Game of Thrones meets Ocean's Eleven in this fantasy epic from the number 1 NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of SHADOW AND BONE, SIEGE AND STORM and RUIN AND RISING, Leigh Bardugo.
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.
Six dangerous outcasts. One impossible heist. Kaz's crew is the only thing that might stand between the world and destruction - if they don't kill each other first.
Leigh Bardugo's writing has captivated readers since SHADOW AND BONE was published in 2012. SIX OF CROWS will take Leigh's fans back into the world they know and love. As gripping, sweeping and memorable as The Grisha Trilogy, this is perfect for fans of Laini Taylor, Kristin Cashore and Game of Thrones.
The plot twists were amazing and the heists excellent, but the characters are what really made it for me – The wit, the chemistry, the genius… I loved it all (especially Kaz). I also just love books surrounding anti-heroes.
The diversity and representation is excellent, featuring characters suffering from chronic disability and PTSD as well as of racial minorities and LGBT orientation.
Though I’m still not 100% sure that it’s necessary to read the "Grisha" trilogy before "Six of Crows", it definitely helps in terms of understanding the magic system and overall context. I’m also glad that I listened to the audiobooks of the Grisha trilogy as it definitely helped my mental pronunciations of the various terms that otherwise I would have had no idea. - Melissa (QBD)
There isn't a crime 17 year old Kaz Brekker wouldn't commit for the right price. Set in a world of the all powerful Grisha, Leigh Bardugo's Six of Crows follows the stories of six criminal masterminds while they take on an impossible heist. I loved this book! Its rich plot, setting and characters took me to a completely different and exciting world and left me wanting more! - Portia (QBD)
Six of Crows
Set in the same world as the Grisha trilogy, Six of Crows follow six misfit criminals and their attempt to pull off an impossible heist. I wasn't expecting to love this one as much as I did. The characters, plot and world-building were all done exceptionally well and I can't wait to read the sequel coming out later this year. Highly recommend.- Tamara
