Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price–and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can’t pull it off alone…

A convict with a thirst for revenge.

A sharpshooter who can’t walk away from a wager.

A runaway with a privileged past.

A spy known as the Wraith.

A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums.

A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes.

Six dangerous outcasts. One impossible heist. Kaz’s crew is the only thing that might stand between the world and destruction—if they don’t kill each other first.

I didn’t know what I was getting into when I started this book; I had only seen great reviews about it all over Tumblr. It moved quite slow at first, then suddenly I needed to know everything these characters went through, and once I found out, I needed more. I couldn’t help but ship the obvious couples and I really loved the diversity between the characters. They come from all walks of life; they’re all different colors, sizes, and orientations. The world building is vivid and immersive. I can’t wait to read the sequel because I already miss these characters so much. Bardugo is quickly becoming a favorite author.
