    • This is the second book in the Kingfountain fantasy trilogy and, in my humble opinion, a vast improvement to the first installment.It wasn't that the first book was bad, in any sense of the word, it just contained too many inconsistencies of character for me to see past and fully immerse myself in the intricacies of the story. Here, however, the plot has progressed nine years and, with it, so have the characters. The older perspective made for a far more enjoyable reading experience.Seventeen-ye [...]


    • I am genuinely in awe; I liked the first book of the series but I was somehow puzzled by the fact that the main character was 8 years old. This book though follows Owen's adventures when he is 17. As a side note, I genuinely find Kiskaddon as musical and I smile every time I hear it. I listened to the book while I spent most of the day in the car and I was absolutely entertained. Owen, Evie, Etayne are just characters I like, clever, hard working, hiding secrets. The villains - that are not real [...]


    • 3.5 starsA stringently G-rated GoT series for the young-at-heart. A little bit of battle, a tiny death or two, some poisoning, unrequited love; it's all in there. This book picks up ten years after book one. Owen and Evie are young adults and representatives of the court. There is a new poisoner too. But what's this news about a usurper???Summer Fantasy Fest read #20


    • Each book deserves its own review, but I'm too busy moving on to book three to write one. Suffice to say if you got this far you're going to keep going.


    • How do I best explain my disappointment? This book isn't bad by any means. The writing style is fun and entertaining the plot isn't bad either, the intrigue and politics are fun as well It just wasn't very unique to me.While the first book was amazing exactly because the main character was a little child but the story wasn't a middle grade or kids book, we now have the traditional teenaged hero and it just didn't grip me nearly as much as the first book. Not to mention the whole Eve stuff. (vi [...]


    • first off, I want to say that I adore the names of the characters that this author has chosen. This is the second book of the king fountain trilogy and I liked it better than the first. This story is full of magic, battles, love and loyalty. A perfect setting for a story. The author paints a clear picture in my mind and I'm very in touch with the tale. I listened to the audio book and enjoyed the narrator's performance and voice technique. I look forward to the next book


    • This ending almost moved me to tears. I don't know what it is about these books. It just sneaks up on you and smacks you over the head with the feels. You read through not realizing how much you care until the last chapter, maybe even the last paragraph, and then you all of a sudden want to sob your eyes out and you don't know why. The Thief's Daughter picks up 10 years after the events of The Queen's Poisoner. Owen is a "man" (if you can call a 17 year old a man) leading battle charges and acti [...]


    • I just finished listening to this book on my latest long car ride and I LOVED it. I just can't get enough of this series or Owen! The first book was when Owen was just eight years old. In this book, Owen is 17 and has grown up so much. There is magic and adventure, friendships and enemies. It's fantastic. Clean and great for the whole family, I think. I can't wait to get started on the next book. Which I might read instead of listen to because I can't wait that long. :) Kindle Unlimited has both [...]



    • 4.5/5 StarsThis review and many more can be found on my blog: Feed Your Fiction AddictionOwen and Elysabeth have spent the past nine years together in the north and they have long assumed that they would one day be married. But when King Severn’s throne is being threatened, his plan for saving it involves quite a bit of sacrifice—on Owen and Elysabeth’s parts. Elysabeth is now promised to the enemy (or at least one of them) and she’s bound by duty and her love of her kingdom to follow th [...]


    • 4 stars!*Say nothing.The Thief’s Daughter picked up nine years after The Queen's Poisoner ended. The writing and the complex plot reflected those changes, which made this book even better than the first one.The change in Owen’s POV was a welcome one. As much as I liked him as an eight-year-old, there was a lot more to work with when he as a teenager. It left room for more secrets and lies and schemes, and we got just that.And there were soooo many secrets this time around! So many reveals an [...]


    • I quite enjoyed this. The world expanded greatly, and this was far more emotional than the first book. All of the characters grew and developed in fantastic ways. Evie and Owen absolutely broke my heart. I'm definitely looking forward to continuing with the series.


