I am a huge fan of Leigh Bardugo. Her original Grisha Trilogy, which started with the amazing Shadow and Bone, was beautiful, unique, and action-packed until the last page of the last book. Going into SIX OF CROWS, her newest novel set in the Grisha-verse, I’ll admit that I had really high expectations, and that usually isn’t a good thing.
I was in no way disappointed by Six of Crows. It started with a bang that immediately grabbed my attention and pulled me back into a universe that I’ve loved for years. They story was fast-paced throughout the entire book, with an ending that was so well thought out and intense that I didn’t realize I was on the last page until I tried to read more and there wasn’t more!
Bardugo has always done an amazing job of writing characters that feel real in that they aren’t perfect, they have good and bad sides. She really delivered again with Six of Crows. With each chapter the point-of-view changes to a different character, so I was able to really see into the minds of each of the main characters. It made me fall in love with all of them, despite their flaws. Each character was unique and offered up their own set of qualities, a testament to Bardugo’s writing abilities.
I absolutely cannot wait for the sequel to SIX OF CROWS. This book was so intense and enthralling, I couldn’t put it down and I’m dying for more of the story. I have no doubts about Leigh Bardugo’s ability to continue delivering amazing stories. I definitely will rank Six of Crows as one of the best books of 2015!
