[Archive] LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of Time Thief

For as long as she can remember, Katie MacAlister has loved reading. Growing up in a family where a weekly visit to the library was a given, Katie spent much of her time with her nose buried in a book. Despite her love for novels, she didn't think of writing them until she was contracted to write a non-fiction book about software. Since her editor refused to allow her to include either witty dialogue or love scenes in the software book, Katie swiftly resolved to switch to fiction, where she could indulge in world building, tormenting characters, and falling madly in love with all her heroes.

Two years after she started writing novels, Katie sold her first romance, Noble Intentions. More than thirty books followed during the years after Noble's publication. Her novels have been translated into numerous languages, been recorded as audiobooks, received several awards, and placed on the New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists. She also writes for the young adult audience as Katie Maxwell, and for the mystery world as Kate Marsh.

Katie lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and dogs, and can often be found lurking around online.

Time Thief, TIME THIEF Book #1
by Katie MacAlister

Outcast due to their ability to manipulate time, shunned by the mortal and immortal worlds alike, a Traveller’s life is anything but easy.

Peter Faa is a member of the Watch tracking down a murderer, and unfortunately, all clues seem to point toward his own estranged family of Travellers. Any of his cousins could be guilty, but which one? They’re all experts in the art of stealing time...

After surviving a lightning strike, Kiya Mortenson is determined to get just one thing in her life right. And if that means taking a job as nanny to five pugs on a campsite in the Oregon wilderness, then so be it. It doesn’t hurt that the job comes with some spectacular male eye candy, including her new boss’s gorgeous grandson. If only she didn’t keep having this strange sense of deja vu...

When Peter discovers his own family is stealing time from Kiya, all bets are off. While she may drive him crazy at times, it’s clear that it’s not just lightning that’s creating some serious sparks between them. And he’s not going to let secrets, lies, or a devious murderer keep Kiya from where she belongs: at his side.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:
*eARC received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Time Thief was a fantastically unique story with incredible, witty dialogue, fabulous characters, & great undertone.

I've met some delightful heroines in my time as a Katie MacAlister fan girl, but none as wonderful as Kiya Mortenson! She's quirky, energetic, spontaneous, and easily loved. Her inner dialogue is hilarious, and while she had traits I wish I had, there was a lot about her that I could relate with as well. She's just one of those heroines that you can't help but root for.

Peter Faa,our hero, is Kiya's opposite. He's disciplined, determined, and stoic a lot of the time, but he's got this incredible dry sense of humor and a heart of gold.

Our leading couple along with the supporting cast create a wonderful filling for this delightful new world. The Travellers and all of the history that Katie has created for them carve a new niche in the Paranormal Romance genre by being unlike anything I've encountered before, and something I am eagerly hoping to get lost in again very soon.

LITERAL ADDICTION gives Time Thief 4 1/2 Skulls and definitely recommends it if you're looking for something fresh, funny, sexy and new.
