Gen is in prison. He is one of the few people that the king hates, so Gen is in a prison with maximum security. That means extra chains, guards, and no outside time. Gen is sitting in his cell thinking about how he could escape when 2 guards come in and drags him out. When Gen adjusts to the brightness he sees the king’s magus. The magus wants Gen to steal something. Gen asks what it is , but the magus refuses to tell. The magus says if Gen steals this for the magus then he would make sure that Gen wouldn’t go back to prison. Gen quickly agreed and asked when they would begin the journey. The magus says soon. The next day Gen is dragged out of his cell again to meet three other people. They were Pol, Ambiades, and Sophos. The magus says that they were all going on the journey. Will Gen be able to steal the item? Are Gen’s loyalties even in the right place? Read the whole book to find out.
My least favorite part of the book is when some details randomly pop up even though they weren't in the book before. What I did like about the book was the stories of the gods in the book. I also liked the twists in the end. My favorite part of the book was the extras section that explained the origins of the book. This book is one of my favorites and I think people interested in mythology and drama would really like this book
