FABULOUS FINISH: The Thief
by Magan Whalen Turner
Greenwillow Books, 1996. Fiction. 219 p.
This book has, quite possibly, the best ending EVER. Bar none. For spoilery reasons--I can't tell you why the end of this book is so fabulous--so you're just going to have to go check it out and see for yourself why it's so good. Gen is a thief. A good one, actually. Or at least--he thinks he is. When he accidentally gets caught drunkenly bragging about his supposed exploits in a tavern--the king of Sounis' men have him arrested and thrown into prison for his crimes. Now the king's magnus wants him to prove his skill and steal something for their kingdom. Something extremely dangerous.
If you have not read this wonderful book already, then go out and put it on hold immediately!
