She was born to be a thief. To save the world, she will have to become a queen…
Zoey Donovan-Quinn is growing restless. After months of searching, her crew hasn’t been able to locate the resting place of the one man who could save Daniel. While they frantically continue their quest, Zoey is still struggling to recover from the devastating losses she suffered in Faery. In the midst of her grief and worry, Louis Marini appears and demands the Blood Stone he forced Zoey to steal. Zoey has no other choice than to hand it over.
When the giant ruby’s true nature is revealed, Zoey discovers she has given their greatest enemy a weapon of unimaginable power. Equipped with the Blood Stone, Marini intends to dominate the supernatural world and, on a more personal note, claim Zoey as his companion.
Desperate and on the run, Zoey, Dev, and Daniel forge an unlikely alliance with an old adversary who claims he can lead them to the wizard who can free Daniel from Marini’s clutches and help him claim his throne. As they race to solve a thousand-year-old mystery and gather their forces for the ultimate battle, Zoey prepares to do what she does best.
If Daniel and Dev are to have any hope of victory, she will have to do the unthinkable... surrender to Louis Marini and steal back the Blood Stone.
Take a deep breath…inhale…exhale…inhale…exhale! Ok, I think I’m ready now. I will try my best to keep this review short and sweet. When it comes to this series, or with any Lexi Blake book, I can talk about them for hours and hours. There is just something about every single journey that Lexi takes us on. I never want it to end. It’s so magical, so intense, and so damn beautiful that the reality that you stepped away from to enter Lexi’s world, is no longer appealing AT ALL! I would stay submerged in them if that was at all possible. I would just love to bury myself inside Ms. Blake’s mind and live there forever. The gorgeous, vivid imagination that this woman has is ridiculous. Suspenseful, paranormal romance is her calling, and I am just ecstatic that I was along for the ride.
My favorite trio is back and people are still trying to take them down…SHOCKER! With the Blood Stone in hand, more and more enemies come out of the woodwork. There is never a shortage of enemies when it comes to Dev, Danny, Zoey, and the rest of the crew. If you are a fan of Arthurian legend, then you will absolutely love this latest installment of the Thieves Series. Merlin, Lady of the Lake, Excalibur…I just smile at the great modernization and imagination from the author when it comes to this legend. It was brilliant to say the least.
OMG! I know what you all are waiting for! You want me to spill on Dev and Danny’s relationship! NOT GONNA HAPPEN! It is SO JUICY though, you have NO IDEA! There is one scene….WOW! I don’t care who you are, what gender you are, what sex you prefer, Lexi Blake couldn’t have written two male characters more perfect, and who compliment each other so well. It’s PERFECTION. The love, the tenderness, the complete surrender that these three show one another is beyond reproach. I fell hard for all of these characters, it is simply impossible not to.
As an avid fan of the Thieves novels, I was informed that I might throw my kindle during a certain part of Steal The Night. I have to say that I was definitely informed correctly. Not only did I want to throw my kindle across the room, I wanted to demand a re-write of the scene right then and there. But, I am a grown woman, so I stayed patient, and even though Lexi Blake shattered my heart into a million pieces with one particular scene, slowly, with her brilliance, she eventually put it back together again. My heart still hurts, but only for longing of when I will see a certain character once again.
Steal The Night is not a standalone title. This series must be read in order. I’m not going to say much about it, because I’m afraid of giving something away, but just know that once you begin, you will be hooked. There will be no turning back. Put the coffee on, and be prepared for a long night.
