This is an exciting adventure book about a thieving crew that sets out to achieve an impossible task. First, the crew leader needs to get himself a crew (a hard task when most people hate him). Then he has to break into the Ice Court (an unbreachable base). And lastly, he has to bring home a person worth more dead than alive. All of this he has to do faster than any other crew that is being sent to get the same hostage. This fantastical book is a good break from homework and other repetitive activities. There isn't anything in particular about the book that makes it AMAZING, but it has a well-developed plot and is well written. If you're looking for a novel to just chill out with, this is the perfect fit for you.
