Book #11 "The Queen of Attolia" by Megan Whalen Turner
This is the second book in The Thief series. It picks up with the main character, Gen, from the first book. He is captured by the very scary queen of Attolia and ends up starting a war. Once again, Turner creates tense, humorous, and overall believable situations. As a child, I did not like this book much. I felt betrayed and confused by the character development. As an adult, I picked up on the hints at what was coming and I understood the plot a lot more. The twists didn't bother me, and I really enjoyed the story. Reading all four books together shows how important this book is for the later story. It's so well written and so fun to read.
