Six of Crows (Six of Crows #1) by Leigh Bardugo
Release Date: September 29, 2015
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.
I’m sure this isn’t a surprise! I loved Leigh Bardugo’s Grisha series, and I’m really excited to see her write more in the Grisha-verse. I always like fantasy settings that aren’t Western European inspired. And as much as I liked Alina, the Grisha, and the Darkling, I’m eager to see what life is like for normal people in that world. Well, as normal as you can be when you’re an outcast planning a big heist.
