Publisher's Summary

Eli Monpress is brilliant. He's incorrigible. And he's a thief.

He’s also still at large, which drives Miranda Lyonette crazy. While she’s been kicked out of the Spirit Court, Eli’s had plenty of time to plan his next adventure. But now the tables have turned, because Miranda has a new job - and an opportunity to capture a certain thief.

Things are about to get exciting for Eli. He’s picked a winner for his newest heist. His target: the Duke of Gaol’s famous “thief-proof” citadel. Eli knows Gaol is a trap, but what’s life without challenges? Except the Duke is one of the wealthiest men in the world, a wizard who rules his duchy with an iron fist, and an obsessive perfectionist with only one hobby: Eli.

It seems that everyone is hunting for Eli Monpress.

Catch a thief: listen to another Eli Monpress adventure.

    "Awesome!"

    The duke is an awesome bad guy!!! The story is good, I liked how you learned a little more about Eli's past. Josef rocks! This is a great second book. I will for sure be listening to the next in the series.

    Love epic sci fi and fantasy, but hate looking of really good books. So many duds out there. I am gamer too.

    "It just gets better."

    Rachel Aaron authoring skills improve greatly in this book and the third. The dialog and plot are much better here. If you did the first book and liked it then you can only continue on and enjoy it more. There are still a few loose ends by the third book so I expect a fourth. This is a book you can enjoy listening to with your kids. The story is not complex but is very engaging. Would love to see the author write a more hard core fantasy with a more complex story and characters. I think this as an author to watch out for in the future. Well worth the credit.

    "A fun read"
    What made the experience of listening to The Spirit Rebellion the most enjoyable?

    Quick moving storyline, very well performed by reader


    What did you like best about this story?

    Characters are fun to spend time with


    Which character – as performed by Luke Daniels – was your favorite?

    Wow! Hard to choose; perhaps Eli.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Oh yes! However, I only listened while working out at the gym. It was interesting enough to prevent boredom on the stationary bike.

    Love to read and I am really enjoying audible. Fantasy and sci fi are my faves but I also enjoy period novels and historical fiction.

    "The performance made the story"

    Some of this plot was hard to follow and not fleshed out very well. Considering it's about the spirit thief, most of the story doesn't seem to really be about Eli

    Story
    "Accept the Cartoon Logic, and Have Fun!"

    This is not Game of Thrones, hyper-realistic "gritty" fantasy here. This is a cartoon. It does not suffer from cartoon logic, it embraces it.

    Example the magic system animates EVERYTHING. You will see bank vault doors rolling around and throwing themselves at people. Once you understand this, the series is awesome!

    Eli's Father made the whole book enjoyable. The first book wasn't anything special, but this second book had A Great Villain, a Great Supporting Cast (Eli's Father :)

    Eli is great as always.

    Great Narrator!!!

    "have you ever imagined a book as a movie..."

    in your mind? Well this book series is an anime. it's silly and over the top in just the right ways. The characters manage to be cliches, and wonderful for that fact. This book is fun, light hearted and generally worth a listen.

    The reader adds to this as well. I've listened to one other series he reads, and I'll be looking for more works narrated by him in the future. He voiced each of the wide range of characters uniquely, and really brings this fun work to life

    After reading this book I can't stop thinking this is the new Harry Potter! I loved the history and can't wait to see it on a movie!

    "Even better than the first book!"

    This book takes place soon after the end of the first book as our heroes deal with the events of the first book. Only this time we get some great new and fascinating characters.

    This world and its spirit-based derivation of magic works really well. It sets up some great interpersonal dynamics, not only between people but between them and the spirits of doors, walls, rivers and trees. Only the wizards can communicate with these spirits.

    And the spirits have personalities, just like people do. Genius!

    The reader on this book does an even better job than he did with the last book. He is perfect for the wise-cracking Eli.

    How can I not read the next one? Five stars!
