My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A band of misfits, an anti-hero protagonist, a chance to see a male protagonist in YA after what seems like eons, and last but not least, another chance to revisit Grisha-verse and devour the writing of the queen Leigh Bardugo. If any of these things doesn’t prick anyone’s interest, I don’t know what will.
This is a story of a crew of six thugs. Fighting every day of their lives against impossible odds, and all in desperate need of a fortune. When an opportunity arose, an impossible heist in return of unimaginable fortune. All of them dive in.
The crew has hatred, love, and moments of pure beauty threaded throughout the journey. I cheered and agonized over decisions they made. They made plenty of wrong choices too, which made the experience of reading them way more interesting.
Every POV had a well-grounded voice.
This book is just sheer brilliance, and I will make everyone I can read it. Highly recommended.
