Young Llama Thoughts
Ok, I LOVED THIS BOOK!!! If you get past the weird title, this book is just soooooo good! There is adventure, action, mystery, romance and art thieves all in one amazing book! (I seriously loved this book!)
This book is about a young women who works at the Smithsonian, a thief who wants out of the business, and his brother who wants all of the business. When the largest blue diamond is going to be celebrated at the Smithsonian at a large party perfect for the thieving brothers to break in, it will be up to 1 young lady to save the precious gem she dislikes so much… If she doesn’t fall in love during the job.
This book was amazing! With a very tragic backstory explaining the diamonds past, pried from an idols head in India, sold to a collector, bought by a French King, rescued by a sales man, bought by a women willing to do anything to have her way… and eventually mailed to a museum with hope the curse of the gem will never come again… And this story is throughout the actual plot so you get glimpses of it’s history here and there while reading a very interesting romance/mystery.
However, this is not a kid or teens book. Young adult only. (17 and up!) There is violence, gun shots, mention of people getting beheaded, getting hit by a car, surgery and light mention of blood and stitching closed a wound. (I was not happy while reading that part, but I also couldn’t pull my eyes away!) And there are some adult topics. One of the brothers is the “ladies man” and usually gets into places through women. There is mention of pants and skirts as well as getting into. (Not described, just mentioned in a conversation) and he does “seduce” a maid. So no-no for kids!
Over all, though this book has faults… It is sooo clean and good and I love it!!!!!!! It is perfect for those like myself who love a good art thief book! And perfect for those suspense lovers! -The Young Llama Reader.
- An AMAZING book for young adults!
- Action, adventure, and filled with art thieves!!!!!
- Lots of violence…
- Adult topics…
