As mentioned in the Six of Crows review, I was glad that I had Crooked Kingdom waiting for immediate pick up. The story picks up immediately where Six of Crows left off and the flow of the story was not interrupted even with a year between original release.

The storyline continued to move forward, without having an awkward rebuilding. As expected, Crooked Kingdom followed the same format, revealing more about each character, their thoughts and desires, as well as making them more realistic, by revealing so much more about their pasts.

Independently, the book is great on its own merits, and it is difficult for me to talk about it without how it progressed the Six of Crows story. I wouldn’t recommend reading the books out of order as there are very important plot pieces in Six of Crows that relate to Crooked Kingdom.

As much as I hated to have the series end, I enjoyed every line.

Description from GoodReads.

When you can't beat the odds, change the game.

Kaz Brekker and his crew have just pulled off a heist so daring even they didn't think they'd survive. But instead of divvying up a fat reward, they're right back to fighting for their lives. Double-crossed and badly weakened, the crew is low on resources, allies, and hope. As powerful forces from around the world descend on Ketterdam to root out the secrets of the dangerous drug known as jurda parem, old rivals and new enemies emerge to challenge Kaz's cunning and test the team's fragile loyalties. A war will be waged on the city's dark and twisting streets―a battle for revenge and redemption that will decide the fate of the Grisha world.
