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.
