It's a chance to gain power and acceptance within your family, and within society.

Fire and Heist Reviews
I have received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Okay, fire and heist had potential. I was so pumped to dive into this review but for the first half - I was so freaking bored. I wasn’t connecting to any of characters and I also didn’t care one bit about the drama either. Thankfully, it started to pick up after halfway through the book. Unfortunately, it was a little too late.
In this book, you will meet Sky. She’s a wyvern, which is basically a dragon shifter. Sky was an ...more
This book was in my first ever fairyloot and first I was kinda scared, because what if I don't like it? Then I started it on Saturday night, because I wanted to read something light and fun. It also has only 300 pages and I could finish it in 1-2 days, so that's what I did. :)
When I started it I only knew that it's about were-dragons and heist (I didn't want/need to know more). And now I think about it and it was just all I wanted. I escaped in this world and had an adventure.
This book also had ...more
5 Words: Not My Cup of Tea.
Read as part of Fairyloot Readalong.
This was a DNF for me.
It was the writing style I couldn't get along with, and it's a shame as I was actually really looking forward to Fire & Heist. It's similar to the writing style of The Selection.
I gave it a valiant effort I think, but as I approached the half way point I just couldn't bring myself to pick it up again.
Ahh, what fun. RTC
Wyverns, heists, plotting, and a lovable family/friends dynamic... It's too perfect! Okay Fire and Heist is just so much fun! The book gave me the same happy/good feeling as watching one of the Ocean 11 movies. So I really recommend reading this if you are in the mood for a happy and easy read!
Dragons?? Heists?? AND THAT COVER?!
At this point, I'll read anything Sarah Beth Durst writes. This is gonna be amazing.
And I also wanna know who the hell is rating this book before it's even come out?? Why?? Would you do this?? It's pissing me off and it needs to stop.
Since I have read The Queen of Blood at this point and am definitely a fan of Ms. Durst, I can't wait for this!
Finally a release date and cover!
I had really high hopes for this one, because the blurb makes it sound like it’s Heist Society with dragons. Sadly, that is not the case, and not just because there was a distinct lack of hot blond billionaire.
16-year-old Sky Hawkins and her family are wyverns. Originally descended from dragons, they can’t actually transform anymore, but they can still breathe fire. And they still LOVE their gold. In the wyvern community, leading your first heist to steal something is a huge coming-of-age ritual ...more
