FANTASY REVIEW: The Legend of Eli Monpress - Rachel Aaron

Release Date: 02/02/12


Eli Monpress is talented. He's charming. And he's a thief. But not just any thief. He's the greatest thief of the age, and he's also a wizard. And with the help of his partners - a swordsman with the most powerful magic sword in the world, and a demonseed who can step through shadows and punch through walls - he's going to put his grand plan into effect. Because Eli won't rest until he's amassed a fortune. Step one in his plan is to increase the bounty on his head, so he'll need to steal some big things. He'll start small for now though: he'll just steal something that no one will miss - at least for a while. Like a king ...This omnibus edition contains: THE SPIRIT THIEF, THE SPIRIT REBELLION and THE SPIRIT EATER


The compendium of Rachel’s three Eli Monpress tales which not only means that you get to enjoy them back to back but something that also means you get sheer value for money. It’s wonderfully inventive, gives the fantasy reader a story with an overall arc that not only impresses with the sheer scope but generates character growth throughout that keeps the reader fascinated from start to finish.

Finally add into this a cracking debut that not only announced the author to the reader but sets a wonderful standard for others to follow and overall it’s a series that you really have to read.
