Great book! ( )

This book is amazing. I usually love stories with intense world building and this book delivers. There is no stone unturned, blade of grass written in without reason. It is so distinctly different and beautiful at the same time. Not only does this story takes us through the harsh life in the barrel but it brings us the heist story with a wonderful twist. This book is so interesting and I definitely recommend it to everyone. ( )

I LOVED IT SO MUCH YOU CANNOT EVEN IMAGINE!!!!!!

Or maybe you can, if you've read this book.

This book, is by far, one of the best books I have ever had the opportunity to read, and I will for sure reread this again many times to come.

I had seen this book a lot on my dashboard, and in a lot of youtube videos, and I thought, maybe I should read this, see what the craze is all about.

And can I just say, all the hype and craze surrounding it is well deserved.

So, I went into this book expecting a nice heist novel with lots of twists and turns, and lots of secrets kept from other people; basically, I was expecting a story to rival the Ocean's movies, and that's what I got!

I loved the differing perspectives in this book, as they gave you a window into all of the characters minds(not all, but you know, most of them), and the way all those perspectives were so unreliable......I mean you only knew what you were being told.....all further steps of the plan, their own motives(personal ones), you know nothing.......which is exactly what I wanted!

My absolute favourite characters were Kaz and Inej, and I was totally shipping them as soon as I read the scene in the docks(you know, the one where he saves her). Kaz's image of being unbeatable and untouchable is nicely shattered by his perspective, which made me want to wrap him up and hug him and get Inej to give him lots of hugs and kisses........and vice versa with Inej.

That ending was horrible, but really well executed, and I'm very eager to start the next ones.

I loved this book a lot, and I recommend it to anyone who likes heists, some romance, funny characters, doesn't mind a bit(quite some actually) of gore(he pulled the eyeball out?!?!?!?!) and has seen and liked any of the Ocean's' movies! ( )

This was another one of my series-sampling audio listens, to see if I might want to pursue it in print someday. Since starting this process this year, this is the first audiobook where it’s a little painful to cut myself off after the first book in the series. This is a most definite “YES” as far as whether I’ll follow up on it in print someday.

Audio Narration
This audiobook has seven narrators, one for each POV character. Two of them only narrated the beginning and the end, while the other 5 narrated the chapters written from the POV of one of the 5 recurring characters. I have no idea which narrator went with which character, but each of them did a pretty good job. Some distinguished character voices a little better than others. I was partial to the narrators whose characters I enjoyed the most -- Kaz and Inej.

At first I thought it would be kind of nice to have different narrators, but I didn’t really care for the approach after all. Each of the 5 main POV characters were often together in the same scenes, hanging out with the same group of characters. This meant there were 5 different narrators voicing all the same characters in different ways. It was a little jarring, and I might have been more annoyed by it if I hadn’t enjoyed the story so much.

Story
The story focuses on teenagers in a gang in the streets of a city in a fictional world. They agree to a very dangerous heist-type job and the largest portion of the story revolves around preparing for and undertaking that mission with some backstory for the characters interspersed throughout. The end has a pretty big cliff hanger, although the main part of the story that drove the action in this book is more-or-less wrapped up.

I really enjoyed this. It isn’t perfect, but it held my attention completely while I was listening and it had me thinking about it in-between listening sessions. Although the characters are all teenagers, I didn’t really get a young adult vibe while listening to it. Maybe that was partly influenced by the narrators not sounding at all like teenagers to me. It’s a bit full of tropes when I think about it, but I guess it had all the ones that work for me and I thought it was written well.

For example, the main characters are all damaged people with traumatic histories, and although most of them have done terrible things, they all have their own code of honor and sense of right and wrong. It should have been a bit much, maybe felt too melodramatic, but I was pretty attached to the characters. There’s also a lot of pairing off, more than I would normally enjoy in a book. One of the pairings (Nina and Matthias) did make me roll my eyes, but I was surprisingly invested in one of the others (Kaz and Inej). The third kinda/sorta romance (Jesper and Wylan) had very little page time so, even though it had a hint of instalove and a definite lack of development, it didn’t come up often enough to bug me. I didn’t feel like the romances dominated the story, but they do come up quite a bit, especially the first pairing which got on my nerves sometimes.

The world-building felt solid, the magic was interesting, the characters were likeable, and the story held my interest and occasionally dragged me to the edge of my seat. It gets a little dark, especially with the back stories, but I didn’t think it was brutally dark and there are bits of humor in the dialogue that help lighten things up. If I’d read this in print, I likely would have rated it at least 4.5 stars. As an audiobook, it was a solid 4 stars and I’ll very much look forward to revisiting it in print someday. There’s another trilogy written and set prior to this series, so I’ll likely start (or restart) with that since I normally prefer to go in publication order. I never felt like I was missing out on anything by starting with this one, though. ( )

This book has officially become one of my all time favorites. The whole universe in which the story is set is so complex yet so flawlessly presented, I automatically fell in love with it. The characters are deep and surprising. while writing this, I feel as though Leigh has immersed herself in the Grisha world, making it real. overall the book is fast paced, funny and deep, I loved it ( )
