    Orphan. Runaway. Thief.I really liked Helen Harper's Blood Destiny series, hell I liked it enough to re-read the whole series, though Gifted Thief just didn't do it for me. The main character Integrity annoyed the living shit out of me, with her awful jokes, her thinking too highly of herself (at least that was what I felt) and her lying. I just couldn't stand her. She did have a few good comebacks though. ‘Nice legs. When do they open?’Oh, he so did not want to go there. I fixed him with my [...]

    I guess I am the kind of reader who doesn’t mind a few punctuation mistakes from independent writers who are starting out and do not have the money for editors. I can forgive that. The book doesn’t have to be perfect, but I am a stickler for good writing. For me to really enjoy a book, the writing has to make sense, the writing has to be tight, the language should be good, the characters should be good(I should like the main character), and the interaction between characters should be meanin [...]

    Gifted Thief was a vibrant start to the Highland Magic series.Integrity, an outcast, the runaway, clanless, has been living by her wits and survival skills for almost longer than she can remember. She is shocked to discover the high born clans have been keeping their eye on her. Wanting nothing to do with clans, Integrity is pulled back kicking and screaming into their world of deceit and magical manipulation by none other than Byron, prince charming of the clans.She is the last surviving member [...]

    Review originally posted on The Book Adventures of Annelise Lestrange :)I received this copy through NetGalley in exchange of an honest review. Let's go :DThe StoryIntegrity has to admit that she is not exactly the number one citizen on town. Since escaping the Sidhe domain when she was eleven, Integrity learned everything that a high class thief needs to know and she is the best on what she does.The problem is that you can’t escape your past forever. Especially when it comes on the form of a [...]

    Scotland, thieves, Sihde and magic. There was never a better mix. i'm gonna admit, it was hard to keep up with the Scottish accent at all times in my head, but it was well worth it. Helen Harper brings yet again a world where our 21st century technology is mixed with the magic of the Sihde. It's another story with magic, sexy men and fabulous ladies, guaranteed to draw you in.

    TJ's Blog: tjtimetraveltips.wordpressI thought the book was a helluvaride! I had fun and was entertained from beginning to end. Gifted Thief had many of the elements that I look for in a good novel: interesting story line, intriguing characters, who experience character development throughout the course of the story, humor, romance, some unexpected twists I think Gifted Thief would make a great movie! The CharactersI love Integrity! She's clever, funny, gutsy, athletic, loyal to her friends and [...]

    The eARC for Gifted Thief by Helen Harper was kindly provided to me via Netgalley.DNF Sadly I found the story biting & the h annoying

    I know she wasn’t with hero but WTH she sleeps with his best friend and acts like it’s no big deal just something that happened in the moment! Up until then I loved her snarky humour and the side characters but sleeping with om so casually is not something I like in my books. Unfortunately I won’t be continuing the series.

    Integrity despite being a thief managed to live up to her name. She would steal without batting an eye, but she had a moral code. She didn’t want to take anything that would have sentimental value. It was almost hard to believe she was a thief because she was too caring, but she was raised to do it. It was all she knew. Her life was all about taking risks, but the decisions she made weren’t dumb. She was mouthy and had an attitude sometimes, but she also knew when it was wise to shut up. Int [...]

    2.5 rounded up. I was interested, but literally right when I was wondering if I'd ever really warm up to the heroine, she sleeps with this guy she just met who is also the hero's friend. Yeah, they'd just survived a life and death situation and the sex was a stress response, but when the hero walked in on them it was a bit much for me. AWKWARD! She's so casual about it too and then she later asks the hero why HE sleeps around (she assumed this based on rumors). He got angry, but then shrugged it [...]

    I received a copy of this book from NetGalley. Silver hair, purple eyes, Integrity is a Sidhe. At least she was born one. With no knowledge of what happened to her parents, only hearing ugly rumors, Integrity ran away from that life when she was eleven. Taken in by Taylor, she lives the life of a thief. Now that she's all grown up, she is summoned by the Sidhe. She has no intention of going back, and they must know it because her friends end up in jail, or with a hit on them. The only way to sav [...]

    Is playing around a desirable characteristic in male protagonist nowadays?I've encountered more and more books (especially for teenagers and young adults) featuring plain, upright, and usually boring female leads who somehow are able to capture the hearts of rich, popular womanizers. It's unrealistic that playboys just suddenly stop being playboys and settle down when they find 'the right girl'. In my opinion, a hero doesn't need to be a playboy to be considered hot. Example? Jericho Barrons. 'A [...]

    I liked the concept of this story, but I felt like I was thrown into this world head first. It started off strong, but I was wanting more details on this world created. There were a lot of missing pieces, and details that seemed relevant were barely skimmed over. I wanted more depth. A better understanding of this environment and the characters. Speaking of the characters, they all had an incredibly juvenile feel to them. Overall, it did have potential, but the story execution fell flat for me p [...]

    I enjoyed this book a lot, while being a typical novel length 90,000 words it just is very quickly paced. Loved the main character Integrity, nice name choice as the character picked it for her own and the first chapter has her breaking into a bank. Integrity is loyal, smart and funny, she tells horrible jokes and is a science fiction fan girl, she's also a master thief.I listened to the audiobook and Saskia Maarleveld did a wonderful job as the narrator the characters all sounded distinct and h [...]

    I would give this book 3.5 stars. I don't know why won't let you add the half stars. I liked Integrity, but I did not fall in love with her like I did Mack (Bloodfire series). It's an interesting start to this series. Integrity ran away from the Sidhe when she was a girl and created her family (a band of thieves) after a chance encounter as she ran away.She re-enters the Sidhe world after her father-figure, Taylor, gets in trouble with his bookie who sold his debt. She meets a Sidhe named Byron [...]

