Chosen Thief by Scarlett Dawn

Caroline Jules knows death is imminent. She's only 22, but as an inmate of death row in the most secure Mystical jail, what else could her future hold? Caro has no idea. Her solitary, transient life is about to get flipped on its head when it is revealed that she is the new Elemental Prodigie, and she has responsibilities and ties that she can't ever escape. Caro is attempting to run from a brutal past, but the rulers have other plans for this thief's future. But the transition from a self contained existence to life with the other prodigies, the Kings and Queens, and even the Elders was never going to be easy, and Caro has secrets she's loathe to share. Suddenly she has friends, mentors, lovers-and they all want to know more about her than she is willing to reveal. Can she learn to thrive in the role of a future leader, or will the obligations scare her into disappearing again-this time forever?

This series just keeps on getting better and better. Chosen Thief welcomes a new group of characters into the spotlight, all the while keeping us up to date with past characters who we will never get enough of. The new prodigies are very different to the now Kings and Queens, we have a terrified Mage, a snob of a Shifter, a Vampire with questionable clothing choices and an Elemental with a vast criminal record who are next in line for the thrones. I just love this series so frickin much I don't know where to start! Sin's and Caro's relationship just made me wish for something like they have and the fact that Caro is bi just made my day, finally getting some recognition of other sexualities besides straight and gay in the Urban Fantasy genres, yayayay!!! But stepping away from the characters because I could go on about how fantastic they are all day. The humour in this series never fails to make me cry and grasp my stomach in pain, through awkward sex talks and bad-mouthing of very important people on live radio, I just needed a break from the constant laughter! The world-building continues to grow along with the characters, and this definitely has to be one of my favourite series out there today. It just has everything I could want in a fantasy series: amazing five dimensional characters who are all fantastic in their own unique ways, an original world where anything can happen, humour that will make you pee yourself and a plot that will never leave you bored.

Rating: 5/5
