This is a series that I didn’t think that I would enjoy at first. All I have to say is that it took me by the heels, grabbed me for the ride, and didn’t let me go even after the book ended. I own the first three books on my kindle and the last one in a paperback book. I love this series.
Amazin 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 for now. He’ll just steal something that no one will miss – at least for a while.
Like a king.
The Legend of Eli Monpress includes the novels: The Spirit Thief, The Sprit Rebellion, and The Spirit Eater.
Stuff to Watch Out For~ In this book there aren’t very many sexual situations, but there are a few facts that you should be aware of. One of the characters in the book, a deity of sorts, is described as never having to wear clothing, being as they are never really in a recognizable human form. They are completely white and can change themselves at will is what I got out of it- more of an entity than a being. Other than that? Nothing.
There is some coersion in these books- Eli is a thief who uses not violence, but persuasion and trickery. Still, even though it does teach against violence Eli is a thief and his morals do not have the highest of standards when it comes to taking stuff that’s not his. As you learn more about his situation though, you tend to sympathize with his cause. he does however, teach great principles of friendship and loyalty and the price and want for freedom. I loved this book. Absolutely.
In conlusion I have only one thing to say: READ IT! :)
