A thrilling new urban fantasy filled with magic and motorcycle gangs from Jennifer Rush, author of the Altered saga--perfect for fans of Beautiful Creatures.Eighteen-year-old Jemmie Carmichael has grown up 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 the Black Devils kindled motorcycle gang and the unofficial head of their turf.
When the entire kindled community rolls into Hawthorne for an annual festival, a rumor begins spreading 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.
Black magic and motorcycle gangs. I don't think I've ever written that down before to describe a YA book... I love it! Jennifer Rush's Devils & Thieves sounds really unique and original, just the kind of urban fantasy that I'm always on the lookout to read. I'm really curious about the "kindled" and what form their magic will take, especially Jemmie and her awry spells. And I want to know more about Crowe, the dangerous leader of the Black Devils! I'm definitely keeping an eye on Devils & Thieves this Fall.
