The Thief (The Queen's Thief, #1) - Megan Whalen Turner

I enjoyed the medieval Greece-like setting, the stories of the gods, the elaborate heist, as well as the <i>real politic</i> of the international situation. A really good adventure story with characters that gradually are revealed to us. My only complaint was that it was pretty much devoid of female characters until the very end. I have high hopes for the rest of the series.

I forgot to mention that I haven't read better descriptions of someone learning to ride since The Horse and His Boy.

Library copy.

I will only add that in fact the rest of the series does include multiple female characters. And I loved this at least as much on the second reading as the first.
