Fast paced, entertaining and thrilling

Thieves Gambit follows Rosalyn ‘Ross’ Quest, a 17-year-old highly skilled thief from a family of professional thieves. She is invited to compete in an underground thieving contest. She accepts because her mother has been kidnapped and she desperately needs the ransom. This story hits the ground running and takes the reader on a wild ride filled with twists, turns, high stakes heists, danger, tentative alliances, betrayal and exotic locations. It has a very cinematic feel to it, and, unsurprisingly, the film rights have been bought. I liked Ross. She was badass with a strong moral center (other than stealing, of course). The other characters were distinct and memorable. Thieves Gambit is a fast-paced, fun, entertaining, thrilling read. I definitely burned the midnight oil with this one. After that cliffhanger ending, I can't wait for the sequel and am looking forward to the movie.

Heist Hooked!

This was a pretty wild ride into the world of thieves and their families and all the twists and betrayals that come with it. Ross Quest is told time and again by her mother not to trust anyone who is not a Quest. But in order to win the Thieves Gambit she puts that to the test. There are times I had to suspend my disbelief (like the ransom being a billion dollars) but the heists were entertaining and so incredibly twisty (that sarcophagus!) that it was still a fun read. The way things had progressed with Ross and Devroe, i wasn't really surprised by the ending. I was a little disappointed in the ending being so open, mostly because I thought this was going to be a standalone. Plus the ending was so complicated with betrayals and truths revealed that I had a hard time unraveling it. That did not stop me from racing through this book though. But it was a good book and I probably will pick up the next one to see how Ross deals with the new truths and if she can find her own happiness.
