Stealing another galactic secret will get her arrested, but playing by the rules might just get her killed.
At twenty-three, Renna Carrizal is the most notorious thief in the galaxy. There's just one problem - all she wants is to get out of the business.
But after Renna rescues an injured boy on her final job, she finds herself on the run from the mob instead of enjoying retirement. She unwittingly becomes ensnared by MYTH, a top-secret galactic protection agency who offer her a choice - either help them on their latest mission, or spend the rest of her life on a prison ship.
Forced to work under the watchful eye of handsome but arrogant Captain Finn, Renna learns the former mercenary-turned-hero has a few dirty secrets himself. As Renna works to discover the truth about Finn's past and keep the tantalizing man at arm's length, she unearths a plot to create an unstoppable army. The target? The human star fleet.
Now Renna must pull off the biggest job of her career - saving the galaxy. And maybe even herself.

"Renna should have known better than to trust Boyd when he said the job would be easy." (page 1, line 1)
An exciting storyline, great characters, fabulous writing - so much to love about The Star Thief.

I loved Renna. Daring, talented, quick, unapologetic, criminal genius Renna. She has so many facets to her character that even though we spend the entire book with her we've only begun to scratch her surface. She's the kind of character I love to read about.

The mysterious Finn... I spent half the book hating him while begrudgingly respecting the guy. Grey eventually gives us some insight into his past and the choices he made, making me understand him a bit better, but like Renna, there's still a lot we don't know about him.

The storyline is exciting - abductions, various battles, betrayal, sacrifice and an ending that makes me desperate to know what happens next.

Grey has done a fabulous job of setting up the series, I'm still dying to know about the Star, about Renna, about Finn - why he did what he did, the details of the conspiracy and what's going to happen next.

Doesn't it sound fabulous? Now go buy The Star Thief!

  1. Like you I love reading about characters that are not one dimensional. I love slowly unraveling the layers of the characters and the story. This sounds like a really awesome book and after your review I am very eager to read it.
