Eli Monpress is clever, he's determined, and he's in way over his head.

First rule of thievery: don't be a hero. When Eli broke the rules and saved the Council Kingdoms, he thought he knew the price, but resuming his place as the Shepherdess's favorite isn't as simple as bowing his head. Now that she has her darling back, Benehime is setting in motion a plan that could destroy everything she was created to protect, and even Eli's charm might not be enough to stop her. But Eli Monpress always has a plan, and with disaster rapidly approaching, he's pulling in every favor he can think of to make it work, including the grudging help of the Spirit Court's new Rector, Miranda Lyonette.

But with the world in panic, the demon stirring, and the Lord of Storms back on the hunt, it's going to take more than luck and charm to pull Eli through this time. He's going to have to break a few more rules and work with some old enemies if he's going to survive.

Review quote

Praise for The Spirit Thief:

Fans of Scott Lynch's Lies of Locke Lamora (2006) will be thrilled with Eli Monpress. - Booklist (Starred Review)

A romp of a lighthearted fantasy starring an absolutely darling rogue. --- Publishers Weekly

Full of humor and suspense, this action-packed fantasy adventure is highly enjoyable. --- SciFiChick.com

A charming and fast-paced caper with intriguing worldbuilding and interesting characters. --- RT Book Reviews (4 stars)

This book was a nice surprise and a complete winner for me. Rachel Aaron has written a fun story which can be best described as Terry Brooks Meets Scott Lynch in a lighter vein. --- Fantasy Book Critic

I read all three! I LOVED them! Can't wait for the next one, it needs to be out NOW!!!! - Felicia Day
