About the Book

Journey to the world of the Queen’s Thief in this beautifully illustrated collection, featuring bestselling and award-winning author Megan Whalen Turner’s charismatic and incorrigible thief, Eugenides. Discover and rediscover friends old and new, and explore the inspiration behind Megan Whalen Turner’s rich and original world. A stunning and collectible volume to return to again and again.

This collectible companion to the New York Times–bestselling Queen’s Thief series is ideal for longtime fans, as well as readers discovering Megan Whalen Turner’s epic and unforgettable world for the first time. The collection includes all of the author’s previously published short fiction set in the world of the Queen’s Thief, as well as never-before-published stories, vignettes and excerpts, poetry and rhymes, a guide to objects from museums around the world that inspired the author, and a very special recipe for almond cake.

The kings and queens of Eddis, Attolia, and Sounis all make unforgettable appearances, as do beloved and surprising characters from throughout the series and beyond. Meet Eugenides as a young boy in “Breia’s Earrings,” and Irene as a young princess in “The Princess and the Pastry Chef.”

The six novels in the acclaimed and bestselling Queen’s Thief series are rich with political machinations, divine intervention, dangerous journeys, battles lost and won, power, passion, and deception. This collectible volume features illustrations and decorations throughout, illustrated endpapers, a stunning full-color jacket with embossed foil and gold stamping, a cast list, maps, and an introduction by the author. 

Critical Praise

“What reader has not wished to linger a little longer in the world of a beloved story? With a compendium of short stories and fragments—some previously published and some brand new—Turner invites her readers to do exactly that. . . . A reading experience that is as cozy as it is expansive, answering questions even as it provokes more. . . . A gift fans of the series will treasure.” — Kirkus Reviews

“Presented in this way, The Queen’s Thief never technically has to end; it can be revisited like a beloved permanent collection, each return steering the reader (or its creator) into an unexpected new corner of discovery. . . . but then Turner wraps it all up into a new context that completely subverts our entire reading experience up until now. . . . Moira’s Pen isn’t an epilogue; if anything, it’s more of a prologue, a potential new beginning—whether for novels or stories, it’s too soon to say.” —
