Sassy Heroine : Zoey Wharton
Ok, I wont bore you with writing about how amazing Lexi Blake books are.. you can read about that in any of these posts: Just a Taste, Close Cover, and Lost Hearts ( Memento Mori) I will just get to the point and wax poetic about this book and the Thieves series!
Lexi Blake writes some amazing Sassy Heroines and Zoey is one of the top ones. Zoey is thief, she and her crew steal things important to the paranormal world. She is brash and takes the world by the horns ( quite literally sometimes). I love that we get to read about Zoeys confidence but see her wrestle with her choices. This story follows Zoey on a hilarious adventure of stealing an artifact that will change the course of not only Zoeys life but the lives of all those close to her. This is the start of an amazing series that will suck you in on page one. Side note if you like audio books then highly recommend this one, Kitty Bang does an amazing job with the narration.
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.
