The Art of Stealing Time

A Time Thief Novel, #2

I was instantly taken into a mystical magical world with people with special powers and alternate afterlives. This is the second book in this series but it’s based within the same wonderful world Ms MacAlister developed for many of her other books. Fans of hers will recognize her humor and off beat way of looking at things. Characters come alive as Gwen tries to protect her moms from the Watch who thinks Gwen is one of her mothers! Gregory Faa is a member of the Watch and also infatuated with Gwen. But Gregory isn’t the only one trying to find Gwen. She has a servant of Death looking to take her soul and two thugs wanting to take her to their boss, dead or alive. There is plenty of action and adventure as Gwen evades everyone only to find herself fighting in a war! Fast paced and just a fantastic story. An absolute must read for any fan of Katie MacAlister and anyone who likes a bit of humor with their paranormal romance!

Gwen has spent most of her very long life taking care of her mothers. Yes, mothers. She has two. Gwen just was released from jail after the Watch though she was one of her mothers and now she learns that they are once again selling magical items to mortals! Unknown to Gwen, not only does she have a scribe following her every move but she has two members of the Watch observing her. Gregory and his cousin Peter are members of the Watch. Gregory is still in his probation. When he sees Gwen he follows her only to find her dead. Without thinking he steals time from the reclaimation agent taking Gwen to a time prior to her death. Then, he saves her. Unfortunately, that only starts a string of events that has Gwen running with her mothers and a kidnapped senior citizen while being chased by various people, including Gregory! If she slows down, will she be dead or will she find love?
