I love “Six of Crows.”
Let’s start at the beginning. I prepared for this year’s BookExpo America (BEA) by making a “most wanted books” list, and “Six of Crows,” the first in a new duology by Leigh Bardugo, was near the top. Lo and behold, I was lucky enough to snag a copy.
Admittedly, I was a little hesitant to read this book because though I very much enjoyed “Shadow and Bone,” the first book in Bardugo’s "Grisha" trilogy, I thought the last in the "Grisha" series left something to be desired in terms of both plot and character development. I am happy to say that those worries are unfounded when it comes to “Six of Crows.”
“Six of Crows” begins a bit slowly because there is a lot of introductory information, which is especially necessary for those who have not read any of the "Grisha" trilogy. The good news? You do not need to have read the "Grisha" series to enjoy this one.
