Blog Tour: The Star Thief by Jamie Grey

I received a copy of The Star Thief in exchange for my review.

Renna is one of the most sought after thieves in the galaxy, particularly to those that know she is the elusive Star Thief. After saving a young boy, and almost getting caught Renna ends up with a job working for the government, and the secret organisation, MYTH. Not only that, her  old mentor, Finn, is the Captain of her team, and Renna can't help revisiting the feelings she had for him when they were both younger. But the mission is more complicated than Renna ever expected, and her and the rest of the team are forced to make some difficult decisions.

I LOVED The Star Thief! It seems to me that after not being able to find a decent sci-fi book with a strong female lead, lots are coming at once! Not that I'm complaining...turns out I'm a sucker for action packed sci-fis with romance!

Renna is a strong character, she has her code and she doesn't like to break it, and even though she is a thief, she has morals that she refuses to break, which is a good thing for any character to have. She is also a highly independent person, which makes her feelings for Finn, and giving into them, so much sweeter, and a good story line.

It was clear from early on that Renna and Finn had chemistry between them, but I'll be honest, this is the first book that I've read in which I've thought that it might not be possible for a couple to get romantically involved. Well that was until the events when the pair got captured, and then there was a FINALLY moment (one of those where you talk to the book as well!)

I thought that this would be a book that I would like but not love, turns out I was completely and utterly wrong, I loved it, a lot, and can't wait for the next one, which I have high hopes for!

Synopsis:
Stealing another galactic secret will get her arrested, but playing by the rules might just get her killed.
At twenty-three, Renna Carrizal is the most notorious thief in the galaxy. There's just one problem - all she wants is to get out of the business.
But after Renna rescues an injured boy on her final job, she finds herself on the run from the mob instead of enjoying retirement. She unwittingly becomes ensnared by MYTH, a top-secret galactic protection agency who offer her a choice - either help them on their latest mission, or spend the rest of her life on a prison ship.
Forced to work under the watchful eye of handsome but arrogant Captain Finn, Renna learns the former mercenary-turned-hero has a few dirty secrets himself. As Renna works to discover the truth about Finn's past and keep the tantalizing man at arm's length, she unearths a plot to create an unstoppable army. The target? The human star fleet.
Now Renna must pull off the biggest job of her career - saving the galaxy. And maybe even herself.





Jamie Grey spent most of her childhood writing stories about princesses who saved the day and pretending to be a daring explorer. It wasn’t until much later that she realized she should combine the two. Now, as a tech-obsessed gamer geek, her novels mix amazing scientific developments, future worlds, and the remarkable characters that live in them.

Jamie lives in Michigan with her boyfriend and their pets, who luckily tolerate her overspending on tea, books, and video games. You can learn more about her at www.jamiegreybooks.com, or follow her on twitter via @jamie_grey.
