Kaz Brekker and his crew, having just finished raiding the Ice Court, thought they were coming back to the prize of a life time, but when they realize they got swindled out of their money, its up to Kaz and his crew to get their money, and get back at the men that ruined every one of their lives. Leigh Bardugo brings you back into the Barrel, as flawlessly as if we never left.
Kaz and his misfit band of miscreants have to lay low as they uncover a black hole of secrets that are keeping them from their fortunes, as well as their futures. As we watch the spectacle of the barrel unfold infront of us we also get a side show of who loves who, without it being throwin in our face as a sappy love story.The Jesper and Waylen romance is so subtle at that first you can't even tell its going on, it slips up on you so skillfully that you forget that you didn't even like waylen before this book started. The Kas and Inej romance is something that I sensed from the first book, but it was small a gradual and by the end you're wanting so much more than she gave you, honestly I want another book just about the two of them!!
When I found out that Leigh Bardugo wrote another series completely on the Grisha I was crazy stoked, it meant that I didn't have to leave the beautifully dangerous environment of the Barrel. I cannot wait to go back soon to this beautiful series. This book is a defiant must read!
