Wow! September might be that month for me this year, because it looks like a lot of what I am most anticipating in bookdom releases that month. Sucks to be me, huh?! September is not even a few months out.
Game of Thrones meets Ocean's Eleven in this brand-new book in the world of the Grisha by New York Times-bestselling author Leigh Bardugo. 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.While I am not a fan of comparing novels to other novels in an effort to project goodwill upon a book not yet reviewed or out to stand on its own merits... I do believe that based upon Leigh's other series, the Grisha Trilogy, that the Game of Thrones' reference fits. How excited are we that she is returning to this world?
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.
