Sky Hawkins dreams of completing her first heist. In her family of wyverns--humans able to turn into dragons--stealing treasure is a right of passage and Sky is ready. However, when her opportunity comes, there is much more at stake than Sky ever expected. After her mother recently went missing, Sky’s family seems to be falling apart. Now Sky has the chance to lead a heist that leads not only to a valuable jewel, but also to the truth of what happened to her mother.
Described by the author as Ocean’s Eleven with were-dragons, Fire and Heist will appeal to both the adventure and fantasy crowd. There is plenty of action, humor, and dragons to please all types of readers. The characters are quirky and enjoyable and the writing is clever and fast-paced. A light read I greatly enjoyed.
