SUMMARY: 

In Sky Hawkins's family, leading your first heist is a major milestone--even more so than learning to talk, walk, or do long division. It's a chance to gain power and acceptance within your family, and within society. But stealing your first treasure can be complicated, especially when you're a wyvern--a human capable of turning into a dragon.

Embarking on a life of crime is never easy, and Sky discovers secrets about her mother, who recently went missing, the real reason her boyfriend broke up with her, and a valuable jewel that could restore her family's wealth and rank in their community.

With a handpicked crew by her side, Sky knows she has everything she needs to complete her first heist, and get her boyfriend and mother back in the process. But then she uncovers a dark truth about were-dragon society--a truth more valuable and dangerous than gold or jewels could ever be.
 

My REVIEW

Dragons and Heists. What more do I need?

I think my main issue with Fire & Heist were my high expectations. I wanted a Six of Crows meets Game of Thrones ,but at the end of the day, the book is really cute and fun read.

One main issue for me was the world building. I felt lost and had a million questions about the world we were in. The characters are not particularly my favorite and I feel like for a heist novel you have to raise the stakes, making you care about the gang. Sky’s really carries the whole book for me. She is snarky, strong and a bit stubborn.

The romance is super sweet and cute. Durst break’s YA novel stereotype of the dark and cocky guy, and our love interest ,Ryan, is a really sweet guy.

The plot made sense and there weren’t any holes like in some heist movies (yes, I am looking at you Ocean’s 8). Honestly for me, the humor was the best part of this book.

Durst is not afraid to write about series topics and points flaws in our society. I feel like the book had a great potential, maybe 100 pages more to add more world building and character development and it would have been a 5 star read.

Fire & Heist is a super-fast read, action-packed and a warm good heart feel.
