From Modern Mythcraft to Magical Surrealism



Thief Eyes by Janni Lee Simner

Choosing a setting rarely seen in English-language YA fiction, Simner brings the remote, quake-racked island vividly to life. She inhabits her Iceland with complex, sympathetic characters who pay steep costs for the actions of others and themselves. She skillfully blends ancient Icelandic legend (specifically, Njal’s Saga) and Scandinavian myth with the modern world. In sum, Thief Eyes is a timeless fantasy
