Ketterdam is 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 heist that could make him richer than his wildest dreams, the only catch is it is near impossible with a high chance of dying. This doesn’t deter Kaz though. He soon rounds up a team of six dangerous outcasts: a spy known as the wraith, a heartender with a love for waffles, an innocent convict, a sharpshooter who can’t walk away from a gamble, and a runaway with a privileged and complicated past. Together they can save the world or destroy it. I really liked how much the characters and conflicts are developed. Each character has an extremely well developed background, which is explained to us through flashbacks, and the characters actions, and thoughts. I also enjoyed how each chapter had a different character’s perspective, because it helped me get to know each character better. 5/5 stars - Serena, SAPL Read It & Review Contributor
