Genre: Fantasy, adventure
Series: I don't think it's in a series, but it may be. I haven't read the potential preceding books.
Number in series: Fourth, IF it's in the series. I don't know! Okay, according to Wikipedia it's in The Queen's Thief series.
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 8.5
Number of pages: 313
Time period: Fantasy, Byzantine
Main characters: Sophos, Eugenides, the Queen of Eddis, the magus
Exciting events: Sword fights, escapes, and more.
My overall opinion: A fun read! It sounds long, but is worth the time. I wish I'd read the books earlier in the series first, but didn't miss them too much, still was able to understand the story. It is a fantastical story, in a fantastical time, but similar to Byzantium, which is why we have the confusion about time period up there. :)
