I had never heard of this book before I received it for SantaThing recently. It's mostly set in 1900s New York and involves time travel and magic (and time travel magic). It's also YA, which I didn't realize until after I started it.

This book wasn't for me. The characters seemed like a collection of tropes with not much substance underneath. The magic system was vague and confusing. That's not always a bad thing, but didn't work for this book because the whole plot depended on how the the magic system worked. There were some twists towards the end that might have been fun if I was invested in the story, but I wasn't. It might have also been easier to overlook some of its deficiencies if it was tightly paced, but it's almost 500 pages long and slow. On the positive side, the historical setting does seem well researched. ( )

Loved it!! No two words about it. It was a surprising read. Lost of plots, twists and turns, intrigue and nothing short of an adventurous journey. No dull moment at any point, no words wasted, everything fell into to place like an art work.
I don't know if there will be a sequel, since the ending suggests there could be one. I would love to read it though.. ( )

*All of my reviews are as spoiler-free as possible unless states otherwise*

OVERALL: 4.0

UPDATE: Sorry for the trash of a review but what you guys should know is that: 1. great time travel plot 2. I loved the characters 3. this is an underrated gem so you should read it


THE HEIST THE HEIST THE HEIST !!! LET US TALK ABOUT THAT… BECAUSE IT WAS SO MUCH MORE THAN A HEIST AND I LOVED IT !!!

Although book had a slow start and took some time to pick up, I was able to really appreciate it in the end because it was part of the world building. And everything just played out beautifully in the end. I also suddenly understood how the cover is like a time thing.

This might be my favourite time travel book yet. It had what I was looking for in a time travel plot… mix that with the Six of Crows vibes… I was in love by the end.

And I was SO INVESTED in Harte’s character and I just had no idea what was going to happen. The plot does a good job building up the suspense because we already know how everything is suppose to end but then we’re not sure if Esta is going to be successful or not. I am just so happy there was more to the heist plot than the book led be to believe and…. *sigh*… I am satisfied.

The plot intrigued me and Esta was an interesting MC. She’s not so much of a typical female MC because SHE’S A THIEF IF YOU DID NOT ALREADY KNOW. That made her really interesting to me because it puts her in kind of a morally gray position and I feel like I never entirely know what she’s going to do next. Though, she did start to grow like the female MCs we all know and love. I was cheering Harte on from the very first page and I really like his dynamic with Esta
They are both far from perfect people in the beginning of the story but I really liked their character development. They seemed to both grow into their roles in the story and I think there masterfully written to intrigue you. Other than that, I thought that all of the characters were actually flushed out well and played into the story in a beautiful way.

”Who said I was you to be anything but what you are? I like your angles and edges, …I have plenty of my own, you know.”

I really liked how most of everyone’s affinities weren’t outright and plainly said. You kind of had to figure it out along the way and that just added a little something to the story for me. It honestly kind of gives me Six of Crows vibes but then everyone has powers.

And here I was thinking that ime-travelling wasn’t as explored throughout the majority of the book though which made me kind of disappointed but OH BOY WAS I WRONG!!

I really enjoyed this book and I seriously cannot wait to get my hands on the next one once they restock in my bookstore :”)
