What do you do when your soul mate turns out to be a thief? Steal her, of course.
Phoenix was raised within the Community, a gang of thieves with paranormal powers, under the control of a harsh master known as the Seer. The notion that there's a soul mate out there for every person with a paranormal gift is mere myth in Phoenix's world. That is until the Seer gives Phoenix the details of her next target, Yves Benedict. He's more than just her next victim, he is her destiny.
To be together, Phoenix must break away from the Community, but resistance against the Seer puts them both in mortal danger. Phoenix has never trusted anyone before, now it's time to trust Yves with her life.
What the Narrator Says
"I absolutely loved narrating this trilogy. YAF is a guilty pleasure of mine and I really fell for all of the Benedict brothers! I think my favourite is Stealing Phoenix - she's such a fab character, full of fire (to match Yves's) and really feisty. But the big question is - who's your favourite Benedict boy? I think mine is probably Zed for his dark moodiness although I really like Xavier's great sense of humour." Lucy Price-Lewis on narrating Joss Stirling's Benedict Brothers Triology.
Would you try another book from Joss Stirling and/or Lucy Price-Lewis?
Yes, I would
Would you recommend Stealing Phoenix to your friends? Why or why not?
Yes and no. yes, the world created is great but the main plot is flawed
Any additional comments?
The main plot hinged on the main female character's poor and naive choice to escape her intended which was the start of all the problems. There was no great harm to her at that point, so why escape? pointless and naive. a different plot with the same characters would make a better story.
I dub her street-wise to the point of being naive.

This is Yves and Phoenix story - they are brought together by crime and after convincing Phoenix that she is worth more than the life she was brought up on by the Sea,r they are destined to live happily ever after. However, they have to get to that point first and this story has action and conniving tactics that bring evil and good together and enjoy the ride to see who will win the overall fight.
Joss Stirling has created a world of likeable characters that are easy to care for. This book is a fun enjoyable read and has plenty of laugh aloud moments which are shear delight.
Definitely going straight on to the third book to see what's next for the Benedict family.
