Today I am reviewing Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo! I have been reading a lot of her books recently and really love them! I actually listened to the audiobook for this story, I haven’t done that in a while and I really enjoyed it with this book!
Also, I am trying a new type of review for this book so I hope you all enjoy that as well! Without further ado, here we go!
Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price—and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can’t pull it off alone. . . .
A convict with a thirst for revenge
A sharpshooter who can’t walk away from a wager
A runaway with a privileged past
A spy known as the Wraith
A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums
A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes
Kaz’s crew is the only thing that might stand between the world and destruction—if they don’t kill each other first.
I really enjoyed the overall plot of this book. I am not usually a big fan of books about mysteries or heists but Leigh Bardugo kept me hooked the entire time! While I was a bit confused when the story switched from past to present, since there are no clear transitions for that, I overall really liked listening to all the different characters, their pasts, and their thoughts and feelings.
I was obsessed with all the characters in this book. Kaz, Inej, Nina, Matthias, Wylan, and Jesper stole my heart! I literally shipped all of them, especially Nina and Matthias. I also really enjoyed their character development throughout this book. Leigh Bardugo has a gift for writing really complex characters. In Shadow & Bone, it was the Darkling, in Six of Crows, its Kaz Brekker. I never know quite what to think about him, but I love that he always keeps me on my toes.
Overall, I thought this book was really good, with twists and turns that leave you breathless and desperate for more! I’m not usually a fan of multiple perspectives (and there were a lot in here) but I was ok with it in this book!
I give this book
See you all next time!
I hope you all liked this new type of blog post! Please leave comments or send me messages with your feedback!
