I would give this book 4 for a review.
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.
I really enjoyed this book. I found this book to be such a fun read. I thought he world building was so fun and the magic system was so fun to read about. I found this book to be such a fun read. I really enjoyed the heist/dragon novel. I really loved the lead character so much and just love the heist side of this novel. I thought the various locations we went to was also so well crafted. I also love the complex family dynamics that was featured in this novel. I read this book so fast and it just made me smile. I really loved this as standalone but would love too see more stories told in this world!
