After having read some novels recently that either disappointed me in their lack of creativity or required me to drag my way through their pages, I picked up The Spirit Thief hoping that the tale would live up to the blurb on the back cover. If it didn’t, I could at least know that it would be short. However, after rapidly devouring the book I looked hopefully around for the next and was disappointed to find it not close to hand. I would recommend readers have Rachel Aaron’s next books close by in order to continue the story – while Aaron does not leave the story on a cliff hanger, she does leave a number of questions unanswered, a curiosity to know more and the knowledge that the story just completed is only the start of something much larger.
