I really liked this book from cover to cover. It was full of action from the first couple of pages to the end.

I think Yves is perfect for me. I tend to go for the more shy, brainy guys, and it sure didn't hurt that this one was devastatingly handsome and such a gentleman. He's romantic but not to the point where he's too sappy, and he's protective but not to the point where he's possessive.

I love Phoenix because she's your perfect damsel in distress. She's had a hard life, but she's a survivor.

I'm such a sucker for this series. I read the whole book in just under 12 hours. All 264 pages in 12 hours - with breaks in between! This may not seem like such a surprise to other, faster readers but to me it was pretty shocking. I usually pace myself and read around 100 to 150 pages a day, but this book? I could not stop reading until I was done. Which was by 3 am in the morning.

I don't remember the first book, Finding Sky, all too well but I do remember loving it. But when I got this book, I

Recommends it for: People who enjoy supernatural romance, but don't take the relationships too serious
Let me start this review by saying that I liked this book. No, it is not a literary masterpiece, but it doesn't pretend to be one either. What it is: a nice, fluffy, well-paced, just-exciting-enough YA novel, that you read through in a heartbeat. It combines romance, friendship and some action and suspense in a nice way (although I do have to add here that some of the scenes showing the family-affection felt slightly artificial to me), and although it never keeps you on the edge of your seat or ...more

Ωχ.. Πως έγινε τώρα αυτό!?!?!?!

Το Κλέβοντας την Φοίνιξ μπορώ να πω ότι ήταν πολύ καλύτερο....
Οι κεντρικοί χαρακτήρες ήταν πιο καλά δουλεμένοι, υπήρχε ένα πλάνο, μια οργάνωση στο μυαλό της Joss και αυτό φαινόντουσαν και στις σελίδες.
Δεν ξέρω πως έγινε αυτό .... αλλά μπράβο της... με έκανε να θέλω να διαβάσω και το 3ο βιβλίο της σειράς !!!!

¿Quién iba a decir que el más bueno y tierno de los Benedict iba a tener una historia tan poco edulcorada? (Mil veces menos edulcorada que la de Zed, su hermanito el chico malo).
Me encantó eso.
De la misma forma que me encantó conocer mejor a Yves y conocer a Phoenix, tengo algunos peros hacia ella, pero es un personaje roto y ese es el tipo que más me gusta.
En fin, reitero eso de que quisiera ser adoptada por los Benedict, pero ya.

I cannot express how much I love this series. It's been torture waiting for the release of Stealing Phoenix. I did the craziest happy dance when I saw it in my mailbox.

This book was incredibly well written. The storyline was thrilling, exciting and I got absorbed into in from page one. The pages were constantly giving of waves of danger. I was so anxious the entire time, waiting for the axe to drop. Yves sure knows how to get in trouble, with Phoenix’s help of course.

Yves and Phoenix are so ado

This is a Bookcase to Heaven™ review.


Sometimes you immerse yourself in a drama, so much that it's all you can think about when you eat and when you sleep. And all that time spent outside the tale has you aching to get back into the exhilarating experience of hanging onto every word from the endearing cast. Then, as you zoom through the episodes, eagerly waiting to see how it ends, you realize with a start that time flies and there's only one more episode left.

My rating 4.5 out of 5

Stealing Phoenix is the second book in the Finding Sky series by Joss Stirling, it's definitely one of the best YA series out there (in my humble opinion), it's fast paced, full of swoon worthy Benedict brothers and has the best creepy villains EVER. The Benedicts are a pretty special family, the parents and the seven brothers who's names start alphabetically with Trace and ends with Zed are savants and all have special pow

Llevaba años con este libro en pendiente y si no tenía la insistencia de Juli para leerlo, debo admitir que no lo iba a tocar.

Recordé porque no me gustó Sky, creo que tenía problemas con sus personajes principales.

Aunque en Phoenix no lo sufrí tanto y en algún momento me interesó la historia, siento que su prota hacia todo lo posible para despertar mi malhumor, entiendo todas las cosas malas por las que pasó, pero en algunos momentos se merecía unos buenos golpes para que dejara de actuar ta

I loved just the same as the first book. Another Benedict brother has found his soulfinder, or soulmate. This is the story of Yves and Phoenix. This book is great. I enjoyed every minute of it.

Phoenix is a thief. She can freeze brainwaves from others, which is totally awesome if you ask me. She tries to steal from Yves, but is unable to succeed. She makes some bad decisions throughout the book that annoyed me. However, I thought it didn't take away from the story.

Weer een boek van mijn 2018-priority lijst afgevinkt!
Dit keer een boek waar ik stiekem al erg lang naar uit keek. Deel 1 heb ik gelezen in 2016 en daar heb ik onwijs van genoten! Deel 2 was ik dan ook erg benieuwd naar, maarja er staan zoveel boeken op mijn to read..

Deel 2 ging tot mijn grote verbazing anders dan deel 1. Deel 1 volgt Sky en Zed en deze 2 leuke personages waren in deel 2 niet meer de hoofdpersonages. Dit keer volgen we Phoenix en de oudere broer van Zed: Yves. Hier moest ik dan o

Mir gefällt die deutsche Aufmachung von den Farben her etwas besser. Zu meiner Verwunderung finde ich auch die Abänderung des Titels richtig gut, obwohl beides passt, denn Phoenix wird so gesehen „gestohlen“ aber auch „gerettet“. Ich finde jedoch letztes passt irgendwie besser, wegen der Beziehung zu Yves!


Ich erinnere mich noch gut an den Vorgänger Finding Sky und das ich damals nicht ganz überzeugt werden konnte. Von Saving Phoenix gab es aber so viele positive Eindrücke, d

Хареса ми много повече от "Скай". Феникс и Айвс бяха толкова различни и в същото време така добре си пасваха. Книгата беше наситена с повече битки били те физически или със саватски сили.
