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 think everyone who enjoyed the Grisha Trilogy is waiting for this book. It's set in the same world, but with different characters, and it sounds awesome! Plus, I'll pretty much read anything Leigh Bardugo writes at this point. I really love books about heists and Kaz definitely sounds like an interesting character. My one worry is that I won't enjoy all the POV switches, because I usually get attached to a few characters only and don't care about the other POVs. I'm hoping Leigh Bardugo can pull it off (because I really loved the characters in the Grisha series) but I'll just have to wait and see! Not long to go now until release date.

What are you waiting on this week?

  1. I just finished this and surprise surprise I loved it! I liked all the characters, which is unusual, but yeah, because of that the change of POV didn't bother me. I was interested in all the character arcs.

    Can't wait for you to get your hands on this, so I can hear your thoughts. I'd be interested in seeing who your fave characters are. :D

  2. Now I'm ashamed I haven't read the Grisha series yet. I have got to get going on it.
