    One thought on “The Art of Stealing Time”

    1. Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick & Dirty: A fun, lighthearted romp that, while a little light on plot, is still extremely entertaining and funny.Opening Sentence: “Ticket, yes.”The Review:Gwen has always had to watch out for her mothers, two very well-meaning, but often misdirected witches. She’s usually able to keep them out of trouble, but this time, they’ve gone too far by kidnapping (in their words, liberating) a woman from her nursing home. On the run from the police, G [...]

    2. Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Chelle:I was completely geared up for this book. I thoroughly enjoyed Time Thief, thought it was genius and fresh, and then after Time Crossed I was salivating because let's be honest, that was just a dirty tease. I'll be honest though, I got a good 30% into The Art of Stealing Time and was a bit worried. It just wasn't moving as fast as I had anticipated and I was waiting for something big to happen to kick things into gear. And then they entered [...]

    3. Just wanted to let everyone know that I'm just trying to counteract the idiot that gave this book a 1 star rating when it isn't even close to being released yet. I don't think it's fair that others should be falsely warned away from this book because some snarky nit-picker happens to dislike this author. I'll come back when the book is actually out (or sooner if I happen to get an advanced copy) and write a real review, but until then everyone should just keep their minds open. Katie's style has [...]

    4. 3.5 starsTHE ART OF STEALING TIME is the second full length novel in Katie MacAlister’s Traveller series. Travellers are supernatural beings who ‘steal’ time from other supernaturals or humans in an attempt to turn back the clock to change what has happened or prevent a tragedy from occurring. This is Gwen and Gregory’s storyline: Gwen is the daughter of two wiccans (two moms) and Gregory Faa is a traveller but unlike the first storyline, there is very little ‘stealing of time’ and m [...]

    5. I won this book as an ARC giveaway I was somewhat worried about this book, because I DNF'd the first book in this series, Time Thief. I felt Time Thief was poorly done, and all the characters in it just annoyed me. But I thought that since the first one was written at the time that Katie's husband died, I should try the next one. I certainly wouldn't be anywhere near my A game if my husband died, so I should give the benefit of the doubt to others in the same boat.I liked this book much more tha [...]

    6. The Art of Stealing Timeis the second of a new series by Katie MacAlister, and while I think it could be read as a stand-alone, I enjoyed the first book thoroughly and recommend reading it first. This books starts off with someone who is following Gwenhwyfar “Gwen” Owens around, and that beginning kind of threw me since it was very different than how the first book started and I wasn’t sure I like the way it read.Gwen takes over narration and I fell in love. There was more of that signatur [...]

    7. I'm sorry Miss Katie but this one isn't one of your best works. Sure it had the wit and "what the hell just happened" moments, but the story was just all over the place with the same characters moving around and showing up at odd times. Like I said before this book felt like it had nothing to do with time thieves. You had one time moment at the beginning and it just rolled down hill from there. The book felt like Alice in Wonderland meets Narnia meets really old people. Halfway thru I kept think [...]

    8. Leider überhaupt nicht mein Fall. Die Idee zu dem Buch ist wirklich nicht schlecht finde ich. Es hapert allerdings danach an so ziemlich allem anderem das ein Buch gut macht. Keine spannenden Charaktere, keine tiefen Hintergründe, dafür oberflächliche Dialoge und einfallslose Kulissen. Es ist und bleibt seicht und oberflächlich. Dazu kommt Romantik und Humor, die beide völlig fehl schlagen. Es tut mir wirklich leid es so ausdrücken zu müssen, aber das Buch hat mir wirklich nicht gefallen [...]

    9. KurzbeschreibungFür die Hexe Gwenhwyfar Byron Owens sind die Worte Ruhe und Normalität in Verbindung mit ihren zwei chaotischen Hexenmüttern Fremdwörter. Die beiden sind schlimmer als ein Sack Flöhe… unmöglich zu hüten, denn immer wieder bringen sie sich in brenzlige Situationen aus denen Gwen sie dann wieder retten muss. Doch dieses Mal ist etwas anders, denn Gwen gerät bei dem Versuch sie aus dem Schlamassel zu befreien in den sie sich diesmal gebracht haben, in Lebensgefahr. Nur gut [...]

    10. Inhalt:Gwenhwyfar Bryon Owens zieht das Chaos magisch an. Hat sie nicht schon genug mit ihrem eigenen chaotischen Leben zu tun, dass vor Fettnäpfchen, Problemchen und Peinlichkeiten förmlich schreit, so muss sie sich gleichzeitig auch um ihre magisch begabten Mütter kümmern, die ihr das Leben zusätzlich noch erschweren. So kommt es, dass die Beiden dem Chaos die Krone aufsetzen, als sie eine sterbliche alte Dame aus dem Pflegeheim entführen. Ehe sich Gwen versieht befindet sie sich nicht n [...]

