Hello again lovelies! So, before we get started on this review, I wanted to mention a few things. This is a combined review, so it will have Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom in it. Also, if you want to see pictures and videos of my adventures in Florida, and of course Harry Potter World, add me on Snapchat! My user name is Briannamaye. So I don’t post very often on my story, so if you want to be spammed with extra videos or pictures, just send a chat to me, and we’ll work something out! (:
Six of Crows & Crooked Kingdom
WARNING: This post does not contain spoilers, so read away!
Six of Crows synopsis: Criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker has been offered wealth beyond his wildest dreams. But to claim it, he’ll have to pull off a seemingly impossible heist:
Break into the notorious Ice Court
(a military stronghold that has never been breached)
Retrieve a hostage
(who could unleash magical havoc on the world)
Survive long enough to collect his reward
(and spend it)
Kaz needs a crew desperate enough to take on this suicide mission and dangerous enough to get the job done – and he knows exactly who: six of the deadliest outcasts the city has to offer. Together, they just might be unstoppable – if they don’t kill each other first.
Crooked Kingdom synopsis: I didn’t post the synopsis for Crooked Kingdom because it did involve a spoiler for Six of crows, but if you really want to read the synopsis anyway, you can find it on Goodreads here.
So I started Six of Crows and wasn’t feeling it, really at all. I don’t know why, but it just didn’t seem interesting to me. Fast forward to few chapters though, and I realized that I couldn’t put it down. Crooked Kingdom was even better for me. Bardugo wrote this story in such a beautiful way. There were so many details that she added that make the story flow so smoothly. I tried to predict what would happen during the story, but Bardugo always had more tricks up her sleeve, which threw me off. I loved it.
I was totally in love with the characters in this story. Kaz Brekker fascinated me with how smart he was and how he was constantly at least one step ahead of everyone. Inej was a total badass who kept a good soul after all the things that the team did, and Wylan did everything he could to fit in with the Crows and make as part of their team. Jesper made mistakes but he always tried to be better, Nina’s humor made me laugh all the time, and Matthias realized that different people think differently, and sometimes you’re raised believing the wrong things. Each and every one of these characters made the story, and I loved every bit of it.
Bardugo also made the setting critical to the story. What better way to sell a heist than to use the criminal from the slums? Everything fit perfectly together and I was amazed at how much I actually liked this story. *I may have cried a little when it was over, but it’s fine.*
So that concludes this review, and once again, I’m so sorry it took me so long to post it. I’ll see you next time, or maybe I’ll see you on my snapchat!
