Kaz, Inej, Nina, Wylan, Jesper, and Matthias must go on an adventure to complete this mission and gain the money that they needed.
I don’t want to go into an in depth review for this book. This book was so good to me, that if you haven’t read it, I don’t want to spoil anything for you. There is romance, both heterosexual and homosexual, although neither is graphic or even focused on for the majority of the story. There are characters of all different abilities, ethnic groups , and backgrounds. No one drags the story down however, everyone contributes in their own unique way. The story is told by all six points of view at one point or another. And if you know me, you know I sometimes have problems with certain stories when they are written poorly from more than one point of view. However, in this story that is not the case, as the story is told smoothly from one point of view to the next.
The story touches on some major issues, such as female exploitation, slavery, and social classes, but it never makes light of any of the issues that it touches on. Bardugo just slips them into the storyline to make you think about it, but never does it disrespectfully or even unnecessarily.
I don’t know why I took so long to read/review this book, I recommend it to everyone.
Overall Rating: 6/5
