Katarina is the daughter of a master thief and has been pulling jobs since she was a kid, but that isn’t the life she wants. Unfortunately for Kat, getting out of the heist society isn’t easy, especially when your father is accused of stealing a dangerous mobsters paintings. Now Kat must find the paintings and steal them back before she loses more than her chance at an ordinary life.
I listened the audiobook of Heist Society, and man am I glad I did! I’m not sure how Angela Dawe did it, but she has the sexiest male character voice ever. I was in love with W. W. Hale the fifth so hard and so fast I got whiplash. Seriously. If there was nothing else in this book but a bunch of Hale and Katarina scenes I would have left this reading experience completely content.
I have written a lot of letters to imaginary book boyfriends over the years, but your the first one that I felt giddy about writing to. You are so real that I can’t help but feel that somehow you will manage to read this and then come look at me and smirk in that way you do. I know you could have any girl you want, except for the one girl you do want, but if you ever want to make her jealous, I am totally at your disposal.

Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on your point of view, this book is about more than Hale. The plot is fun if not seriously thought-provoking. There was even a twist that caught me off guard, which is more than I can say for most novels these days. My favourite aspect (outside of Hale, of course) is Carter’s writing style. It is a confident style glazed with humour and sprinkled with moments of brilliance. Without a doubt, this series is a must read for all YA fans.
Don’t just take my word for it!
