Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from KICKASS GANG OF TEENAGERS I LOVE THIS BOOK. This was something so different and unique from what I've seen most YA novels about. PLUS it's from the Grishaverse. I loved the Grisha Trilogy so when I heard some Grisha's were going to be in this book as well, I hopped right on the train. This book is amazing with it's plotline and writing style. Every page is vibrant and vivid, fast-paced and gripping. Also, what teen doesn't want to read about other badass teens pulling off heists?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I loved it from start to finish! The characters are all endearing and you really become invested in their personal stories. I didn't read the trilogy prior to this book, but I didn't have any difficulties following the plot line. I can't wait to read the next volume.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK I didn't enjoy this book as much as others, perhaps if I was younger (teens) I would enjoy this, but I am used to reading more epic fantasies that have a more in depth exploration into characters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Duology Ever This is my favourite duology ever. I was first hooked to Leigh Bardugo's Grisha world through her trilogy. And then came Six of Crows, and it completely blew me away. Must read!
Date published: 2017-09-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING I completely loved this book even if I didn't read the Grisha's trilogy (but I intend too now). It was so amazing and extraordinary well written, I was not ready for that. I thought at first it was another young adult book with romance and blablabla but I was not ready for that much action and the caracters are so good and lovely in their way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THIS BOOK I can genuinely say that this book sits on my shelf as an all time favourite. I loved the diversity of the characters and the adventure that they go on. It made me laugh and cry and sit on the edge of my seat with every page.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Epic adventure! All in all this was a really fantastically crafted book with one of the most intricate and unique fantasy worlds I've encountered in some time. Leigh Bardugo does a great job of carefully layering mystery and action that drives the plot forward and keeps your hooked until the very end. At times, I found it hard to become attached (let alone relate) to the characters, but as the story unfolded, she managed to endear me to even the most problematic of characters. My only critique of this book is that the many, many complicated titles and descriptors used so early on in the story. Between the names of businesses, gangs, characters, councils and the various race types, I found myself getting a bit confused. I love a well-fleshed out fantasy world but personally, I felt as though she introduced too much, too soon. I was determined to read this series so I persevered well after I normally would have given up on the book. It took a full 150 pages for me to really feel like I had assimilated enough of the vocabulary to understand how it fit into the story versus feeling clumsy. In closing, if you find your initial introduction to this Grisha universe to be a bit confusing, just give it time. Try to find it flattering that the author believed enough in her audience to hit the ground running!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection. Everything in Six of Crows is fantastically crafted. From the Dregs, who I completely adore (with another problematic fave added to my list), to the incredibly detailed world-building (though I expect nothing less after the Grisha trilogy), to the non-stop, action-packed heist story, there's nothing about this that didn't call to me. I'm in love and I need the sequel like yesterday.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, not great This book was not quite what I was looking for. The reviews for this book are great, and it is a good book, but with such unanimous positive ratings, my expectations might have been set unrealistically high. Keep your expectations low and you will not be disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Alright... While this book was not terrible, I do not think it lives up to all of the hype. Part of the reason may be because school made me have to drag out reading this over a whole month, so I will most likely reread this when I have time to see if my opinion changes. I do think you should give it a read if it interests you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heist + Magic = Excellent If you read the Grisha trilogy and found the world itself interesting, but the story a bit lacking, please please PLEASE do yourself a favour and give Six of Crows a try. It's got morally grey (dark, dark grey) characters, an impossible mission, and Grisha magic. But, unlike Bardugo's first trilogy, only a few of the characters we meet are actually Grisha. Most of the characters that this story focuses on are just regular people. Regular, run of the mill, genius criminals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10/10 would recommend If Ocean's Eleven and Game of Thrones had a baby that picked up some of the humor of Percy Jackson and the creepy aesthetic of Neil Gaiman, you might have something that looked almost, but not quite, like this book

