Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Published by Henry Holt and Company in September 2015.

"Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price—and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can't pull it off alone...

A convict with a thirst for revenge.

A sharpshooter who can't walk away from a wager.

A runaway with a privileged past.

A spy known as the Wraith.

A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums.

A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes.

Kaz's crew are the only ones who might stand between the world and destruction—if they don't kill each other first." -- From Goodreads

Will you like it?
If you like fantasy, then you will love this book.  The plot is wonderful: Oceans Eleven combined with magic.  LOVE.  The fantasy elements are almost steampunk in nature- tanks side by side with horses, swords side by side with guns, magic side by side with science.  The characters are built over the entire novel, layer by layer.  Overall, if you love fantasy, steampunk elements, and wonderfully imperfect characters, this book is for you.

Disclosure: I borrowed a copy of this book from my local library.
