Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

Have you read Six of Crows? And have you watched Shadow and Bone season 1?

I haven’t watched the show yet but I’m hoping to watch it this month InshaAllah. I’ve heard a lot of good reviews on it and since it involves my Kaz and the yummy Darkling, I can’t wait!

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.

An entirely different book by @lbardugo I enjoyed reading this though I still prefer Shadow and Bone series. Six of Crows is set in the Grisha world as well, and we see new places here. Totally new characters as well, we are introduced to Kaz Brekker who is the leader of the most popular gang in the Ravkan city of Ketterdam. After destroying a rival group, he is kidnapped by Jan van Eck who enlists him for a seemingly impossible quest in exchange for an irresistible sum of thirty million kruge. The task is quite difficult, and he has to hire 5 others who have different abilities ranging from Heartrender, Druskelle, and his fellow Dregs in order to achieve the heist.

The whole book is written in third POV, the author managing to switch the perspectives at the start of each chapter. It switches between the members of the gang, giving an insight on their lives.

The writing style is top notch, a great balance between humour and the matters at hand. Even though some chapters can be sophisticated, it’s still easy to understand. Very entertaining, and intriguing.
