Why did I wait so long to read this? Why is Leigh Bardugo amazing at building worlds? WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME TO READ SHADOW OF BONE FIRST?
Okay from the top (make it drop). Kaz is this gang leader, who is offered a hefty amount to break someone special out of prison. Not just any prison, the most secure and guarded prison in this universe.
He rallies up the most discombobulated group of people ever:
“A gambler, a convict, a wayward son, a lost Grisha, a Suli girl who had become a killer, a boy from Barrel who had become something worse.”
And what commences is the most elaborate heist ever, it makes me laugh, hold my breath and even pray.
No seriously, why did I not read this sooner?
I adored Wylan and Jesper. Just those two together?
This book gave me so much more, I am rooting for everyone, and I mean everyone. It sounds so simple, but the way Bardugo executes this book? Phenomenal.
I honestly can’t fault it. I couldn’t leave this world, it seems so simple but I can’t even imagine how much time the multi-perspective world-building would have taken.
I cannot say anything more without ruining anything. All I can say is Kaz is a badass and I may or may not, love his badassness (is that a word?).
