Ruthless commander. Cunning thief. Deadly blademaster.
Narra is a second generation thief raised in the Guild by her iron-fisted father. Growing up, she dreamed his death would free her, but when he shows up dead in the wreckage of a train destroyed by the Revolution, the happiest day of her life is ruined by one word: traitor.
Her father is accused of betraying the only thing she thought he ever really loved; the Thieves Guild. To prove his innocence, and remove the stain from her name, Narra will go to darker places than she ever thought possible and be forced to work with people she doesn’t dare trust.
If she fails, she’ll lose more than her sanity or her life.
She’ll lose the Guild.
Set in a steampunk world on the cusp of civil war, Queen of Thievesintroduces a dark tale where family lies, magic might be real, and thieves fall for revolutionary princesses.

“But they avoided her. They’d never touch her with such fondness or sincerity. She was cold, heartless – a villain even among thieves.”
Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the author, and agreed to provide an honest review.
Can I first just start off by saying that I am a sucker for YA books with a bad ass heroine that doesn’t give a crap what others think? Okay I guess that’s my second disclaimer for the review.
Second of all, I think that this series will be one of my favorites in the near future, and I’m going to have to get me some physical copies to add to my collection. The eBook just doesn’t do it justice! I absolutely am in love with Narra. From the beginning of the book, you can see the type of woman she is. I don’t even know if I can consider her to be a typical female MC, because honestly she just has this aura of “IDGAF if you like me” and I’m all for it.
Plus her dad is a drunk piece of turd that really needs to step the heck down and let his daughter run things, but that’s none of my business.
I thoroughly enjoyed Bogle’s prose. Her writing style is one of my favorites so far, and I know that now I’m going to have to read the rest of her work sometime soon. Also, I need to find out what else is going to happen in Narra’s life, because there is no way that I can just end it like that.
Absolutely no way.
