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 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.
