Book Review: The Thief, by J. R. Ward (2018).


Sola Morte, former cat burglar and safe-cracker, has given up her old life on the wrong side of the law. On the run from a drug lord’s family, she is lying low far from Caldwell, keeping her nose clean and her beloved grandmother safe. Her heart, though, is back up north, with the only man who has ever gotten through her defenses: Assail, who never meant to fall in love – and certainly not with a human. But they have no future, and not just because she doesn’t know he is a vampire, but because he is not about to stop dealing arms to the Black Dagger Brotherhood.

Fate, however, has other plans for them. When Assail falls into a coma and lingers on the verge of death, his cousins seek out Sola and beg her to give him a reason to live. The last thing she wants is a return to her past, but how can she leave him to die?

As a lethal new enemy of the vampires shows its face, Sola finds herself not only a target, but a mission-critical force in a war she doesn’t understand. And when Assail’s truth comes out, will she run from the horror . . . or follow her heart into the arms of the male who loves her more than life itself?


The Thief is J. R. Ward’s latest instalment in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, and she does not disappoint either! Vishious and Doc Jane are one of my favourite couples, and the storyline in which makes their relationship stronger since the previous showed them drifting apart, really was good. I am glad that it didn’t end with devastation! Just as the relationship between Sola and Assail. They really make a great couple. Which of course makes an amazing storyline written by an amazing author.

The storyline that focuses on Throe, really has peaked my interest. An evil amongst their own kind is something the Black Dagger Brotherhood has dealt with before, however it was with the persuasion and interference off the Omega. This time it is the interference of something else entirely.

I have enjoyed this novel and I would recommend this book along with the entire series to anyone interested in the Vampire genre that is entwined with a little romance. Overall, I give this book a rating of 8/10 stars. I can’t wait till the next book is out!
