“The heart is an arrow. It demands aim to land true.” Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
This novel is exquisite! I never thought I’d be so excited about a book but this novel is off the charts. It is action packed and has such a great character development. Six of Crows is the spin off duology of The Grisha Series but can most definitely be read on it’s own.
Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price—and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can’t pull it off alone. . . .
A convict with a thirst for revenge
A sharpshooter who can’t walk away from a wager
A runaway with a privileged past
A spy known as the Wraith
A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums
A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes
Kaz’s crew is the only thing that might stand between the world and destruction—if they don’t kill each other first.
Leigh Bardugo did such an amazing job with her story telling. Not only did she give us a great plot line, but she made all her characters stand out. These are no ordinary people. They each have their own backstory and you see them grow so much throughout the book that you can do nothing but fall for all of ’em. Also, these are people who for the most part start out disliking each-other and need to learn to make the best of their situation. Some just have nowhere else to fall back to and keep fighting for their future to be brighter. On top of this, we have a great plot that only thickens at every step you see them take. We have talented men and women who need to learn to unite in order to achieve their ultimate goal.
If you find yourself liking action and adventure, be sure to give this book a read. This book is centered on a heist and all actions, all decisions, revolve around their mission. As a hopeless romantic myself I found myself really surprised that even though there is some romance, it isn’t the main topic of the novel. Leigh Bardugo made such a good plot that she had me hooked from the first three pages.
