Summary: Crystal Hatcher, Modern-day Toronto: It’s a normal afternoon in her mother’s antique bookshop when Crys witnesses the unthinkable: her little sister Becca collapses into a coma after becoming mesmerized by a mysterious book written in an unrecognizable language.

Maddox Corso, Ancient Mytica: Maddox Corso doesn’t think much of it when he spots an unfamiliar girl in his small village. Until, that is, he realizes that she is a spirit, and he is the only one who can see or hear her. Her name is Becca Hatcher, and she needs Maddox to help get her home.

Farrell Grayson, Modern-day Toronto: Rich and aimless Farrell Grayson is thrilled when the mysterious leader of the ultra-secret Hawkspear Society invites him into the fold. But when he learns exactly what he has to do to prove himself, Farrell starts to question everything he thought he knew about family, loyalty, and himself….

Fate has brought these young people together, but ancient magic threatens to rip them apart.

Review: I am completely blown away with what I just read. A Book of Spirits and Thieves sets in modern-day Canada, but also in Mytica before the event of Falling Kingdoms where the gods rule the land.

I absolutely adored everything about it. It has a gripping storyline and the characters are all complex and quite lovable. Farrell and Crystal stood out throughout the entire book. They have their own unique personalities and you just can’t help but love them.

The world was the most fascinating aspect of the book. The world was complex and so interesting. The story was captivating and fun and kept you turning the next page to find out what happens next.

Morgan Rhodes is a wonderful writer and she just grabs your attention throughout the book. It is very compelling which makes it hard to put down and made me so excited for the next one.

My Rating: 4.5/5
