Waterstones Says

When the light-fingered Eugenides winds up in the king's prison, his only chance of freedom takes the form of a dangerous quest for a legendary object in the first instalment of Turner's rollicking fantasy series.

Eugenides, can steal anything - or so he says. Then his boasting lands him in the king's prison, and his chances of escape look slim.

So when the king's magus invites him on a seemingly impossible quest to steal a legendary object and win back his freedom, Gen in no position to refuse.

The magus has plans for his king and his country. Gen has plans of his own.
