kareila: hidden between stacks of books (books)

While I was waiting for my library hold on the sequel to Shadow and Bone, I got my hands on this, Bardugo's newest book, the first of a new series in the same world, maybe five years later? So, minor spoilers for the eventual outcome of those events, plus a cliffhanger for a book that hasn't been published yet. Sigh.

However, I enjoyed it even more than Shadow and Bone, although I think it probably still works better to read that first, as this one seems to piggyback off the worldbuilding done in that book. Most importantly: it reminds me a LOT of The Lies of Locke Lamora, so if you loved that, I would definitely recommend this. Both tell the story of a gang of quirky, talented thieves trying to pull off an impossible heist in a pre-industrial setting, with a bit of mafia-flavored violence thrown in to keep things gritty.