    11. The story follows Gregory who has started his job with the watch. He is on the hunt for a witch who is accused of selling her magic to humans, among other things. After a close encounter with Gwen -see the novella Time Crossed- he cannot stop thinking about her. So, when he mistakenly confused her with his target, the hunt really takes off.Meanwhile, Gwen has had it up to here with her mothers. When their latest escapade, ends with mortal police involvement, she knows they need a place to hide. [...]

    12. Der 395 Seiten lange zweite Band der Time Thief Reihe von Katie MacAlister überzeugte mich total!Gwenhwyfar Byron Owens besucht ihre beiden Hexenmütter in Wales und reist nach Malwod-Upon-Ooze, um die beiden Frauen aus einem selbst eingebrockten Schlamassel zu befreien. Dummerweise stirbt sie, statt die Situation zu lösen - und das kann Gregory Faa (Bekannt aus Band 1) nicht zulassen! Schließlich beunruhigt ihn die dunkelhaarige Schönheit auf eine ganz eigene WeiseIndem er sie rettet, zieht [...]

    13. I just finished the second book in Katie MacAlister's newest series, the Time Thief series. This one takes place in her distinctly Katie universe, along side the Dark Ones and Dragons series'. The paranormal flavor of this series involves the Travellers, a group that many people mistake for the Romany mortals. The Travellers though can manipulate time by stealing it from others and then resetting it back a short amount. Travellers can also manipulate lightning. MacAlister is the queen of the rev [...]

    14. Setting: Wales – airport, Lambfreckle School for Womyn’s Magyk, castle – with stone Animal Wall; Anwyn, Welsh afterlife – two fighting camps; Characters:Gwen Byron formal name – Gwenhwyfar Byron Owens: Apothecarist; can’t remember spells so not a witch like her mothers; lives across an ocean, but still steps in to rescue them; few months ago intervened when they were about to sell magic to humans, was pushed off a cliff by. And revived by Gregory, who stole time from Death to go back [...]

    15. 4.5 starsReview originally appeared on Books That HookIf you need a good dose of silliness, you should read The Art of Stealing Time. It’s a cute, unusual, story that made me laugh out loud at times.It’s hot, too. Even within a very weird environment, MacAlister’s characters manage to create sparks, literally.I liked this book more than the first one in the series. The main character wasn’t as annoying as the main character in Time Thief.A lot of the characters were endearing, especially [...]

    16. I was disappointed in this book. It wasn't terrible, it wasn't even bad, I just had much higher hopes for what I received out of this book. Perhaps I should have read the forward before I was halfway done with the book - I was quite confused by the first sixty pages of the book being all transcripts and notes by characters I didn't particularly care for. It wasn't until I read the forward did I realize it was a short story, ENTIRELY SEPARATE, that sets up the preface for the book. My favorite bi [...]

    17. More of a 3.5.Ok, when I buy into a new series, I kinda like it to actually BE a new series, rather than a branch on an existing series. Know what I mean? So the author created this world and… she periodically decides to create new people in this world. Ok, fine, well enough, but what's with the whole DeAth/reclamation agent thing? Considering how many ghosts abound in her world, they must not be doing their job very well.Sigh… So for once our h is NOT clueless about who and what she is, but [...]

    18. I really didn’t know what to expect when I picked this book up for review. Although new to the series, I found the glossary at the back useful and didn’t have much trouble following this book. It seems some characters from the first book make a cameo, but the focus is primarily on a new couple, Gwen and Gregory. I do recommend reading the short-story included with the book (for me, it was located in the front of the eARC) as it details when Gwen and Gregory first met. I think the story itsel [...]

    19. The Art of Stealing Time is the second book in the Traveller series and does not disappoint! Gwen is an alchemist with a lot on her hands. Her two wacky Wiccan mothers have a knack for getting themselves into trouble leaving Gwen with damage control. This time they have seriously crossed the line and liberated a “student” of theirs from a nursing home. With the Watch and others after them, the Welsh afterlife Anwyn seems the best place to go and hideout. Gregory Faa, Time Thief and probation [...]

