Review: The Grift of the Magi by Ally Carter

Series: Heist Society Book 3.5
Format: Ebook
Rating: 4 Stars
How I Got It: Borrowed from Overdrive
Genre: Young Adult
Publisher: NLA Digital

Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads
Katarina Bishop is a thief. To many it wouldn’t matter that she now uses her considerable skills to re-steal valuable works of art and return them to their rightful homes.

She’s still a thief.

So that’s why Kat’s surprised when an Interpol agent comes to her one snowy evening, asking for Kat’s help.

The Magi Miracle Network was set to auction off a very rare, very valuable Faberge egg two days before Christmas, but the egg’s been stolen and now the charity’s reputation—and their future—is on the line.
Kat’s family and Interpol might be opposite sides of most jobs, but someone just stole Christmas.

Now it’s up to Kat and her crew to steal it back.

The Grift of the Magi is a Heist Society novella and is approximately half the length of the other novels in the series. It stands alone, but if you want read more about Kat and her crew check out Heist Society, Uncommon Criminals, and Perfect Scoundrels.


I didn't know this book even existed. That's not much of a surprise since I haven't been super involved in a while. But it was a nice surprise because I like Christmas and the Heist Society characters.

So, this was a decent novella. I absolutely loved all the little Kat and Hale moments. They are so adorable and I love them as a couple. The heist/mystery aspect was interesting and nice for the Christmas them. But sometimes I would get confused and not in a good way. Between chapters it felt like I missed things that would've explained the events a little bit. Although that is fairly normal for these books. It still bothers me a little bit.

Thanks for reading!
