    4.75 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 is of 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 a...

    A Joyfully Jay review 2.25 starsThe Acrobat was challenging to review It tends to rely to heavily on tired clich s and characters that never fully develop It starts off well and we re introduced to Liam as he struggles to teach his hapless friend Mal the art of pick pocketing Predictably, it doesn t go 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 t...

    sempre uno spasso leggere i libri di Agnes Non perch siano leggeri o semplicemente umoristici ma perch bravissima nel creare personaggi e situazioni che ti lasciano con il sorriso sulle labbra, nonostante i temi trattati siano a volte molto seri 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 entra...

    Altro giro, altra storia vincente L autrice cambia specie paranormale, ma fa centro un altra volta e lasciati momentaneamente a riposo i Lupi di Stockton Town, ci porta nel mondo abile e funambolico del ladro Liam, conosciuto come l Acrobata.L Acrobata non sbaglia mai un colpo, freddo e distaccato, soprattutto nel suo lavoro , ma anche sfrontato e linguacciuto, ed cos che lo conosce Vincent che viene travolto, lui vampiro ultracentenario, da quella piccola furia Ma Vincent piano piano riesce a ol...

    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

    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, requiring from 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 bit than 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, whic...

    A Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words Review An Alisa Review Rating 4 stars out of 5This is a wonderful story The Acrobat has been taking care of himself and a friend for years but when Vincent wants to keep him he doesn t know if he should stay because of how he feels or run Vincent has been looking for his soul mate for a long time and is amazed when the foul mouthed little thief throws his carefully balanced world off kilter.Liam and Vincent can t deny their attraction for each other but continue to keep secrets that hurt their relationship Vincent isn t sure that he can ever forgive Liam for his betrayal but he can t stop caring for him.This book was originally written in Italian but translated by Kevin Houser and he did a great job The book flowed well without the choppy feeling or odd words that I have often seen in other translations This story was ...

    Leggi tutta la recensione su un giovane dall aspetto bellissimo o almeno cos immaginiamo dai dettagli seminati qua e l dall autrice che per vivere fa il ladro Dal borseggio al furto pi corposo, Liam cerca di sopravvivere in un mondo che sembra averlo dimenticato Al suo fianco incontriamo Mal, un giovane ripudiato dalla sua famiglia perch omosessuale, che cerca di imparare i trucchi del mestiere dal maestro Liam l acrobata.Fin dall inizio del libro impariamo a capire il carattere di Liam e Mal, il primo spavaldo e sicuro di se ha fatto del crimine un vero mestiere ed sicuro al punto di sentirsi un maestro, Mal invece un ragazzino impaurito che si affidato alle cure del suo amico nella speranza di crearsi un nome e sopravvivere in un ambiente ostile e pericoloso.Ben presto per i due ragazzi finiscono nei guai e da un semplice furto si ritrovano catapultati in un mondo nuovo, fatto di creature degne di un film di Dracula.Liam incontra cos Vincent e tra loro si crea subito...
