Zoey thought she would never have to choose, but to save one husband, she will have to betray the other…

As Zoey Donovan-Quinn first sets foot in the faery homeland of her beloved Devinshea, life is perfect. Her enemy is defeated, her heart is full, and Neil and Sarah are at her side. Daniel and Dev are happy, so their visit to the sithein should be a pleasant honeymoon full of wonder and joy. Well, except for the part where Zoey needs to steal an ancient gem from the Queen of Faery in order to prevent Louis Marini from killing Daniel.

Reunited with her whole crew, stealing the magical artifact should be relatively easy, but unknown to Zoey, Dev, and Daniel, there are dark forces gathering against them. As her search for the Blood Stone gets underway, Zoey makes a startling discovery that will change her life, and Dev and Daniel’s forever.

When her new enemy finally strikes at Zoey from the shadows, her newfound happiness is shattered, and to avenge the horrific attack, Dev prepares his mother’s kingdom for war. Recovering from the attempt on her life, Zoey and Daniel desperately search for the stone and in the process unmask the real monster behind the assault.

Stopping the real threat, and saving Daniel, will force Zoey to choose sides in an epic war between the Seelie and Unseelie Fae, even if it means betraying Dev and his people.

Review by Elle

Well, aku ngga akan bercerita panjang2 disini. Steal the Sun adalah buku ke-4 dimana petualangan Zoey sebagai pencuri barang2 mistik berlanjut. Zoey yang sekarang sudah menikah dengan Dev setelah acara ritual kesuburan yang dilakukan mereka pada buku ke-3 mendapat kejutan baru. Kali ini Zoey mendapat ancaman dari Louis Marini; kepala dewan vampire sekaligus orang yg mengontrol Daniel Donovan. Demi Daniel, Zoey harus mencari Blood Stone yang ternyata berada di dunia peri.

Banyak hal tak terduga selama mereka berada di dunia peri. Walau Zoey diterima cukup baik di kerajaan peri terutama oleh sang Ratu yaitu ibu Dev sendiri, tapi Declan kembali menyebalkan. Dia merasa berkuasa karena akan menjadi raja peri baru dan kelakuannya yang sering on-off sangat menyebalkan. Dari permasalahan Seelie dan Unseelie, ramalan tentang Zoey, konflik hubungan antara Zoey, Daniel dan Dev hingga kemunculan karakter2 mistis yang selama ini ada. Karakter2 baru tersebut mempunyai kisah sendiri dan aku cukup menyukai mereka. Bisa dibilang Steal the Sun mengandung rollercoaster dan twist di beberapa bagian cerita hingga akhir. Aku merasakan emosional yang dashyat setelah mengetahui masalah baru yang terus bermunculan dan rasanya ngga bisa selesai.

Well, di buku kali ini lebih banyak action ketimbang romance. Oh ya, ada beberapa adegan *beep* yang membuatku syok dan melongo. Apa itu? Baca sendiri yah. Hahahah… Tapi masih dalam batas ‘normal’ bagiku jadi masih bisa lanjut baca. Overall, aku menikmati buku ini walau tidak bisa memberi rating sempurna tapi aku menyukai petualangan Zoey dkk di dunia peri yang tidak monoton dan berbeda dari sebelumnya.

Overall Rating
