Summer 2018 Reading Group Indie Next List
“An impossible heist, a fantasy world, and a crew of six very different people brought together in their quest for a life-changing fortune. Quietly dazzling in its complexity, Leigh Bardugo’s newest is the type of book that makes the rest of the world drop away while reading it. This book will consume you in the way only a brilliant fantasy book can. With characters that felt so real I wanted to meet them, and an action packed plot with plenty of subterfuge, intrigue, and complicated relationships, this book will quickly vault to the top of your favorite books list and firmly entrench itself there… at least until the sequel.”

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.
