Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo #bookreviews

Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price—and no one knows 23437156that better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can’t pull it off alone…

A convict with a thirst for revenge.

A sharpshooter who can’t walk away from a wager.

A runaway with a privileged past.

A spy known as the Wraith.

A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums.

A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes.

Kaz’s crew are the only ones who might stand between the world and destruction—if they don’t kill each other first. – Goodreads.com

I read somewhere this book is being compared to Ocean’s Eleven and since that movie is on my list of favs, I knew I needed to check out Six of Crows.  This novel is ridiculously fantastic – exquisite world-building, a tight, intricate plot line that moves at warp speed, and supreme character development.

Kaz has got to be one of the most intriguing characters I’ve ever read – a heart-breaking past, yearning for revenge,  intimidating criminal reputation.  And on top of that, he’s wickedly intelligent, cunning, and full of surprises.

Five different POVs may sound confusing, but it gives the story a much broader scope and with such an imaginative plot, varying POVs are an absolute necessity.  Another bonus is that I really enjoyed getting to know those five characters and their back stories.

I’m not sure when the next book in this series will be published, but when it is, I’ll drop whatever I’m reading at that time to continue this story.  Highly recommended.
