Angel Thief by Jenny Schwartz

Angel Thief by Jenny Schwartz
* I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*
 
She’s breaking the rules. Again.
An archivist in the heavenly library, Sara must follow protocol when it comes to curating the knowledge of the universe. But “liberating” an ancient text from the collection of a human—an Australian drug lord—could save a boy’s life. Sara has no way of knowing that one of the man’s other treasures is a sexy-as-sin djinni, bound by a wish to guard the estate.
 
He’s only following orders.
Filip is compelled to turn over intruders, even celestial ones, to his master. When he catches Sara in the library, he isn’t above indulging in some sensual kisses with her, or using her to trick the mobster into wasting a wish. It’s what he must do to preserve his facade of freedom and protect his heart.  But the kidnapping of the drug lord’s daughter forces Sara and Filip to work together—bringing out the hero that lurks within the soul of the djinni, and the passion within the angel.

Angel Thief is more than just a tale of good vs. evil, it’s about the choices we make as human and the consequences of those choices.  A drug lord’s daughter is kidnapped for revenge and he orders his djinni to rescue her while he plans an attack on the kidnapper.

Filip is used to being at the command of others, he is a djinni.  His is a life of servitude from one master until the next.  In history, only 1 djinni has been freed from his bottle and Filip is ok with that until he meets Sara.

Sara works in the library in Heaven.  She loves her job but is bored and has started sneaking old texts to try and find a cure for a young boy that is dying.  She knows she’s breaking the rules but she is sure the reward will outweigh the consequences.  Her quest leads her to the library of a drug lord that is guarded by a djinni.

Sara is inherently good but naïve.  She wants to help people and is not afraid of the punishment she will receive if caught.  She wants more out of life and feels alive when she has a purpose.  She is drawn to Filip and doesn’t understand her reaction to him; he is sexy and makes her feel things she has never felt before.  She is willing to risk everything to help him save Jay, the drug lord’s daughter.

Filip is bound to his bottle and his master’s bidding.  When he finds Sara in the library, he is compelled to take her to Vince.  It goes against everything in his being to turn her over to Vince, especially after he has had a taste of her but he has no choice.  He is not inherently bad but has done things he is not proud of because he has to do his master’s bidding.

I was pulling for Sara and Filip to find a way to be together, despite the obstacles they were facing.  The chemistry between them was evident from the beginning, even though they came from two different worlds.  They worked together to save not only Jay but Kahn too.

This story is so much more than just a story.  It’s about love, redemption, forgiveness and the choices we make in life.  Sara has faith in humanity and in the end, it pays off and her dreams come true.  For the first time in his life, Filip begins to dream about love and a future, not tied to his bottle.

Overall Angel Thief is a refreshing story that helps restore our faith in humanity and love.  I give it 4 Flaming Hearts.
