After the Rain Has Fallen by Le Meg
He's the greatest thief in the high Sahara, and he makes his living stealing from the royal family. A glittering new necklace has caught his attention, and the only thing that stands between him and his new prize is the Princess it was made for.

Ali Thinks: Le Meg has done it again. You may be wondering: what is "it," anyway? "It" would be the exquisite combination of an exciting plot, out-of-this-world characters, and immaculate prose.

The story starts off as Takis, a thief, brakes into a palace to steal Princess Xenia's necklace-- a necklace which was given to her by the man she is promised to marry. Le Meg sets up the scene perfectly, giving insight to both Takis' life as a thief and what drove him to try and snatch the necklace in the first place.

Takis' character, quite frankly, is awesome. He's clearly intelligent, and he's also meticulous, two traits he definitely needs in his questionable profession. Despite the fact that he makes his living by stealing, he's so cool that it's hard not to adore him. Even the cold Princess Xenia would agree.

Princess Xenia, according to Takis, is a very icy person. What he doesn't realize until he meets her, however, is that she is quite clever and observant. She has her intentions, just as he does, and they are presented in a way that makes it easy to understand why she does what she does for him.

Other than portraying her characters in a lovable, realistic way, Le Meg's writing is nothing short of brilliant. The grammar is perfection, the words flow together like a delicate river, and it's clear how much effort and time she pours into what she writes.

It's now your turn to experience "After the Rain Has Fallen," and the joy of "it." So go on and click the link, we all know you want to.
