This is a hard review to write, I love Remy and Thaddeus and I am so happy with how the story handles there romance, it’s not in your face but Thaddeus cares about her so much he would travel the world to find her. (literally) Remy is a stubborn, immature girl who at times I wanted to smack but I adore her and think she is just very guarded of her heart since she has had to deal with so much heartache. The story continues a few months maybe after the last book ended, just when they think things might not be so complicated new friends appear and enemies surface. The introduction of Yannick as Remy’s old friend I just didn’t trust him and you sort of sense that you aren’t suppose to and he seems so shady. I wanted to like him but he really just wasn’t a good guy, I am 100 percent all Thaddeus.
A lot happens to our characters in this book, so many twists and turns, this was one heck of an adventure that they are on. I want to go into detail but I would be giving so much away. I found the middle of the book to be a tad bit slow, when Thaddeus and J are in the Airship, I wanted the story move along a little faster and with so much going on it was hard to hit a slow spot. However the end is quite an epic event and so much is learned and happens that I can not wait for the next one to see where the adventure takes our Thief and Policeman.
I gave this one 4 stars only because of the slow part but the story had so much info and really kept me reading. Loved all the twist and the end made me want so much more.