    20. Have you every watched a movie that you dare not walk away from for fear you would miss one tiny thing that would have you saying "What happened? What did I miss?". This story is one of those. So many things happening at once with the heroine VERY close to pulling her hair out because she's the only one who can see the whole picture. I laughed my ass off! Here's a little peek: A girl gets tossed off a cliff and dies and is brought back by a "Traveller" who can steal time, and does so to the soul [...]

    21. This is the kind of fluffy fun I expect from Katie MacAlister--but it has a flaw I also have come to expect from her books. The protagonist is interesting (I love her moms), the plot is good, but the male love interest comes along and jars me out of the story by constantly thinking about the main character as if she were a Mary Sue. Is he a "Wanna Sue"? A love-struck boob? A guy who has turned over his man card? I'm not sure how to say it, but while I would expect some nice thoughts about the wo [...]

    22. I love Katie MacAlister books. I really do. I usually read them in a night no matter how much sleep I have to give up, but after a week I haven't got passed page 200. I kept coming up with unconscious reasons not to read. I even cleaned up in the kitchen once during the time I set aside for reading. I tried and tried and just couldn't get into it.The concept of the main character having two mothers is a good one, but the constant mentioning of it drove me nuts. Her getting up set when it took ot [...]

    23. Katie MacAlister is one of the author's on my auto-buy list, so it was a no brainer for me to purchase this book. I read the first book in the Time Thief series and liked it a lot. Unfortunately this one left me wondering if it was just me or if Katie was off her game.I enjoy the overall concept behind the series and this book, however, it seemed that it went beyond the quirkiness that I'm used to seeing from Katie.If you have read the first Time Thief book, you should definitely read this one a [...]

    24. Katie MacAlister is one of my favorite paranormal authors, so to say I really did not like this novel hurts a little. As much as MacAlister's dialogue is often like a Robin Williams riff, this novel was that on crack. It was too much of all the good things that normally set MacAlister apart in the best ways. The story was definitely Salvador Dali bizarre, taking place in the Welsh underworld/afterlife Annwn. I wasn't wild about the previous novel and novella in the Time Thief series, but Gregory [...]

    25. This is the second traveller book. And I have read more than 15 book by Katie MacAlister so far, so I knew what was going to happen.The fact that this book is set in Anwyn, the Welsh afterlife is a nice change, but it adds a lot of non sense to the story.Then there are Gregory and Gwen, they are the romantic pair of the book, and as usual is happy ever after love at first sight.On the other hand are all the supporting characters, Peter is a repeat from the first book, then there are Gwen's moms, [...]

    26. Gwen is an alchemist. (At least supposedly. We never see her do any alchemy.) She is going to great lengths (and risking her life and freedom) to protect her two moms from themselves, since they insist upon breaking otherworld laws by selling magic to mortals. Gregory is a Traveller, and a new member of the Watch--and his first assignment is to arrest Gwen's mother. But of course, he is far too distracted by Gwen to do his job.There are things to like about this book. The setting is interesting. [...]

    27. I love Katie and her amazing imagination. This book was very funny all around, but the story was a little crazier than usual. I did like Gwen and was pleased to see Gregory's story, and I look forward to the next Traveller. These are books I buy and keep so I can reread when the new books come out. A silly dialogue that made me laugh, "Please tell me you didn't kidnap someone and the police aren't chasing you". "Ok< We didn't kidnap anyone and the police aren't chasing us." "Is that true?" "N [...]

    28. Four stars to Katie MacAlister's The Art of Stealing Time from her Time Thief series. This book takes the reader into another realm, literally! Gwen, the heroine of the book, is one I can relate to. She's blissfully big boned and has a very strong mind and doesn't just rely on men to do what needs to be done. The way she sacrifices herself to ensure her mothers stay out of trouble is very understandable. The fact that she has two mothers also shows an author that is able to include everyone. I w [...]

    29. Very funny. Unlike many, I actually preferred the first in this series to this second book. The silliness is a bit over the top, even by Katie standards (which are pretty silly, and one reason I love her writing).I liked the two lead characters a lot, and liked them together. I didn't love the setting of Anwyn, the welsh afterlife. Crossing into Anwyn is a bit like falling down the rabbit hole in Alice and Wonderland, with all the surreal implications, but not as interesting.It was a good, fun r [...]

    30. A great fun, funny continuation in the Traveller series from Katie MacAlister. I’ll admit, if you haven’t read the previous book in this series it can be a little confusing so I wouldn’t recommend starting here. Gwen knows her two mothers are up to no good, she just can’t seem to get through to them. As she tries to protect them from jail time, Gregory is hot on their trail ready to bring them in. With the almost trade mark silliness of a Ms. MacAlister novel I really enjoyed the journey [...]
