    Summary

    Kaz Brekker is the self-appointed King of the Barrel, and it’s good to be King. With his ill-gotten gains from the Van Eck job he’s doubled the size of the Crow Club, and his exclusive new gambling parlor in The Lid is two weeks from opening. But when a series of deadly fires strike in the heart of The Lid’s entertainment district, essentially wiping out half his competitors, Kaz finds himself implicated. Now he has the Stadwatch and half the gangs in Ketterdam after him. Can Kaz prove his innocence and find the culprit before his latest venture goes up in smoke?

    Summary

    Out of all of Inej’s childhood memories, one was the most precious to her. It had been what she’d held to her chest during her awful year in the Menagerie, as if she could pretend that this wasn’t really happening.

    Summary

    It had been four months since Inej's last visit. Four months since she'd pulled into berth twenty-two with her black ship and her wily crew and her boatful of young women ready to come home to their parents and live their lives the way Inej hadn't. Four months since she'd stood at the end of the dock, silhouetted against the Ketterdam skyline, arms outstretched as though she were moments away from taking flight.

    — or —

    It's been four months since Inej Ghafa has set foot in Ketterdam, and Kaz Brekker is more restless than ever.
