Stealing Phoenix by Joss Stirling

For Review: OUP
Published: 1 September 2011

From Goodreads: Yves' story.

This is about getting you out...I'm stealing you.

Phoenix belongs to the Community - a gang of thieves with paranormal powers. Yves Benedict - an American student visiting London - is her mark. But Yves turns out to be more than just a target. He is her destiny. Her soulmate. But the Community owns Phoenix's past and it wants her future too.

Being a big fan of Finding Sky I was really looking forward to catching up with those Benedict boys!

This time the story is centered around Yves and his soulfinder Phoenix. Told from her point of view we are thrust into her world of thievery and danger. The Seer really is rather scary!

I loved Phoenix! She's feisty, strong and the perfect match for Yves. And Yves is just as gorgeous as I remember him from Finding Sky. In fact all the Benedict boys are rather gorgeous and I love the banter between them. How they tease each other but obviously care for each other. I love the sense of family there is in these stories.  Plus it's great to catch up with Sky and Zed and see how they are doing.

There is a bit of predictability in the sense you go into this knowing it will all work out - but the journey getting there is sooo much fun! I really hope there are many more in this series - especially for Xav and Victor (there is something about him I just love!). I'd also like to know a bit more about how they know when they've found their soulfinder. In both instances it's been Zed or Yves that's known so I just wondered if there is a reason for that. Plus is there a reason both Sky and Phoenix are English? But maybe I'm just over thinking it. 

A really, really enjoyable series and I can't wait to get my next fix!

Yay! I loved this book, and I am really, really hoping for a book for Xav - I think he's my favourite! :D
