[REVIEW] Little Thieves by Margaret Owen

[REVIEW] Little Thieves by Margaret Owen

Another book where I had no idea what I was going into, but that completely surprised me by being better than I could’ve imagined.

Vanja, adopted by Death and Fortune after her own family abandons her, must steal and lie to survive but is cursed by a god she attempts to steal from.

Vanja is a new favorite. She was the perfect morally gray character, and I could really see her motivation for everything she did. I loved seeing her arc as she allowed herself to forge relationships with Emeric, Gisele and Ragne. I was rooting for her the whole way even when she was doing something I wanted to scream at her for.

The story was constantly exciting and so character focused. It also had LGBTQ+ rep and lots of casual mentions of trans people which I always love to see.

The ending did feel a bit rushed through, and I wasn’t sure about the narrative style it took, but it was such a small part of the story that I barely even noticed.

Definitely glad I read this fantasy, and I will be sure to pick up more of Owen’s works.

Rating: ★★★★1/2
