Well this man is the type of wizard who can talk to things and really anything for that matter. Swords, fire, bricks, trees, winds, birds, and as mentioned, doors. So being a wizard really only means that your options for company are much larger than a normal person. Well that and you can bargain with or force things to do your bidding. So when you can sweet talk a door into letting you out, they become much less effective as obstacles.
We quickly discover that this man's name is Eli Monpress and that he's a wanted thief and proud of it. What he steals next is a little out of the ordinary for him and is in fact the king of whose dungeon he had been spending the morning in.
This is where the second main character comes in. A young lady named Miranda from the Spirit Court, a magical law enforcement / environmental protection organization. She's come to capture Eli and ensure he doesn't steal some magical relic. To be honest, she's rather annoying at first but I think that's the point. The embodiment of all that is good and right with a short tempter. The hero that will rant to the villains on their evilness in the middle of combat.Read more ›
Buy this book if you love to read fun fantasy! The story is wonderful but I find the characters the thing that keeps me reading. What will our master thief steal next? Is the swordsman going to knock more people down? What kind of awesome power will the demonseed reveal next? Will the crazy spiritualist following the trio actually succeed in stopping Eli and his team? It's great how Aaron builds up each character and each relationship.
I can tell you that the writing is considerably better than some of the "fantasy" out on the market right now. I've purchased all of the individual novels at least twice. I've let friends borrow the books and they were so banged up that I needed new copies. Can't wait for the next book in the series!
The Spirit Thief
Magic, mystery, and a little bit of good old thievery. All in all Rachel Aaron's first book in her The Legend of Eli Monpress series is a truly fantastic book.
I'm a little embarrassed to say I didn't initially recognize this book as the fantastic piece of literature it is. In fact I probably would have missed it, if not for the fact that Orbit produced it.
What I mean by this is that since starting this blog I've learned a lot more about the publishing industry, such as, who produces the best urban fantasy/ fantasy/science fiction, who releases books at a speed that can keep a reader happy, and who is the most consistent with the level of production they put out. And from all of this I have to say Orbit is one fine imprint. They release great books in time periods to keep readers happy, they are one of the most consistent imprints in the level of high quality material that they publish, and they're constantly trying to make things cheaper and more affordable for the reader. But anyway enough about how fantastic Orbit is, the real crux of the matter is that I would have passed by this fantastic book without even knowing it, and that would have been the real crime.
The Spirit Thief is fun, well written, and full of well developed characters. Aaron does a fantastic job creating a story around this first chapter of the Eli Monpress series.Read more ›
