Fire and Heist by Sarah Beth Durst
Expected Publication: December 4th 2018
Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy
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.
3 REASONS I’M EXCITED FOR FIRE AND HEIST
- 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.
