No-one performs on the circus trapeze like 16-year-old Remy Brunel. But Remy also leads another life, prowling through the backstreets of Victorian London as a jewel thief. When she is forced to steal one of the world's most valuable diamonds, she uncovers a world of treachery and fiendish plots.
I received this book last year at BEA and I am not sure what took me so long to read it. This was a really good story with very likable characters. I even read most of the book with a french accent, I was totally unaware I could even do a french accent so it was a surprise when I realized it.
Remy and Thaddeus are great characters. Thaddeus was a little frustrating because he was a policeman and he wanted to do things by the book but really Thaddeus give the girl a break and his listening skills I want to bop him in the nose. Remy was a strong female character this girl could do anything and I loved when she put her knowledge of the circus to use in the cave. So intense but I also felt for her being stuck in a situation that wasn’t her fault. I do wish they had a little more depth to them and also their relationship wasn’t as strong as I thought it could be however once I got to the end I realized these two have a lot of growing with each other to do and I think in that perspective it works out a lot better.
I found the story to be really interesting with lots of action, adventure and a bit of suspense. I loved the twists with in the book and I thought they other characters made this a very enjoyable read. The end really blew me away since I thought like a typical romance YA this would have a predictable ending but I honestly like it the way it was done and look forward to reading the next one to see how the characters grow.
I enjoyed both characters and look forward to watching their relationship blossom more in the next book. I am going to have to brush up on my French accent.
