Conspiracy is here at last!
Megan Whalen Turner's Queen's Thief series is one of the finest at delivering political intrigue in a fantasy setting. Maybe it helps that there is very little magic (the world is grounded in real actions and consequences — usually), and it doesn't hurt that one of the main characters is a conniving, lying, well...thief. My only complaint is that it takes so long for her books to come out, but, rejoice, her latest is here! Conspiracy of Kings tells the story of Sophos, the young boy and would be king of Sounis, with a few guest appearances from some old favorites along the way. For nail biting twists and turns aplenty check this series out.
