This book is an absolute must-read for lovers of YA fantasy. This is a standout novel of the year!

Kaz is the leader of the Dregs and a well-known thief who never gets caught. When a local merchant comes to Kaz with a job and payout of 30 million kruge, he immediately accepts. It’s nothing to break into the most highly guarded prison in Fjerda, right? Kaz gathers up the best of the best, setting sail with a Heartrender Grisha and Grisha hunter who hate loving each other, a Wraith who doesn’t make a sound, a privileged teen on the run and a sharpshooter with untold secrets.
