First of all, I don't read YA books. It's simply not a genre I enjoy. But I couldn't wait to read THIS book because I had read the related adult-romance book, Dodging Trains, and I'm also a HUGE fan of Sunniva's.
And she didn't disappoint!
Cugs had it rough. I mean, super rough. Reading his "flashbacks" were truly heartbreaking. That and the fact that he was conflicted and wanted to better himself made for quite an interesting read.
Nadine is adorable! I loved her. I especially loved how she and Cugs met and then found each other again years later. She was an excellent foil to Cugs.
This was just an all-around emotional and touching story, and it just goes to show that Sunniva can knock it outta the park no matter what she writes!
(I received a copy of this book in consideration of an honest review)
5 PATH OF THIEVES STARS!! Awe....I loved Cugs, this poor kid has a terrible life and it broke my heart. I enjoyed seeing this story play out for Cugs and Nadine. Sunniva Dee always delivers with a great story and characters. I highly suggest picking up this book, it is so worth it. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
