When dealing with demons, the devil’s in the details…

Stealing mystical and arcane artifacts is a dangerous business, especially for a human, but Zoey Wharton is an exceptional thief. The trick to staying alive is having friends in all the wrong places. While having a witch and a werewolf on the payroll helps, being partners with a vampire really opens doors.

Zoey and Daniel were childhood sweethearts until a violent car crash took his life and left her shattered. When Daniel returned from the grave as a vampire, his only interest in Zoey was in keeping her safely apart from the secrets of his dark world. He has vowed to protect her, but his heart seems as cold as the night he calls home.

Five years later, a mysterious new client named Lucas Halfer offers Zoey a fortune to steal the Light of Alhorra. The search for the Light leads Zoey into the arms of an earthbound faery prince. Devinshea Quinn sweeps her off her feet, showing her everything the supernatural world has to offer, but Daniel still calls to her heart.

As the true nature of the Light is revealed, Zoey discovers Halfer is a demon and much more than money is at stake. Per her contract, she must give him the Light or spend an eternity in Hell. What’s a girl to do except fight for her soul…and her heart.

MY REVIEW

 

As a thief by trade, Zoey Wharton is determined to make a name for herself. No job is too big for the daughter of one of the craftiest cons on the streets. The jobs Zoey takes on are certainly no small task. Armed with a team of ‘unusual origins’, Zoey sets out to steal the Light of Alhorra. The payout on this job comes at a time when each of the team members is feeling the pinch of a shrinking pocketbook. Zoey blindly accepts the job offer without researching the terms of the agreement.

Zoey quickly learns if a deal is too good to be true then check out all the loopholes. With a million dollars at stake, Zoey failed to realize what making a bargain with a demon would cost her. The Light of Alhorra is guarded by the Fae, and failure to produce the object puts Zoey’s soul in jeopardy. Having a vampire, werewolf and witch on your crew has its advantages. This job will prove to be to be detrimental to all the parties involved in the heist.

What a FANTASTIC book!!! I have to be honest and say that I did not realize that Lexi Blake wrote in the paranormal genre. Previously I absorbed all of her romance books. Clearly – I was missing out on a MAJOR chunk of her backlist!! Steal The Light is a truly engaging novel that dabbled in all aspects of paranormal life. Zoey might be human, but her life clearly revolves around all aspects of the other realms.

Fans of Lexi’s writing style will love the love triangle that is presented in this novel. Zoey and Daniel were childhood sweethearts. Their paths were altered when Daniel was killed, but returned as a vampire. This has affected the future that the two planned out for themselves. Then Devinshea, Fertility Priest to the Fae, enters Zoey’s life. Two loves that both hold a stake in Zoey’s future. It is a romance unlike your ‘typical’ love triangle. I seriously couldn’t get enough!!

There are plenty of secondary characters that add to the plot in this first book of the Thieves Series. Each presenting their own layer to plot, and giving you a tease of what is yet to come. There are demons, Vampire Councils, and a ménage of supernatural creatures that will entertain you. At the root of it all is the quest for the thieves to secure their next job.

The humor and snarkiness present in this tale will leave you giggling at times. It’s a journey through a fantasy world that will definitely have you envious of Zoey and her consorts. I simply couldn’t put this book down!! A great series starter that hooked me from beginning to end!!
