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 are the only ones who might stand between the world and destruction—if they don't kill each other first.
I re -read this book again and it was just a fabulous read! Can not wait for Crooked Kingdom!!
Best Quote EVER:
“I will have you without armor, Kaz Brekker. Or I will not have you at all.”
You go girl! Inej, best wraith ever!
February 2016 review:
When you are reading this story you find that in the first chapter it’s just a book but by the second chapter you are all in and then suddenly you are at the end, you look up and you cringe because the story is over and the next book is not out yet. Then you want to just clench the book in your hands and breathe because you love the story so much and it’s over…for now….! Written beautifully in the third person allows you to it see all the characters equally. It’s categorized as YA fantasy but this book felt very adult. You don’t find yourself being annoyed by the young adult characters because they are multi-layered, dark, gritty, intense, and realistic within the world that is created. Not just the main characters, the supporting characters are just as dimensional. There are elements of fantasy, magic, and romance. The romance element is just that – an element of the story, it does not take over. I did really enjoy how it was there, lurking under the surface popping up occasionally just making the story more enjoyable.
Yes, this book is about a heist. Yes, it is filled with danger, betrayal, and success is against all odds. Yes, there is fantasy, magic, and even romance. Yes, you must read it!
