I am a bit behind the rush to read this one, but I am glad I finally got it. It lived up to the comparisons and description, and it was the right amount of fantasy elements and complex characters (built well with backstories) and adventure. I can see girls and boys liking this one. It has violence, but it is necessary to the story and nothing too gruesome that teens cannot handle it. Kaz gathers a team of criminals to attempt an impossible prison break for a sum of money they can only dream of...totally worth the read. Eagerly anticipating book 2! This book is definitely for a higher level reader of YA because of all the stories and things going on at once.
