually (this isn’t a spoiler, is it?) Soldier & Kamet reach Atolia. (told you it’s not a spoiler.) Gen is just so himself, its ridiculous. King Gen can’t possibly be a good king, can he, silly clown that he is? Ahahaha, I need to go read King of Attolia again. And I hope Megan Whalen Turner writes another book really fast.

Besieged (The Iron Druid Chronicles, #4.1, 4.2, 4.6, 4.7, 8.1, 8.2, 8.6, 8.7, 8.9)Besieged by Kevin Hearne

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Short stories, not a novel.
Various narrators. Fun, sad, thoughtful, and ridiculous.

River of Teeth (River of Teeth #1)River of Teeth by Sarah Gailey

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Cowboys… with hippos.
Let’s blow up the dam and steal them all.
It’s not a heist, its an operation!
The difference is, this one is legal.
Just don’t look at it too hard, OK?
