Book Series: Six of Crows, #2
Reading Format: Hardcover
Kaz Brekker and his crew have just pulled off a heist so daring even they didn’t think they’d survive. But instead of divvying up a fat reward, they’re right back to fighting for their lives. Double-crossed and left crippled by the kidnapping of a valuable team member, the crew is low on resources, allies, and hope. As powerful forces from around the world descend on Ketterdam to root out the secrets of the dangerous drug known as jurda parem, old rivals and new enemies emerge to challenge Kaz’s cunning and test the team’s fragile loyalties. A war will be waged on the city’s dark and twisting streets―a battle for revenge and redemption that will decide the fate of magic in the Grisha world.
Thoughts & Review
I am so emotional because of this book. Completing it late at night was a bad idea, because I fell asleep crying over a single character that had a soft spot in my heart throughout this journey. It was torture. My thoughts were all over the place after that last chapter. The main one was: Why can’t there be more?
Don’t get me wrong, I love it when authors have just two books for a certain storyline, but, for this one. . .there should be more. I just want more. That last page has left me hanging in a good way.
There was so much character development throughout this entire book, and, honestly, that is one of the best things about this duology ending.
If you have not picked up Six of Crows, I highly recommend it.
