Six of Crows (Paperback)
Other Books in Series
This is book number 1 in the Six of Crows series.
A convict, a sharpshooter, a runaway, a spy, a witch, and a thief. These unruly characters make up our crows, a gang of misfits set on an impossible heist that could save the world, so long as they don’t kill each other first. I will be one of the many to say that I - love- this - book! Six of Crows has the perfect blend of deep character development, stunning world building, a fun an interesting plot, as well as some of the best comedic timing one could find in a YA novel. Because this book has such a diverse cast of characters, Leigh Bardugo is able to add perfect moments of levity and downright humor that make you want to keep reading from beginning to end. This book had me laughing, screaming, crying, and cheering and I honestly could not have asked for a better reading experience!— Anna C.
Summer 2018 Reading Group Indie Next List
“An impossible heist, a fantasy world, and a crew of six very different people brought together in their quest for a life-changing fortune. Quietly dazzling in its complexity, Leigh Bardugo’s newest is the type of book that makes the rest of the world drop away while reading it. This book will consume you in the way only a brilliant fantasy book can. With characters that felt so real I wanted to meet them, and an action packed plot with plenty of subterfuge, intrigue, and complicated relationships, this book will quickly vault to the top of your favorite books list and firmly entrench itself there… at least until the sequel.”
