Bad Things Always Come In Threes… As a thief, I'm good at three things: hiding in the shadows, getting in and out unseen, and uncovering secrets. I put these skills to work for the Sinclair Family, one of the magical mobs that run the tourist town of Cloudburst Falls. Everyone knows Victor Draconi wants to take over all the other Families--and kill every last Sinclair. What they don't know is that I'm on to him, and no way will I let the man who murdered my mom get away with hurting all the other people I care about. Especially when I've got places to break into, stuff to steal, and Devon Sinclair fighting right by my side…
Four Boundless Stars
I swear Lila probably has dealt with more in the last few weeks, then probably almost all her life. I enjoyed listening to Lila through the journey that she’s had to go through.
She fights one of the worst evils, she has ever known. But she is reminded time and time again, that she can do it. She is basically the chosen one, the one that could get rid of Victor once and for awhile. That’s a lot to put on someone shoulders. Especially, at her age.
There’s a reason i didn’t give it five stars. I do love this series and I feel for a YA. It’s really great for the genre, or anyone who loves a good YA. It’s exciting, thrilling, and nail biting. There were a few times I wanted to skip, so I could see what happens to Lila. It’s just that the writer, had a tendency to rehash the previous books. I get it, if it’s been like a couple years since the last was published. But I had just finished the second. I didn’t need six chapters of remembering who all the characters were, or what had happened.
Britney Pressley, is an outstanding narrator! she really gave each character their own voice. You weren’t think about anything, but the story itself. It was really easy to get lost in the story, with her narration.
Overall, I give this story Four Boundless Stars.
