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.
Kaz’s crew are the only ones who might stand between the world and destruction—if they don’t kill each other first.
I was worried about reading this book, and I put it off for such a long time. I am so happy that I finally sat down and read it though, it was so much better than I thought it was going to be. And that is saying a lot considering all the hype about this book out there.
The story takes place after the Grisha trilogy ends, but it is it’s own series. You don’t have to read the Grisha series first, but I was glad that I did. It helped me gain knowledge about the world, and the Grisha’s powers that you don’t really get in this book.
The character were well written, and each one was so unique. I couldn’t help but love Kaz. I would gladly be his friend in real life.
The story was a little slow in places, but it wasn’t bad enough for me to sit there thinking “come on… let’s go!” For the most part this book flowed forward very naturally and quickly, and it made reading the book much easier and enjoyable.
I don’t want to get into to much detail about the book, but if you haven’t read this book yet, you should!
