“STEAL THE LIGHT has everything I look for in an urban fantasy. ”
~ Under the Covers

This book has been on my TBR for ages.  I owned it in three formats and it was still sitting there.  I think a part of me wasn’t sure how I would like Lexi Blake’s style in an urban fantasy because I’m used to reading erotic romance by her.  Well, I’m kicking my own ass right now because this was such a fun urban fantasy read.

In this series, we follow a group of professional supernatural thieves.  Our heroine, Zoey, is human and has a team of supernaturals working with her on small jobs while she’s making her own name and getting out from under her father’s shadow.  One of those supernaturals is the only love of her life, Daniel.  He died in an accident a few years ago and came back as a vampire.  Their relationship was never the same.

They’re offered a job to steal the Light of Alhorra and the payment is a big load of cash.  If it seems too good to be true, that’s because it is.  And their souls may be damned for all eternity if they don’t complete the job.

STEAL THE LIGHT has everything I look for in an urban fantasy.  A full set of supernatural creatures with magic, strengths, and powers.  The plot of this story is well balanced with introducing us to the world and building on the backstory of the romance between Daniel and Zoey.  I never felt like one part was more present than the other and it just flowed really nicely.  I wanted to keep going and find out what was going to happen.  Things never felt over the top or unbelievable like it sometimes can with these types of stories.  It was logical and action packed and I think some of Ms. Blake’s romantic suspense elements where nicely woven into the narration of this book.

In the end, I really enjoyed this world and this group of characters as a whole and I cannot wait to continue reading the series and see what other trouble they get themselves into.  Of course, I need to know how things develop in the romance department as well.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
