Hello, my darling readers!
I was over the moon with Six of Crows and beyond ready to dive into a new adventure with my beloved Murder Babies. So, let’s get talking about Crooked Kingdom!
They did it. Kaz Brekker and his crew pulled off the most daring heist the world has ever seen. But they cannot seem to escape trouble. After being double-crossed they must once more fight for what they already earned – and take their revenge…
Crooked Kingdom is a rollercoaster of emotions. I laughed, I held my breath, I was in tears and my heart broke over the ending.
While Six of Crows was about one huge gig they pulled, Crooked Kingdom is about several intricate little cons that are part of the bigger plan concocted by criminal mastermind Kaz Brekker.
Seriously, how does Leigh Bardugo come up with this kind of stuff? The amount of thought that must have gone into this – it’s incredible.
The second book in this duology is even more emotional than the first one and I think that’s what sets both novels apart the most. Although Crooked Kingdom continues a story that began in Six of Crows the vibe is different. That’s absolutely perfect because the characters feel different now. They shared experiences and are not the same people they were before!
I don’t even know what else to say but please read these two books. I found them both to be utterly amazing and found them much better than the Shadow and Bone trilogy (although that was good as well).
I cannot wait for the adaptation series that Netflix has promised us!
