Six of Crows

Six of Crows #1

Reviewed by Melanie on January 22, 2017


I had seen the Six of Crows duology on Facebook a lot and had been looking for it at our local library. Shortly after Christmas, when browsing around Target, I picked up both of the series. I hurried to finish my current read and began.

I loved that the story flowed so flawlessly between the character points of view and that once the story was moving, the action compounded with each chapter. I never felt bored or distracted throughout the book, even when the action was less, the dialogue or setting captured me.

I quickly fell in love with the characters, my favorites being Kaz and Inej. Getting to know each character through their unique perspectives had me invested in their fates early on.

Once I had hit halfway, the book accompanied me every where. I didn’t want to miss an opportunity to read a couple pages, or even a paragraph.

I highly recommend the book, but have Crooked Kingdom close at hand. Once you finish Six of Crows, you’ll be ready for the second immediately.

Description from GoodReads.

Criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker has been offered wealth beyond his wildest dreams. But to claim it, he'll have to pull off a seemingly impossible heist:

Break into the notorious Ice Court
(a military stronghold that has never been breached)

Retrieve a hostage
(who could unleash magical havoc on the world)

Survive long enough to collect his reward
(and spend it)

Kaz needs a crew desperate enough to take on this suicide mission and dangerous enough to get the job done - and he knows exactly who: six of the deadliest outcasts the city has to offer. Together, they just might be unstoppable - if they don't kill each other first.
