I absolutely love the Thieves/Hunters world, and these are some of my very favorite urban fantasy books. Unfortunately I made the mistake of starting this book late at night, so I was up until 2am finishing it. Now my brain is too tired to write a coherent review!

Lexi did a good job at giving us a recap of who are characters are, and what happened in the previous book. I love when authors do that, as my memory isn't what it used to be, and I don't always have time to go back and do a series re-read before each new book c
This book started out in a way I wasn't sure of but then supercharged its way to 5 stars.

In the beginning the babies and sperm, the she-wolf having a biological clock ticking rigmarole didn't appeal. I want my women, the Nex Aparatus in this case, to be really badass. I don't want baby talk, sorry not sorry. Get out and nail those bad guys/supernatural beings arses to the wall. Have your trusted team around you, let us like them and connect to them. I truly needed more character connection in the Hunte

Love love loved it!!!

Lexi is the master at twists aNd turns and the 'Thieves' universe is no different. I was on the edge of me seat the whole read. I LOVE Trent, and I seriously hope in years to come we get Little Lee's story. So much there.
I cannot wait for the next book !!!

I was given a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

This might be Lexi Blake’s best writing yet. Kelsey has come into her own as a hunter and she kicks ass in her role as the king’s assassin. I love the way the simpler story of Kelsey’s hunt for a feral werewolf intertwines with the more complicated storylines that weave through the series.

I have to admit that I didn’t fully engage with the first part of this book. Kelsey’s attempts to keep both Trent and Grayson happy almost h

Outcast is the 4th installment in the Hunter series and most definitely cannot be read as a standalone, as all threads tie together. As for it being the 9th installment in the Thieves series, I can attest to how reading the Thieves series prior to the Hunter series is not a prerequisite. No doubt the emotional payoff is better, but I was never confused due to not reading it first. However, I will eventually go back and read the

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

Kelsey has never had it easy. Growing up as the child her father didn't like, she learned early to stay out of his way. Never knowing the reasons why, Kelsey not only wanted her father's approval, but his love as well. Trying to prove that she was worthy of his love, she found herself in a situation she didn't anticipate, couldn't control and left her devastated when she learned who and what her father truly was: a murderer

I was given this book for an honest review by Wicked Reads.

Whew! This book is a whirlwind of emotion, turmoil, sadness and love. If you haven't read the previous books, you might find yourself a little confused, but they aren't necessarily needed. However, I would strongly suggest reading them in order, as they will make the most sense.

Kelsey has joined the ranks of my favorite fantasy leading ladies now! She is part wolf and has a demon arm, can't get much cooler than that. She is in charge a lot of the time, but she also knows when to step back and ask for help. She is a bit stubborn, but she allows others to help her when she needs it. Kelsey was such an all-around likable character! But don't think that she is weak, because she isn't. When her demon or wolf side comes out to play, nothing will get in between her and what s ...more

Oh My Gosh I cant Wait for the next Theives!!

Loved, loved this book, well I love all the Theives books. Lexi has not disappointed me this time either. I’ll only say loved the ending ... every. damn. Word of it. If I could have taken a day off of work I would have so I could have read straight through. Every time I read a Thieves story I feel like these characters are just as real as any human being story. Kelsey is as dear to my heart as Zoey is and every man, creature, demon, wolf and vampire i
Kelsey's love life has never been more complicated, Gray still can't forgive Trent for his brother's death while Trent has been exiled as punishment for what happened making him a target for anyone who wants to hurt her. She's doing her best to hold things together but she needs both of the men in her life and is desperate to find a way to bring Trent home and make peace between him and Gray. Gray's father Lord Sloane has offered her a way to make that happen but when demons are involved the onl ...more

4 stars. This book is a great addition to the Hunter series. Outcast contines Kelsey's story and her menage relationship with Trent, a werewolf, and Gray, a half-demon. I can't go too much into the story without spoiling anything, but I will say that in this book, Kelsey continues to struggle to get her relationship on track and happy, while juggling her duties as the Nex Apparatus.

