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. -Goodreads


While I loved the Grisha trilogy, this book was not as interesting to me, although, don’t get me wrong, it was good. My first complaint is that I felt there were too many characters’voices. I’m used to 1-3 major narrators, having 6-8 was confusing at times, particularly since I listened to the audiobook. Side note: Kaz is dumb, he is obviously in love and his inability to accept that irritated me. The heist itself was intriguing. I liked how there wasn’t a romance spurring this novel along, it was the action and adventure doing the work with some flings on the side.
