Gifted Thief – Helen Harper (Highland Magic Book 1) – Review


Orphan. Runaway. Thief.

Since the moment I was ripped from my mother’s womb, I’ve been an outcast amongst my own kind. The Sidhe might possess magical Gifts, unbelievable wealth and unfathomable power but I don’t want a thing to do with them. I ran away from their lands in the Highlands of Scotland when I was eleven years old and I’ve never looked back. I don’t need a Clan. I’ve got my own family of highly skilled thieves who mean more to me than any Sidhe ever could.

Unfortunately for me, the playboy heir to the Moncrieffe Clan has something I desperately need. To get it back, I’m going to have to plunge myself back into that world, no matter what the consequences may be. I suppose it’s just as well I have sense of humour. I think I’m going to need it.

Although it’s not the exactly the newest plot line. Girl runs away from bad guardian’s house and years later she runs into them again and so on… It’s a good book though. I liked Integrity. She was an orphan who ran away and made a living for herself, maybe not on the right side of the law but she held up to her moral code… She’s not one of those perfect female lead characters with a bleeding heart, she has a lot of flaws like her extensive collection of boring jokes. Byron was a bit of a typical male lead – the guy who looks like the bad guy has a hidden good side… but I’ll admit to favoring that type often.. It was a nice storyline. There was a little lag in a few places where I felt it could have been written better but overall it’s a good book to read. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a light read with a little action and good comebacks. All in all I would give it a 3.9 on a scale of 5.
