This is a super short review because Thief! is a super short story and because talking too much about it means I’d have to include spoilers for The Thief, which is something I really don’t want to do! (And also because I’m running out of things to schedule while I’m working I’M SO BUSY I’M SORRY, the holidays are crazy work time.)
If you’ve already read The Thief but haven’t yet given this super short (and free!) story a chance, then I highly, highly give it a quick go, because it really gives you a good look into Gen and his background, along with a few other characters that I can’t mention because they’re spoilers for the end of The Thief. 😀
It’s more of a look at Gen’s family, too, and his relationship with the extended cousins and brothers and sisters and such that he mentions in the first book of the series, so, while it’s not explicitly necessary to read it for the series itself, it helps give Gen more character and show his development to where he is when we start The Thief. I think it’s a good read!
Give it a go, if you haven’t already. 😉
Thanks for reading!
