Fire & Heist by Sarah Beth Durst Review

If you enjoy Dragons, snarky teenagers, magic, and heist movies, you need to check out this book which the author describes as “Were-dragons meets Oceans 11”.

Sky Hawkins is your typical teenager dealing with heartbreak and being snubbed by her so-called friends. Except that she is a wyvern (half human, half dragon) and her family lives in a semi-celebrity spotlight – so the whole world knows about her heart breaking public breakup with her boyfriend, Ryan, the disappearance of her mother, and her family’s fall from grace. Sky is determined to find her mom, restore her family’s status, and win back Ryan – but how can she do this without the help and support of her brothers and her father?

I LOVED this book. Anything with dragons is usually a big win for me so I knew I had to read the book. I wasn’t expecting for this to be a 5 star read though. I fell in love with the characters and world building in this book. The author made is so easy to visualize what was happening at each major plot point in the novel, the characters were anything but shallow, especially our heroine, Sky, and even though most of the plot was fairly predictable, the fast flying action had me gripping the book and sitting on the edge of my seat for the last 150 pages. I couldn’t put it down!

Recommended for ages 14 and up, anyone who loves a good dragon story or fast paced fantasy.