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great audiobook This was a great way to re-read the book, making it my 3rd read. I absolutely adored the voice of Jesper. He always had a tone in his voice that made it sound like he was laughing at everyone. Matthias' voice was a close second. I actually grew to like Matthias even more through hearing his voice instead of just reading it. Great audiobook!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Six of Crows There was a lot of hype around this book, and it was on my to-be-read list for a long time. When I finally got around to reading it, it wasn't quite what I was expecting. In the end, I really enjoyed it, but I had a hard time getting really invested at the beginning. It took me much longer than usual to read because I was just so uninterested. I did love the mission impossible aspect. I found it hard to accept that this was a gang of teenagers. The only characters I found actually felt their age were Inej and Wylan. I'm looking forward to the sequel, because I need to know what happens next! But I really hope it has a more exciting beginning than this one did, and that it keeps my attention/interest until the end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ONE OF MY FAVOURITES I just finished reading this book a few days ago and I still cannot seem to get over it. Bardugo has a way of creating a world in which she entrances and traps you in, and you will absolutely enjoy getting lost in it. I do not suppose anything I say can suffice for me to express how much I loved reading it, but I encourage everyone to give it a try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Probably my favourite series... This was my first time reading a book by Leigh Bardugo. I walked into Six of Crows without any prior knowledge of the Grishaverse and I feel like I was able to follow along perfectly well. This book is definitely one of my favourites I have ever read. I can't even put into words how I feel about it. READ IT. You won't be disappointed! <3

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too much hype? This book was good, but it was not great, at least in my opinion. The story reminded me of the Lies of Locke Lamora, but Lies was much better in terms of story, writing, characters, and plot. Perhaps this book is more geared towards teens where Lies is more mature, but I can't help but feel disappointed since everyone else seems to have loved it...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this book Great characters, interesting setting, meaningful relationships, a nerve wracking heist; so many elements made this book an entertaining read. It was really easy to love the characters, all very different but fitting together nicely. I hadn't really been intrigued by the idea of a heist novel at first, so I'm glad I ended up giving it a chance, since it was quite fun. I haven't read the Grisha Trilogy, but I wasn't as interested to so I wasn't bothered about potentially reading spoilers. I don't think there's much in here that would ruin the trilogy, but if you're planning on reading it I'd suggest doing that before this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Heist I love a good heist novel and this doesn't disappoint! This was leaps and bounds more intricate than the Grisha trilogy. The different perspectives would generally be very jarring, but the way this book is set up, every character has their own voice and it's just so much fun to read. No character was useless in terms of their role in the overall plan and every single one of them had something at stake. I loved this dearly and the cliffhanger at the end was terribly wonderful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth The Hype Okay, so I know people have been talking about this book and this series for a long time and essentially saying it's one of the best books ever. And they are right. It. Was. AWESOME. Though it was set in the Grisha Trilogy universe and made reference to a couple people from that trilogy, this was a whole different ballgame. The setting was grittier, darker, and a lot more vicious. The same could be said for the characters, the most loveable gang of thugs I've yet to read about. Each one is distinctive and has at least one major sin/fault that dogs them every step. I love them all, but Inej and Kaz are my absolute favourites. She's wily, tough, and capable of amazing feats. And he's... He's Kaz. Distinctive, memorable, unpredictable, layered, just such a rich and intimidating character. The entire story was filled with action, constant twists and turns, surprises, mischief, and an ending that had me begging for more. This is definitely one of the best books I've read this year and I can't recommend it enough. If you haven't read it yet, you need to do so now! #plumreview

