Bestseller Thief! Author Megan Whalen Turner Chad Cameron is a Ebook Megan Whalen Turner is the author of short stories and novels for children, teenagers and adults She has won the LA Times Book Award for Young Adult LIterature, a Boston Globe Horn Book Honor and a Newbery Honor She won the Mythopoeic Award and was shortlisted twice for the Andre Norton Award.. A short story about a younger Eugenides from the magazine Disney Adventures.. The best Book Thief! I've never written a proper review for any of the Queen's Thief books I have read (even though I love them so, however much portions of the story make my heart ache), but seeing and reading this short story inspired me a bit to give some of my impressions of this story and the main character, Eugenides. (Note: Here there be SPOILERS for the novels themselves, so read with caution if you have yet to read said novels for yourself.)It's strange that I would come across this short story because, years and years ago, I actually read Disney Adventures (the monthly magazine in which this short story was first published) quite often -- but, if I did read this story back then, I sadly don't remember it. Of course, after reading this story now, I have some excuse: this prequel short story is best read and enjoyed if you have already followed Eugenides (the Queen's Thief of Eddis) in his novel adventures. Why? Well...you have more reason to understand (and admire) the kind of character (and thief) Gen is if you have known him prior. Just as this story illustrates, he is not a thief for personal gain: instead, he steals (and risks his safety and well-being) for the sake of others (or, in this case, to punish others) and his kingdom. Though that makes him a bit of a Robin Hood-esque thief, I am much more a Eugenides fan than a Robin Hood fan.Oddly, my eyes cued in on this sentence even amid some of the wit and humor to be found in this short story:[Gen] couldn't open the fingers on his right hand to achieve an entirely satisfying wave, and he had no sooner begun waving the fingers of the other hand when Stenides shook him hard and his hands dropped.If you've read the second Queen's Thief novel, The Queen of Attolia (which, in the Author's Note of this story, Turner mentions had already been written when this story was originally published), then you might understand why this sentence -- so harmless in context -- caused a wave of grief to come over me as I read it. In just a few short years, Gen would no longer have that right hand to help him in his thieving exploits. If he had known that, would he have done things differently in his life as a thief, or would he have trudged on regardless? Because of who Gen is as a character, I like to think that the latter option -- however painful and arduous -- would have been his way because that's one thing Gen has never compromised on: he is who he is, and he doesn't let what fate or the gods might have in store define his own choices for himself...even if that may lead to repercussions and consequences on his end.Needless to say, Eugenides is the type of character -- the type of hero -- I will gladly follow until the very end.
