Six of Crows by 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.
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."- summary from Amazon
Bardugo has yet another winning series on her hands. I absolutely loved this book and really enjoyed getting to know each character, as the book switches perspectives throughout. It's a big, long book but Bardugo's prose, world-building, and characterizations make the time fly by and difficult to set the book down. I remember reading a lot of it in one sitting. It's difficult to talk about it because I don't want to give a lot away, but it's pretty much an amazing book and I highly recommend it (along with her previous trilogy). I will always be a fan of Bardugo and will gobble up every new book she puts out.
Overall, another awesome book from Bardugo. I can't wait to read the sequel, though luckily the ending was not a huge cliffhanger (which is always nice).
