Overview

He’s also still at large, which drives Miranda Lyonette crazy. While she’s been kicked out of the Spirit Court, Eli’s had plenty of time to plan his next adventure. But now the tables have turned, because Miranda has a new job — and an opportunity to capture a certain thief.

Things are about to get exciting for Eli. He’s picked a winner for his newest heist. His target: the Duke of Gaol’s famous “thief-proof” citadel. Eli knows Gaol is a trap, but what’s life without challenges? Except the Duke is one of the wealthiest men in the world, a wizard who rules his duchy with an iron fist, and an obsessive perfectionist with only one hobby: Eli.

It seems that everyone is hunting for Eli Monpress.

“A delightfully giddy romp of a novel.” — Karen Miller, author of The innocent mage

“Wry humor, engaging characters and full-tilt action.” — Gail Z. Martin, author of The Summoner

Meet the Author

Rachel Aaron was born in Atlanta, GA. After a lovely, geeky childhood full of books and public television, and then an adolescence spent feeling awkward about it, she went to the University of Georgia to pursue English Literature with an eye towards getting her PhD. Upper division coursework cured her of this delusion, and she graduated in 2004 with a BA and a job, which was enough to make her mother happy. She currently lives in a 70s house-of-the-future in Athens, GA with her loving husband, overgrown library, and small, brown dog. Find out more about the author at www.rachelaaron.net.

Not as great as its predecessor The Spirit Thief, but still rather delightful with a little more history behind Eli and his companions. I think Rachel Aaron has set up the stage rather nicely, and she seems to building the momentum at a satisfactory rate for the remainder of the series. The title is a bit misleading since the actual rebellion does not happen until later. After the leaps and bounds that Eli had us taking in the first book, I am a little disappointed with The Spirit Rebellion in that it takes a little longer for the action to explode on the pages. I was a little impatient for Miranda and Eli to butt heads again, waiting for them to realize that they were both in the same city, trying to figure out the Duke and his almost-oppressive hold on his city's spirits. It was like a cat-and-mouse game, but there was too much teasing and not enough pouncing! When everything starts to pick up the pace (and by that I mean everything starts to fall apart), The Spirit Rebellion reached the same breathless page-turning climax that I had been waiting for since I opened the book. Definitely well worth the wait - even though I didn't like it at the time! As I mentioned earlier, The Spirit Rebellion gives us a little more backstory on the characters, especially Eli, though it does not give us the whole picture yet. I definitely closed the book with more questions on how Eli turned out the way he did - but I think that was Ms. Aaron's intent to leave more questions to whet our appetites. Furthermore, Nico's predicament as a demonseed on the point of doomsday gets more spotlight, most likely to set up for the 3rd book The Spirit Eater. She is a ticking time-bomb, and I am both curious and terrified to find out how Ms. Aaron plans on handling Nico's future. I still LOVE the magic system that Ms. Aaron has built - and its complexity just gets better and better as the series progresses.Whereas The Spirit Thief has doors and trees just swooning at the feet of Eli's charisma, the spirits in The Spirit Rebellion are trying hard not to be to save themselves from punishment - it was amazing to learn why they are how they are and rewarding to see how they get out of their tricky situation! The Spirit Rebellion is quite enjoyable - it may seem slower-paced at first, but it definitely delivers the action on a silver platter by the end and leaves you wanting to come back for thirds!

This series is extremely entertaining, and I am definitely looking forward to anything this author puts out in the future! Highly original concepts, great characters, and extremely interesting plot-lines all add up to a must-read fantasy!
