A sharpshooter who can’t walk away from a wager

A runaway with a privileged past

A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums

A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes

Review

I didn’t read the Grisha Trilogy before Six of Crows, mostly because I didn’t knew I should have read it first and I regretted not reading it but I couldn’t put Six of Crows down not even for a second so I didn’t wait for the Grisha Trilogy to arrive (yes, I ordered it while I was 50 pages in SoC), so there were some parts about the Grisha universe that I found confusing which was entirely my fault. Anyway, I did eventually understand those details, probably by the 40%-50% mark.

Even though I struggled with some world details, I loved these characters! Their stories, their voices, their thoughts and needs and wants… EVERYTHING. At first I was a little worried about the multi POVs however every character had a very distinct voice and the change of perspectives just flowed seamless. Leigh Bardugo is a queen when it comes to writing a story with multi POVs, honestly I’m very impressed with how she managed to make every character stand out. I was hooked from the first POV!

Six of Crows is addictive, it got to the point that I had dreams about the plot, the characters and their world. The plot is unique with lots of secrets, corruption, chess moves, the characters are dark, captivating, complex and lovable, with rich backstories that will make you root for this crew of criminals. Six of Crows is an epic action-packed story with adventure, criminals, romance and magic. The hype is real! Highly recommended.

No mourners, no funerals.

  1. I read this and hadn’t read the Grisha trilogy either. I didn’t realize they were so tightly connected. It didn’t bother me like it did you, though. I’m glad you still adored it, though. Great review!
