Since the moment I was ripped from my mother's womb, I've been an outcast among my own kind. The Sidhe might possess magical Gifts, unbelievable wealth, and unfathomable power, but I don't want a thing to do with them. I ran away from their lands in the Highlands of Scotland when I was eleven years old, and I've never looked back. I don't need a clan. I've got my own family of highly skilled thieves who mean more to me than any Sidhe ever could. Unfortunately for me, the playboy heir to the Moncrieffe Clan has something I desperately need. To get it back, I'm going to have to plunge myself back into that world, no matter what the consequences may be. I suppose it's just as well I have sense of humor. I think I'm going to need it.… (mais)

Well for once I'm really glad I got past the most-liked reviews because the book turned out to be much more pleasant than I expected it to be!

The setting is quite nice, and I like that we progressively learn more on the Sidhe as we follow the main character's POV, but at the same time we don't know much about the other species existing in the world depicted by Helen Harper in this series as Tegs (I like her nickname way better than her name) already know them and thus doesn't dwell on what that entails. Her friends are amazing, I really hope to see more of them and especially all of them together again in the following book.

Integrity (that name... for real?) is not as bland as I thought her to be, and is actually quite catching. Sure, her jokes are getting too much, but we know that it's done on purpose, that the others don't like really like them and don't even pretend they do, but it's still part of her personality. So, although I want to kick her every time she starts a new one, I still appreciate that it's an aspect of her personality we got to witness, and to see she's not just "gifted" as the title suggests.

There something off about Tegs and Byron's "relationship" though. I'm still curious about it, but there something that I don't really like about it, although I can't pinpoint what it actually is that I'm having trouble with. I'll see how it goes in the next one!

It's the first book and it was good, but not magnificent or anything. It's only the beginning of the series, though, so I'll start reading the next one, hoping it gets to the next level now. ( )

I’m so freaking disappointed. I love Helen Harper’s Lazy Girls Guide series, well written UF that makes me laugh and has a good snarky heroine? Yes please! I’ve even read her Blood Destiny series and the mc is a little too angsty but it was still a pretty good read.... this though?!?

You’ll have to forgive me here, I’m not a prude but I am southern so there are a few things I have trouble with... people who don’t make small talk, not knowing the correct way to thank someone (which is to say ‘thank you, you didn’t have to do this!’) ... and I don’t know a main character who has sex with some rando that she’s never even had a conversation with (even though the writer makes it clear who the ‘love interest’ is going to be)

That’s right ‘Integrity’ and rando best some monster and just shag for no other reason then the writer using it to create more angst between her and Byron. I’m good, off to re-read Kate Daniels I guess ( )

As I read it, I found the main character a little clichéd in her thoughts and attitude and I felt very detached from her and the story. The book itself is good and the story line had a lot of potential, I just feel that they way it was executed was a little flat and did not live up to it’s potential. Integrity’s humor is very flat and ridiculous in her use of puns (my sister is like this so I understand it can be funny sometimes), and while I get that it is supposed o be part of her charm and personality I just felt like it was badly written.
That being said, it is a quick read and it really isn’t bad. However, if you enjoy books that are thought provoking or have characters you can relate to, you just won’t find that in this book. This fits more as a filler read between books you really want to read. Nonetheless, I think if you were contemplating reading it, give it a try! ( )

Integrity, a runaway at eleven, is the last surviving member of her Fey despised Sidhe clan, that was all but wiped out. She's an outcast, clanless, and has been living by her wits and survival skills as a thief for almost longer than she can remember. She's shocked to discover the high born clans have been keeping her in their sights. Wanting nothing to do with clans, Integrity's reluctantly forced back into their world of deceit and magical manipulation by none other than Byron,a playboy prince and heir to the Sidhe Stewart.

Integrity delves into her clans history only to find that it has been all but erased in all the Clan history books. She must employ all her well honed skills, not only to seek answers about Clan Adair's demise, but to survive the various attempts on her life once she returns to their world.
In Gifted Thief, there's a chemistry that develops between Integrity and Byron, but can she trust him and his motives? Helen Harper has also done a great job of character development with the collection of Integrity's partners in crime.
Helen, this is definitely a series I will continue to follow, Gifted Thief left me hanging and wanting to read Honour bound once it's released.
