“Damaged, broken and morally lacking a lot of the time, but I loved them all!”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
As a huge fan of the original Grisha trilogy and Leigh Bardugo’s writing style I was doubly excited when I found out she was not only writing her next novel, but it was a return to the elaborate ‘Grishaverse’.
The story follows the coming together of six very different characters to pull off an impossible heist. Starting in the streets of Ketterdam, a grimy haven of gambling, vice, pleasure and danger we meet Kaz Brekker.
Kaz is top dog of the Dregs, one of the many gangs vying for power and control in city. He, as with all the characters, is superbly written and the mystery and danger he has created around himself to build his reputation really comes off of the page, he is the sort of character you want to like despite there being lots of reasons why you shouldn’t.