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing!!!! Not sure how to rate this one; 2.75 stars? I was really hoping to love this book, especially with all of the positive hype surrounding it. Six of Crows has elements of The Italian Job, which I loved, and is set in a fantastical Russia-reminiscent world. I've heard that you don't need to read The Grisha Series first, but I would have to disagree. I felt that the world was not well explained, nor the magic system, and I would argue that this world-building aspect must have been better developed in The Grisha Series (read the first book, really did not like it and I can't remember anything about it which did not help this reading experience). Overall I felt that the characters were quite immature and I could not connect with them. I have heard that several readers are very attached to certain characters (I'm looking at you, Kaz), but I found that I wasn't as interested in these fan-favourites. I may check out the second book since I already own it, but I may also DNF it part way through since I am not really invested in this story.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Far More Intense Than 'The Grisha' Trilogy I'm late to the game, I realize this. I've only recently discovered the magic of Leigh Bardugo's writing, but her Grisha-verse novels were far better than I ever expected. Now, after reading the magical piece of YA lit that is Six Of Crows, I couldn't be more grateful to my past-self for reading the Grisha trilogy first. Six Of Crows, by itself, is a wonderful work. The characters are well-developed and independent of past novels; the plot does not rely on past events. This is a new age, a new generation, and with a marvelous array of villains. Ordinarily, I would say, "And heroes, too", but that's the thing about Kaz and Co.: they're not "heroes", per se. They're criminals (say some), gang members (say others), but really, they're just young people trying to survive the cruel fortune Fate has thrown at them. And I couldn't love them more for it. That being said, there are a lot of Easter eggs in this book that would have left me scratching my head had I not read Bardugo's other novels prior to this. There are mentions of Sankta Alina (Alina being the MC of the Grisha trilogy), as well as other things that had me flashing back to long nights spent under the spell of Grisha magic. Six Of Crows may be 90% heist and 10% magic, but I still find it's better to go into this novel with some background knowledge. Overall, this book was absolutely wonderful. I was rooting for Kaz one minute and wanting to wring his scrawny neck the next, but I can't deny that Bardugo has created one of the most intriguing and monumental characters in young adult fiction. And not only Kaz - the entire crew in this book, even those characters who I started out hating and slowly grew to love. The plot twists in this book were another matter (I don't think my heart will ever be the same), but I will say this: totally worth it. No regrets. Loved every freaking minute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's on my Favourites Shelf SIX OF CROWS is one of my favourite books - ever. The world building is phenomenal, and each character has his or her own detailed backstory. Kaz and every member of his gang are so well developed that it's hard to believe they aren't real. If the fast-paced, keep-you-on-the-edge-of-your-seat thrill ride of a plot isn't enough to hold your interest, then these characters sure will! The sequel is just as stunning, and it was very hard to say goodbye to these characters and world that I have grown to love so dearly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favourite! I loved everything about this book. The plot was about an action-packed heist. The setting was phenomenal. The main characters are thieves, runaways and convicts and I fell in love with all of them. I was hooked as soon as I started reading!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best book I've ever read I don't go around saying this much, because often for me books (especially of different genres) have different feelings and different reasons why I like them, but this book literally takes the cake in all possible subsections: characters, world building, storytelling abilities and more. The romance of this book is subtle and enjoyable and leaves readers wanting more, always more. I have recommended these books to my friends already and they, like me, are hooked

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I pre-ordered this! (I rarely do so) I might be biased since I really enjoyed the Grisha Trilogy but I feel like I would like this book regardless of whether I have previously read her other works. Even though this story takes place in the same universe, the characters gives the story a different feel. I would recommend this book to people who enjoy Ocean Eleven but with characters that have avatar powers and hidden back stories.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST YA SERIES I love Leigh Bardugo's writing! The plots were so clever and had me on the edge of my seat the entire time! I also love the development of the relationships between the six of them - so many emotions were stirred. Every character brings so much to the overall story and it is just the most beautiful thing. There's Kaz the mastermind, and Inej, who every lady cheers for (because who wouldn't cheer for a strong female protagonist? side note: no, inej is nothing like every other YA story girl). This book is just so good and I hope you will read it and love it just as much as I did

