    1. Pros Ahiers always manages to write such epic endings Ahiers is also always on point with the character developments again I love the themes of family, identity, and freedom here I liked how things were resolved in these areas The mythology and the different gods we learn about in this book are so interesting These gods are frightening, powerful, and amazing I honestly would love books just to meet gods and learn about them Seeing Lea and Les again They are the sweetest and Lea is again super [...]

    3. What a let down I might have liked this better if Allegra wasn t such a little brat It s hard to feel bad for her when she s running around like a snotty teenage girl who kisses random boys to prove that she s rebellious and can do whatever she wants.I think I m supposed to feel bad for Allegra because Lea stole her from the Da Vias familybut I actually feel sorry for Lea because she has to put up with her.I feel like Allegra never had to apologize for anything terrible that she does in this boo [...]

World building A Mythology A Plot Twists A Suspense AGirl Power A Guy Hero AVillains ALove Interests AFeels A The first few chapters were fatiguing for me to read because it felt like the first book was being retold a generation later However, Ahiers quickly took that misconception of mine behind the tool shed so to speak Thief s Cunning is an excellent finding your place story filled with magic, mystery, and powerful messages of nature, balance, justice, and love romantic and otherwise I feel t [...]

    7. A routine was just another trap, one you forced yourself into I refused to trap myself I was already caged enough.It s been eighteen years since Lea Saldana exacted her revenge on the Da Vias She s now the head of the Family, living in Yvain and secretly continuing to carry out their duty as clippers It also means reigning in her niece, Allegra, who is rash and reckless Allegra is bothered by the secrets surrounding her birth, and when she finds out she should ve been raised as a Da Via, she fin [...]

    8. Maybe closer to 4.5 than 4 No sopho slump on this one I wish there were planned, but you have to tell the stories that need to be told, not the ones that need to be read, right

    10. Definitely liked Lea and Les story Allegra was too impulsive, too stubborn, and too reckless for my liking I almost feel bad for Nev because she is a lot too handle Interesting story though

    11. I was slightly wary going into Thief s Cunning, as I knew the story would be about a character that I felt was not treated ethically in Assassin s Heart I won t go into specifics in case you haven t read the book, but basically there was a big decision at the end that the main character Lea made that I completely disagreed with The character that was impacted most by that decision is Allegra, the main character of Thief s Cunning.Taking a step back from this particular plot point, I thought the [...]

    12. You know, I distinctly remember being so utterly in love with the first book in the series Lea was my stubborn little spitfire of a hero I loved everything about the first book, and when I heard there was going to be a sequel, I was so exited.And also scared.Because I said to myself, what if they fuck it up What if they take an amazing series and trash it by trying to push a story that doesn t need to be told The first book was amazing as a standalone, and frankly should have been I worried, wha [...]

    13. A great follow up book to Assassin s Heart Thief s Cunning expands on what has happened since the end of that book Eighteen years later Lea and Les are back as clippers or assassins Working together alongside them is their niece Allegra, who has never seemed to fit in with the Saldana family When on a trip to Lovero, Allegra learns the truth of her parentage and the secrets that have been kept from her she turns to Nev, a traveler whose life of freedom she admires But the freedom she admires isn [...]

Thief s Cunning transports us 18 years after the events of book one, Assassin s Heart, and we see Lea and Les have grown up, as well as the children they took from the Da Vias The story follows the baby that Lea took, Allegra, who Lea is raising as her niece Despite the relational ties being almost non existent, Allegra seems to have picked up many qualities from Lea herself, specifically her feisty nature and stubborness Allegra fights with the many social and political ties that bind her, alwa [...]

    18. This book was of a 3.5 read for me I enjoyed it than the previous book, though some of the issues I had with the first book continued in this one In both, the main character is dead set on something revenge, being free, etc For the majority of the book, the character never changes their opinions on that topic, and are stubborn about it Near the end of the book, they have a big revelation that changes everything, and makes them a better person Finally, they talk about that topic as if they were [...]

    20. I received an ARC copy in exchange for a fair review.3.5 stars 5 stars WARNING There are MANY references to what Lea and Les Saldana did in the first book If you wish to remain unspoiled about Assassin s Heart, you probably shouldn t read this one first.Thief s Cunning introduces us to Allegra Saldana, the niece of Lea Saldana MC of Assassin s Heart Allegra has just turned eighteen and wishes for freedom in her life She is given this opportunity when the Saldanas travel to Lovero There, she mee [...]

    21. I had high hopes for this book I knew the prequel was a little shallow, but at least it was fun and interesting, like Assassin s Creed abridged But it turns out this book was a worse book than the prequel.Very little action No intrigue, suspense, tension, cunning, or any of the assassin world building It was as if someone wrote a romance fan fiction.Protagonist is very shallow From the start, her character was written to be gullible, wilful, and quick to fall in love Half of the book was about h [...]

    22. I enjoyed this book however, it didn t live up to my expectations at all Honestly, I think it would have been better if Ahiers broke it into 2 books One to explain the new culture of the travels and set up the plot then another to execute greatness SPOILERS My favorite aspect of the book was the continued world building Us readers learned about an entire culture that was merely mentioned in the Assassin s Heart novel I loved learning about the culture and myths of Mornia as well as its citizens. [...]

    23. I don t even know where to begin with this one because it draws out every emotion there is There s love, sadness, pain, action, passion, betrayal you name it.In THIEF S CUNNING, Allegra struggles to find who she is because she doesn t feel like she belongs anywhere Her father was killed while she was a baby Her mother was killed at childbirth, so Lea Saldana raises her from birth But Lea s hiding secrets and they can t remain hidden forever, especially when Allegra is so persistent and stubborn [...]

    24. Thief s Cunning was pretty good after the first 100 pages that is.Allegra was annoying majority of the time that I even had to put the book down every so often She was either saying I have to make it back to the Da Vias every minute, or ranting about how Emile was favored and she was locked out from the world by Les and Lea who were only protecting her, even the dumbest person would have figured it out.Apart from Allegra, I WAS SERIOUSLY LOOKING FORWARD FOR THEM WELL DESCRIBED ASSASSINATIONS but [...]

    25. This was a really great companion sequel to Assassin s Heart I loved the first book, and though the narrator and story line is different, I still loved it all the same Lea and Les are still in the book as adoptive parents to Allegra If you read the first book, you know that Lea and Les took Allegra when they attacked the Da Via s Allegra is 18 now and doesn t feel like she fits in with her family and her Family She find s out that her mother was a Da Via s and want to join them Allegra is very r [...]

    26. Let me just start by saying this book blew my expectations out of the water We lead this book off with continuing with the events that happened in the first book with Lea and Les and there Saldana Family To start I loved the first book so I did have high hopes for this book I love the way that Sarah Ahiers combines love, government, gods and family all in one book I like any books that are assassin related I loved how the second book had love related and as always plenty of secrets and loop hol [...]
