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

Kaz's crew are the only ones who might stand between the world and destruction—if they don't kill each other first.


This was such a good book.  I have been scoring on the good reads lately.  I bought this audio book a long time ago, and I don't know why I waited so long.  This was so so good.

There are a lot of characters in this book, and I loved all of them.  Some I love, and some I loved to hate.  

When Kaz and his crew are hired to free a scientist who is making a drug that increases the abilities of the Gresha(sp?) they couldn't refuse.  Kaz's team didn't even know how bad it was for the Gresha, but they are soon going to find out.

Kaz has an idea in his head, and is hoping that it all turns out right.  He hopes that everyone makes it off the island.  Kaz is hoping that all his planning and tricks pay off.

This book is full of adventure, and excitement.  I couldn't stop listening.  Every time I turned off my car, I had to put my ear phones right in.  It was non stop action for me.  The crew that Kaz has put together is full of different back grounds.  Different races, and very different personalities.  Yet they all mesh.  It makes for an exciting story.

I had to pay close attention because of all the characters!  It made it an even more interesting story.  The world is awesome, the story is awesome and Bardugo might be one of my favorite authors.  Her writing is amazing.  I have loved everything I have read of hers.  I cannot wait to start the other book.  I wish I would have read it soon :).

  1. I need to read this book! I know I'll love it and I don't know why I haven't read it already.

    The audiobook might be a good way to go. It sounds like it was really good!

    1. The narrators are wonderful! This series is awesome!

  2. I'm so glad you loved this one! It is seriously so good and I've still been kicking myself that I haven't read the second book even though I've had it since release... I've got to get it read!

    1. I have had it since it's release also, but there have been other books I "had" to read :).

  3. YES I will finally be listening to this next week and will post my thoughts in March. I cannot wait!

    1. I cannot wait to read what you have to say about it :)

  4. I listened to this one last winter and it took me a bit to get into the audiobook, but once I did, I was hooked. I need to get the second one. Glad you over it too.

  5. I got this book last year for Christmas and I still haven't read it! Ugh! I really NEED to read it now---so I can read the next one!!
