The Thief on the Winged Horse

Absolutely thrilled to share my review for this stunning book.

A dazzling mixture of crime, romance, magic and myth from the acclaimed author of The Psychology of Time Travel. 

The Kendrick family have been making world-famous dolls since the early 1800s. But their dolls aren’t coveted for the craftmanship alone. Each one has a specific emotion laid on it by its creator. A magic that can make you feel bucolic bliss or consuming paranoia at a single touch. Though founded by sisters, now only men may know the secrets of the workshop. 

Persephone Kendrick longs to break tradition and learn the family craft, and when a handsome stranger arrives claiming doll-making talent and a blood tie to the Kendricks, she sees a chance to grasp all she desires. 

But then, one night, the family’s most valuable doll is stolen. Only someone with knowledge of magic could have taken her. Only a Kendrick could have committed this crime…

I have absolutely loved this book, it has been impossible to put this one down. This is a book that completely engaged me and pulled me in.

There is absolutely no way I could’ve guessed who the thief was. I had really high hopes for this book after seeing it all over bookstagram and twitter. I have not been disappointed. I am so thankful for the opportunity to review this one.

I was initially attracted by the beautiful cover, it just screamed at me to be read. The story hasn’t disappointed, this is an author who has pulled me in and made it absolutely impossible to put down.

I haven’t read anything by this author previously but I definitely haven’t been disappointed. I am going to add others to my TBR.

This is definitely a book to shout about. A five star read which is worthy of five hundred stars.