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best characters I can’t believe I am taking the time to write this review considering the fact that Crooked Kingdom is on my bedside table, just waiting for me to plunge into it. Still, I think this book deserves at least a review. I think I was hooked around page 30, on Kaz’s first point of view. Not gonna lie, the first hundred pages can be quite overwhelming as there is a lot of information about this new world. But the writing is so beautiful and the characters are so interesting that you cannot put it down despite the deluge of details. Our main character, Kaz Brekker, is young, mysterious, angry and clearly dealing with some painful memories. He is the mastermind behind the heist that this gang of criminals is going to perform. Every time we got to know a bit more about his past was a delight, a chance to understand him better. But even if I clearly fell for Kaz, I can’t say that he’s my absolute favorite because each of the characters brings so much to the book. They are all relatable in some way. The fact that Bardugo succeeded in creating six complex characters while being able to talk about each of their elaborate backgrounds blew my mind. I am amazed by the amount of times Bardugo took me by surprise. The pace is mastered, and the book is a succession of actions, unexpected twists while giving us captivating characters and relationships.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from amazing! Six of Crows really lives up to the hype. A story of plotting, magic, friendship, trust, and death. Kaz Brekker, the one in the Barrels. So when he is asked to retrieve a precious someone, he has to build an efficient team, one that he can count on for accomplishing what he tells them to do. Six of Crows finds itself in the Grisha universe, one you can get to know better by reading Shadow and Bone also by Leigh Bardugo. It’s not necessary to have read it before SoC, but I sometimes asked myself why I didn’t do it. Just know, it’s a lot of information to process in the first 50 pages if you haven’t read the first trilogy before. Leigh Bardugo has a way to write delightful characters; each one having a depth and an evolution that are believable; each one with different goals, different paths but, when put together, can accomplished grand things. I also really liked the diversity in the characters. You get PoC, WoC and lgbtqa+ ships. The amount of sass, wits and flirty remarks punctuated the book with funny moments and lots of little plot twists, which kept the book really interesting in all its 460 pages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Wonderful Read! I have nothing but good things to say about Six of Crows. Once you are introduced to all of the characters in the book you can't help but love each one for who they are individually. The story kept you intrigued and in suspense the entire time, I ended up reading this in one sitting, which I don't do very often anymore. I was not prepared for the story to end, I honestly believe that a well written book like this one should never end, but maybe that's just me being greedy. I am looking forward to reading Crooked Kingdom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must-read Wow you can definitely tell how much Ms Bardugo has improved since her 1st book of the whole Grisha trilogy. I really enjoyed her writing style in 3rd person vs 1st person in her Shadow and Bone series. (Not that Alina wasn't a great character but just imagining what it'd be like to see through Nikolai's head or the Darkling's would have been so cool). But onto this book, all the 6 main characters (yeah 6 and she pulled it off!) were flawed but wonderful. Of course I didn't doubt that Bardugo wouldn't weave some kind of romance into the story. It was barely there and in just the right amount too. Nina and Matthias had their own backstory together being sworn enemies and overcoming all the prejudices and such. And then I thought the chemistry between Kaz & Inej was great :D They're both strong and independent and have come to rely on each other but not excessively. It was a nice change. But my favourite duo would probably have to be Jesper & Wylan. I started noticing how Jesper always got a little jealous whenever Kaz praised Inej and when Jesper actually started arbitrarily telling Wylan that he had a cute face, I couldn't stop grinning. xD Obviously they were the comic relief in the book and comic relief characters are always my favourite. So basically this whole group of misfits join together in order to break a Shu scientist out of the Ice Court which is basically the most secure prison in the entire world. The whole adventure and backstories that are revealed along the way were extremely well written and never once was there a lull in the book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Incredible Read I was not ready for this book to end! And to be candid, I am a little peeved about the cliff hanger. Leigh Bardugo writes amazingly diverse and relatable characters. At first I was thrown by the multiple points of view, but I was so drawn in by the characters, it really didn't matter after a while. I strongly suggest this read, and I cannot write a proper review at the moment because I need to know if there is a sequel and get my hands on it.
