The Smoke Thief - Shana Abe This book was pretty good. Sort of intriguing but very predictable. You could pretty much tell exactly where the book was going from page 1, but that's not to say it isn't an enjoyable read, because it it. The main characters were relatable, and fleshed out, they were a good match and Rue definitely didn't just roll over for Kit, she made him work for it. On an interesting note, there wasn't you'd call a 'bad guy' in the book, that's pretty well accepted in every book, but not this one! There were a couple enemies but none of them were villains, it was an interesting plot choice, that definitely paid off. All in all it was an enjoyable read, and definitely worth a shot.
