The book in three words: Stunning, Adventurous, Exciting


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.


What characters! What an adventure! This book intrigued me more than anything I have read this year. I wanted to know more about the characters and not about the story itself. Luckily the book offered me flashbacks of the characters previous life before they started the journey together.

All characters had a solid background and motives to accomplish the task they started at the beginning of the book. There was no amazing character involvement in the book but it did not need it as the past gave a deep point of view to everyone’s story.

But the plot. It was good with twists and turns that could have been harsher. I give some understanding because the book is intended for young readers. As an adult person, you are still able to enjoy it fully. I loved the story, I love the world and I love the characters Bardugo creates. It is sad that they are not real persons 😂 It would be fun to meet them.

I am not going to say anything about the world that Bardugo has created because it is perfect. Everything seems to be alive and I almost have a feeling that I could book a holiday to Grishaverse. And soon I can because this is going to be a TV show at Netflix. It is a dream come true!
