Book Summary

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.

Media Reviews

"Starred Review. This has all the right elements to keep readers enthralled: a cunning leader with a plan for every occasion, nigh-impossible odds, an entertainingly combative team of skilled misfits, a twisty plot, and a nerve-wracking cliffhanger." - Publishers Weekly

"Starred Review. Cracking page-turner with a multiethnic band of misfits with differing sexual orientations who satisfyingly, believably jell into a family. Fantasy. 14 & up." - Kirkus

"While the unresolved ending may frustrate some teens, the promise of a sequel will give them hope that this unsettling, captivating, magical journey will continue." - School Library Journal

"The whirlwind pace, along with some witty banter, burgeoning romance, and high-stakes action, makes this series opener a surefire crowd-pleaser." - Booklist

AMAZING
I found this book through friends and I fell in love with it. It has adventure and a bit of love on the side. Leigh Bardugo goes into backstories that are detailed and reveal more about the character. Everyone has a unique trait that makes you love them. Kaz, Inej, Wylan, Matthias, Jesper and Nina are possibly some of my favourite characters through every book I have read. Their plan meets lots of twist and somehow they overcome them all. The ending brings a new disaster that leads onto the second book which is equally as good. I would 10000/10 recommend reading.

Six of Crows
Honestly, this is a really good book, it's one of my favourites, Leigh Bardugo is a phenomenal writer. The first 100 pages or so, may be a little hard to get through, because of the world building, however if you read the Shadow and Bone trilogy, you may not experience this.

It kept me hooked with many plot twists and often left my jaw open. The characters are so diverse and I love them so much!
