Publisher's Summary

In a world where an industrial revolution is powered by magic, Tyen, a student of archaeology, unearths a sentient book called Vella. Once a young sorcerer-bookbinder, Vella was transformed into a useful tool by one of the greatest sorcerers of history. Since then she has been collecting information, including a vital clue to the disaster Tyen’s world faces.Elsewhere, in an land ruled by priests, Rielle the dyer’s daughter has been taught that to use magic is to steal from the Angels. Yet she knows she has a talent for it, and that there is a corrupter in the city willing to teach her how to use it – should she dare to risk the Angels’ wrath.Yet not everything is as Tyen and Rielle have been raised to believe. Not the nature of magic, nor the laws of their lands… and not even the people they trust.

This book had me the whole time. That seems to be happening more and more rarely, so this was a treasure. My only issue was Hannah Norris' frequent butchering of what sounded like it was trying to be middle eastern. Sometimes the R rolling was so atrocious I winced. If a narrator is able to maintain an accent, then by all means-- I love them! Differences in dialects welcome too! But Norris would drop, pick up, and overdo the accent frequently.

Cartwright was fantastic in his narration so I gave the performance 3 stars solely for his ability.

The rest was A+ in my opinion, so I was able to listen to the full book without losing all the ambiance of the novel.

Great part one

Would you listen to Thief's Magic again? Why?

Great world building and interesting 'origin' stories for two protagonists, i will have to read it again when second part comes out.

What other book might you compare Thief's Magic to and why?

It's hard to tell. Story is original and in style more adult than her previous books. Little steam punk but in feeling closer to Mistborn than steam-punky books.

What does Grant Cartwright and Hannah Norris bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Narration is very unobtrusive, clear and enjoyable. nothing feels forced and characters are well defined.

Any additional comments?

It seems like we got new great fantasy series. Just beware, it IS first part of trilogy, not first book in a series with separate stories. After it finishes you get the depressing waiting period till second part comes out.
