Criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker has been offered wealth beyond his wildest dreams. But to claim it, he’ll have to pull off a seemingly impossible heist:

Break into the notorious Ice Court
(a military stronghold that has never been breached)

Retrieve a hostage
(who could unleash magical havoc on the world)

Survive long enough to collect his reward
(and spend it)

Kaz needs a crew desperate enough to take on this suicide mission and dangerous enough to get the job done – and he knows exactly who: six of the deadliest outcasts the city has to offer. Together, they just might be unstoppable – if they don’t kill each other first.

THIS BOOK WAS AMAZING

I didn’t want to believe everyone else when I started this book. I was like, “hey guys, ya’ll need to chill. It probably isn’t the shit. Hype is bs. Calm yourselves.”

Yeah… But then I picked the book up and read it.

And I honestly don’t think I’ve read such a compelling novel with the best characters since the Lunar Chronicles. As in, everyone is shipped with everyone and it’s beautiful because literally everyone has their own characterization and plot developments. Yeah, it’s that awesome.
