Love this whole series but there's a special place in my heart for book one. The alternate world is done very well here. The heroine, Pia, is strong but not without flaws. Dragos is overbearing, dominant and gorgeous but you know almost instantly that Pia will be his one weakness and yet make him a better man. Love the premise (why she steals) and loved even more what she steals (just perfect) The kind of book you are happy to read again and again.
