stars The Acrobat is a very engaging and entertaining story about an ancient vampire and a cat burglar, complete with sassy banter, boiling passion, awesome character development and a plot which snagged my interest from the very first page I am so happy that I chanced upon this book and this author This series is going to be awesome and I can t wait for the next book.Liam aka The Acrobat is a survivor and he will do what he knows best to save his friend, Mal even if it means stealing from the mysterious, uber rich Vincent de Saint Bonnet But what he could not have predicted before was to get caught red handed by the very same Saint Bonnet Vincent is a man of secrets and Liam finds himself face to face with all of them along with an emotion he has never experienced before As much as he wants to give in to his desires, Liam has a dagger to steal and a friend to save, which means betraying the same person he wants to love Will The Acrobat be able to finish the job or will Liam choose Love Read and find out The story starts with Liam s life as a pickpocket and how he survives using his wits and talents on the streets He does not have any qualms in being a thief, he is proud of what he does coz he is the best after all Liam has only one friend, who isof a brother to him and Liam will do anything to protect him He is loyal, fierce and a pure soul I loved how the author details the circumstances and emotions of Liam and Mal as they try to make a living by doing what they know best Their plight was heart wrenching and I desperately cheered Liam on from the very start Vincent on the other hand is a brooding, mysterious character who has a lot of secrets and a lot of suspicions about Liam as he battles between loving him and distrusting him Their relationship is fraught with distrust and anger while they are overcome with an overwhelming passion like no other Even through the distrust and suspicions, Vincent and Liam s love is solid and pure Their true feelings were always on display and it was a great treat to see those two falling in love while being angry and not honest with each other It was a different kind of romance for sure but one enjoyed with relish.The supernatural part is induced in perfect amounts in the story as Liam gradually comes to know what Vincent truly is Vincent s world is revealed in bits and pieces and I loved how everything comes together at the end There were no loose strings in the story I wanted the bad guys to get caught but I guess it will make a great premise for the next book along with a perfect chance to see Vincent and Liamas the series goes on.This is a translation and it has been done so beautifully that if you don t know it beforehand, you can never tell Kudos to the author as well as the translator for a giving us a story which was not only an engaging and incredible read but also the start of a series I will surely look forward to This review has been cross posted at GayBookReviews Liam un ladro

particolare Il ragazzo, nonostante capisca fin da subito che il colpo in questione molto pi complesso degli altri, costretto ad accettare a causa delle pessime condizioni di salute del suo migliore amico che ha bisogno di cure sempre pi costose.Vincent un vampiro che ha perso quasi del tutto la voglia di vivere quando scopre che un ladruncolo si intrufolato in casa sua decide di vedere fino a che punto il ragazzo sia in grado di spingersi rimane assolutamente sorpreso nel vedere il ladro riuscire ad entrare all interno della sua pi che protetta casa e osservandolo capisce che non si tratta di un ladro comune.Vincent capisce che il ragazzo sta cercando un oggetto per lui molto prezioso e decide di catturarlo per cercare di scoprire il mandante del furto.Liam e Vincent sono due personaggi molto particolari Liam nella sua giovane vita ha dovuto affrontare tantissime difficolt , ma nonostante questo non si mai dato per vinto Vincent ha perso il suo grande a e con lui la voglia di vivere, ma quando incontra il nostro giovane acrobata viene travolto dalla sua personalit , capisce subito che Liam non un umano come tutti gli altri e che tra loro c un legame speciale.Come in tutti i libri di Agnes Moon i personaggi sono molto ben delineati e la trama non mai scontata Il libro scritto in prima persona e alterna i punti di vista dei due protagonisti, rendendo la narrazione fluida e scorrevole, mai pesante n noiosa Anche questa volta non manca il lato ironico che una delle caratteristiche distintive di questa bravissima autrice I riferimenti di Liam a Twilight, che fanno rabbrividire e arrabbiare Vincent, mi hanno fatto morire dal ridere.I personaggi secondari sono molto interessanti e lasciano aperte varie strade per i successivi volumi di questa serie, che sono molto ansiosa di leggere Tra questi personaggi il mio preferito sicuramente Philip, per il momento non si visto molto di questo giovane vampiro, ma quel poco che stato detto mi ha decisamente incuriosita.In conclusione posso dire che Agnes Moon sicuramente la mia autrice italiana preferita e che anche questa volta non ha assolutamente deluso le mie aspettative A mio parere questa nuova serie ancora pi bella di quella dei Lupi di Stockton Town e L acrobata sicuramente il migliore tra i libri che ha scritto fino a questo momento Recensione pubblicata su Romanticamente Fantasy Sito A

