Six of Crows (Large Print / Library Binding)
Other Books in Series
This is book number 1 in the Six of Crows series.
This duology counts among the most memorable reading experiences I’ve ever had, and I would give a lot to be able to read them again for the first time. I laughed, I cried, I was on the edge of my seat – I love these characters fiercely.
Bardugo’s Shadow and Bone trilogy gets all the hype that comes with the 2021 Netflix show, but I find the Crows duology to be the best of the Grishaverse. The pacing is fast but the plot remains intricate and the worldbuilding immersive. You’ll recognize echoes in this fantasy world of Russia, China, Scandinavia, Ireland, and the Netherlands and hints of Renaissance Europe and the industrial age as the backdrop for the ensemble cast of characters taking on the heist of a lifetime.
The characters are really what make this so special. Each chapter rotates among the main characters’ perspectives, which I don’t always enjoy, but there is not a single character in this book that I don’t want to hear more from. I will never get over Kaz, Inej, Nina, Jesper, Matthias, and Wylan. The misfit teenage criminals chosen family of my dreams!
Bardugo will leave a Ketterdam-shaped hole in your heart with this one.

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.”
