No spoilers in this rapid review of The God Heist by Jessica Flory.


The God Heist is perfect when you’re looking for a quick weekend fantasy read! I love the idea of an ocean formed from sand rather than water. The magic system was intriguing, and the characters engaging. Filled with both adventure and sweet romance, I was hooked from the start. The God Heist is a clean read, perfect for readers of any age. A short novel like this would be good for a reluctant reader or one intimidated by longer books. This novella might be the springboard they need to pull them into a longer fantasy book. I read this story before reading Oceans of Sand, and you can bet I’m ready to pick up that one after reading The God Heist.

Now that you’ve read our review of The God Heist, here’s the synopsis from Goodreads:

A disillusioned thief.

A dreaded gift.

An impossible heist to pull.

Jehn fears the day when his people will receive a moonstone from their goddess, Atoille, which will bestow a sand gift upon everyone. His rough upbringing on the street, pulling cons to survive, has taught him that people can’t be trusted.

When the dark god steals the moonstone and Jehn accidentally becomes the only recipient of its power, he must harness his unwanted gifts to recover the moonstone.

Jehn will have to master his new powers and dig up every skill he learned on the street if he’s going to cross the ocean of sand, infiltrate the dark god’s dwelling, and recover the moonstone.
Can he really pull a heist on a god?
