Synopsis from Goodreads: 

Power corrupts. Magic kills.

Eighteen-year-old Jemmie Carmichael is surrounded by magic in the quiet town of Hawthorne, New York. In her world, magic users are called “kindled,” and Jemmie would count herself among them if only she could cast a simple spell without completely falling apart. It doesn't help that she was also recently snubbed by Crowe—the dangerous and enigmatic leader of Hawthorne’s kindled motorcycle gang, the Devils’ League.

When the entire kindled community rolls into Hawthorne for an annual festival, a rumor spreads that someone is practicing forbidden magic. Then people start to go missing. With threats closing in from every side, no one can be trusted. Jemmie and Crowe will have to put aside their tumultuous history to find their loved ones, and the only thing that might save them is the very flaw that keeps Jemmie from fully harnessing her magic. For all her years of feeling useless, Jemmie may just be the most powerful kindled of all.


Angsty Teens, Magic, Hot Guys, and a Motorcycle Club. Should I keep going or do you already want to buy this novel? You should probably just go ahead and get to your nearest book store and pick this bad boy up. But if that description didn't sell you, then keep reading. I LOVED THIS NOVEL! Did you already figure that out? Good. I've never read a novel by Jennifer Rush before, but I now know that D&T will not be my last! 

I love fantasy novels in general, but something about this synopsis really stuck out to me. It had a lot of similarities to other YA fantasy novels, but it was also so different at the same time. I loved the biker gang feel, and I really enjoyed the fast pace of the novel. I didn't know what to expect and there were quite a few plot twists that kept me guessing!

In summary, I loved the characters, I loved the setting, and I absolutely loved the plot twists. Devils & Thieves did not disappoint and I can't wait to read more from Rush in the future. I huge thank you to Novl Books and Little Brown Books for Young Readers for sharing this book in exchange for an honest review. I would recommend this novel to readers who enjoyed the Beautiful Creatures series and readers who enjoy YA fantasy novels. 

Rating 4/5
