Review: The Thief!



New enemies rise and desire burns in the next thrilling novel of the #1 New York Times bestselling paranormal romance series the Black Dagger Brotherhood.

Sola Morte, former cat burglar and safecracker, has given up her old life on the wrong side of the law. On the run from a drug lord’s family, she is lying low far from Caldwell, keeping her nose clean and her beloved grandmother safe. Her heart, though, is back up north, with the only man who has ever gotten through her defenses: Assail, son of Assail, who never meant to fall in love—and certainly not with a human woman. But they have no future, and not just because she doesn’t know he is a vampire, but because he is not about to stop dealing arms to the Black Dagger Brotherhood. Fate, however, has other plans for them. When Assail falls into a coma and lingers on the verge of death, his cousins seek out Sola and beg her to give him a reason to live. The last thing she wants is a return to her past, but how can she leave him to die?

As a lethal new enemy of the vampires shows its face, and the Brotherhood needs Assail back on his feet, Sola finds herself not only a target, but a mission-critical force in a war she doesn’t understand. And when Assail’s truth comes out, will she run from the horror . . . or follow her heart into the arms of the male who loves her more than life itself?


Warning! Mild spoilers below.




Finally had a chance to finish The Thief!

I have to say, The Thief was everything I had hoped it would be!

I’ve been waiting for Assail and Sola’s book since their parting in The King. As we can already guess, we find Assail in The Thief going through rehabilitation. Sadly, instead of recovering, Assail’s body is shutting down on him and bringing him closer to death’s door. In order to save him, Ehric and Evale, his cousins, track down Sola hoping that she can bring him back from his coma. Sola first refuses to head back to Caldwell due to the events she went through in Lover At Last and The King. However, with a push from her grandmother, Sola goes to see Assail. Once she sees him again, Sola can’t contain her feelings for him any longer and does manage to bring him back. However, there are still obstacles that have to face especially the one about Sola not knowing about the existence of vampires and that the man she loves is one of them.

Overall, J.R. Ward did an excellent job and has now left me hanging until the next book comes out. I was very glad that we finally got a HEA for Assail and Sola after everything they have gone through. Hopefully, we get to see them again in the future books with Assail’s cousins or Markcus. I really enjoyed that The Thief didn’t focus on just Assail and Sola but Vishous and Jane as well! In The Chosen, we saw hints of trouble in Vishous and Jane’s relationship and in this installment, we saw have bad it was. In fact, it almost leads to Vishous committing an act that despite not doing it leads to a brief separation. Luckily, J.R. Ward showed us how much Vishous and Jane are perfect for each other. Also, I look forward to reading more about the shadows Throe is now using to bring chaos within the vampire world. Not to mention, I’m really excited to see Muhrder again in his own book, The Savior that will be out next year!

Ugh, the waiting is already killing me!
