Review: The Smoke Thieves by Sally Green

The Smoke Thieves by Sally Green
Published by: Penguin Random House Children's
Released: 3rd May 2018
Page Count: 513
Edition: Kindle
Genre: YA Fantasy


Thank you to Penguin Random House Children's for sending me a copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

A princess, a traitor, a hunter and a thief. Four teenagers with the fate of the world in their hands. Four nations destined for conflict. 

In Brigant, Princess Catherine prepares for a loveless political marriage arranged by her brutal and ambitious father. In Calidor, downtrodden servant March seeks revenge on the prince who betrayed his people. In Pitoria, feckless Edyon steals cheap baubles for cheaper thrills as he drifts from town to town. And in the barren northern territories, thirteen-year-old Tash is running for her life as she plays bait for the gruff demon hunter Gravell.

As alliances shift and shatter, and old certainties are overturned, our four heroes find their past lives transformed and their futures inextricably linked by the unpredictable tides of magic and war. Who will rise and who will fall? And who will claim the ultimate prize?

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I loved but will never re-read

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

This week is about books I loved but will never re-read. I'm not a big re-reader if I'm completely honest and I only re-read books if I am in love with them. So, this list wasn't that hard for me to come up with to be honest.

As always leave me links to your posts.