Date published: 2017-02-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by from WOW This is the first book that I have read by Leigh Bardugo, and what can I honestly say without fangirling my heart out. Bardugo created this Grisha world, and it's stunning in every single aspect. I give Six of Crows 9.2 out of 10 rating. Everything about this book was well crafted and intriguing beyond belief. I know that this is not the first book Leigh has created within this Grisha world, and for some it probably would be easier to read that trilogy first to fully understand all the names being dropped, but I hadn't read that trilogy yet and I understood the general story line perfectly. For starters, I would like to point out the turn this book took for the actual perspectives itself. Each chapter had a character name stated at the top. So at first I thought that meant that this book was going to be alternating between six different characters POV's, at that point I had gotten a little scared. However that's not the case at all. The names at the top of each chapter stated which character the chapter would generally focus on and then it would be told in a third person perspective. The thing that pulled me in right from the start was the blurb on the back, it was solid gold. Everything about it made the story sound so intriguing. I think my favourite part would have to have been this: "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."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMazingggggg If you have read the Grisha trilogy and didn't love it (I didn't either), then you MUST read this. Leigh Bardugo's writing has improved so much she is on another level. And if you haven't read her writing before, this is the perfect book to be introduced to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hooked I haven't read YA in years, but this series has rekindled my love for the genre. Having each chapter of this book alternate between the 6 young rogues was such a fresh take and kept the book fulling engaging from beginning to end. Leigh Bardugo gave each character such a distinct voice and painted such a beautiful world that I often forgot I wasn't in Kedderdam along with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A For the Lover of Books Review Number of pages: 465 Number of times read (including the time before this review): 1 Rating (out of five stars): 5 My heart was so confused after finishing this, and that’s exactly what finishing a good book should feel like. I was up until midnight in the middle of exams finishing this, and once I finished it I held it to my chest for a good ten minutes. I’m filled with too many emotions even thinking back to the moment I finished Six of Crows days later. There were so many rave reviews, and since I normally end up disliking incredibly popular books, I passed on Six of Crows when it first came out, but having now finished it I regret that decision. If you haven’t already, read this book! I will say that it took me a while to get into the story. Maybe it’s because I have not and most likely will not read The Grisha Trilogy, and I therefore had no concept of how this world worked. I also live in an incredibly safe place, so it’s hard for me to imagine gangs fighting over territory and collecting information from brothels. After I got used to the world, this book was addicting. It wasn’t addicting in the way that most books are, manifesting in the form of pages flying by. It was addicting in a way that made it extremely difficult to think about anything not Six of Crows related (which is not good in the middle of exams). I needed to keep reading. I needed to know what could possibly go wrong at the end to require a sequel. I needed for all of the characters to form romantic relationships with each other. Speaking of romantic relationships, is it normal to ship all of the main characters with each other? These characters better be in relationships by the end of Crooked Kingdom, or I will be very upset. Also, if Kaz ruins everything with Inej, I may cry. This is how invested I am. I am not normally one to play matchmaker, but I need a happy ending for these characters. By the end of this book, I had gone into full-fledged helicopter parent mode towards the main cast of characters. There was screaming, my heart was pounding out of my chest, and I came to the realization that if any of them died I would be completely destroyed. No one better hurt them in Crooked Kingdom, or those beautiful red pages with be coloured with my tears. Overall, I am way too emotionally invested in Six of Crows, and it is by far the best book I have read since May 2016, earning it 5 out of 5 stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I stepped out of my comfort zone and was rewarded by Leigh Bardugo. 5/5 This book was a guilty pleasure and I really enjoyed it. Although the characters could have easily been 5-10 years older, and everything would have been fine, I can understand that some people rise to certain reputations within a seemingly short amount of time. High School is a great reminder of this. But other than that, it was effortless to read, the story was enjoyable, and I now understand the passion behind "shipping"... If anything happens that either kills Matthias, or makes him cry, I'm not going to be a happy camper. I'll live, because I am an adult (or so I tell myself), but I will swear under my breathe every time I see this series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gritty, immersive, and raucously good fun! Straight up, this is a fun read. From the summary, you can tell this will be a book about a heist, so it's a given that it's full of cunning and cleverness. But what you don't necessarily expect is all of the action and suspense. Despite being spread over multiple point-of-view characters, Six of Crows takes you inside the minds of very distinct personalities, each with their own voices, and surprisingly, all of them are quite likeable. The world-building is