What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
One sassy pyromaniac thief, three sexy-as-sin monsters, and a paranormal conspiracy of epic proportions.
It was an ordinary job. Another night, another asshole collector of the supernatural. I free some poor little beasties from their cages, pocket a few trinkets to pay my bills, and burn the place down on my way out. Just call me the Robin Hood of monster emancipation.
I didn’t count on three manly monsters following me home like lost puppies. Stunningly hot lost puppies, but still. Now I’ve got a seductively cheeky incubus, a sweetly enthusiastic demon, and a grimly stoic angel camped out in my kitchen. They’re determined to repay me for my help, and they won’t get out of my apartment until they’re satisfied we’re even.
To be fair, they’ve got no place else to go. A covert band of hunters captured their boss, and the trail is ice-cold. I’ll lend a hand if it means I can send them packing… and when it looks like we’re up against the same creeps who murdered the person I loved most, you’d better believe I’m all in.
Track down the baddies.
Steal back the boss.
Don’t get killed along the way.
Oh, and maybe hook up with a monstrous hottie or two.
Piece of cake.
I’m so going to regret this.
*Shadow Thief is the first book in a new reverse harem urban fantasy series. If you love kickass heroines with sass to spare, drool-worthy monsters with their own sense of morality, and steamy romances where there’ll be no choosing required, dive in now!*
Thoughts on Shadow Thief
3.5 rounded up
This was a good story, but I had a hard time connecting to it – not sure why. All the right elements are there, but something felt rushed.
Regardless, it’s still decent and I’ll continue the series – I want to see what happens with Omen! We spent the entire book looking for him, and when they find him? Oh boy…. that is going to be a mess of epic proportions.
And there has to be something in her past, her present is a little too tied up with the shadowkind to be strictly human.

My Final Verdict on Shadow Thief
A new world with new rules, some of them interesting, some not so much – yet it all melds in a unique way that taunts a fuller backstory that we got here. Overall, it’s a decent story that is sure to capture quite a few imaginations. Free on Kindle Unlimited.
