    Summary

    All he could think was, this is the first time he’d ever touched her so deliberately. Vision tunneling, he got her onto her back.

    There was a knife poised at his—her heart.

    In the span of a breath, Kaz saw her intention. He saw the knife slide between her ribs, pierce her heart, saw the blood that would follow, the stain on his hands.

    Summary

    She’s really not their child, they promise.
    (If modern media existed in Ketterdam, everyone would tell Kaz and Inej, ‘Sure, Jan.’)
    If only they knew just how impossible it is.

    Summary

    Kaz is prepared to bribe the owners of the other gambling halls not to admit him—he’s prepared to send some of the younger Dregs to beat Jesper to a mild pulp every time he tries to enter the Barrel, if necessary—but he hopes it won’t come to that. If you could beat an addiction out of someone, Jesper would have been cured years ago.

    “What, then? Spit it out.”

    The other man pauses at the window, staring out at the rain, and swallows before finally saying, “Wylan asked me to marry him.”

    Summary

    Reports of the record-breaking deal hit the newsstands two days later, much to the delight of the other Dregs. Kaz had limped down the stairs that morning to find copies of the papers covering the DeKappel sale littering the landing, the Dregs milling about the parlor watching him closely with barely disguised mirth. Perhaps, Kaz considered, he’d made art theft too much his signature. Might be time to lay off.

    OR: Kaz is definitely not going to steal that DeKappel. He is definitely not falling for the Wraith. He is definitely not planning on taking over the Dregs. A lot of things aren't happening, except that they are

    Summary

    "Kaz opened the door, and the sight of her was almost enough to make him forget everything — the pain, the guilt, the turmoil of emotion this day had been. A string of tension snapped, releasing him. She was at the window, dark hair loose to the wind, casually perched on it just like she used to, before everything. The crows she’d taken the time to feed fretted around her, recognizing her careful fingers. A younger one had nestled in her lap, and gently, she petted its ruffled feathers.

    'Pretty' was nowhere near enough. She was every beautiful thing in the world.

    Kaz found the breath he’d lost, and felt a tired smile bloom on his lips."

    ------

    Six months after the events of Crooked Kingdom, Kaz Brekker begins to heal. It starts with a long-owed apology to a friend, and the return of the Wraith in Ketterdam.
