    It’s no secret that I loved the first book, Scarlet. I’d also like to point out that I was a naïve git with no literary taste whatsoever at the time, so please ignore my previous thoughts.When I first requested this on NG, I was ecstatic. Like, pee-my-pants excitement. And what do I end up getting? Pages and pages of ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. I even stopped midway while reading this and subsequently forgot about its existence. It took quite a bit...

    "I'm not making you do anything, Gisbourne. Hurt me if you want, but I've felt pain. I know what pain is. And it's less than love, than loyalty, than hope. You can make me cry, or scream, or whatever else. All that will mean is that I feel the pain, that I'm still alive. And as long as I'm living I can promise I'm not afraid of you, Gisbourne. I'm afraid of sitting quiet while people like you and Prince John going by unchecked. That's what I'm af...

    Also re-reading for tomorrow!!! AGH! Excited! :D He let me down and his mouth left mine. His forehead touched mine, and I couldn't bring my eyes to open just yet."These schemes may benefit the people, Scarlet, but I fight for you." His hands squeezed my waist a little bit, and it made my blood run fast. "I will always fight for you." Aaaaggghhh SO. GOOD. Is it weird I'm speechless? Because I am well and truly at a loss for words. It's like...I lo...

    This wasn't as good as the first one but still not disappointing. Also, there's a lot of beating going on here so i gotta warn you.

    After the ending of Scarlet, anyone would need to pick Lady Thief up immediately. Now that everyone knows just who Scarlet is, and why Gisbourne was so interested in finding her, they are trying to come to terms with the revelations. However, Prince John is due to arrive, to appoint a new Sheriff for the county. Obviously, everyone wants Robin to be Sheriff, and back in his rightful home, but John has another idea. He wants Gisbourne, and for thi...

    I have a confession. *deep breath* Lady Thief has become my favorite retelling of Robin Hood.  Ever.  I'm so sorry movies I've watched countless times, but this book was absolutely perfect.  But the funny thing is, I started out oh so cautious.  I was beyond nervous that the love triangle would make a reappearance, but thankfully it's long gone.  In its place are far more sinister things to try to keep Rob and Scar apart, like torturous nigh...
  • Christina (A Reader of Fictions)
    Normally, I don’t bother borrowing ARCs from people. I mean, I could have waited a month and saved the three bucks each spent shipping this book back and forth. For Lady Thief, I made an exception and accepted Shae’s offer. Dudes, it was one hundred percent worth it. Before I read Lady Thief, I reread Scarlet, which, I have to tell you, is even better the second time. As good as Scarlet is, I do think Lady Thief might be even better, though b...

    I stared at him , drinking him in till I felt tipsy with the sight of him , and pulled him closer to me , wanting to touch him.His arms came around me and I pressed my face to the crook of his neck . "we`d never be happy without adventure " I murmured to him.I think this scene describes perfectly Scar and Robs relationship ! I dont know where to begin to express my love for this book ! I was blown away with the first book and couldnt write a revi...
  • Mel (Daily Prophecy)
    First thoughts after finishing:NO.WAY. :OWhat am I supposed to do now?EDIT:----- book destroyed me. She stomped on my heart and completely shattered me. It contains all the feelings and this is a book where the inside is just as pretty as the outside. I do need to warn you for spoilers if you haven’t read Scarlet or the blurb for Lady Thief. I know some of you guys don’t read blurbs. If you did, it...
  • Cyp
    FUUUUCK that was good.And now I have to wait...again...But I'm glad I waited for some time before starting on LT so my wait for Untitled (Scarlet #3) is shorter.LADY THIEF was so much darker than SCARLET, mainly cause Gaughen isn't afraid to cause our characters irrevocable pain and harm, no matter how central they are to the story. She is one cruel woman, but irrefutably a talented author. There were SO MANY secrets revealed and layers added to ...

I love it so much. Scarlet impressed me so much, but Lady Thief just solidified my obsession ummm... I mean... my completely understandable and justified preoccupation... with this series.How do I love thee? Let me count the ways...ScarletIf "Scarlet" isn't ...
  • Alicia Batista (Addicted Readers)
    OMG.... This book was all kinds of... It's torn my heart to shreds, and left a wound so big that I think it might never heal!! But it was soooo good, and if I didn't already have book 3 in my hands, I think I might just drop dead right here, right now....;) This is how I feel about the next book... Because the Loin Heart's rage and vengeance is about to be let loose... ~~~~~EDITED REVIEW~~~~~ 4 Stars LADY THIEF was a thrilling follow-up to...

  • Danielle (Love at First Page)
    4-4.5 starsIf, like me just a couple of weeks ago, you have not yet picked up this wonderful series by A.C. Gaughen, I have to say that it is one of the best you could ever binge read. Full of action, swoons, heartbreak, and fantastic storytelling, you will never want to put these books down. I fell in love with this re-imagining of Nottingham and its fearless band of thieves. I'm sure every single one of you knows the tale of Robin Hood, but did...
  • Perla The IB Teen Book Blogger
    This is a powerhouse of a story. A.C. Gaughen absolutely crushes expectations with this follow up to Scarlet. If you loved Scarlet, just wait until you get your hands on Lady Thief, intense and gut wrenching only just scratch the surface of this astoundingly emotional read. Pre-order it now!
  • Amber (Books of Amber)
    Despite really disliking this trilogy so far, I’m quite enjoying reviewing it. It is helping me get everything off my chest. And while I’m not exactly cool, calm, and collected, it is still a lot of fun to tell everyone exactly how awful this trilogy is. I reviewed Scarlet a few days ago and I wasn’t exactly positive with that review, but my review for Lady Thief is going to be incredibly more negative because this book is a piece of crap.A...

    4.5WHY? WHY ALL THESE FEELS?"I prayed for faith.And I vowed vengeance."So. A proper review. How does one write a proper review when everything hurts? (It's all Anna and Claudia's fault, I knew I should have waited to read this.)The thing is I liked Lady Thief more than Scarlet. Lady Thief is darker because the characters are trying to deal with everything that went down in the first book. Rob is trying to heal and struggles with his nightmares an...
  • majo
    This book made me sobb at the end because of certain things that happened that were so fucking unfair.I have mixed feelings about this book and this trilogy in general, and that's because there are parts that are soooo good, but to get to those parts, I had to read some borings ones. There are scenes that are super slow, and that kind of made me lose interest in the story. So that's why I can't give this book a higher rating. But overall, I'm enj...

Nottingham is now occupied by soldiers who are there to oversee the building of the new wall since it was destroyed when Scarlet and the band of merry men destroyed it.

  • Brittany (The Book Addict's Guide/Novelly Yours)
    Initial Impressions 5/27/15: WELL. That was another very good read! Still not quite in love and feeling all the feels but these books are really great! I think it's very, very hard because there was so much hype -- especially with this book -- so I knew it was going to be good but I essentially protecting myself from the hype. I'm okay throwing myself into feels but hype has gotten me too many times. There were definitely some great romantic fee...
