◮ I don`t think love should be an escape. And I don`t think it should be about power either. I think love should make you stronger. A better person, not a worse one.

WARNING: This review is going to be all over the place. I just find it very difficult to review books that I loved.

There are cases in which you want to read a book for the beautiful cover, others because of the author and others because the plot is intriguing. In this case, for me, it`s the title. I don`t know why precisely, it just gave me this feeling of sadness and loneliness, and I was very excited to read it, even those books that romanticise this kind of things BUT I am so happy to tell you that I was so, so, so wrong for once. I`m not going to go into details because I don`t want to spoil anything but OMG this book is a real pearl.

Title: The smoke thieves
Author: Sally Green
Publisher: Penguin Books
Price:   paperback £ 7,99
                ebook £ 4,99
Plot: A princess, a traitor, a soldier, a hunter and a thief.

Five teenagers with the fate of the world in their hands.
Five nations destined for conflict.

In Brigant, Princess Catherine prepares for a political marriage arranged by her brutal and ambitious father, while her true love, Ambrose, faces the executioner's block.
In Calidor, downtrodden servant March seeks revenge on the prince who betrayed his people. In Pitoria, feckless Edyon steals cheap baubles for cheaper thrills as he drifts from town to town.
And in the barren northern territories, thirteen-year-old Tash is running for her life as she plays bait for the gruff demon hunter Gravell.
As alliances shift and shatter, and old certainties are overturned, our five heroes find their past lives transformed and their futures inextricably linked by the unpredictable tides of magic and war.
Who will rise and who will fall? And who will claim the ultimate prize?

It`s going to be really difficult to write a review for this book because, on one hand, I really enjoyed it, but on the other, it felt quite dull.
Let`s start 
You all know I loved Half Bad but I didn`t have high expectations for this book because we all know where that leads -disappointment-. I liked that there were multiple main characters because we get to know the different sides of the story
