Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

Hello, I’m back, it’s been about a year since I last posted, but I’m back now, and I have a lot more time for reading and reviewing since we’re all in lockdown. Anyway, I read this book a couple of months ago, and I really enjoyed it, it’s got a bit of everything, romance, adventure, humour and plot twists. The story is centered around Kaz Brekker and his gang, The Dregs, who are attempting to pull off an impossible heist to recover a hostage. The plot was clever and interesting and I could never predict what was going to happen next, or where the story was headed. There were plenty of interesting characters, I liked that the, I guess you could call them heroes of the story, weren’t necessarily good people or traditionally heroic, most novels in this sort of genre have an obvious goody Vs baddy dynamic. However, the line was sort of blurred between who was right and wrong, the heroes of the story all had different reasons to embark on the heist and have very different views on life. Kaz Brekker was by far my favourite, he’s a very complex character, and despite being quite selfish and rude at times, he’s still very likeable. Saying that, Jesper and Inej are definitely contenders for my favourite character, Jesper brings some light and humour back into what could be a quite dark and heavy story. Inej is just really cool, and a strong female lead in a gang full of men. Where the book is set is also really interesting, The Barrel is a town full of gangs and crime in a fantasy setting, I can’t wait to see how they portray it in the TV show. I would definitely recommend this book, especially since they are currently making a Netflix show at the moment, so get reading. I hope you are all well and staying safe, if all goes to plan there will be another book review next week. You can subscribe via email so that you get a notification when I post new reviews.
