Publisher: Henry Holt and Company
Release Date: September 29th, 2015
Summary: Game of Thrones meets Ocean’s Eleven in this brand-book in the world of the Grisha by New York Times-bestselling author Leigh Bardugo.
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.
For any of you that have read The Grisha series, you know that Leigh Bardugo can seriously deliver an interesting world full of complex characters and a plot to keep you on your toes. So if that wasn’t enough, this book also like something I would absolutely adore; a heist being pulled off by a group of misfits. How could that possibly get any better? Oh wait, how about we put it in the same world as The Grisha series and include a bunch of other awesome stuff, like revenge, spies, horrible boys (or maybe just one in particular), and no doubt tons of witty banter between this cast of characters. If you still aren’t sold, just scroll up a little more and take a good long look at that cover again. That’s what I thought.
