Kaz is an unofficial leader of a criminals gang in Kerch, a talented thief, raised on the streets and learned the art of thievery, lies, earning money and surviving on his own. When a wealthy merchant approaches him with an offer, Kaz sees it as an opportunity to earn a lot of money that would help him to punish the man who’s responsible for his brother’s death. But, Kaz is no fool, despite how appealing the offer looks, he understands how dangerous and impossible the mission is. He teams up with the city’s most dangerous and skilled people: a brilliant spy Inej, Nina a Grisha from Ravka, Jasper the Sharpshooter, former Drüskelle Matthias and Wylan the merchant’s son, to break into the most secure place in Fjerda; the Ice Court and save Bo-Yul Bayur, the man who can either save or ruin the world. But Kaz better than anybody knows; he can’t trust no one and no matter how perfectly clever his plan is, there’s always a place for a crucial mistake.
I’m so impressed! I was looking for an epic fantasy series to read. OMG, Six of Crows was amazing! Dark, mysterious, magical, blood-chilling, exciting, romantic, remarkable… I ran out of words. I literally forgot to breathe at the last 100 pages! It’s so difficult for me to write a review of a book I really love, because as I begin the only thing I can think of is iloveitiloveitiloveitomgiloveitiloveitomg! I’m so happy there’s a second book, I was almost crying when I turned the last pages, didn’t want it to end.
Leigh Bardugo did a splendid job with the characters, I can’t even name a favorite, love them all! I loved how the author opened curtains to the character’s past and gave a chance to learn about everyone. I enjoyed the multiple narratives, which doesn’t happen a lot and usually, there’re some more interesting than the others. I loved how different they all were and how they struggled with their pasts and demons, and still were so focused on the mission and were killing fierce!
The action was ruthless. It seriously kept me glued to the book for 24h. And when I finished, I wished to go back in time just to read it for the first time again.
