Over at Kirkus: Six of Crows and Other Heist Novels

It’s Friday and we are over at Kirkus!

Today it’s Thea’s turn with a list inspired by her recent devouring of Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo.

Six of Crows

It’s a heist novel and an assembling the team novel, aka two of my favorite storylines combined. To share the love, we put up a list of our very favorite SFF heist novels over at Kirkus. Check it out!

    Another series you might want to try in the ‘heist’ vein is The Palace Job by Patrick Weekes (followed by The Prophecy Con and The Paladin Caper).

    The description for the first is:
    Loch is seeking revenge.

    It would help if she wasn’t in jail.

    The plan: to steal a priceless elven manuscript that once belonged to her family, but now is in the hands of the most powerful man in the Republic. To do so Loch—former soldier, former prisoner, current fugitive—must assemble a crack team of magical misfits that includes a cynical illusionist, a shapeshifting unicorn, a repentant death priestess, a talking magical warhammer, and a lad with seemingly no skills to help her break into the floating fortress of Heaven’s Spire and the vault that holds her family’s treasure—all while eluding the unrelenting pursuit of Justicar Pyvic, whose only mission is to see the law upheld.

    What could possibly go wrong?
