Kaz Brekker and his crew have just pulled off a heist so daring even they didn’t think they’d survive. But instead of divvying up a fat reward, they’re right back to fighting for their lives.
Kaz Brekker and his crew have just pulled off a heist so daring even they didn’t think they’d survive. But instead of divvying up a fat reward, they’re right back to fighting for their lives. Double-crossed and badly weakened, the crew is low on resources, allies, and hope. As powerful forces from around the world descend on Ketterdam to root out the secrets of the dangerous drug known as jurda parem, old rivals and new enemies emerge to challenge Kaz’s cunning and test the team’s fragile loyalties. A war will be waged on the city’s dark and twisting streets―a battle for revenge and redemption that will decide the fate of the Grisha world.
This was a solid 4.5.
I can’t deny the genius that is Leigh Bardugo. There is soo much creativity and depth to her work. You feel like she sets out to teach you something instead of show you. Out of the countless authors in the world, Leigh shines bright as the true chosen one amongst them. You get the feeling that she has something to tell you with plenty more waiting on the horizon.
Her stories aren’t the typical YA blabady bla bla fluff. She serves you the real deal.
Crooked Kingdom was wonderful. Eventful and exciting. However, it was a little all over the place for totally my taste. Although, I do understand the artistic reasoning behind making it so. Since, it’s a representation of how unpredictable their lives are like. I prefer it’s prequel, Six Of Crows over this one. However, I did find myself gasping and on the edge of my seat whilst reading it.
I’m currently nursing my serious hangover over this book. My feelings are all over the place and I’m honestly floored by the level of brilliant plots, great character development and sheer creativity of it all.
I’m soo glad that I talked myself into buying this series. What on earth was I doing with my life before all of this?
Until Next Time,
