Book 1 of 2 in the Legend of Eli Monpress Collection Series. Rachel Aaron is absolutely brilliant and from what I can see, her trademark is books that start out energetically, with humor, flowing into quirky action and humor. And then, as you read the books in the series, the true story is built in the background. Subtle cues and personalities grow into complex plots and heroes who stand in the breach in spite of themselves. Aaron writes of sacrificial service in pursuit of justice for others, doing right because its the right thing to do, unlikely heroes, and redeemable demons.

I love this book Book lover. Harry is so dumb at this chapter (so typical 15 year old boy). Amazing book read 10 times never got tired of it once?? Bianca

The Master of the Exchequer smiled tightly and rubbed his shoulder. Eli Monpress -he picked up the wanted poster that was lying on the table, where the roughly sketched face of a handsome man with dark, shaggy hair grinned boyishly up at them- bounty, paid dead or alive, twenty thousand Council Gold Standard Weights. Wanted on a hundred and fifty-seven counts of grand larceny against a noble person, three counts of fraud, one charge of counterfeiting, and treason against the Rector Spiritualis.

Rachel Aaron’s debut fantasy series is so addictively entertaining and fun that I blasted through all three books in the first omnibus in four days. It had been quite a while since I have so much fun reading a series, one which also keeps getting better as it progresses. Cocky charming thief, grumpy swordsman, mysterious girl with mega fighting skills, all of them superpowered in one way or another.

And give him Eli’s letter, she added to herself. Her hand went to the square of paper in her front pocket. Banage gave her a withering look. You were sent to Mellinor with a specific mission: to apprehend Monpress and bring him to Zarin

And give him Eli’s letter, she added to herself. She still hadn’t opened it, but today she could hand it over and be done. You were sent to Mellinor with a specific mission: to apprehend Monpress and bring him to Zarin. Instead, here you are, empty-handed, riding a wave of rumor that, not only did you work together with the thief you were sent to catch, but you took the treasure of Mellinor for yourself. Rumors you confirmed in your own report.

He stopped on his heel and spun to see Josef, his swordsman, sitting twenty paces back in the middle of the path with Nico, Josef’s constant shadow, sitting beside him.

She stood up in one lovely, graceful motion, cradling the boy in her arms. You shall be my star, she whispered, pressing her white lips against the sleeping boy’s forehead. The boy stirred as she touched him, turning toward her in his sleep, and the White Lady laughed, delighted

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 but no magical ability of his own, and a demonseed who can step through shadows and punch through walls - he's going to put his plan into effect.The first step is to increase the size of the bounty on his head, so he'll need to steal some big things. But he'll start small for now. He'll just steal something that no one will miss - at least for a while.Like a king. The Legend of Eli Monpress includes the novels: The Spirit Thief, The Sprit Rebellion, and The Spirit Eater.

one of my favorite books of all time. I cant even begin to express how much I loved this series. In fact the only other series I could compare it to would be Harry Potter but even that wasn’t a good enough comparison for me because I knew what happened in Harry Potter before I read it for he first time. The Spirit Thief through The Spirit Eater are very funny and well written and full of twists and turns that you will love if you are a avid fantasy reader. The first three introduces you too the three main characters Eli Monpress, Josef Ligton and Niko as well as several supporting characters who learn and grow through out the series. (Reminder these are my personal opinions and I am in no way representing the author of the book, the publishing company or any franchises attached to the books I review.)
Originality- I would say it is very original and in almost no way encompasses the typical fantasy. I didn’t see a bunch of clichés or predictable plot lines and the story itself didn’t center around any one persons struggles and feelings. My favorite thing here is that as the reader I was able to sympathize with everyones story and couldn’t pick a side, I wanted everyone to win and everyones dreams to come true because they all deserved it.

Readability- This series doesn’t have a defined age recommendation so that right there tells you that it the subject matter within can be grasped by young readers and appreciated by adults. There is a lot of humor in all of the books as well as serious tones and life lessons that all age groups have experienced at some point. There were no real curse words or inappropriate scenes that would make your grandmother blush and while I usually find that to be annoyingly innocent in most books, here I found it didn’t distract from the story at all.

Topic- The main topic in this series is hard to pinpoint because there is so much hidden literary messages and is open to reader interpretation. The series has everything including racism, gender role reversals, overpowering authority, rising above your social standing, independence despite social norms and so much more I am probably missing because I have only read the series one time.

Wow Factor- This series really knocked me out of my chair with each chapter. I will admit that in comparison with the rest of the series the first two are more of an introduction to the real action. I couldn’t predict the ending at all and the one I got was perfect. I loved all of the characters and their stories and I wish Rachel would write more of what happens after because there are still a few questions left unanswered and who knows, maybe she will.

Predictability- I found very little of this series to be predictable because the basic concept of a story is usually good vs. evil, right vs. wrong and so on- there were parts of this book that had be freaking out about how our heros were going to over come a challenge.

Over all score: 10- 10

As I said before, I love this series and everything about it. I have read some other books by Rachel Aaron and she is quickly rising to be one of my favorite authors. She is an amazing writer and her stories are full of passion and adventure and my favorite element of all: Magic! Read this series immediately, if you are looking for a fresh, fantasy full of excitement and fun.

The three books contained in this omnibus volume were such fun to read. The character of "the greatest thief in the world," Eli Monpress, is a hoot, and I love the way he plays off of his would-be captor, the Spiritualist Miranda. While it's true that spunky young female characters are becoming a bit of a cliche, Aaron avoids the cliche by portraying Miranda as naive, overly rigid in her beliefs, and often incredibly annoying. It is Miranda's single-minded quest to capture Eli that often causes the most trouble for everyone, but, in the end, it is her unwavering loyalty to her spirits and her ability to finally open herself up to other possibilities that make her a terrific character. The other characters, especially Eli's two very unusual partners in crime, are fascinating as well. I'll definitely be reading the final two books in the series.

I purchased this book because I absolutely loved her Paradox series under her Rachel Bach pen name and I enjoy fantasy as well as science fiction. Unfortunately, the Eli Monpress series is not just written in another genre, but in another style. The setting and magic system were great, as was the opening scene, but I could not get past the continuously shifting character perspectives. She seemed to be trying to make them all main characters and this made it difficult to care what happened to any on of them. So, overall a brilliant idea but poorly executed. If you enjoy science fiction, I highly recommend looking up Rachel Bach.

"He's going to steal a king." Eli Monpress is a character we've loved before we ever met him. In his spirit-rich world, a wizard thief doesn't just con people into helping him, he sweet-talks doors, wagons, and everything else into giving him a hand. He's brilliant, lives for a challenge, and is absolutely never serious-- until the stakes start going up.

On one hand, the series is a tasty tale of heists, trickery, and the evil forces that Eli's crew always foil along the way. On the other, there's always the sense that the characters have bigger secrets than how to raise Eli's bounty. Why is his bodyguard determined *not* to use the biggest sword he carries? Why's little Nico with the group, and did she just teleport? Why is the "Shepherdess" the most powerful card in a game of Daggerback? And of course there's Miranda, the fearless, idealistic, but never stupid young wizard who has the impossible job of chasing Eli.

Rachel Aaron writes from a view of sheer fun. Her heroes are a delight, her villains twirl the right moustaches or hold grayer territory nicely, and there's always another twist or escalation on the next page, both in today's adventure and the sense that there's a larger picture starting to form. Fans of Lupin's schemes or Shonen Jump swordfighting, and many similar brands of anime, will find whole layers of a world made just for them.
