Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
*6 out of 6 crows would recommend*
First let me just say how amazing Leigh Bardugo is. Not only is she an incredible author who wrote one of my favourite series, the Grisha Trilogy, which had me reeling at every page and constantly shifting from hating to loving each and every character, but she is also one of the most kind, funny and amazing people EVER!
Here I am with her in heaven….lets take a moment of silence to fangirl….
Now she has released a new book that takes place in the Grisha universe but with a whole new cast of characters!! I managed to get my hands on a ARC by borrowing my friends copy with lots of begging and tearful pleas.
What is there to say, it was spectacular of course.
WHAT’S IT ABOUT?:
Six of Crows is the story of a group of six outcasts who come together to undertake a dangerous heist with their lives and the fate of the world in the balance. In the same breathtaking universe of the Grisha we get to explore the dark criminal underground of Ketterdam, a city of international trade that also plays host to a slew of gangs, gambling dens and any other dark desires you can think of. From this city we meet our outcasts as they must come together as a team to get the job done or die trying (if they don’t kill each other first). Filled with a colourful cast of characters, action to spare, epic battles, the thrill of an impossible heist and some laugh out loud humour Six of Crows will leave you craving for more.
WHAT I LOVED:
ALL OF IT!!! But seriously it was a spectacular book. It’s like Oceans Eleven meets the Breakfast Club but with more action and Grisha!!
- dark and intense setting and story
- heist premise
- expanded view of the Grisha universe
- diverse characters and well developed
- lots of action (plus Grisha awesomeness YAY!)
- I legitimately loved every single character
- THE WRAITH (cinnamon roll too pure for this world)
- reference to St. Alina
- really hilarious character interactions and one liners
- I ship every single couple that develops
- THAT ENDING!!!
So whether you are a fan of the Grisha series or just in search of your next great read, do yourself a favour and pick up this bad boy when it comes out Sept. 29th, you won’t regret it! Also just look at how beautiful the hardcover is here !!! ❤
