Criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker has been offered wealth beyond his wildest dreams. But to claim it, he’ll have to pull off a seemingly impossible heist: Break into the notorious Ice Court (a military stronghold that has never been breached). Retrieve a hostage (who could unleash magical havoc on the world). Survive long enough to collect his reward (and spend it). Kaz needs a crew desperate enough to take on this suicide mission and dangerous enough to get the job done – and he knows exactly who: six of the deadliest outcasts the city has to offer. Together, they just might be unstoppable – if they don’t kill each other first.

Omg omg omg omg omg omg omg omg omg omg omg what on this earth did I get myself into. Honestly I don’t know why there even is this spoiler-free section because I assume most of you have read this book. I’d like to take a moment to thank those of you who basically screamed at me to read this book. You can also expect my funeral quite soon because I am DECEASED!! The saying goes “No mourners, no funerals” so I guess there will be a funeral and ya’ll are probably laughing at me, not mourning… (that was my subtle yet horrible attempt at a joke) OMG THIS BOOK DESTROYED ME AND I AM OFFICIALLY DEAD. Is it possible to rate a book 10/10 stars?? Or more?? Because WOWOWOW this book deserves it. You should’ve seen me fly through this whilst my eyeballs absorbed EVERY. PRECIOUS. WORD! Okay this part is OVER now, please go and read if you haven’t (you probably have)…

I don’t know if you knew but I was scared going into this book just because I didn’t like Wonder Woman Warbringer but boy did I know what I was getting myself into? Not. a. freaking. clue. Can we just take a minute to discuss the absolute genius that this book is. Honestly the plot was A+++++++++. It was so well done. Plus the writing was SO great and I could follow so easily. This book man!! It’s so clever and I just can’t.
So Jesper and Waylan, I ship them. I knew from there very first conversation that something was going to happen and boy am I glad! This is gonna be such a good ship. I can just feel it. Also, I really like Jesper – he’s that comic relief and his abilities are awesome and I really love him.
At first I really didn’t like Matthias. I didn’t like how horribly he treated Nina when there was clearly something he’d missed. Also Nina is literally awesome. Badass, food-lover and doesn’t care what others think of her. Again, awesome?! Anyways, I did however like him more toward the end. Now I ship and really like them together.
So the actual heist is just completely epic and I was just eating it up with a fork. It was action-packed and most of the time I didn’t know their plan but I LOVED IT SO MUCH!! There were so many scenes that I was just not breathing because omg the anticipation.
I AM OBSESSED WITH KAZ AND INEJ! These two together are just magic and I. love. it. so. much!!!!! Kaz is a dark demon (and also genius with a tragic back story and just honestly AMAZING) but honestly is too precious for this world and I will protect him. Inej is just badass and I honestly love the Wraith. Okay the chemistry between these two is on fire and will probably explode. I SHIP THEM SO HARD that it’s not even funny. Kaz knows but he can’t admit and ahhhhhhh!! The times I just screamed are just uncountable. They give me life and a reason I still exist and there hasn’t even been a kiss. WHAT???!!!! Leigh is literally a genius. Honestly. Can you tell how much I love them?
So, amazing book and I would like to meet my precious crow family. Honestly Crooked Kingdom will destroy me and I AM SCARED, man! I’ve already started #prayforruby so please use it.
