SIX OF CROWS, by Leigh Bardugo

crows

The story: A group of teenage misfits and criminals is hired to kidnap a scientist whose drug could change the way magic is performed by the Grisha–making them almost impossible to stop, but also quickly killing them in the process. But the payout will be high, and luckily, Kaz is a master at criminal proceedings, and at getting and holding together his ragtag group of crooks. But everyone in the group has their own private agendas, and busting Bo Yul-Bayur out of an impenetrable Fjerdan jail may prove to be the ruin of them all.

Mrs. Friend’s opinion:  If you’re patient and willing to be a little lost at the beginning, you’ll do fine with this story–but for best results, first read the author’s Grisha Trilogy (starting with “Shadow and Bone”) series.
