Review

Six of Crows is the first Leigh Berdugo book that I inhaled and I will forever be a fan. This is one of the books I will always recommend to people, even if they don’t usually read fantasy because IT’S THAT GOOD.

My favorite thing in the whole book is the main characters, yes, character-S, because there are 6 main bad-ass characters and my favorite one was whoever the chapter was about because they’re all simply amazing. Usually, I would think that a large cast and a complicated plot would not be a good idea, but I fell in love with every single one of them. This group of people with different backgrounds and reasons for wanting to participate in the heist become a loving, fucked up family that I desperately want to be a part of.

“A gambler, a convict, a wayward son, a lost Grisha, a Suli girl who had become a killer, a boy from the Barrel who had become something worse.”

There is some magic but not the same type (or amount) we find in the Grisha series. Of all six characters, only one has a specific ability so magic doesn’t play a big role in the story.  Of course, there is also love, but the romantic moments are so brief and intense that it feels natural and in my case, makes you want to reread the romantic lines a couple of times to savor that peaceful moment amidst chaos.

“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.”  #teamkinej

There is an insane amount of action, the heist is spectacular and well-though-out; the author did an incredible job doing her research and HOLY PLOT TWISTS. Finally, I would like to add that if this book wasn’t already everything you need and more, it also explores themes such as racism, disability, and lgbtq.

I really think people should blindly take my word for it and simply read Six of Crows NOW.

“This isn’t a job for trained soldiers and spies. It’s a job for thugs and thieves.”
