Fire and Heist

In Sky Hawkins’s family, leading your first heist is a major milestone–even more so than learning to talk, walk, or do long division. It’s a chance to gain power and acceptance within your family, and within society. But stealing your first treasure can be complicated, especially when you’re a wyvern–a human capable of turning into a dragon.

Embarking on a life of crime is never easy, and Sky discovers secrets about her mother, who recently went missing, the real reason her boyfriend broke up with her, and a valuable jewel that could restore her family’s wealth and rank in their community.

With a handpicked crew by her side, Sky knows she has everything she needs to complete her first heist, and get her boyfriend and mother back in the process. But then she uncovers a dark truth about were-dragon society–a truth more valuable and dangerous than gold or jewels could ever be.




  • The cover. The colours and contrast is just sooo pretty! And I really like the ddagon statue worked into the title.
  • Shape-shifting dragon people. This just sound so cool. It’s a trope I’ve always thought I’d love but I’ve never really found a book where it worked for me. I hoping it’s this one!
  • I love a good heist story. The fact that it’s a fantasy too is a win-win.

    1. Thank you! I’m enjoying it so far. I think it’s really interesting to see the difference in the way Anne writes her characters as opposed to Charlotte and Emily.
      I hope you enjoy Cranford if you pick it up. I’ve seen the TV series but not read the book. I did really like the cast of quirky characters.
