Six of Crows

Book: Six of Crows
Series: Six of Crows #1
Author: Leigh Bardugo

Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price—and no one knows that 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.

Six dangerous outcasts. One impossible heist. Kaz's crew is the only thing that might stand between the world and destruction—if they don't kill each other first.-Goodreads

Review: Wow-Leigh Bardugo is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. I loved the Grisha series and this new series takes place in the same world (although the Grisha was focused on Russia and this is more Netherlands) with all new characters. This is essentially a YA fantasy version of Oceans Eleven. The world building was excellent, the cast of characters were well developed (LOVED Nina) and I enjoyed the heists. The first heist consists of breaking a prisoner out of a secure prison, while the second is breaking into the most secure building to rescue a scientist. I loved this! 

Grade: 5/5
