    The Lymond Chronicles, Books 1-6 af Dorothy Dunnett (themulhern)
    themulhern: The books in the series have the same kind of arc. Lymond is small, irritating, and astonishing, just like Eugenides. And he has a tortured relationship with his one true love, just like Eugenides. The Lymond chronicles are for a more mature audience and are much better written, but the similarities are inescapable.… (mere)

    Amuletten fra Samarkand af Jonathan Stroud (Anonym bruger)
    Anonym bruger: Perhaps not as much of a master of wit as Gen is but certainly full of the same tense action-packed yet humorous style we all know and love

    Mistwood af Leah Cypess (cattwing)
    cattwing: I thought I'd never find a book worthy of comparing to anything with the Thief in it, but I think I finally have. If you enjoyed Turner's complex intrigues and plot twists, you may enjoy Mistwood as well.

A step back in the right direction. ( )

I really love this one for the outsider point of view where we (being familiar with characters from earlier books) have a different perspective from the main character and can see some - though never all - of what Gen is doing behind the scenes. As I'm rereading I also love seeing the family starting to develop among the kings and queens of the peninsula. ( )

The third book in the series and I am still turning pages late into the night trying to figure out the plot twists and turns. Told from yet another's character's perspective, I am in love with these books. A beautiful mix of adventure, mystery, suspense, politics, and just plain fun - romantic without being sappy, intense without being long-winded, passionate but clean, violence without gore. ( )

I started this series back in high school. I read the first two books and stopped there, because that was all my library had and I assumed things were wrapped up with the events at the end of book 2. Ha! Silly me! Years later I discovered the series continued and I didn't pick it up for the most superficial of reasons: I'd purchased hardback covers of the first two books and I couldn't find matching hardbacks for the rest of the series. The age old aesthetic reader struggle. Finally, I gave in, found the books in my libraries digital collection and waited patiently for them to come off hold.

Needless to save, I've waited a long time (10 years) to read this book and I was a little scared about what I would find. The series is deep with intrigue, with an unreliable narrator (even when written in 3rd person) so for a few pages I thought I'd made a terrible choice and would be completely lost. Thankfully the author does a wonderful job of gently reminding you of past characters and past events without beating you to death with them. I suspect there are a few minor characters and minor events that flew right over my head, but it wasn't anything that hurt my enjoyment of the book, and oh what joy it was!

This series is just as wonderful as I remember. I want to go back and reread the first two now. I also desperately want the next book in the series. The characters are well formed, the court intrigue is interesting, the twists and turns are clean and the antithesis of deux de machina. This is one of those series that I'd recommend to anyone, because I think the excellent writing and plot is excellent and accessible to all readers. ( )
