Fire and Heist by Sarah Beth Durst


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.

Jan’s Review

I read this along with fairy loot read along that they hosted on their blog as it was the book they included in their December box. Going into the book I knew two things it was about the heist and it was about were dragons. Now both those things together brought to mind antics and secrets that were sure to lead to heartache. The story starts out with the siblings working on a heist together, in this world dragons are not actual dragons but they are more human and have no way to get back to their home or to change into dragons.

A majority of the story focuses on how Sky is going to find her mom and restore her family legacy after she discovers that her mom disappeared in her boyfriend’s dads vault. She then gathers her crew to help her break into Ryans vault where the item her mom was trying to steal is held.

Once the vault heist happens all the secrets you been waiting for are all unveiled and this is where we get all the fun dragon stuff that you been waiting for. This book is a relatively quick read that was a delight to read it not overly heavy I would call it more of a light fantasy read. I read one other book by this author it was a middle grade and I really enjoyed that one as well. That one called the stone girl.
