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.

This book was good but I found one thing very annoying; the change in character in each chapter. It bugged the hell out me but it doesn’t mean it doesn’t deserve the 5 stars I’ve given it.

In all honesty I haven’t even read Leigh’s over series, the one in which this is also set, therefore I went in blind and that’s fine because I fell in love with it.

This book is phenomenal and the story is just amazing. I never expected going into this it would actually go the way it did and I’m glad because I was left wondering the whole way through about whether they were actually going to get out of it or whether they would be able to pull it off. That’s what makes a brilliant book and Leigh pulled it of splendidly.

This book is set around 6 main characters all very incredibly different. They all have their own personalities, their own set of remarkable skills and also their own downsides. I loved every single one of them and that’s the main thing.

My favourite character though has to be Kaz. He’s such a tortured soul and I was drawn to him. The way in which Leigh portrayed him throughout the book just made him even more better.

The story itself was incredible and the world building as well but another slight problem being that a lot of it wasn’t explained because I feel like I should have read the other series but that’s fine because I got the jist of it so I could understand it.

I also liked the fact that in between the story we get to delve into each characters past, making us feel like we know them a bit more and that helped.

But damn the ending of the book I was shocked. And I’m totally hooked. How could you do this to us?
