I just finished reading the Queen's Thief books while primed by [personal profile] ellen_fremedon's post on the subject, so I couldn't help noticing that Sounis's reemergence in A Conspiracy of Kings forms a perfect natural sedoretu. I ship all four marriages kind of a lot, but the het couples are obviously too cute to break up.

(Incidentally, can I just praise the craft that goes into writing four books in a series that each end with the exact same plot twist? It's like M. Night Shyamalan directed four movies that each end with the revelation that Bruce Willis is, in fact, dead. [That probably would have been a better reveal at the end of The Happening.] That takes serious writing chops.)

I won my copies of The Thief and The Queen of Attolia from Worldbuilders 2010, so Megan Whalen Turner drew a cow in the front of my book.
