Giveaway / Review / Character Interview: THE DEVIL'S THIEF by Lisa Maxwell (WE LOVE THIS SERIES)

Guys, we are so genuinely excited for this blog tour. Reagan and I (Andye) both fell in love with THE LAST MAGICIAN by Lisa Maxwell, and desperately want everyone else to read it and fall in love as well. And book two, THE DEVIL'S THIEF, is coming out soon, so now is the time! Check out Reagan's review for TDT, and don't miss her interview with one of the most swoon-worthy book boys ever! And, of course, you'll want to enter the giveaway at the end.

Buy the Book:
Esta’s parents were murdered. Her life was stolen. And everything she knew about magic was a lie. She thought the Book of Mysteries held the key to freeing the Mageus from the Order’s grasp, but the danger within its pages was greater than she ever imagined. Now the Book’s furious power lives inside Harte. If he can’t control it, it will rip apart the world to get its revenge, and it will use Esta to do it. To bind the power, Esta and Harte must track down four elemental stones scattered across the continent. But the world outside the city is like nothing they expected. There are Mageus beyond the Brink not willing to live in the shadows—and the Order isn’t alone in its mission to crush them. In St. Louis, the extravagant World’s Fair hides the first stone, but an old enemy is out for revenge and a new enemy is emerging. And back in New York, Viola and Jianyu must defeat a traitor in a city on the verge of chaos.

If you ever just are in the mood to throttle someone, but can't find the passion or drive, just read this book and you will be good to go. Literally the entire book is just TENSION and like as soon as some of that tension starts to be released IT JUST SNAPS RIGHT BACK. If you want to hold on to your hopes and dreams that were started in the first book, you might want to wait for book three.

I might not be a sobbing mess on the floor, but this is almost WoRsE. Don't get me wrong, the book was good as hell (get it? DEVIL'S thief? No? Okay. I'll be in my corner), BUT I'M TENSE JUST THINKING ABOUT IT! Esta, amazing I love her. Harte, I'm still swooning. Viola, still woman goals. Jianyu, still super loyal and cool. Jack, still a douche. Nibsy, still extremely rude (to put it mildly). BUT BACK TO THE POINT:

But the writing in the book is absolutely AMAZING. It gives these great descriptions of characters and settings with out being so wordy that the reader loses interest. The way Maxwell plays with time travel is amazing and I LOVE IT. It's so hard to find a GOOD book with time travel in it. Plus I like that it's magical time travel so I don't have to try and pretend I know anything about science.

Overall I did adore this book, you just have to be willing to stick it out until book three where HOPEFULLY I can relax and not have a mental break down (Please and thank you Lisa Maxwell). So if you haven't read The Last Magician, you actually need to because it is so fantastic and The Devil's Thief is coming to your local bookstore soon (but not nearly soon enough if you ask me) and you need to be mentally prepared for it. 

Au revoir readers!

Want to know more about Harte? (Spoiler: You do) Here's an interview Reagan did with him.

1. If you could, would you want to visit 2018?
  • Visit? Or stay? Because from what I’ve gleaned, it’s a hell of a lot cleaner there. 
2. If you had to trade powers with someone, who would it be and why?

  • I wouldn’t trade with anyone, except for maybe a Sundren. I wouldn’t want anyone else’s burden, but giving it up…I could see myself doing that. No power, and the Brink wouldn’t have any hold on me at all.
3. What’s your desert island food?

  • An orange. They taste like sunshine, and I imagine whatever freedom feels like.
4. What’s one thing in your life you couldn’t live without?

  • I could—and have—lived without a great many things, but I couldn’t live without my integrity. And to be clear, I’m pretty much a bastard in every way you can be one, but there are certain lines even I can’t cross. Oh… you meant an actual thing? That would be indoor plumbing.
5. Out of everyone, who would you kiss, who would you marry, and who would you kill?

  • Can I just pick Esta for all 3?
6. Is there anything you want us to know that hasn’t been asked yet?

  • I’d say the less you know about me the better.
