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. (from Goodreads)
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?
