While this is the much anticipated (by the fans) 5th book in the series A Queen's Thief it stands alone as a grand adventure with 2 would be adversaries, a slave who leaves his "comfortable" life in Mede only under duress and the Attolian whose mission it is to bring him back to Attolia and the king, both of which the slave, Kamet, despises. As you might expect, there is subterfuge, close encounters and a growing friendship between two unlikely and strong willed characters. As always, there is much more under the surface in terms of character and adventure. (Edie Ching, 10-14)
