Self-proclaimed “World's Greatest Thief", Whitney Fierstown, has yet to find a trinket or treasure he couldn't steal. He nearly pulls off the heist of the century by snatching the Glass Crown off the dying king's head until rotten luck throws him into the path of Torsten Unger, a steadfast knight determined to save his vulnerable kingdom. Torsten offers this ultimatum: rot and die in a dank cell or join him on a dangerous expedition and put his skills to good use.

I felt story could have been shorter to leave out meandering. I really never warmed up to Whitney, braggert, talk constantly with not much of use to say. A theft with similar qualities but not so much a motor mouth about nothing at all would have made this a 4-5 star rating instead

I personally do not care for Romance novels and though I enjoyed this story, I have trouble with the way the main characters are Sooo perfect for each other and compliment each other. Life is Never like this except in Fantasies and stories.

Human laws do not apply in the territory controlled by the Others - vampires, shape-shifters, and paranormal beings even more deadly. And this is a fact that humans should never, ever forget.... After her divorce, Vicki DeVine took over a rustic resort near Lake Silence - in a human town that is not human controlled. Towns like Vicki's have no distance from the Others, the dominant predators that rule most of the land and all of the water throughout the world. And when a place has no boundaries, you never really know what's out there watching you.

Having to wait until March 2019 for the next book in this series will be quit difficult because I want to continue the story. Instead of a Strong female hero we start with a damaged woman a lot of people will be able to identify with. This actually made me loke the story even more!!

Evil is most assuredly afoot - and Britain’s fate rests in the hands of an alluring renegade... and a librarian. These are dark days indeed in Victoria’s England. Londoners are vanishing, then reappearing, washing up as corpses on the banks of the Thames, drained of blood and bone. Yet the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences - the Crown’s clandestine organization whose bailiwick is the strange and unsettling - will not allow its agents to investigate. Fearless and exceedingly lovely Eliza D. Braun, however, with her disturbing fondness for dynamite, refuses to let the matter rest...
