    I was scared to start

    . The hype surrounding it has been HUGE, the blurb sounded intriguing, I've been eagerly anticipating it, and I liked but didn't love

    . Honestly, though? I needn't have worried.

    has been called fantasy-lite, but there is absolutely nothing about

    that warrants such a label. It's a sweeping epic tale with six main characters, five perspectives, complex and detailed world-building that is seamlessly integrated into the story, flashbacks to the characters' histories, and a wonderful blend of darkness, magic, action, humour and romance.

    In the hands of a less skilled author, this could have been a mess. But Bardugo crafts each of her characters with love and sensitivity, allowing them to be extremely badass, wicked sometimes, and

    .

    It's set in the same Grisha universe as her other books (this time in an alternate Netherlands instead of Russia), but it's much darker and more

    . These characters are thieves, convicts and runaways. Street gangs compete for territory and power. The author takes all these dark "real world" factors and enthuses them with the supernatural.

    The comparisons to

    are spot on. The plot is essentially about an action-packed, fast-paced heist. They must first break into a heavily-guarded prison and smuggle a convict out and then, with his help, they will attempt to break into the Ice Court - a place that has never been breached - all to get their hands on a LOT of money. But all these characters have their own personal agendas too (and because of the third person narrative we don't always know what they are).

    As I mentioned, the characters are so so good. We have the leader - Kaz - who is an intimidating criminal prodigy with a secret past. We have the mixture of drama and humour offered by Jesper and Wylan. And there's the totally badass Inej:

    . It allows us to view all these characters equally and also allows us to be constantly surprised.

    I want to be clear that the romance never takes over the story; it feels natural and welcome when it surfaces, which isn't too often. In fact, I'd say Bardugo is a bit of a tease for most of the novel and I found myself shipping Matthias and Nina so hard. Gah:

    Dark, action-packed, beautifully-written, and yes, even sexy. When can I get the next book?

    This is the type of book that will blow you away with its words. IT WAS PHENOMENAL!!!!

    SO MUCH FUN WITH THIS BOOK. FANTASTIC CAST OF CHARACTERS! HERE'S MY FULL BOOKTALK/REVIEW

  • Jesse (JesseTheReader)

    THIS BOOK. I'm trying not to add to the hype pool right now, but like THIS BOOK. IT BLEW ME AWAY. It was unexpectedly brilliant! I WANNA BE IN THE SIX OF CROWS SQUAD.

  • Jesse (JesseTheReader)

    originally read this last year, but decided to re-read it before six of crows! i'm so happy i made that decision. i had forgotten how rich this story is in detail. from the characters, to the world, to the plot, everything is built up so beautifully. the ending still gave me chills and i need crooked kingdom right. now.

    My mind is spinning. I tend to prefer simplicity in books. I hate a ridiculously complicated plot. I hate unnecessary characters. For the Young Adult genre, this book can best be described as

    , because. It. Is. Huge. It is complicated. It's like

    for the YA fantasy crowd in the very best of ways.

    There are 6 main characters. Typically, that's 4 more than I'd like. The book's downfall is also what makes it great, and it's why I docked a star. It's epic. Perhaps

    . Too complicated books tend to confuse me and let's face it, a large cast with different POVs tend to make it extremely confusing for the reader - and it is, to an extent, true in this book. It is nonstop action with nary a moment to breathe. There is a cast of characters in the beginning, and by god, you'll need it. Sometimes I felt like I was memorizing things for a test.

    But the good is that the characters are all bad-ass. The packleader is an anti-hero, which, in my opinion, is the best kind of character.

    I like them dirty. And the book moves at a breakneck speed that'll guarantee the reader's interest.

    There's magic - naturally. But a different kind of magic than such was found in the

    . The characters are well-written, they're a ragtag band of misfits, and not exactly friends, but all are united for a common mission, and most importantly, they each have a purpose. There are no redundant, extraneous characters, but each character is doing this for their own reason.

    The female characters are kick-ass.

    They don't try too hard to be rebels to be bad-ass, to deny their own nature to prove they can play with the boys, they're just themselves...that's confusing, I know, but I can't describe it any other way.

    There is romance, but so little of it, and what little there is felt natural and unobtrusive. A blossoming from grudging tolerance to like, to possibly something more. But I consider this a great book, because the romance

    HALLE-FREAKING-LUJAH! Survival + rationality > romance!!!!!! *wipes away tear* I never thought I'd see the day.

    THIS WAS SO GREAT! I absolutely love the world building--there's a cool magic system and lots of different cities/cultures that have really fascinating dynamics. The ensemble cast of characters is also fantastic! They all have interesting backstories and distinct personalities. Writing is great, story is awesome, pacing on point. It wasn't quite PERFECT, but it was pretty freaking close, and I can't wait for the sequel!