I love Kelsey, Trent and Gray together. They have all been through so much and they deserve to be happy. I do wish

This is the first book that I have read in this series and while, there is some backstory missing, it did not stop me at all from diving right in and falling for this book. I am now on a mission to go back and read the rest of the series. I absolutely loved the depth of these characters and the struggles that they face just to get through life. Add in the outside forces that are determined to force these three to make hard decisions.

How long will I have to wait?!

Ok!! so it was excellent as is expected the content the story the suspense the action. All great as we have come to know and expect from LB. I didn't think they would fall in o thought she'd fall out. SOlo i can't review this books without giving stuff away I just can't and I don't want to be like that.
The only thing I would be inclined to take a star off for was the fact that Ms. Blake did not include when Stealing Summer would be coming out!!!! I don't know if

Outcast is book #4 in the Hunter Series. Lexi Blake you made me tearing up with your acknowledgements. I am so sorry that you lost your mom. I am glad you found your happy place with writing this series and book.

Kelsey, Gray & Trent start therapy. Trent has been exiled as punishment for killing Gray’s demon brother Nemcox. Gray is having a hard time with Trent since his brother was killed.

Everyone is back this time and I am one happy reader. This book gives us more of an insight into Trent's past and his family. Lord Sloane is back causing futher hate and discontent. Kelsey is once again divided, trying to save Gray, protect Lee and due her thing. Love Kelsey. She is kick ass but she sometimes lets others bring out those doubts from book 1 that make you want to shake her and remind her that she killed a demon and an angel, she is super special and no one should make her feel less ...more

Trent has been outcast, forced to live outside of the council and away from his mate after killing Lord Sloan’s demon son in defense of Kelsey. Grayson is having mood swings and acting unlike himself. The trio is sent to find a werewolf killer who is leaving a path of destruction. Mayhem ensues and alliances are questioned. Kelsey continues to be a badass heroine but this installment of the series shows her nurturing side. New characters are embraced and readers will delight in reuniting with ol ...more
All of my life I’d thought of myself as a freak, but it is okay to be a freak. It’s okay to be weird and to not fit in. It’s all right to be the oddball.

We were all outcasts at one time or another ...

I’d learned even outcasts can make a family if we care about each other enough.

After a slow first half, the remainder of the book was a page-turner. I'm looking forward to "Kelsey, Zoey, and Summer –and the whole Thieves crew –[returning] in Stealing Summer."

Soooooo good!!!!

As much as I hate waiting, I love that Lexi doesn't rush the storylines in her books. The build up is perfectly timed and balanced. I have read and re-read all of her books and the Thieves and Hunter series are my favorites......even when we poor readers are left dangling from a cliff.😈. I can't find the words to explain just how highly I recommend Lexi Blake's books!

Ok so this is the thieves series and I absolutely love it. I feel like I’ve been waiting forever for it but definitely worth it. I was left devastated in the last book not knowing what would happen to trey. I felt so bad for kelsey her heart was torn. I wanted to slap some sense into grey! I kept yelling at the book like no!! It’s a trap but knowing she had to. It has a great storyline, lots of action. Some twists and turns. Overall a great read.

I put off reading this book as I knew once I started I would be lost for a couple of days. You do need to have read the previous books as without you would be confused and not get the dynamics. Love Lee and fen and really want an Eddie in my life. Great book hope the next isn't too long and looking forward to the fairy spin offs

Lots of things resolved in this book, but also a lot of things still left to come back to. Summer is definitely coming and along with more danger, mystery and action! The wait for the next book is going to suck but will be so worth it.

Suspense right up to the end of the book, can't wait to read the next book in the series. Way to keep the reader guessing, just when you think one problem is solved something else develops that you don't see coming.

I loved this book as I have the entire series. It ends on a cliffhanger so I'm anxious for the next installment. Lexi Blake is a fantastic writer who blends romance and suspense very well. I read this book in two days it was so good.
