Obsessed with this book. Completely in love with this, I adore Kaz, I adore Wylan and Jesper, the plot is so good, I love it so much

Ragtag team, heist of a lifetime, with magic!. I loved the Grishaverse trilogy so I was excited to keep going with this duology and I really enjoyed this first book. It may have even been better than the Shadowbone trilogy. There seemed to be a lot more action as the rag tag team from The Barrel takes on a heist of a lifetime. I especially enjoyed the multiple POV’s. It was nice to get in the mindset of each character. The multicast of narrators did a phenomenal job embracing the characters. My only wish was that the narration had been more conversational in that each character player their part no matter whose POV. But in the end it was still an enjoyable listen.

If every author could understand this. Many authors have great plots, great characters, or both. Ironically most do not excel at storytelling. Leigh does an excellent job of moving the story forward while dropping in a few details along the way to build depth and context. Too many authors don’t trust their audience to build an acceptable picture in their minds and feel compelled to bog down the action with pages and pages of description with a villain 30 seconds behind the protagonist. Thank you, Leigh, for taking the risk that your story will survive without spelling out every detail. Your work is a pleasure to read.

great book. smth was missing and idk what - definitely more than a 4 star book but not a full 5 for me. i keep comparing it to dance of thrives :/

A-MUST-READ-ONCE-IN-YOUR-LIFETIME. DONT EVEN GET ME STARTED. This book showed up on my Tiktok. And boy am I so glad I read it. I’m not the hugest fan of fantasy, but this was absolutely gold. Each character is so perfectly developed. From Kaz’s admiration towards Inej, and his vengeful demeanor after what happened to his brother, it’s just too good. You’ll end up rooting for the Crows so hard that you’ll cry with them, laugh with them, and even smirk with them 😏. It’s action-packed, and perfect for hopeless romantics. The highly descriptive wording is so beautiful. The author is incredibly gifted. I will say, the beginning will confuse you, but please do not stop reading because of it. It will make more sense as you go. Plus, it only gets better 😉

Phenomenal!. This book was SO GOOD! Heist, suspense, sarcasm, great one liners, and a bit of Small Science and you’ve got yourself a great read! I do suggest reading the Shadow and Bones trilogy BEFORE reading this one. It does help with the Grishaverse concepts. Seriously SO GOOD!

OMG. This book is amazing and a fun and addictive read.

Amazing. I love this book although it is not that plot driven.It does take awhile to get to the heist,but that lets you get to know the characters.The characters are amazing and they all have there own personalities and backgrounds that make them all so different from each other.This book is a must read if you love character driven books. P.S This is my favorite book of all time

Absolutely incredible. This book was captivating from beginning to end. Sure there was plenty of slow storyline parts but those all aid in you getting to know the characters and the Grishaverse better. My heart raced the entire time while reading and having it told from so many perspectives brings on a new and fun dynamic. The characters are well done and endearing. By the end of the book you feel like you went through what they went through and that you are somehow a part of the ragtag team itself. Great read and would recommend to anyone who loves stories of espionage, fantasy, and gritty violence. All in the same world as the Shadow and Bone series!!

WOW. this book is honestly life changing. READ IT.

Six of Crows Review. I LOOOOOOOVED this book! I don’t k ow what it is, but it’s it’s soooo good. The world, the people, and the way she wrote the book. 🤌🤌🤌🤌🤌🤌

Wonderful. Amazing book with beautiful developed and intertwined characters in a vivid setting. I have read Six of Crows countless times! ♡︎

Amazing!!. I'm totally in love with this book and characters. This book is amazing!!

Unique. The story was interesting. All stories have similarities and this one had some normal aspects, but the detail in the storytelling and the subtle aspects added onto the already unique story. I have read many books and this one is different and fun. I loved it. The second in the series is also fantastic.

Six of Crows. Fantastic, a page turner.

I can never get through the first chapter. I have tried so many times but I can’t get through it.

YOU WON’T REGRET SH*T. TRUST ME.. Need I say more?

Amazing. Such a wonderful book! It has a complex and interesting array of characters. The story line is griping and so well done. I honestly loved this book more than the shadow and bone trilogy even though those are still really good books. Cannot wait to read crooked kingdom next.

agh!!!!!. Surprisingly twists and turns, even the things you know through foreshadowing are still done artfully. A wonderful read.

The Rogue One of the Grishaverse. This book takes Bardugo’s earlier writing and deepens it, makes it darker and more interesting, it’s just awesome. The characters are truly excellent, with such varied personalities as a boy who wears gloves so he doesn’t have to touch human flesh and a gunslinger university student who gambles for fun, but digs himself deeper and deeper into debt. I just can’t express the brilliance of this novel enough.

Loved it. Great book, there are not a lot of books that can keep me engaged through the whole story.

Amazing!. Such a great book!

Phenomenal. Absolutely phenomenal. I didn’t get bored or confused; super easy worldbuilding to keep track of and it’s so well written. I was literally salivating for the next page

Awesome. Finished this is 2 days. A lot of world building at the beginning that I found to be well written but hard to follow. I haven’t read the shadow and bone series so that may have helped but power through and it is so worth it!! Awesome book

Made Me Fall Back in Love with Reading. After a huge reading slump that lasted several years, I have finally picked up Six of Crows after hearing numerous people say that it was “one of the best YA novels of all time”. Needless to say, I was not disappointed in the slightest. This book has everything I love in a story: well-developed characters, an intriguing plot, page-turning action, etc. I was utterly breathless while reading it.

