VBT and Giveaway: Thea Reeves and The Tear of the Morning Star by Dmitriy Kushnir

Thea Reeves and The Tear of the Morning Star
by Dmitriy Kushnir


GENRE: YA Fiction



Thea Reeves is an ordinary girl, from an ordinary family with financial troubles, living in a small town of Johnston. After she starts an after school job at The Magic Shop in order to help herself financially, her life becomes more extraordinary with every day.



The rest of the day went by rather smoothly.  Just after five o'clock, people from all walks of life began to pour into The Magic Shop.  Some were buying, but surprisingly, many were there for the coffee and to read books.  To Thea, Jamie explained that most of their customers are business oriented individuals, who find magic as a way to unwind after a long stressful day at work.  They come in, read, usually never buy books, but on occasion buy a souvenir or two for friends and family, and almost always leave good tips.

What Thea found fascinating is that no one tried to steal anything all day, and everyone was polite and courteous.  Jamie did not know how to explain that, but she told Thea that there is a magic spell on The Magic Shop, where people leave all of their anger, worries and problems at the door, and those who can't ... never come inside.

It felt strange, but Thea also felt that on her first day at The Magic Shop, she did not once think about her chores, problems at home, or money difficulties her parents have.  The entire time she was just happy to be at The Magic Shop.

What was really exciting is that at the end of the day, Thea found herself holding thirty five dollars in tips from coffee drinking and book reading patrons.  If every day would be like this, that dream car would become a reality by the time Thea would receive her driver's license.

My Review

Thea Reeves and The Tear of the Morning Star is the first book from Dmitriy Kushnir’s series, Thea Reeves. It is, also, the first book I have read by him. I enjoyed this story. It is a very quick read that entertained me from the start. Thea Reeves is one character that was to be introduced to. 

I give Thea Reeves and The Tear of the Morning Star four stars. I look forward to reading the next book in the series to see what happens next with Thea Reeves. 

I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
