Synopsis

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.


Review

I enjoyed it. I had a good time reading this book. Not only is the book beautiful but the story as well.

To start, this is my first Grisha novel. I haven't read the previous triology so I made deliberate slow reading to focus and create this vast imagery of races, countries, and alliances in my head.


I love the dynamics of Kaz's crew. Somehow these mixed personalities click and the time taken to develop love and friendship was a nice touch. It kept the pace flowing nicely.


Now the writing style takes a bit getting used to. It jumps from place to place without a page break. When I finally figured out what is happening, I had to run back to put pieces together. It is forgivable but needless to say I fell for it twice.


Overall, the story is very entertaining and I will continue with the series. It will lose a star for the writing inconsistency.
