Eli Monpress is vain. He's cocky. And he's a thief.But he's a thief who has just seen his bounty topped and he's not happy about it. The bounty topper, as it turns out, is his best friend, bodyguard, and master swordsman, Josef. Who has been keeping secrets from Eli. Apparently, he's the only prince of a rather feisty country and his mother (a formidable queen who's every bit as driven and stubborn as he is) wants him to come home and do his duty, which means throwing over personal ambitions like proving he's the greatest swordsman who ever lived. Family drama aside, Eli and Josef have their hands full. The Spirit Court has been usurped by the Council of Thrones and someone calling herself the Immortal Empress is staging a massive invasion. But it's not just politics --- the Immortal Empress has a specific target in mind: Eli Monpress, the greatest thief in the world.

It turns out that Josef is prince of a small state, whose mother is dying and who is summoned home by means of a bounty offer that tops...
It's really more 4.5 stars then five, but considering some of the stuff I've five starred in the past it's not that much of a stretch. Spirit War makes a pretty radical shift in the tone of the books, completing the evolution for heist capers in fantasy land to a more epic story line. They're still...
AGH!!! Oh. Em. Gee. I'm kind of a little dizzy...I just read about 400 pages in something like 24 hours so...whoa. I've adored every single Eli book so far, but this one was just mind-blowing. And even better? Somehow it made all the earlier novels even more amazing, too, even though I didn't t...
