Staff Reviews


A czarist Russia influenced mashup of the Golden Compass, Ocean's Eleven, and Peaky Blinders.

This gang of cutthroat teenage criminals will sneak, steal, and sabotage their way into your heart. And maybe your wallet. Probably your wallet.

— From Anje

In Ketterdam, there's a saying: No mourners, no funerals.

I read Six of Crows back in 2015 and I'm still in love with it. Six teens all with their own unique skills come together to perform the most impossible heist of their criminal careers. Led and hand-picked by the ruthless Kaz Brekker (known as Dirtyhands), this unlikely outcast group must break a dangerous criminal out of a high security prison and collect the substantial reward all without turning on each other. This is not a fluffy read. Each member of Kaz's team is self-motivated. Their moral compasses don't always point north which makes their group dynamic complex and fun.

— From Halley

Description


Enter the Grishaverse with the #1 New York Times-bestselling Six of Crows.

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.

Six dangerous outcasts. One impossible heist. Kaz's crew is the only thing that might stand between the world and destruction--if they don't kill each other first.

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo returns to the breathtaking world of the Grishaverse in this unforgettable tale about the opportunity--and the adventure--of a lifetime.

"Six of Crows is a twisty and elegantly crafted masterpiece that thrilled me from the beginning to end." -New York Times-bestselling author Holly Black

"Six of Crows is] one of those all-too-rare, unputdownable books that keeps your eyes glued to the page and your brain scrambling to figure out what's going to happen next." -Michael Dante DiMartino, co-creator of Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra

"There's conflict between morality and amorality and an appetite for sometimes grimace-inducing violence that recalls the Game of Thrones series. But for every bloody exchange there are pages of crackling dialogue and sumptuous description. Bardugo dives deep into this world, with full color and sound. If you're not careful, it'll steal all your time." --The New York Times Book Review
