*This is the third book (novella-length) in The Darkling Chronicles series*

Natcha is a creature of fire, drawing in shadow to cloak herself from the dangers of the world. She has never known what she is or where she came from, but she knows her wings and claws make her different. The sea cliffs of Montenai are her home, the Aglatian Sea her playground, and the phantoms her family.

All her life, she has hidden in the Faunlier Mountains with her sister Nalene. Only the oath she swore as a child to a darkling father to watch over his son draws her toward the turmoil in Shadowland.

When unrest among the darklings, satyrs, nymphs, and dragon lords begins to bleed into her own life, Natcha wagers the welfare of one against the welfare of many. To protect all she holds dear, she must incur the wrath of Shadowland’s leaders and become… the Thief.

But when power and love collide, can either really win?

    Wow!! This series continues to be amazing!

    Shadow Thief – 5 Stars Wow! This story has to be my favorite yet, and that’s a hard thing decide, because I love them all. As I love the bond of sisters in real life with my own, it was a pleasure to get to know another set of sisters, Natcha and Nalene. Natcha is the eldest of the sisters, and very protective of Nalene. Natcha is a creature of fire with the ability to cloak herself, which bewilders others. She risks everything to help one even though it will put many in danger and her in hiding. Find out what happens to Natcha and Nalene! Overall thoughts on the series so far: These stories have the perfect pace, and with world building that feels like a living breathing character in and of itself it makes for very enjoyable reading. I can’t wait for the last two installments, Shadow Ice, book 4 and Shadow King, book 5.  I’m super mega excited that Mrs. Zoeller has put these stories into combined editions for paperback format. My keeper shelf has been waiting for The Darkling Chronicles, Shadows 1 (which includes the first three short stories) Eeeeeeeeps!! I encourage any fan-lover of YA/NA Fantasy to read these stories and get lost in Tricia Zoeller’s Darkling Chronicles and the World of Montenai.
