Full Review on my blog!

Loved this!

The cover is what initially grabbed my attention, and synopsis made me laugh a little so I was sold!

Heist by Kezzy Sparks is a fun unique read about, the magical theft of a body part which is is something I hadn't experienced before, and I thought it intriguing and interesting.

We meet Melanie Perkiss, a witch hunter and paranormal investigator. She is after a witch who put a spell on Casey  just days before his wedding. I don't want to spoil too much, but there

Ha, ha, ha! Really! This book has so much action and so many funny moments, situations that will leave you breathless and moments that will make you question the sanity of those characters (in a good way). “Heist” is the type of story that really manages to pull you out of your day-to-day life. So how can I dislike it?

Mel has a hard time finding a sorceress that is…creating major issues to a couple about to get married. She took the man’s most precious possession and I am not referring here to h

This book was written in the area where I live so to hear the names of towns and roads was fun.Melanie is a witch hunter in Buffalo, NY. She is after a witch who put a spell on Casey days before he is to be married. Casey's ex hired the witch and had something taken from him that would hurt his marriage. Then she steals it from the witch and it keeps getting stolen from others. Casey hires Melanie to get the item back and Melanie wants to bring the witch to justice. Sometimes I would shake my he ...more

A humorous epic with lots of twists and turns. The ending is what blew me away the most; honestly, I could never have dreamed of it, not even in a million years.
Only the prose needs a little tightening, and this could easily have been a five-star read for me.

What drew me to this book was the cover dark, trendy and edgy. I think it sums up this page turning read. With lots of twists and turns Heist graps attention from the beginning. I personally enjoy supernatural novels so this was right up my street. I loved the main character and enjoyed the snappy dialogue. I recommend this book from anyone who enjoys the fantasy genre.

It was good.

A magic tale of missing body parts, and the hunt to find them before the wedding. Ever had a spell cast on you? This is one I hope you never receive. ;-)

Casey wakes up one morning before his wedding to find "something" missing, but, he doesn't call the police. Instead he calls a rare hunter to find what was taken from him.

I do love a good witch/magic story, but I found this book lacking for me. The flow of the story was choppy. I did find it intriguing and wanted to read

I didn't buy this book but received an advance copy to read and review. I liked the story. The basis of the plot--magical theft of a body part--is something I hadn't experienced before, and I thought it intriguing and interesting.
Characters were believable and well-developed even if I felt some aspects of the story were hard to understand because the action is a little unusual.

Altogether, a refreshing provocative read, though.

Don't waste your time. Although an interesting concept, English is obviously not the author's first language and I'm uncertain the editor is out of high school. This could have been a really good story. Unfortunately the writing will drive you crazy before you can get to the end. ...more

I received a copy for an honest review. What follows is my opinion and mine alone. I was not compensated for this review.

Heist is the debut urban fantasy by Kezzy Sparks. What got me wanting to read the book was definitely the blurb. There is something about a man losing his bits that gets a girl interested. Especially under such a time constraint.

For me, starting the book was rather difficult. The third person narrative felt very noir-ish, which wasn't so much of a problem, but then continuing

I was kindly given a copy of this book by the author. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Let me first thank the author for sending me a copy of the book. When I was sent the synopsis it grabbed me and if I’m honest it made me laugh a little so I was sold.
This is not my typical type of book that I would pick up but I wanted to give it a go anyway. The story was entertaining, and honestly how many of us wishes something similar could happen to one of our exes. Unfortunately for me, I did not lik
