Book Blurb:  She’s a thief. He’s the guy she just stole from. Now they’ll have to work together.

On an average night, seventeen-year-old Ridley uses her forbidden magic to steal from the wealthy and secretly give to those in need. But tonight, someone follows her home—and ends up murdered outside her apartment. The guy who happens to be too close to the scene? Archer Davenport, heir to the city’s largest fortune. He’s also the guy Ridley just stole from. Archer reveals a dangerous truth: the artifact Ridley stole from him contains secrets that could put many lives in danger. Which means Ridley has to get it back. And Archer doesn’t trust her to do it alone. Together, they’ll journey into the hidden parts of the city, searching for the artifact while Ridley tries to unravel the mystery of the murder. She’s determined to find answers. Even if it means putting her own life at risk. A near-future city, forbidden magic, and plenty of secrets.

Review:   I must say I am looking forward to the other books in this series. I thoroughly enjoyed the magic world that the author has created, and her main characters are extremely well crafted.
The story is one of fantasy set in a dystopian world where magic is forbidden. It has great twists and surprises, some of which I didn’t see coming. The “love interest” between Archer and Ridley is slowly building, as their past, not of the romantic kind, gets in the way of their trusting each other. Her friends, past and present, give Ridley added depth. The mystery of what the object she stole actually is, had me turning the pages. I am waiting for November 7th when the second book is scheduled to be released.
I recommend this book and give it Four Stars.
