We were thrown straight into Renna's world as jumped straight into her first job of the book and it was a whirlwind of escapes, fighting and pulling off what seems impossible from there until the end.
I loved the tension between Renna and Finn! Even from the start you could tell something was brewing and I really enjoyed reading about it.
As for the rest of the crew, I grew to like them, even the Pirate :)
The ending has left me wanting to jump straight into the next book just to see if Renna and the crew can kick bad guy arse!
Renna is one of the most sought after thieves in the galaxy, particularly to those that know she is the elusive Star Thief. After saving a young boy, and almost getting caught Renna ends up with a job working for the government, and the secret organisation, MYTH. Not only that, her old mentor, Finn, is the Captain of her team, and Renna can't help revisiting the feelings she had for him when they were both younger. But the mission is more complicated than Renna ever expected, and her and the rest of the team are forced to make some difficult decisions.
I LOVED The Star Thief! It seems to me that after not being able to find a decent sci-fi book with a strong female lead, lots are coming at once! Not that I'm complaining...turns out I'm a sucker for action packed sci-fis with romance!
Renna is a strong character, she has her code and she doesn't like to break it, and even though she is a thief, she has morals that she refuses to break, which is a good thing for any character to have. She is also a highly independent person, which makes her feelings for Finn, and giving into them, so much sweeter, and a good story line.
It was clear from early on that Renna and Finn had chemistry between them, but I'll be honest, this is the first book that I've read in which I've thought that it might not be possible for a couple to get romantically involved. Well that was until the events when the pair got captured, and then there was a FINALLY moment (one of those where you talk to the book as well!)
I thought that this would be a book that I would like but not love, turns out I was completely and utterly wrong, I loved it, a lot, and can't wait for the next one, which I have high hopes for!
Series: Star Thief Chronicles (#1)
Author: Jamie Grey
Source: Amazon Kindle Unlimited
My Rating: 4 stars
I was super excited to read The Star Thief because of the awesome-sounding combination of thieves, sci-fi, and romance, and I have to say that Jamie Grey definitely delivered. Renna is the best thief in the galaxy and knows it. She knows all about the technology that she uses, is patient, and has great instinct. She's proud of who she is and is confident – not arrogant but has a hint of cockiness that gives her attitude. As well has being great at what she does, Renna is able to be ruthless but still has standards. By this I mean that she doesn't hesitate to do what is needed to survive but there are still some lines that she refuses to cross. I loved Renna and think Jamie Grey presented her really well. There were some qualities about Renna that were slightly cliche, such as her inability to trust easily, but that comes with the territory and when it came down to it Renna actually defied those cliches and didn't run the moment she made a connection with someone.
The plot was just as engaging as the main character and had more depth than I had expected. The basic story is that on a heist gone wrong Renna ends up captured by MYTH, a secret government military agency. She is blackmailed – sorry, strongly advised – into helping MYTH with a mission in return for enough money to retire forever. Of course she says yes because the alternative is pretty much death and ends up working under the command of Captain Finn, who just happens to be someone from her past. One part that did have me a bit puzzled was what Renna was supposed to be stealing. I'm not sure if I just missed it when reading, if the explanation was vague, or if I'm forgotten but that small area is kind of grey. But overall The Star Thief has plenty of action with some kick ass futuristic spaceships and technology that kept me wanting more throughout the book.
The romance was slightly unexpected but boy did I enjoy it! I loved how Renna and Finn already had a history together because it made the slow-burn romance so much more delicious. This was one of those cases where Finn hated Renna for a while but there's actually an excellent explanation (which I won't spoil) instead of some flimsy excuse. These two characters have serious chemistry and the author draws it out very well, building a relationship on more than just lust.
All in all I found The Star Thief to be a great read and am definitely reading the sequel soon! Anyone who likes sci-fi or books with thieves should check this out and for anybody who is like me and needs romance in their books, don't worry, this has plenty ;)
NA which I think is more like Adult
