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.
Review: I absolutely loved this book. I have always loved Leigh Bardugo’s writing, but she has really outdone herself with this. I know there was a lot of disagreement with the many point of view’s, but I felt that with so much that was going on, it helped understand everything better. While I really liked the Grisha trilogy, I LOVED THIS. You never come across a book that is about a bunch of criminals and outcasts performing a heist, and this satisfied that criminal part of me that longs for a book like this. I was very impressed with this.
I give this book 5/5 stars and would highly recommend it to anyone.
