About the Author

Rachel Morgan spent a good deal of her childhood living in a fantasy land of her own making, crafting endless stories of make-believe and occasionally writing some of them down. After completing a degree in genetics and discovering she still wasn't grown-up enough for a 'real' job, she decided to return to those story worlds still spinning around her imagination. These days she spends much of her time immersed in fantasy land once more, writing fiction for young adults and those young at heart.

Rachel lives in Cape Town with her husband and three miniature dachshunds. She is the author of the bestselling Creepy Hollow series and the Ridley Kayne Chronicles, and also writes sweet contemporary romance under the name Rochelle Morgan.

An Outstanding 4.5 Stars. A Wonderful Start To This Magical Series!!⚡✨ Ridley grew up in era when magic was still freely used by all. It was used in jewellery, fashion, technology, medicine & in any way that could be thought of to enhance people's things or lives. Her Parents are happy, she's happy & loved and life is good!! When Ridley was about 8 years old her World was turned on its head! Earth had become so depleted by generations of abuse that a Global initiative grew. They wanted to harness magic to power everything like a series of giant batteries. Unfortunately on the day the harnessing took place a cataclysmic reaction occurred around the World Much of it was turned to wasteland with unstable & lethal magic having free reign. Her Mum wasn't in a protected city on that day so she apparently died!! Skip forward to start of senior year. Ridley only has two close friends now, Meera & Shen. Their family's are poor too. Ridleys Dad lost absolutely everything after that awful day, So they now live in a tiny flat above the antique store her Grandfather owned. She has secrets, they're huge, especially in a World where magic is now outlawed & carries the Death Penalty!! She's been contracted for a job, It's in the ultra exclusive Aura Towers. But little does she know that being successful will set off a chain of events that could cause untold damage & death!! She may have to lie, cheat, fake & try to trust the untrustable all while facing her own prejudices & insecurities. She will need to have complete faith in the guy she views as 'person who ruined her childhood friendships'. He turned her bestfriend against her after they lost everything. So foe becomes ally, does ally become foe? Is what they've all been told truth or has it all been a lie and is she the only one with magic within??, The main character was well rounded, but still has ample room to grow. I think Lilah & Asher both have lots of potential in future stories, I also liked Meera's little sister & think she could have a role to play too. Obviously Shen & Meera have more to say, but I fear Meera may be on the other side of things!! I wasn't a fan of either of them if I'm honest. They weren't very fleshed out though, maybe that's why I didn't connect with them?! I was engrossed & transported by this book!! There wasn't really any romance, though there is scope for it in future books It wasn't to badly missed either to be honest, I can rarely say that about a book. Lol I definitely recommend this one. Fancy a full day in another world? Yes please Debbie, 1970, UK

I received this copy for review from the author. This was a good start to a new series but I had a hard time keeping my focus even though the plots and twists were interesting. I enjoyed the new twist on a dystopian world of elemental magic. Ridley Kayne steals items to help people who need money in this new world. After witnessing a murder she and Archer Davenport have to work together to solve this mystery. Archer was a selfish rich brat when she knew him who has been out of touch for over a year before appearing suddenly right before the murder. We are left wondering what caused his change in attitude . The plot twist at the end was surprising and the cliffhanger will make you want to read the next book.

My first book by this author, but won't be my last. Riley is a thief, but worse than that she has magic. It's set in a dystopian world where magic has being forbidden. Riley has taken something that could endanger so many. When her best friend is blamed she know she has to get it back hopefully with out revealing her secret.

4.5 stars A thief. Elemental magic. A propensity for finding (or landing in) chaos and trouble. Ridley is a fantastic character and while the Creepy Hollow series is what endeared me to this author, this work grabbed me in a different way. Plenty of action so I was never bored, and in the moments the pace slowed down, I found my thoughts going at an insane pace trying to figure things out. I can't wait to see what Ridley gets into next!

Rachel Morgan’s ELEMENTAL THIEF is priceless. Seventeen-year-old Ridley Kaye is a futuristic Robin Hood, stealing from the rich and giving to the poor. However, her bigger crime is for using magic in a world where it has been outlawed. This dystopian Urban Fantasy is suitable for young adults. I loved this story. It was skillfully written and original. Ridley is a lovable character. Her family was wealthy until magic was outlawed. Now she is on a scholarship at a prestigious school hoping to make something of her life. Unfortunately, since she comes from a family a magic-users, she has become ostracized by her former friends. A series of events takes place forcing Ridley to work with an unlikely ally, Archer Davenport. He is the older brother of her former best friend. Additionally, one of the influential people that turned her friends against her. I enjoyed the banter between Ridley and Archer. Archer is a mysterious character that kept the story interesting. ELEMENTAL THIEF is fast-paced and full of excitement. It had a cliff hanger ending that is making me anxious to read book two in the Ridley Kayne Chronicles, expected to be released on November 7, 2018. ELEMENTAL THIEF would make a thrilling movie or television series. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
