The Thief Queen's Daughter by Elizabeth Haydon

Main Character: Charles Magnus Ven Polypheme--"Ven" for short
Time period:
Genre: YA Fiction, Fantasy
Series: The Lost Journals of Ven Polypheme #2

I am enjoying this series. The first one did a good job of introducing the situation and characters, and this one takes that introduction and runs with it. Ven remains a likable fellow, as does Char, who remains faithful to the captain's order to watch out for Ven. We learn a bit about Ida's background and she becomes a much more sympathetic character because of it. There's even some softening of her prickliness as she begins to learn that there is some value in making friends.