    • Reader thoughts: There are so many things I could say about this book. This book left me feeling empty (or maybe that's because I had cookie dough instead of lunch while I listened today). That's how you know it was a good book, I guess.The secrets. I can't talk about the rest of the book without mentioning all the secrets and disguises and lies. I am a big fan of secrets (extra tension!), but this was beyond almost all other novels I've read. People not only kept secrets from allies, but they k [...]


    • Excellent!!!!!!!!!Great storyline, loved the way that the characters were believable. Loved the way that they were portrayed as they got older and the problems that they had to endure as they aged.


    • Awesome book. I was so engrossed I simply consumed it in a couple days. It is fast paced and gets you thinking. Not to mention magic, characters you will love and full of emotion. I highly recommend this series.




    • I liked this book better than the first. It is stil not a great book, but it makes me want to know what happens in the next book.


    • When I first discovered this title in an audiobook format, I was only mildly interested in the story. I hadn't even read the first book, and I was merely looking for something that would offer enough action and intrigue to keep me awake for a long 6-hour drive home. But as soon as Owen's story began to unfold, I was instantly hooked. The Thief's Daughter carries the undertones of Arthurian legend and gallantry. I highly enjoyed Jeff Wheeler's narrative style - it is straightforward and direct, b [...]


    • The Thief's Daughter is the second installment of the Kingfountain series. I recommend this book for lovers of fantasy with a twisted sense of history and a touch of magic. This book continues the adventures of a much older Owen Kiskaden, Elizabeth Victoria Mortimer and some of the characters we met in book one. This book also contains new characters, enemies and challenges. I recommend this book as something light and different to read if you find yourself in a book rut or just want to try some [...]


    • In this 2nd book of the series, we catch up with Owen as a young man. He is the King's right hand. He has learned to use the fountain magic, and while his gift is not what king believed in book 1, it is powerful. In the course of doing the King's bidding, he meets the King's new poisoner and forms a friendship with her. The realm is faced with the threat of a returning heir (or imposter). The two must figure out the truth and protect the king's interests. Owen faces hard decisions between loyalt [...]


    • No spoilers.Second book in the series.Our heroes are now 17 years old, and are now adults, who have to deal with real feelings, responsibilities to their king, and the treacheries of other kingdomse backstory and magic system advances as well, in this surprisingly enjoyable series. looking forward to the nest entry.




    • You see the train comingYou see the train coming, but you just can't look away from the impending collision. Very creatively crafted story with the inevitable tragedy and heartbreak that comes with a hero's journey. I enjoyed book 2 and look forward to the next one.



    • Much, much better than the previous book. Much of the improvement is due to Owen Kiskaddon, who has become far more vocal and far, far more active. Whereas before he was scarcely in danger at all, now he seems to be under threat constantly, rarely knowing who he can trust or what he should do. Even better, there are those who dislike and distrust Owen for his political power and his Fountain-blessed power. All these things give him many more obstacles to deal with than he had in the first book, [...]


    • I just love it when books in the middle of the series don't suffer. I know that we have all read those middle of the series books where everything is so dull and it's just all info dump. I can't think of any off the top of my head but I know that I have. Okay, so in an effort to be a more efficient reader, I have started taking little notes and writing my feelings about the book. This is an effort to pay attention to the book more. I have a terrible habit of glossing over things sometimes and no [...]


    • This book was well researched and well written. there were just a couple of things that made me give it four stars rather than five. The first being this (along with the first) book style-wise continually reminded me of the author Robin Hobb and her Farseer trilogy. As someone who also enjoys history, I thought this book was entertaining and well researched. The second thing that bothered me though was that some of the names were completely different while others were incredibly similar. I wish [...]


    • Ugh. These book gave me the feels, as the kids would say. The Thief's Daughter jumps forward nine years from The Queen's Poisoner, and Owen and Evie's adorable friendship has blossomed into a deeper love. Only they can't act on it, because 1) it's medieval times and they ain't engaged yet, 2) they're followed by a chaperone everywhere they go, and 3) the king has other plans for the two of them. So the whole book was basically just me going:But alas, the king has other plans for these two, and t [...]
