Book Review-A Book of Spirits and Thieves

After reading Falling Kingdoms (or at least books 1-4), I decided that I was a Morgan Rhodes fan.  Since I found myself without a book to read, I decided to invest in another of her series, Spirits and Thieves, the first book being A Book of Spirits and Thieves.  It was different from Falling Kingdoms, though the stories are related.  I loved it.

The setting is much more modern, most of the story taking place in modern times in Canada.  It’s a fresh, new perspective from Rhodes, and really well done.  Most of the cast of characters are new, however, we learn a lot about Mytica, and there are small links between this and Falling Kingdoms.  The linking of the two series is awesome, and I look forward to seeing how it ends.

The story is narrated by three characters, two in modern day Canada, one in Mytica.  Each character is very different, and throws something different into the mix.  Rhodes clearly created a well-balanced set of characters.

Finally, the story is not the unpredictable-Game-Of-Thrones style story, but it isn’t too predictable and still has great reveals.

I highly recommend it, whether or not you’re a fan of Falling Kingdoms.
