There are certain books you can’t help but want to pick up. I get that feeling with Thieves’ Gambit by Kayvion Lewis.

Maybe it’s the cover or the pitch for it, but Thieves’ Gambit seems like it’s going to be a big one this fall. That’s why I’m so excited to be able to share something from it and have a chance to get in on the hype early.

So many books are never given the proper attention so when I was approaching about sharing the first chapter from Thieves’ Gambit, I knew I couldn’t say no. Of course, I’d like to thank Nancy Paulsen Books for setting this one up and for allowing me the chance to share the first chapter with all of the Culturess readers.

It’s especially exciting to see this book getting so much love as it’s a debut story and one that I’m sure a lot of readers will enjoy. With its two comp titles being The Inheritance Games and Ocean’s Eleven, I feel like it’s poised to be a massive hit for both the author and the publisher.

Let’s get into the blurb before the first chapter of Thieves’ Gambit!

Before getting into the first chapter though, I wanted to include the description of Thieves’ Gambit so you know a bit more before going into it so we’ll share that and then get into the first chapter.

“At only seventeen years old, Ross Quest is already a master thief, especially adept at escape plans. Until her plan to run away from her legendary family of thieves takes an unexpected turn, leaving her mother’s life hanging in the balance. In a desperate bid, she enters the Thieves’ Gambit, a series of dangerous, international heists where killing the competition isn’t exactly off limits, but the grand prize is a wish for anything in the world—a wish that could save her mom. When she learns two of her competitors include her childhood nemesis and a handsome, smooth-talking guy who might also want to steal her heart, winning the Gambit becomes trickier than she imagined. Ross tries her best to stick to the family creed: trust no one whose last name isn’t Quest. But with the stakes this high, Ross will have to decide who to con and who to trust before time runs out. After all, only one of them can win.”
