Eamonn never wanted to be a thief.
So when a risky mission goes awry and he receives the chance of a lifetime, he leaves behind everything, even his newfound family in the Thieves’ Guild, to pursue an apprenticeship as an honest merchant.
Traveling the country means he sees and hears everything. Civil unrest, rebellions against the monarchies, and rumors of a usurper bent on uniting the provinces under himself with a mythical form of magic. Few suspect he’s not chasing a dead end, including village girl Leyna, a believer in the magic of ancient histories. Eamonn’s skeptical heart is also swayed once he finds himself the tyrant’s target, unknowingly possessing the key to harness the dangerous power.
To protect it, Eamonn's only choice is to flee. But now that it’s the mission of his former brothers in the Guild to hunt him down, keeping magic out of their hands might be harder than either Leyna or Eamonn thought possible. If they fall, though, their world does too.

The Thief's Relic is a good debut for author Angela Knotts Morse. I am not a huge fan of the fantasy genre but I enjoyed this one. I was captivated with this story right from the start. I was intrigued with Eamonn and liked watch him grow throughout the book. I loved his friendship with Dorlyss and taking a journey with them all through the land and seeing everything they saw and encountered. It was slow at times but it quickly picked up and held attention.
I am giving The Thief's Relic four stars. I recommend it for readers who enjoy reading fantasy fiction. I will be look forward to more by Angela Knotts Morse in the future.
I received a digital copy of The Thief's Relic from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
