Ilanna survived their training. Now five years older from the events of Child of the Night Guild, Ilanna puts all her skills towards one task: protecting her young son. A son the Night Guild doesn't know about. And she plans on keeping it that way. There's only one way to do it. She'll have to buy her way out of the Night Guild.
But the Night Guild doesn't easily let go of useful tools. She will need to pull of a burglary of such prestige, of such wealth, to win her freedom. And Ilanna is nothing if not daring. She has a plan to not only destroy the most dangerous threat to the Night Guild in Praamis but to earn millions.
And it will require doing the impossible.
Peloquin shifts gears with this book. While the last one was more biopic, following GiRL from the age of seven until her early twenties as she has her ups and downs dealing with her rival, the brutal Sabot, this book is a heist thriller through and through. And with all the grimdark fantasy elements Peloquin is so skilled at balancing.
Thief of the Night Guild is a riveting read, keeping you following the intricacies of Ilanna plan as she has to overcome new obstacles, deal with dubious allies, and race against the clock to get everything ready for her window. Because if she doesn't, more than she will pay the price.
In book one, Child of the Night Guild, I was so traumatized by the happenings of a little girl known as “7” who is later named Ilanna. Ilanna was determined to prove herself worthy of being one of the apprentices of House Hawk. After reading book one, I was convinced it was the best novel I’d ever read. Until I read book two, Thief of the Night Guild.
Ilanna wants to buy her freedom from the Guild, but can she survive a monumental task she sets for herself? One that no one before her has ever accomplished? Read on to be led on the adventures of a lifetime.
My fingers could not turn the pages fast enough while reading Thief of the Night Guild. Seriously, I WATCHED this book play out before me .. like reading a movie. Speaking of movies, both books thus far in this series should be movies. Imagine a series with similarities to The Divergent Series, or The Hunger Games Series. To me, better than Game of Thrones, and comparable to Lord of The Rings. I highly recommend this phenomenal series by Andy Peloquin. If you’re looking for romance or erotica, move on, but if you want that something DIFFERENT, exciting, heart wrenching, and full of speed, look no further. This book is for you.
I love all the characters in this book but Ilanna is my favourite girl . She is kick ass and takes no prisoners . She has been through a lot but it seems the more she gets knocked down the more she gets up and fights back. She goes through a lot in this installment . She has taken all that the guild has thrown at her. She has honed her skills and plans on using them to save herself and get out of the guild . To the only person that she loves , her son , the only person that matters to her. She is five years older and tougher then nails . I so love her attitude and her guts . She will do anything to survive and be free .
I can't tell you about all the characters in this book cause I will be writing forever . But the guild members that can call Ilanna a friend are all there to watch her back and help her out in the heist that she is planning to pay for her way out . The characters that you think are bad turn out to be on the Ilanna's side and the ones closest to her are the ones that can not be trusted . I will say you will fall for these characters , they are very complex and deep . You will also want to slap a couple of them upside the head a few times .
While I was reading this book , which I couldn't put down , I could see the book in my mind . Playing like a movie . Which to me is a sign of a very well written story . It takes you on a roller coaster ride . You will be on the edge of your seat most of the time . You will cheer for Ilanna and her group of thieves . You will have a couple of chuckles along the way . Trust me your heart will melt when you read her story with her son . I was an emotional wreck when I was reading parts of this story . This isn't your run of the mill book where there is a happy ever after in the end . You will have your heart broken into a million pieces . The ending will destroy you trust me on this , I really just wanted to yell at the author for what he did . If you like fantasy this is the book for you . If you like dark fantasy this is the book for you. It is going to be one of the books I read over and over . This isn't a stand alone , you have to read the first book to keep everything straight . So if you want a great dark series that will keep you up all night long turning the pages . This is the series for you . A definite must read for your summer reading list .
