Review: Night Thief by Lisa Kessler




After the fall of the Mayan civilization, Kane, an immortal Night Walker, has taken refuge in France for over 800 years. The modern world holds little interest for him until the night he meets the Golden Thief and is robbed of much more than his pocket watch.


Marguerite Rousseau is living a double life. By day she is the assistant to an eccentric French artist, Antoine Berjon, and by night she dons elegant evening gowns to woo French dignitaries before lifting their wallets.

Sparks ignite when Kane captures the thief, but Marguerite harbors a dark secret that could ruin them both.

********

Night Thief stole my breath away from the very first page and I pretty much held it until the last word. Marguerite is a fascinating heroine who confused me as much as she intrigued me. Yet I still felt a deep connection to her although we have absolutely nothing in common. She is quite a match for the immortal Kane. This golden god hooked me right away and I don’t know how the heroine could have held out for as long as she did. This story had a little bit of everything to keep me glued to the pages; secrecy, violence, romance and history. The details and description transported me to another place and time. I cannot wait to read about Kane’s brothers to see if their lifetimes have been as interesting as his. I highly recommend the Night series, it is a beautifully written.
