The Light Thieves

The Light Thieves is an exciting new series that follows Grian and his friends as they work together to search for Grian's missing sister, Solas, who has run off to a wonderful, high-tech new city developed by billionaire Howard Hansom. However, along with Grian, we soon begin to see that not everything is as it seems.

The story is thrilling from the beginning and remains complex and exciting throughout. The characters feel real, and though Grian is the main protagonist, it was refreshing to see him rely on the skills of his friends, Jeffery and Shelli, to help him along the way. Furthermore, the family dynamics feel realistic, with Grian doing everything in his power to find his sister despite their many differences. 

Of course, technology is truly at the heart of The Light Thieves, and this focus on cutting edge technology versus personal privacy is truly fascinating. And while it is a futuristic and imagined world, the book still acts as a warning to younger readers of the dangers of sharing personal information and an over-reliance on technology. 

Overall, this is a wonderfully written and imaginative story filled with lovable characters and a cliff-hanger that is sure to have you begging for the next book. It's the perfect story for those seeking adventure with an interest in science, technology, and the environment!
