Alice Malone, branded the best thief in all of Bell City, is about to
have her world turned upside-down. When a heist goes wrong,
she will be forced to befriend her enemies and must re-consider
the values that she holds dear.
This was one of those ‘take it or leave it’ reads for me. I did love the concept as a whole, with the devil’s blood lending people unique and at times terrifying super-abilities.
Malone’s character was particularly fascinating and although I didn’t relate well to her, I did admire her level of determination and courage in the face of danger.
There wasn’t much to dislike in my opinion, although I felt that some of the main characters could have been more well-rounded, e.g. Clearwater. Such characters lacked depth and were difficult to read.
Other than that, the story was sound, with an intriguing plot that kept me reading. I did note that there were quite a few missing connective words mid-sentence, which if fixed would improve the overall quality of the reader’s experience.
All in all, this was a fun, action-packed tale that will have me on the lookout for the sequel, as well as other works from B. B. Morgan.
Superb and imaginative.
My rating: 3.5 Stars
(Light editing really is needed for those missing connective words as there were a LOT.)
