I’m going to pick up this nifty little meme hosted by Breaking the Spine and spotlight a book I’ve been looking forward to ever since I heard it was being written. Not sure when I’ll have time to read it, but DUDE! Jamie Grey’s writing makes me fangirl, and hearing that she was working on a New Adult space opera heist/action/thriller or whatever you might call it? Definitely means I’m going off-budget next week to buy the paperback. I’ve been hoping for some expansion in the New Adult category and there’s no one I trust to do that better than Jamie. Watch your feed this coming Tuesday (Feb 4) for buy links!
[Oh yeah, and part of the reason I’m posting about THE STAR THIEF now instead of on release day is because Tuesday is also the day of the artwork reveal for eight original trading cards based on the Serengard Series. Stay tuned.]
She might only be twenty-three, but Renna Carrizal is the most notorious thief in the galaxy. There’s just one problem – all she wants is to get the frak out.
But when Renna rescues an injured boy from the warehouse she’s casing, she finds herself on the run from the mob instead of enjoying retirement on a garden world. Turns out, the kid was a plant to lead her to MYTH, a top-secret galactic protection agency. MYTH needs Renna’s special skills and they make her an offer she can’t refuse – declining will send her straight to a prison ship for the rest of her life.
To make sure she does her job they shackle her with a MYTH watchdog, the handsome but arrogant Captain Finn. A former mercenary-turned-galactic-hero, Finn happens to have his own dirty secrets. Secrets that Renna wouldn’t mind uncovering for herself. Together, they discover the attacks are an experiment to develop illegal cybernetics that will create an unstoppable army.
The intended target? The human star fleet.
Now Renna must use her skills as the Star Thief to pull off the biggest job of her career – saving the galaxy. And herself.
