Title: Six of Crows
Author: Leigh Bardugo
Summary: A thief that can outsmart anyone and is always one step ahead of his enemies. The Wraith, a mysterious spy with a painful past who never slips up. A powerful Heartrender who uses her powers to survive, and has used her status to betray. A convict with a moral code, and a deep hatred for one of their own. A mysterious runaway whose status on the team is uncertain. A sharpshooter with a secret, and who can never walk away from a bet. Six unlikely friends stuck together by even more unlikely circumstances, and whose adventures have even more unlikely conclusions.
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo by is a spectacular fantasy novel set in an intriguing new universe. Kaz, a mysterious thief who always knows more than he lets on, brings together six individuals for the biggest most dangerous job in the world, which is dwarfed by the even larger reward. The job? Breaking into the fabled Ice Courts to free a man who may already be dead. An impossible task. A job that holds the fate of the world in its hands.
We follow the heroes through a multi-perspective 480 page novel that constantly leaves you wanting for more, and always delivers. The novel is rewarding and exiting, the adventures leaving your heart racing, and the twists leaving you reeling. This found family novel both melts your heart and breaks your heart; but never fear, there’s a second book that you’re going to want to check out immediately after finishing. My only criticism is that it isn’t longer.