top-notch—it's easy to get caught in the fascinating world of Ketterdam that Bardugo's created—and there's just a little bit of romance to create a teensy bit of tension between characters. All in all, a fantastic read that with twists and turns that'll keep you turning the pages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE this book! 2016/09/28 I changed my mind. On re-read, this book deserves 5 stars. I cannot think of a single thing I don't like about it. So excited to get The Crooked Kingdom in the mail this week.I started this book way back on February 7 because of all the hype, but quickly realized I knew nothing about Grisha and it seemed like I should. So I stopped reading and pulled out the Grisha Trilogy, which I have owned for a couple of years. I liked the trilogy, but it was not my favourite, so I hesitated to pick up Six of Crows again. Then I discovered BookTube and learned that all the readers who were not fond of The Grisha Trilogy still loved Six of Crows. So I decided to give it another try this week. I had a hard time getting into it at first. It took about 100 pages until I started to enjoy it. There are a lot of characters to get to know, and the POV changes quite often (every chapter). Not only does the POV change, but there are a lot of flashbacks from each of the six characters so that you can get to know their histories and how they got to where they are today. I realized later on that this was necessary for the story, but it just felt like a lot of stopping and starting for me, trying to remember what the next character was referring to when he started up with his flashback again. It was this bit of chaos that turned an amazing book into a great book. Now that I know all of the characters, and have become invested in their outcomes I suspect that I will love the upcoming sequel even more than Six of Crows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favourite book that I read in 2016! besides The Hobbit, this was my first high fantasy book. it took me about 80 pages to *really* get into it, but I think anyone who normally reads high fantasy wouldn't have that problem. I'm so glad that I gave this book a chance and pushed past the frustrating-not-understanding-anything-they-say phase. Because it was AMAZING! The author goes so deep into the characters' lives and really makes you feel for them and understand them. I loved that you got five different points of view throughout the story and got to see what life in this universe was like for each character, since they all went through very different things growing up, which helped them to make their decisions and act the way they did throughout the book. I loved the magic in it, and the way the Grishas were treated by different people. I loved the viewpoints around them and how it all related back to the real world. The story itself was also incredibly interesting and exciting. I mean a heist in a magical universe? YES PLEASE! Six of Crows is gritty and raw, and it completely captivated me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy the Hardcover First of all, I ordered book 2 before I was halfway through Six of Crows. It was THAT good. Also I ordered book 2 with a giftcard I'd been hording for 4 months "for something special". BUY THE HARDCOVER. It is a beautiful object, the pages are edged in black, the accent pages are red, the "Part 1" pages are black with white lettering. If you take off the dustjacket there is an embossed crow on the front. It's so well done, really glad I didn't get the eBook in this case. The characters are compelling and you'll love to follow them. The book is dark, it is violent, it is not traditional YA (in fact the characters felt like 20-somethings to me), but overall it was just so good. If you're a fan of Cassandra Clare I think you'll like these complex characters and their relationships. If you liked The Hunger Games and Divergent, I think you'll like this world. But it's darker than any of those books so be prepared for that. Five out of five, instant fan for life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cannot recommend enough Seriously, this book has everything and I would recommend it to everyone. A wonderfully diverse cast and amazingly developed characters - thiefs and gamblers and con artists who come together to pull off the greatest heist imaginable. Bardugo lets the reader know just enough about the great plan to be thrilled and impressed by the scope of it, but what's truly impressive is her ability to keep surprising with new little twists throughout, so you just can't put it down. All of the surprises made so much sense and yet I still never saw them coming - I've never found another author who was so good at setting up reveals with just enough little hints that you immediately understand it even though you never expected. And just because I haven't emphasized it enough, I'll say it again: the characters are WONDERFUL. Read this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Read. This. Book. The story in this book is so incredibly well thought out and written. This is the only book that actually truly made me understand the expression "You'll be on the edge of your seat for this!" If you haven't read Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo you're very behind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING this has become my favourite book! i can't put into words how much i adore this book. the writing was perfection, the story was perfection, but its the characters that really captured my heart. this book has everything i could have asked for. anti-heroes, a great plot, fast paced writing, romance, and characters with great chemistry. another amazing aspect is the representation in this book. the characters are so diverse and badass and it's just so important for the YA genre. i could go on and on about this book for DAYS, but i will end this review with a huge thank you to leigh bardugo for making this awesome world with even more amazing characters!
