Books On Our Radar: Fire and Heist by Sarah Beth Durst
Fire and Heist by Sarah Beth Durst is a bit of an anomaly. The summary starts off pretty basic, but takes a terrific twist when it’s states that the main character can turn into a dragon…
Heists, dragons, and a criminal crew all sound great. It sort of sounds like Six of Crows with an intriguing spin. I am definitely looking forward to this one! Fire and Heist is releasing on December 4th, so be sure to add this one to your TBR to stay informed.

In Sky Hawkins’s family, leading your first heist is a major milestone–even more so than learning to talk, walk, or do long division. It’s a chance to gain power and acceptance within your family, and within society. But stealing your first treasure can be complicated, especially when you’re a wyvern–a human capable of turning into a dragon.
Embarking on a life of crime is never easy, and Sky discovers secrets about her mother, who recently went missing, the real reason her boyfriend broke up with her, and a valuable jewel that could restore her family’s wealth and rank in their community.
With a handpicked crew by her side, Sky knows she has everything she needs to complete her first heist, and get her boyfriend and mother back in the process. But then she uncovers a dark truth about were-dragon society–a truth more valuable and dangerous than gold or jewels could ever be.
