*Note: this is the second book in a series that should be read in order. If you are new to this series,  check out my review on the first novel- The Last Magician HERE The Devil’s Thief is the second novel in the Last Magician series by Lisa Maxwell. I loved the first book in this series so much. I thought the Last Magician was utterly fantastic! And I have to say that the sequel, The Devil’s Thief completely lived up to my expectations after the first. I might have even liked more than the first book!

There are so many different layers and unknowns that come to light throughout the story, and I loved watching everything unfold bit by bit for the main character, Lucy. The cast of characters were as rich and complex as was the scenery and landscape of New Orleans. I loved Mama Legba, Chloe, Piers and Alex. Lucy’s family kind of faded into the background for me, but I didn’t dislike them. They just weren’t really the focus of this story. The focus came through Lucy’s dreams and her trying to piece together the puzzle they presented. Past and Present swirl… Read more »
