    Totally brilliant....review to come! Here it is....... I loved Half Bad and I was nervous about whether this book would work, would it be any good, could Sally Green do it again and have another success on her hands..... well the answer is yes to all of those questions, this book is...

    I've never read any books by Sally Green, but after reading Smoke Thieves, I should probably rectify that problem! I absolutely loved this book. The Smoke Thieves is a high fantasy revolving around several characters, similar to the setup of Falling Kingdoms. The characters are all in...

    ?She thought of Ambrose still, every day? Every paragraph, it felt like. I'm really disappointed with The Smoke Thieves. I was hoping this would be an opportunity to rekindle my love for Green's books after Half Bad's sequels dampened it. Unfortunately, this is an overlong, ...

    Thanks to Netgalley and Penguin Random House UK for giving me this book to review Smoke Thieves is a really good high fantasy novel with adventure, political intrigue and demons. I really like the five different point of views and how their stories started off as mostly separate but...

    Let's throw all the fantasy tropes against a wall and see what sticks. While leaving the basic premise completely unexplained. At least it was well written. ...

    This was really very good but frustrating at the same time. The story is told from several characters? points of view and it is obvious that their paths will cross from fairly early on. But they don?t all meet up until the last part of the book. Also, it ends just as the story is c...

    Tash had thought demons were scary, but men could be just as bad. Oh no, I lost count of how many characters died. Hahaha. I don't care about Game of Thrones, but fans of the latter might like this book indeed. Reading it was such a delight, especially because I simultaneously liste...

    so if you cant tell by the last 5 books or so that i have read, i am on a huge fantasy binge. but i think i may have to take a break after this one as it kinda threw off my rhythm. not that this was bad - it was just so dang slow. when i want fantasy, i want quick action-packed boo...

    Shockingly it took me 201 years to finish reading this. Which...isn't...like me. I'm typically the person who devours a book and then sits atop a mountain screaming at the sun, you know?? A chill life. And I truly love Sally Green's style! The Half Bad trilogy is my life. I've read it ...

    ARC provided by Viking in exchange for an honest review. The Smoke Thieves is a medieval fantasy that centers around five characters, and each chapter alternates between five POV?s. While these characters may live in different kingdoms, one thing that remains true in each kingdom ...

    Well wow. I must admit I was so nervous about reading this book because I loved the Half Bad series so much. I didn't really know what this book was about, other than it was a historical fantasy. Sally had mentioned a year or two ago to me that she was writing a fantasy, and at that...

    I wondered when I finished the ?Half Bad? series how on earth Sally Green would follow that up with anything even close to it?s addictive brilliance ? turns out that wasn?t even a problem as she brings us ?The Smoke Thieves? a multi-layered character drama set in a politi...

    It's been a long time since I read a fantasy book, and I don't think I've ever read one with this many perspectives before, and I have to admit: I was blown away by how much I enjoyed it! Yeah, yeah, the pacing could have been amped up a little bit, but I thought all of the differe...

    this might be good, but i'm not reading it. sally green is one of my blacklisted authors. and since i very, VERY rarely blacklist authors (usually i will read them but put their books on my coveted "author-is-a-dick-but-good-writer" shelf) that is saying a LOT. literally the ONLY o...

    'The Smoke Thieves' had me thoroughly captivated as soon as I started to read it, and I can honestly say I didn't want to be interrupted at all once I fell into this brilliant medieval fantasy that author Sally Green has created. Woven around five main characters, from different walks ...

    Overall, it was an enjoyable read most of the time, but I think it has lots of gaps to be a great series than an average one. I see very mixed reviews on Goodreads too. For now I?m guessing I enjoyed it enough to continue to the series. And I?m very curious because of the big cliff...

    I really enjoyed this book.......... a lot. One of my new favorites!!!!!! It is an epic young adult fantasy with five POVs coming together from all over the world and colliding together with a BAAM!!! I love how we get to see all five of them spread out in different countries and doing...

    3.5 STARS For the first book in a series, Smoke Thieves introduced an intriguing array of characters and set the scene nicely for the following books. However, as a fan of more intricately-plotted fantasy with a real emphasis on world-building this book failed to make a lasting impr...

    It was a little ambitious and a little insane * * 2 / 5 I read and liked Green's "Half Bad", but it wasn't really my genre. The Smoke Thieves, however, seemed right up my reading alley - a fantasy novel, a princess looking to rebel, a demon hunter, some sort of intriguing poli...

    Anybody know the little known book/television series "Game of Thrones"? If you know of the series, do you remember the Red Wedding? Well, if you could make a book with all the action and emotions of that episode.....this would be that book. Do not get me wrong, both this book and t...

    Release date: May 1, 2018 3.5 stars. I thought this was a great start to a series and think it's going to be super popular! I was a bit more enthusiastic at the start, but still like the way everything turned out. The Game of Thrones comparison might set up the reader to be a bi...

    I really liked this book! The world was so complex, but that also made it really interesting to read about! I really liked the five different POV's, though it took me a while to get used to it. After the first 100 pages I was really confused about who was who and what they wanted etc...

    someone just recommended this to me directly as having "lgbtq rep" which is great, but why in god's name would I read, for the Gay Content, a book by an author who literally killed both their gay characters? answer me this. why would I trust that they wouldn't die? why would i ever hav...

    Whoops, I accidently read this in a day. I wasn't sure if having five points of view squeezed into one book would actually work but it did as every character was completely unique, even when I forgot to check whose chapter is was, I knew exactly who was speaking due to their tone of vo...
