I already mentioned my love for the crows and I am not exaggerating when I say that Crooked Kingdom will break your heart and you will be grateful for it.
The review might contain mild spoilers.
Kaz and his crew of outcasts have just pulled off the heist of their lives, but instead of enjoying the success of their impossible mission, they are back to fighting for their lives.
The crew was double-crossed, low on resources and have little to no hope, but as power figures from around the world arrive to Ketterdam to uncover the secrets of jurda parem, old rivals and new enemies challenge Kaz and the crows.
What I liked about the book: The ending of Six of Crows was absolutely thrilling and I couldn’t wait to pick up Crooked Kingdom which was intense and devastating in all the best ways. I loved the character development, the plot, the surprises, the guest appearances, the backstories and everything you could think of about the book.
What I didn’t like about the book: Oof, there is one particular heartbreaking moment which devastated me but I went in expecting heartbreak, yet it would have been good if that was avoided, but alas – wishful thinking, and the book wouldn’t be the same if it wasn’t for that moment, of course.
A quote: “I would have come for you. And if I couldn’t walk, I’d crawl to you, and no matter how broken we were, we’d fight our way out together-knives drawn, pistols blazing. Because that’s what we do. We never stop fighting.”
My rating: 5/5 stars.
Highly, highly recommend the Six of Crows books, they are an absolute joy.
