“The Smoke Thieves” is a great start on a young adult fantasy series!

The fates of five different persons are intertwined on a path to survival on this medieval fantasy world. There are four kingdoms from which the five main characters come. Those kingdoms are either peaceful or not. They will however found themselves at war, fighting for their freedom or more power.

Princess Catherine of Brigant, a country known for its wars and fighters, is preparing herself to be married to a person she never even met, Prince Tzsayn of Pitoria. Pitoria is a peaceful neighboring kingdom to Brigant and everyone is happy to know of that wedding, as it will ensure Brigant’s eastern borders as well as will add to its wealth that went down after the war to Calidor.

Ambrose is Princess Catherine’s guard, and not only that. He is the second son of a marquess and he is a great warrior who has chosen honor by joining the Royal Guard. He is also in love with the Princess and his heart hurts knowing that she is to be married to another man. Alas, there is not much he can do about that!

March is a servant to Calidor’s King, but that was not always his place. He used to be a free man in Abask, but during the war between Brigant and Calidor, Abask stood in the way and the Calidorian failed to protect them, as he promised. Now all his people are dead and he seeks revenge.

He will find a way to revenge, when he hears of the King’s illegitimate son, Edyon, who lives in Pitoria with his mother. Edyon’s mother is a trader. She trades furniture while Edyon cannot help himself from thievery. He just cannot help it, which is how he founds himself in trouble, when he steals from a demon hunter.

The demon hunter, Gravell, is big and hairy and has a thirteen year old girl for a companion. The girl, Tash, is the demon bait, as she runs like the wind and lures the demons to Gravell’s trap. She has been born in Illast, which is neighboring Pitoria, and she was selected for this job due to her fast running ability! Their business is dangerous as getting the demon smoke is not easy. This means its price is high though!

In this first installment of the series, we get to know about the world and the different kingdoms, through the narrations of these five main characters. Each one of them are found in a different place, and start unravelling their own stories, however, it is more that obvious that their paths will eventually cross. And they do cross, since they all meet up as the book reaches its end, and they become a sort of a companion in a cold, hostile and dangerous territory.

As the story is told from five different point of views, the reader is able to get to know the characters and their perspective pretty thoroughly. There are their thoughts and acts and the reason for their acts, which is justified through their saying.

The author has done a marvelous work on the world building, as we get to know of the differences among the kingdoms, based on the different landscapes, the politics, the habits of their people, the accents, the hair and eye colors and so much more. There is striking difference between Brigant and Pitoria which is making a huge impact on the story itself and how things turn out in the end.

And the end is the mother of cliffhangers! A great way to get all readers hooked to the series, waiting for the next in line! ( )

I received with thanks an ARC copy of The Smoke Thieves (The Smoke Thieves #1) from Penguin Random House UK & Netgalley.

This is my true and honest review of The Smoke Thieves (The Smokes Thieves #1) by Sally Green. This is due to be published on 3rd May 2018

This is the first book I have read from this author. After reading this I am sure I will give the Half Bad Series a try. This is a high fantasy book told from many points of view. These characters are interlinked with each other in different ways. The characters are likeable and made me want to learn more about them. The story does give you Game of Throne vibes but in a good way. This is book 1 and will defiantly be carrying on with new series. This kept me on my toes all the time reading it and would highly recommend giving this a try when its released.

Great book for fantasy lovers and multiple POV’s and high fantasy.

This book was ok. Way to much perspectives though. We could have done with less. Like Ambrose's perspective was unnecessary, as well as Edyon's one. It also dragged a lot. ( )

This was an awesome book! Too bad it ends in a cliffhanger. I liked this much better than Sally Green's other work, Half Bad. I hope she writes more of this story! ( )

First let me say I listened to this on audio. There were different narrators for each character's chapters, but for the first half I was confused as to which boy was which and kept thinking there was one more boy than there actually was. Once I got it straight in my head, things were much easier to understand. This was probably a lack of paying attention on my part. The story itself was okay, I found it a little slow and it didn't pick up until halfway or so. Katherine was fun to read, I liked how strong she was and how she wanted to do what was best for the people. I felt pretty bad for Edyon, since he was being misled the entire book, but I do want to see what happens with his and March's relationship.
Overall not a bad book and the ending leaves you wanting to know what will happen. ( )
