The follow up to Robin in the Hood was great! It was darker, more mature and upped the magic floating around tenfold. It literally picks up where RitH left off: Creek and Robin are on a plane headed for Venice, Italy. The goal is to find Robin's mom, long believed to be dead, and connect with her. Bringing her back to Bender Lake would be the best case scenario, but Robin and Creek are expecting the unexpected.
Some very interesting developments occur this time around and this story goes

Stone of Thieves is book two in the Robbin’ Hearts Series by Diane J. Reed. I loved both books one and two in this series. But book two has a completely different feel to it. Book one was YA, with a lighter, humorous feel. Book two, though, is much darker, more mystical. And most definitely graduated from YA to NA.

We start right out where Robin in the Hood left off. Robin and Creek are on their way to Italy. They are in love. But there is so much mystery and pain attached to Robin’s past. Cre

I have to say, first book, Robin in the Hood, left a strong impression on me, and I couldn't wait to read the sequel. And when it finally arived in my hands, i couldn't read it due to University obligations. But, since i finally had time to read, I picked this jewel up and started to read.

Stone of Thieves continues the tale of the fun couple Robin and Creek! While I enjoyed book 1, which does not necessarily need to be read, I found this book to hold much more pleasure for me! The excitement level was upped as was the mystique and overall romanctic feel. While the first book was rooted in the YA genre, I felt a bit of an NA turn in this progression

As a whole, I found myself intriqued with the setting and the overall feel to the plot. T

It's sequel time, baby! All jokes aside, sometimes sequels are not as great as the first. And in this case I would have to say that statement is true. I was really diggin' the first book, Robin in the Hood, but this one left something to be desired. I don't know, it just felt too...Disney fairytale. It's like everything had some perfect solution and the characters were either one extreme or another. They were either super wicked or super good - n

I've been eagerly awaiting this sequel since the first Robbin' Hearts novel came out, and Diane J. Reed does not disappoint! From the first page, this book dives into the exciting adventure awaiting Robin and Creek in Venice and it *does not let up.* Danger, mayhem, and the questionable underbelly of the city of secrets will keep you reading, because there is just no good place to stop before the last page.

This book is the second in a series, and while you don't need to have read the first to pi

This series is the biggest surprise of the year for me. Sure, when I signed up for the blog tour I expected it to be entertaining, but this was amazing, a true adventure full of humor, emotions, action and secrets.

In the first book Robin, or Rubina since that is her real name, found out her entire life was a lie. When her father ended up in the hospital, she found out that they are in massive debt so she breaks him out and goes to the one

3 Magical Stars

Stone of Thieves proved to be an eye-opening read. My preferred genres to read usually do not include fantasy books but this one really helped give me a push towards wanting to experience more. The magic and adventure wrapped around Robin and Creek’s romance provided a fast-paced energy flowing from the pages. Written really well, this new adult romance grabs your attention from the beginning.

Much like in Robin in the Hood, this book is action packed. From the first page until the last there is always something going on. On their way to Italy, Robin and Creek are on a mission to rescue Robin’s mother and find the truth about the ruby heart stone. But things are never easy and Robin and Creek are in more danger than ever. The gypsies who hold information they need are mysterious and their way of life confusing to the young Americans. But together they can overcome it all and save Robi ...more

Stone of Thieves is second book in Robbin's Heart series and it is standalone. But you should read the first one also to know how Robin's journey started.

But she never dreamed she'd fall in love..."

You will wonder how she became a Bandit or Gypsy Queen and her journey in falling in love.

After an amazing start with Robin in the Hood I knew there was no way I could miss Diane J. Reed’s second book in this series, Stone of Thieves, but could she deliver with the same fresh style? Not a problem! Robin has grown from a stereo-typical little rich girl to a young lady who has learned how to truly love and be loved by those around her. Instead of taking, she gives, and she believes in the unbelievable and how she may be the key to the impossible.

Abridged from my blog, Reading the Alphabet

After finishing Robin in the Hood, I could not wait to begin on Stone of Thieves.

Whereas with Robin in the Hood I thought that the audience could be upper YA given the ages of the characters and the relatively light crushing on a boy, with non-graphic scenes of kisses and not-over-the-top violence that bordered on funny, Stone of Thieves kicks things up a notch in multiple facets early on. This sets it squarely in the New Adult range, albeit in a tastef

Stone of Thieves was a definite refresher from all the other books I had been reading lately. It had danger, it had excitement, it had intrigue, and it also had some romance thrown in the midst.

This series just keeps getting better!! I loved book 2, maybe a bit more than book 1 (but I can't tell you for sure) and that is only because we get to see more of Robin and Creek and the ways in which they are able to expand their love and relationship. My favorite characters are still Robin, Granny Tinker and Creek, but I have added two more favorites after reading this book and they are Zuhna and Alessia de Ba
Stone Of Thieves has taken on a whole new feel and a change up with some of the plot from the first book. The first one, Robin in the Hood, was a fun, lighthearted YA story. Stone Of Thieves has taken on somewhat of a darker theme. Robin and Creek are now 18 and things have gotten hotter between them. This story went from YA to NA very quickly. I couldn't put it down. You will not be disappointed, this is a must read!

Stone of Thieves was a wondrously mystical read! I loved book one of the series, Robin in the Hood, and couldn't wait for this book to be released. Diane Reed has created a series full of magic, mystery, and romance, written in a way that only she is able. The story and characters are flawless. This book has taken on a more serious tone than the first, so I would say that it has moved on from YA to NA.

I am a type of reader who usually go for a horror, paranormal or mystery genre but when I get the chance to grab a hold of the book and try it for myself, this pushes me to give this kind of genre a chance. First off, I love the way on how the book was written because it seems like you are reading from someone's diary. The emotions on every character is delivered very well.

Stone of Thieves is the amazing New Adult sequel to the quirky YA novel Robin in the Hood. Just like the characters have matured, so has the story. It's gritty and dark and even more mesmerizing.
