Publisher's Summary

Since the moment I was ripped from my mother's womb, I've been an outcast among my own kind. The Sidhe might possess magical Gifts, unbelievable wealth, and unfathomable power, but I don't want a thing to do with them. I ran away from their lands in the Highlands of Scotland when I was 11 years old, and I've never looked back. I don't need a clan. I've got my own family of highly skilled thieves who mean more to me than any Sidhe ever could.

Unfortunately for me, the playboy heir to the Moncrieffe Clan has something I desperately need. To get it back, I'm going to have to plunge myself back into that world, no matter what the consequences may be. I suppose it's just as well I have a sense of humor. I think I'm going to need it.

Good Read

Where does Gifted Thief rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Top 10

Any additional comments?

Despite some negative commits I found this to be a well balanced book. It contained action, romance and a creative plot. I liked that the book had a good portion of all 3, Which is hard to find. Usually this genre is dominated by sex or no sex and all action. It also felt that it would be a good read if you were 16 or 60. In addition, the narrator did a great job for having a British accent. In some cases the accent can be to harsh and distracting but hers wasn't.

This should listed in YA or Teens.

Wow this story was lame and poorly written. It was confusing and all over the place. I don't even know how to review this book. I am embarrassed I even finished it. I thought it was going to get better and make sense. It didn't. What a waste of time.

Also, this book should be in the YA or 11-13 teens section Paranormal. Not Romance Contemporary.

As for the narration, I like Saskia Maarleveld. She does a good job.

Loved it!

I was a little wary because of the other reviews but I really loved this book. This was more of a fantasy than a romance but it was well balanced had some of silly humor which I enjoyed and a strong female lead. l really liked the narrator as well. I am definitely going to purchase the next book!

narrator ruined it

Was it a good book? yes. Was plot good?.. not too bad. It kept me interested and would definitely read book 2. "READ book 2". I don't think I would listen to the narrators strong accent again. I did not come across this in any of Helen Harper's other book. Saskia did a great job on them. But I had to concentrate real hard on understanding certain sentences on this one. Which is not relaxing at all. Please just read it how you normally would Saskia.

Also the corny jokes... works for my 10 year old.

Fun like a candy bar, and about as nutritious!

If you are looking for a fun quick read, get this book. the narration was well done (lots of great voices), and the plot moves rather quickly. The story is a bit if a romp. Lots of flirty moments, and a heroine a unique sense of humor. Perfect for a Sunday afternoon read, you don't have to work too hard. Lovable characters. This is the beginning to a fun series. The ending is definitely a cliffhanger.

Very much a YA

I don't know why I bought this book..it must have been a Daily Deal or 'Two Fer' .. in any case, it's going back.

I read YA at times but this didn't hold my attention at all. I won't even save it for my grand daughter, who often takes my YA picks after I'm done.

MY opinion? Save your credit and read the reviews.

Better than expected.. love strong female characte

Better than expected.. love strong female characters... However I don't know why I'm female characters hello times a trade pretty stupid and selfish and self centered I run across quite a few strong female characters that didn't have to have these traits I'm not saying perfect it us portraying human or human like characters.

I was surprised at the quality of writing

I wasn't optimistic when I started because I have read several romances in this genre that are just sappy angst fests with references to vampires. This, however, was well written with a great story that leaned heavily on just enough real folklore and diversity. The characters were all multidimensional and well written individuals. The story made me immediately look for book 2. The performance was pleasant and engaging to the point that I forgot I was listening to a narrator and just saw the story unfold. I am a fan of this author and this reader. WELL DONE!

Unusual and captivating.

I did love this book. it took a little while to get into as I was getting to know the characters but once I did, it moved fast and was quite an adrenaline rush! all I would say is the reading was a little bland. I found that sentences which should have been accentuated by the narrator were at times falling a little flat. That said, it was an original storyline and I'm definitely intrigued enough to purchase the sequel!

Good easy listening

I have read all four in this series. I would say good easy listening nothing exceptional but worth the money paid.
I enjoyed the byplay between the two main characters Integrity and Byron (love the name Integrity, by the way) and the father daughter relationship with Taylor. I so understanding that Bryon can not/will not see the truth.
Enough action to keep the books from being slow and enough emotion to keep the story real without reveling in anks.
I like stories that end correctly and this one did by book four.
I will check out other Helen Harper books.

Gripping and entertaining

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

A story that draws you in and keeps you interested.

What did you like best about this story?

The whole setup is an interesting one, including how society is organised works (or doesn't) for the different levels.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I was certainly keen to get back to it.

Really good, funny

I didn't think it would be this good but i am pleasantly surprised, it's fast paced, witty and wow i love Integrity's bad jokes lol. She is feisty and very crafty being a thief and all. The narrative is excellent, Saskia Maarleveld is awesome, she brings the characters too life. Thank you x

Wonderful Voice

The narrator did a fantastic job. I think this is the best audiobook I have listened to. A wonderful, magical and humorous story. The characters are fantastic and the fact that events play it in modern day was very fun.

Ignore the negative reviews

I am really glad I ignored the many negative reviews this book had, I really enjoyed this one, particularly because despite my age I loved all the lame jokes as it fitted with my sense of humour perfectly. Someone complained about the accent saying they found the narrator difficult to understand, for me as an Australian with English relations, the accents used were quite clear and easy to follow, they also reflected the setting and characters background so we’re very appropriate, only adding to the enjoyment of the story. I enjoyed this book so much I have already bought the next one and eagerly await finishing this review so I can get listening. 🐨
