DNF: The Grift of the Magi (A Heist Society Novella) by Ally Carter

The Grift of the Magi is a holiday-themed Heist Society novella eBook, written and published by Ally Carter via NLA Digital LLC in 2016.

Our series’ heroine, Kat Bishop, has established herself as a thief who re-steals valuable artwork and returns it to its rightful owners. The latest item she must steal back is a rare Faberge egg for a charity in London.

I read 75% of this novella, enough to get a firm grasp on the story as a whole, but admittedly lost interest in the mystery, and especially in the new cast of characters, once they’re snowed in at a British mansion. Kat’s insecurity around her boyfriend, Hale – namely, comparing herself to the wealthier girls who are also interested in him – was redundant from the previous book, and I didn’t like that Hale never seemed to reassure her.

If you can’t get enough Heist Society and are looking for a short read for the holidays, this story gives you more of the characters you love, but isn’t altogether necessary to the series.
