The Spirit Thief | [Rachel Aaron]

The Spirit Thief

He's not just any thief. He’s the greatest thief of the age - and he’s also a wizard. And with the help of his partners - a swordsman with the most powerful magic sword in the world but no magical ability of his own, and a demonseed who can step through shadows and punch through walls - he’s going to put his plan into effect. The first step is to increase the size of the bounty on his head, so he’ll need to steal some big things. But he’ll start with somethingsmall. Something like a king....

Publisher's Summary

Eli Monpress is talented. He's charming. And he's a thief.

But not just any thief. He’s the greatest thief of the age - and he’s also a wizard. And with the help of his partners - a swordsman with the most powerful magic sword in the world but no magical ability of his own, and a demonseed who can step through shadows and punch through walls - he’s going to put his plan into effect.

The first step is to increase the size of the bounty on his head, so he’ll need to steal some big things. But he’ll start small. He’ll just steal something that no one will miss - at least for a while.

Something like a king.

What the Critics Say

"After a slow start, debut author Aaron pulls the action together and turns in a romp of a lighthearted fantasy starring an absolutely darling rogue." (Publishers Weekly)

    "The full series is very good."

    The first book is good but the characters are better explored in the next two. All of them are well narrated and tie in nicely together.

    I hold a BA in History from York University of Toronto; a 3yr Diploma in Computer Networking from Sheridan College in Oakville Ontario. I have been "reading" audio books sinces the late 80s and a member of Audible back to 2004. What a really like is a good long story preferable over 30 hours. :)

    "Good Early Novel"

    Overall I wanted to like this novel. Eli Moonpress is an interest character; the magic in this world has it's flavor and does not come out sounding too much like a video game or another cookie cut system; Luke Daniels does a lives jobs of reading. The story line is good.

    The problem with the novel is that other then Eli the other characters felt to me very flat and unformed. They did not really seem to be anything other then dialog and a reason to change perspective. They we robbed of desire or personal motivation other then blunt and clear one surface one.

    It's not bad is just feels like a early novel where someone has mastered the art of creating characters who are real.

    "Wish I could give it more stars!"

    Unbelievably good. I'm so glad I found this series. There wasn't one thing about this story that I didn't like (and that's rare!). Luke Daniels is an amazing narrator. I bought the other two in the series as soon as I finished this one. Brilliant!

    "Well..."

    I've heard better narrations, and I've read better stories. That being said I am still a fan, and I would recommend this to any fan of high fantasy.

    "Engaged, again."

    I'm listening to this again because the last 2 books in the series have recently been released and I felt I needed a refresher as to what was going on in the series so far. I meant to just skip through it quickly and get on to the next ones, but it's such a delightfully fun listen that I found myself not wanting to just get on with it, but to relax, listen and enjoy. In my book, that's what makes a 5-star.

    "Entertaining"

    The story was good and I liked the narration. Only complaint would be the characters were a little two dimensional.

    "kind of average"

    The story ended alright...It got better towards the end at least. The magic system is left very loosely defined, so pretty much any new rabbit can be pulled from a hat at any time. Luke Daniels performances are usually better than this as well.

    "Very fun book."
    What made the experience of listening to The Spirit Thief the most enjoyable?

    The narrator was wonderful. The characters had different voices and the pacing and emphasis on words was perfect.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Spirit Thief?

    I loved how much fantasy was in it. I am a older reader and I found the whole tone of the book refreshing.


    Have you listened to any of Luke Daniels’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No i have not


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not really I just found it interesting and enjoyable.
