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

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

MY THOUGHTS

This was my third time reading this book, and I love this crew more and more each time I read it. The Crows are my bbs.

This book starts off a bit slow slow as the characters, setting, and conflict are introduced, but once the story takes off I AM HOOKED! If you are struggling to get into the book, please give it about 100-150 pages before you set it aside.

The story is so clever and always keeps me guessing. I cannot recommend this duology enough.
