Review: Little Thieves by Margaret Owen

Title: Little Thieves

Series: Little Thieves #1

Author: Margaret Owen

Once upon a time, there was a horrible girl…

Vanja Schmidt knows that no gift is freely given, not even a mother’s love–and she’s on the hook for one hell of a debt. Vanja, the adopted goddaughter of Death and Fortune, was Princess Gisele’s dutiful servant up until a year ago. That was when Vanja’s otherworldly mothers demanded a terrible price for their care, and Vanja decided to steal her future back… by stealing Gisele’s life for herself.

The real Gisele is left a penniless nobody while Vanja uses an enchanted string of pearls to take her place. Now, Vanja leads a lonely but lucrative double life as princess and jewel thief, charming nobility while emptying their coffers to fund her great escape. Then, one heist away from freedom, Vanja crosses the wrong god and is cursed to an untimely end: turning into jewels, stone by stone, for her greed.

Vanja has just two weeks to figure out how to break her curse and make her getaway. And with a feral guardian half-god, Gisele’s sinister fiancé, and an overeager junior detective on Vanja’s tail, she’ll have to pull the biggest grift yet to save her own life.

‘Little thieves go to the gallows.’

Vanja, the adopted daughter of Death and Fortune has taken over Princess Gisele’s life, thieving, so she can make a break for it but she has attracted the attention of junior prefect Emeric Conrad!!!!

On top of that she also has an evil fiance, Aldalbrecht, and also a curse to deal with!

With a small crew, they try to find a way to beat it all! 

I must admit I found the first 15% hard going but after that, I got into it and loved it!

I loved Vanja, she is so naughty but so likeable. Emeric is so lovely! I want a prefect!!!!!

Now I can’t wait for Painted Devils as I need more Vanja and Emeric!
