Description

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.

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.

Enjoyable

Me next book in the series is not part of the romance package therefore I won’t be spending a credit for it. The boom was enjoyable though.

Love the series. Hate the cliff hanger.

Love the series but hate the cliffhanger. Of the series just started and I had too wit months to get back to the series, I probably wouldn't listen to her books again.

I wish books were rated

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

People that are indifferent to casual sex and a lot of profanty.

What did you like best about this story?

Good story ruined with unecessary moral compromise and a lot of profanity/vulgarity. People who live this talk and lifestyle are immune, I get it. However, I do not think they would actually "miss" it if it were not present or if it was toned down a lot, and, I believe there is a much larger audience being axed because the casual sex and vulgarity/profanity bring such negative vibes to the story line, I call them "brown clouds". Romance, yes. But the romance would actually come off as plausible if it was built on more than a strong physical attraction which is how the main players come across. I mean, come on, wanting to jump anyone's bones if their good looking? That's how this book comes across. The characters seem so shallow with the dilution of, the missing components needed for enduring love; the deep spiritual and psychological aspects.
I just feel like the author is losing many listeners for no good reason. Probably because some editor is demanding that the material be sex and profanity filled. I would never recommend this to anyone or any of the kids or teenagers in my family, but I would have loved to have been able to. I even thought of returning it after listening to it, but, just decided to let it go and not continue on with the series.

Did Saskia Maarleveld do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Accent was too heavy. Made it a bit difficult to follow.

Any additional comments?

Entertaining, yes, Uplifting, no. You won't walk away feeling "good".

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.

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.

Doesn’t have the ending

I hate when they give you the book and it was written to make you buy the next book to hear the ending

okay read

This one was okay. Although I think she took on too much responsibility. She's bailing her mentor/adopted father out of his debts like she was the wise one so much so she cant get herself in the right position to change her life. She walked right into a trap and wasnt smart enough to figure it out after the pink champagne fiasco. I knew it. but she dont think twice about lying. SMH. She is not bad but kind of seemed full of herself.

Buch mit erfrischender Protagonistin!

im Genre Fantasy incl. Knistern fällt es - natürlich rein subjektiv gefühlt - mittlerweile echt schwer, nicht bei einer von Hormonschwankungen geplagten Damsel zu geraten, die oh nur an ihre Macht und Freunde glauben muss, um..!
Yada Yada Yada.

Der Klappentext liest sich vielleicht wie der eines klassischen Klischees, aber diese Sidhe ist weder von anstrengenden Selbstzweifeln geplant, noch verliebt sie sich instant. Findet sie ihn heiß? Klar, bei der Beschreibung? ! <;

der schwere Akzent ist anfangs ein kleines Hoppla, aber da hört man sich rein und dann passt er einfach genial.
ich hoffe die Nebenchars werden noch ein klein wenig tiefer beleuchtet in den folgenden Büchern, dann bin ich definitiv hin und weg!

schon jetzt ein Favorit
