Okay, maybe a little more.
This WORLD. How I missed it; and I loved seeing a different angle of it as opposed to just Ravka from the Grisha Trilogy, even though now all I want to do is reread those books to dive right back in. These CHARACTERS. Misfits, criminals, convicts.. a perfectly imperfect group of deviants. I loved them all. Those SHIPS. I ship them all. Every single one. They were all so different and complex, with something for everyone, and the romance was subtle and strange and beautiful. (Kaz, oh Kaz, you're so effed up) That HEIST. I loved that it all went wrong. Even when you thought they had survived it and come out the other end, nope, it still went wrong some more. And then further wrong. The freaking ENDING. Okay, going into this I definitely thought it was a standalone; it was only halfway through I saw the title of the second book that at least gave me a little bit of a heads-up that things probably weren't going to end perfectly. Or maybe they would and we would just see more of the Crow Crew, it was hard to tell. But then..
Yeah, so, SIX OF CROWS was amazing, but like that's any surprise. If you're reading this review you already know it. I loved the Grisha Trilogy but I have to say that Bardugo has really hit her stride with this one. Her writing seems to have matured (not that it was IMmature before this), possibly even more vivid, and basically I need the next book right now. Please.
The book had a great summary and it made me think greatly about the novel's potential. However, it wasn't the best it could have been. I would sometime sigh because of some scenes that were too predictable or didn't have enough depth.
Another fantasy novel I would strongly suggest would be Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson. If you enjoy fantasy, this is among the best ones out there (and for those who something more mature in the writing and were a bit disappointed by Six of Crows: I definitely suggest the Mistborn trilogy).
I love reading books where author manages to make me forget that I'm reading a book and Leigh Bardugo did that with her awesome writing. It felt so smooth like I was not reading a book but watching a movie. All six characters were unique and had something to add to the story in their own way.
They're misfits which fit perfectly with each other.
The best thing about this book
1. Character: Each one has something to bring to the story. Each one has a talent that takes the story forward. Even the side characters come with their own flavour. Its written from five points of views. The only book with so many characters pov is game of thrones. And just like GOT, Six of Crows pov are different, each one has their own voice and own way of looking at the same situation. Their emotions are raw and I believe their past experience helps them to bond with each other. They know how it feels to be so alone, so hopeless.
2. Story and the twist: Six of crows will go down as a book that had something new happening in each page. You will always be on alert. Every word will demand your attention, every twist will make your heart race, your jaw to drop. Many times, I stopped reading just to let it sink, all the while wondering how will the author pull her characters out of this situation. And each time she did it so smoothly that it made me realise how well she knows this character especially with the background story. We get to know what each of the characters has been through and why they believe or do certain things in such a way.
3. Place: Ketterdam, oh!!! how I loved and hated the city. It was a perfect place for the city. I could smell the salt in the air and humidity just like the characters.
4. Writing: Just brilliant. The dialogue is the best part of the book. The command on the language is strong. Not every author can pull off great writing but Leigh Bardugo is the queen.
Lastly, if like me you've not read any previous work of Leigh Bardugo than give yourself some time. It will be confusing in the beginning but have patience.
