“She commanded him to open the door, and when he did, she ordered him to cut the thumb from his hand. We only know how it all happened because a kitchen boy was present. The Grisha girl left him untouched, but he claims Hoede carved away his own thumb, smiling all the while.”
It just occurred to me that I did not share an excerpt for this meme from Leigh Bardugo’s Six of Crows when I was reading it. This is a real shame because I adore this book. It features fantastic characters and a heist that is sure to keep you on your toes. Cover linked to Goodreads.
From my review:
“For Kaz Brekker, no job is too big, for the right price. As a member of the gang called the Dregs, Kaz assembles and leads the best team to commit less-than-savory jobs. When Kaz is approached by a powerful man to break into the well-guarded Ice Court and rescue a scientist with a dangerous formula that has the potential to start a war, Kaz must find just the right partners to pull off the ambitious heist. The odds are stacked against him and with a team full of people with questionable pasts, this job may not just be impossible, it may be their last.” Find my full review here.
