"The Elephant Thief" is ultimately a story about the hope for peace and understanding. Lia very elegantly shows us that war is not simply black and white, and she has done a great job humanizing the people on both sides. Arisha is a strong female protagonist who is clever and delightfully stubborn, determined to find a non-violent solution to ending long-held enmity. Readers will definitely find themselves rooting for her success. I devoured this story over the course of two nights, and I would highly recommend it to anyone seeking a tale of adventure and romance with a little magic thrown in.
Lastly, the book is set 300 years before Lia's first novel, "Bride to the Sun." While it is not required reading, it will certainly help to better inform readers about the expansive universe Lia has created. Plus, it's a quick and enjoyable read, so I would also suggest checking it out!
I did enjoy The Elephant Thief more than her first novel...I think it's because I liked the female lead better in this one. She's aggressively confident and hilarious, always a fun combination.
Ms Patterson doesn't make the mistake of a heroine that's strong willed out of selfishness, but out of compassion and conscience. She tried to be strong, but acknowledges her weaknesses. Think along the lines of Sherwood Smith.