    Rating 4.5/5What an intriguing mix of contemporary and fantasy this novel proved to be! Set in Scotland, the Sidhe are the ruling class, with varying magical Gifts, belonging to Clans and looking down on humans and the Clanless. When the orphaned child, Integrity, being brought up in the home of the Bull has had enough, runs away and is rescued by Taylor she turns her back on the Sidhe and becomes a very talented thief. She grows up in age and talent and is happy until the Sidhe appear in her li [...]

    I saw this book months ago, and it caught my eye immediately. Ever since I read Ancient Magic series, I have been wanting to read another urban fantasy. And when I saw this book, its beautiful cover and thiefy title, I immediately know that this book will be the next urban fantansy I will read. However, it isn't until now that I actually feel like reading another urban fantasy book. But let me just say that I am so glad that I finally decided to pick it up. This book was amazing. Definitely reco [...]

    3 STARSThis was only ever meant to be a 'gap' book - you know that book you read when you've just finished a book and you're not sure what to read next? It turned out to be short and sweet so I ended up finishing it just to see what happened. It was a fun affair and while I found myself warming to Integrity and her HORRIBLE sense of humour quickly, the simplicity of the plot and the fact that other characters and plots were not explored drew my rating down to 3 stars.

    Solid Series StartGenre Urban FantasyAge AdultSexual Situations Mild nothing graphic. I had read Ms. Harper's Blood Destiny first three books and found her writing imaginative. With Gifted Thief she goes beyond solid world building to give me believable urban fantasy characters. In the world Harper has built is on of magical and non magical beings living side by side, in a halves vs halves not kinda of world. She is a Sidhe (Pronounced She) and the world is inhabits is one of Fae and Scottish cl [...]

    *I Received a copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.*THIS BOOK WAS AMAZING!!!!!! First off I'd just like to point out that the min character's name is Integrity yet ironically, she is a thief!!! The beginning of the book was a little bit confusing though, but once you kept on reading everything fell into place and made sense. Integrity is such a great character. I loved her kick-ass attitude and her resilience after everything that happened to her including the attempt [...]

    The second half of this book saved it. I was on the verge of DNF-ing after about every chapter at the beginning. The writing wasn't great; it seemed like the author was incredibly inspired by Game of Thrones in the prologue. We have a "girl with no name" who is called a bastard and has long white hair. It is based in a castle with people in long old-fashioned gowns. Then suddenly Integrity runs away and she comes across a car. That threw me a bit. I also couldn't get my head around the fact that [...]

    3.5 Good But A Little Frustrating StarsI enjoyed this one and for most of the book it kept me on my toes. It's mostly paranormal elements as well as a little romance but for the most part this first installment is all action. I know that there's a lot of details that need to be put out there when you write books like these but I can't help but feel like I was left with not enough. Maybe it's too personal of an opinion but I really wished to see more of romance blossom. I'm going to continue on b [...]

    It was fantastic, and it was very entertaining. I love the book, and I can't wait to read the second book. I think it was a strong finish because it was suspenseful and enjoyable. Overall, an amazing read.

    Rating: 3 StarsThis is what I would call a guilty pleasure read.Deceivingly addictive and a page turner.I admit the first 10% of the book, I wanted to quit already. Characters were just thrown into the story without much foundation. The same concept follows the idea of the Sidhe in this book. The idea of the Sidhe was never fully explained which made it extremely confusing in the beginning. Fast forward to 20% in the book and I was completely hooked. I know, I know. It's a complete 180 turn from [...]

    Wow this story was lame and poorly written. (audibleIt was confusing and all over the place. I don't even know how to review this book. I am embarrassed I even finished it. I thought it was going to get better and make sense. It didn't. What a waste of time. Also, this book should be in the YA or 11-13 teens section Paranormal. Not Romance Contemporary. As for the narration, I like Saskia Maarleveld. She does a good job.

    Overall, I enjoyed this. It took a bit to get used to the world building, since there was pretty much none. And few of the things Integrity did didn't sit right with me, however I am interested in seeing how the rest of the story plays out, what really happened to her family, and hopefully some revenge.

    This was such a fun book, ideal for something light to read. Integrity is such a great heroin there is nothing simpering and pathetic about her. There are all kinds of mythical creatures in this book and Integrity manages to befriend a variety of them, all misfits for one reason or another. Integrity is lead to believe here father murdered his own clan the Adair's and that she was the only survivor. After being brought up by another clan Integrity escaped her miserable existence to start a new l [...]

    Rating: 3/5(I received a free ecopy from the publisher, HarperFire, via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review)***Minor spoilers***Integrity Taylor had always been judged based on her father's actions. She is a Sidhe (Faerie, basically) and was raised awfully by a man known to the Sidhe as the bull, simply because her father was apparently a bad person. When Integrity was young, she fled from the Sidhe and a man named Taylor picked her up and introduced her to a life of thievery, which Integ [...]

    This was a fairly uncomplicated, pleasant to read Urban Fantasy set in a paranormal aware Scotland (in the same way that many books are set in generic "England" or "America"). The cover seems to be going out of the way to scream YA or NA, but the main character of Integrity is somewhere around the age of 26-27 and is a fairly sensible career thief with a penchant for telling cheesy jokes at inappropriate moments. I liked that Integrity was a fairly normal and understated person who reminded me o [...]
