The Thief’s Daughter is the second book in the Kingfountain Series. However, it can easily be understood and enjoyed without having read The Queen’s Poisoner, which is the first book of the series. The story takes place in Kingfountain, an author-created world with a mystical and medieval feel to it.
The point-of-view character is Owen Kiskaddon, a Fountain-blessed 17 Year Old. The threat of invasion hanging over Ceredigion and an imposter claiming rights to the throne set the stage for this incredible yet believable tale. The story twists and turns while Owen tries to discern who is trustworthy and who is not, all the while having his loyalty harshly tested by King Severn.
The characters are described and expressed in such efficient detail as to give them a depth beyond what might be expected, quickly earning them a place in your heart. It’s what I love most about this series because, similar to real life, it’s usually not just black and white but a plethora of grey. This character depth in combination with the nature and flow of the tale itself make The Thief’s Daughter an easy book to read and an impossible one to put down. Overall, I rate The Thief’s Daughter 5 out of 5 bookworms.

The theme phrase for The Kingfountain Series seems to be, “Loyalty binds me.” King Severn tests the loyalty of his subjects harshly. Would you have remained loyal through the tests Owen faced? Why or why not? Let me know in the comments!
