CHO CHO CHO. What's that sound you ask? It's the hype train! And guess who's joining the hype train? Me!
This book is just as awesome as I was told. There wasn't a moment that wasn't packed with clever scheming, action scenes and funny dialogue. When I put it down I kept thinking about our gang of thieves, runways and criminals would be doing next. I really like how the motivation for the main, impossible job in the book is just money. There are other intents for some of our characters, but most of them just want to get buried under a lot of coin. I can respect that.
There are many different POVs in the book, but since all of them are good, I was never sad to let a character go to get the view from a different one. Of course, I had my favorites *cough* Inej *cough* but they all interested me enough to keep going. Of course, the ending broke my heart, but that just means I need to hurry to the next one!
I also love how it's a duology, although by the time I finish the second one I'll probably regret liking these when I'm left begging for more. Gimme!