well and Liam ends up working for a less than reputable boss His actions are noble He thieves to protect Mal and his devotion to his friend is admirable We know he had a rough childhood, but Liam never feels like a complete character We re just given bits and pieces of him and expected to fill in the rest We aren t even told how he gets his nickname, The Acrobat We have to assume it s because of his skill at thievery, but it s one of many holes in a very uneven, well trod plot.Vincent reads like a caricature of any old vampire ever written There isn t much originality to him and it s never clear why he and Liam care about one another A small part of these problems may stem from the fact this is a translation, but the bigger issues come from poor character development and a plot that never evolves beyond a very simplistic format.One of my biggest issues with The Acrobat is that is filled to the brim with child abuse and dubious consent The child abuse is told as a part of Liam s past, which is understandable But literally everyone in his life or that he meets seems to be obsessed with sexually abusing young children It s awkward and uncomfortable, yet never treated with the depth it deserves From the start, Liam is Vincent s prisoner and their relationship is imbalanced Liam is quite capable of verbally defending himself, but their sexual encounters are borderline rape Liam does not say no, but nor did I feel he was ever in a place to do so I won t call it sexual assault outright, but nor was it as consensual as it should have been I realize that dubious consent is a sub genre that some readers enjoy, but I m not one of them.Read Sue s review in its entirety here sempre uno spasso leggere i libri di Agnes Non perch siano leggeri o semplicemente umoristici ma

Avevo amato moltissimo la sua serie su I Lupi di Stockton Town ma ho trovato questo romanzo ancora pi emozionanate ed appassionante Liam un ragazzo che conquista non appena entra in scena ha avuto una vita difficile ma non si mai arreso e non ha perso il suo spirito ribelle e la voglia di andare avanti Vincent un uomo misterioso che impariamo a conoscere a poco a poco, ma che possiede un fascino magnetico e oscuro che cattura non solo il povero ladruncolo ma anche il lettore.Leggendo la storia scopriamo poi che hanno in comune molto pi di quanto entrambi si aspetterebbero e, anche se la loro relazione vive momenti intensi, non mancano le difficolt e le battute d arresto.Mi sono divorata questo romanzo senza riuscire a staccarmi un attimo e spero solo che esca prestissimo il prossimo della serie e io mi sono gi fatta un idea su chi potrebbero essere i protagonisti.P.S adoro la copertina P.P.S Giusto un assaggio di Liam Mi guard e nel suo sguardo lessi, esattamente, tutto quello che avrebbe voluto da me Accidenti Se gli occhi avessero potuto scopare mi sarei dovuto fumare una sigaretta Altro giro, altra storia vincente L autrice cambia specie paranormale, ma fa centro un altra

ne ha passate tante e che fa di tutto per proteggere le persone che ama A questo proposito ricordo ad Agnes Moon che io sono quella che rompe con le coppie future, e qualcosa mi dice che piccolo e sfortunato amico di Acrobata e grosso vampiro scimmione, ma da tenero cuore, faranno bela belissima coppia, daaa Bello da 4 stelline e mezzo A differenza di altre autrici italiane lei ha una idea e riesce a trasformarla in una storia, storia che ti tiene incollata al kindle fino alla fine voglio presto il seguito ovviamente Very disappointed by this one Way too predictable and corny.

This was a really cute enjoyable vampire story Liam has been on the streets from a young age He has taken a young man, Mal, under his wings and supports them both by thieving, pick pocketing, etc Unfortunately, circumstances led them to be under the control Curt, a sort of pimp, though Liam manages to keep sex out of the equation thus far In exchange for a place to live, Liam must bring in enough cash for the both of them Mal has been sick as well, requiringfrom Liam to cover the cost This was a really cute enjoyable vampire story Liam has been on the streets from a young age He has taken a young man, Mal, under his wings and supports them both by thieving, pick pocketing, etc Unfortunately, circumstances led them to be under the control Curt, a sort of pimp, though Liam manages to keep sex out of the equation thus far In exchange for a place to live, Liam must bring in enough cash for the both of them Mal has been sick as well, requiringfrom Liam to cover the costs.Liam agrees to take on one final job for Curt before he and Mal leave on their own Unfortunately, he bites off a bitthan he can chew when he manages to break into the home of Vincent de Saint Bonnet, a man with a very dark reputation.I was pulled into this story right away Liam, aka the Acrobat, is easy to like with his sassy mouth and quick wit Likewise, Vincent is interesting and charming and a bit taken with his little thief Unfortunately, there are a few things getting in the way, even though Vince believes Liam might be his coer du sang, or soul mate Liam was after a special dagger, which happened to be one of the only weapons that can kill Vincent All Liam knows is that he must retrieve it in order to save Mal and for them to be able to leave Curt So, there is a bit of miscommunication along the way as well.But, in the meantime, we have some great chemistry and banter as they each get to know one another and get to the bottom of things at the same time It takes a while for the trust to happen, but it shines through in the end I really enjoyed this story and read it in one sitting I never would have guessed this was translated from another language and thought the translation was very well done This is a new to me author, but I am definitely looking forward to reading , especially book 2 of this new series Review written for Love Bytes Reviews
