The Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo #TuesdayBookBlog

23437156
My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars. Or maybe 6 of 5 Stars. Or . . .

A short time ago, I reviewed Leigh Bardugo’s Grisha Trilogy, giving all three books five stars. I loved the series so much, I couldn’t wait to read her next one, and immediately downloaded Six of Crows. After oohing and aaahing over the stunning cover design (I may have mentioned once or twice how much I love cover art), I dove straight into the tale.

As you can read on the cover, the book is about “six dangerous outcasts, and one impossible heist.” Those of you who love stories about gangs of less than upstanding citizens, sting operations, and movies like Ocean’s Eleven, should be pulled in by those words alone. Me, I’m not usually drawn to those particular topics, but knowing the book was set in the same world as the Grisha trilogy, I was hooked, anyway–and I was not disappointed!

The antihero, and leader of this gang of six, Kaz Brekker, pulls you into his world and forces you to care about him, whether you want to or not. He’s a wonderfully odd character, fully developed, incredibly complicated, and many-faceted. I loved him, and pretty much his entire gang of misfits.

And then there’s the “impossible heist.” If you think you’ve read enough about those types of things, think again. I can almost guarantee this one will have you hooked from the get-go, worrying who will survive the ordeal, and who won’t.

My only complaint about the book is that I raced through it in two days, and then was left dying to get my hands on the next in the series, the equally beautifully clad Crooked Kingdom, due out September 27.

If you haven’t read The Grisha Trilogy yet, I say start with that, so you are thoroughly steeped in the magic of the world, and then immediately grab Six of Crows. If you hurry, you can finish all four by the time Crooked Kingdom arrives!
