I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. The narrators did a fantastic job bringing the story and their characters to life. I easily fell into the world and not just the first time, but every time I had to pause and then pick it is back up later. The story is enthralling and absolutely enjoyable for anyone. It has a lot of action and a little magic. The concept reminds me of Ocean's 11 but with magic and violence. Leigh Bardugo does a fantastic job of bringing these characters together to pull of a heist and the development of the story and characters was well done. I also really enjoyed how she tied in their backstories and how everything just clicked together. I recommend this to anyone, especially those looking for a good kick butt book featuring a seemingly impossible heist and some of the best characters around.

First, let me say that I loved Therese Plummer and honestly if it wasn't for her narration I wouldn't have kept going. As far as the story goes, I think it had a lot of potential. I had high expectations and they just weren't met. I knew it was a series but there wasn't a lot that happened throughout as far as action and the story didn't really go anywhere. Most of what happened was expected, there really want much surprise which was ok. From the description I had just expected a lot more. I thought we would hear more about the team and see them on excursions or develop in some way and they just seemed kind of flat. I enjoyed them for the most part, but a little undeveloped. I guess my feelings are all over the place since it took me so long to finish this book. It was ok but not a favorite. I will read the next book though.