SO GOOD. I’m gonna be honest I did not think I would like it, but boy was a wrong. The world building is absolutely amazing. The background of all the characters is so well developed and thought out. Each chapter will leave you wanting more. This book had me SCREAMING (in a good way). The ending was just wow. Kaz Brekker supremacy.

Amazing 1000/10. Never have been addicted to a book so much. If you think you don’t enjoy reading, read this. It will definitely change your mind.

Finally!. My attention span is so low that I usually get bored of books that aren’t well written but this was ✨refreshing✨ The character development was on point, no plot holes or pauses, entertaining from start to finish. Also I love the concept of anti-hero types. Not necessarily a good guy but not all that bad kinda main characters. Mary Sue characters really ain’t it. The complexity and diversity of the characters made it better and more interesting. I was tired of reading literally the same boring book in this genre. Although I have no idea how to pronounce fjerda and other names from the book it didn’t matter because I understood the context and wasn’t confused out of my mind by droning descriptions. I finally found a good read! And I’m super excited for the next book :))

Cinematic Story Telling. (While it’s Six of Crows is arguably much better written than Shadow and Bone; I do recommend that you read Shadow and Bone first because it helps with the world building and vocabulary of this story.) A tale of six emotionally scarred and traumatized teenagers…. sign me up. Six of Crows really is a well written book. I was captivated by the words on the page from start to finish. The characters in this story are a much needed breath of fresh air against ordinary character stereotypes that you see in most books. It has a kind of dark fantasy that you don’t often see in YA fiction. The banter between each character and the relationships that unfold between characters are incredibly well written. I laughed, I cried, and when I say that if I could go back and read Six of Crows again for the first time; I truly do mean it.

top. top

Loved this!. Why did I not discover this book sooner?! One of the best books I’ve read this year, heck, probably in the last few years. I’m just sad there are only two books in this series; I wish there were more. Not ready to have Kaz Brekker and his crows out of my life. A must read!

The ultimate heist. A great different kind of story!! Loved the characters and plot. Lots of action, wise cracks, and chaos! Great character development. And a crazy cliffhanger ending!!! I need to read the next book now! Loved returning to the Grishaverse!

best book i’ve read in a long time. i finished this book in three days i was so hooked. it has such an amazing plot and creative world with interesting characters.

Great read. Fun I enjoyed the characters even though Kaz kinda reminded me of five from the umbrella academy( which is weird cause if they fought five would win probably) but I enjoyed Kaz and the others.

Fun fun book!. Ragtag group of underdogs pulling a massive heist in a richly imagined magical world. Cinematic, fast moving, YA. loved it!

masterpiece. one of the most amazing books ive ever read, i love it so much and leigh is so amazing and had my heart forever

Amazing. But everyone you need to read shadow and bone before you read this it makes this book and I’m reading crooked kingdom now and they mention lots of things from shadow and bone and if you read shadow and bone first you find out things that are very important to crooked kingdom if you insist you read six of crows first then read six of crows then shadow and bone trilogy and the crooked kingdom then the Nickolai books but that’s not the way you should it needs to be shadow and bone trilogy then six of crows and crooked kingdom then king of scars then rule of wolfs.

Amazing!!!!. Well all I can say is that this book is AWSOME and you won’t be disappointed I honestly didn’t think this book was gonna be any good but boy was it AWSOME all I have to say is to not be disappointed by the first chapter the real fun begins in the second chapter

highly recommend. dystopia-esque setting, very captivating with phenomenal writing

A little confusing. I didn’t really understand the setting of this book. Is it modern, medieval fantasy, steampunk future, or colonial style? I am very confused 😐.

Brilliant!. This is the best book series I’ve ever read. I couldn’t put down this book and ended up late to my classes, oh well. The characters are so diverse and well written that I fell in love with each individual. I also enjoyed that this book was fast paced. It was bit predictable, but the things that came to pass that I saw coming had huge twists. One hundred percent recommend, I just wish I could newly read this again!

An awesome book.. This book is utterly fantastic. Kaz Brekker isn’t a hero, and the author doesn’t try to make him one. But somehow, someway, you find yourself rooting and pulling for this Bastard of the Barrel, no matter how dark he gets. 10/10 recommend

Finally some YA that isn’t problematic. Addresses strong themes without romanticizing them e.g. characters are gratuitously flawed, many are victims of some form of oppression and actually suffer from long term trauma (something lots of YA authors seem to think is an aesthetic) and the psychological repercussions that come with it. YA authors think it’s a personality trait to have a dead parent or a tragic backstory, but don’t go beyond a very superficial “underdog take.” In Leigh bardugo’s world, no country / government is fair and just, their leaders have hidden agendas and are a part of a constant struggle for power - much like our own political landscape. I appreciate Bardugo bringing in relatable and objective characterization into a fictional landscape.

wonderful storytelling. the plot, the characters, the conflicts and the world are constructed so wonderfully. i was hanging onto every piece of dialogue, every action sequence, i truly could not get enough! if you want romance, this first book isnt for you. but if you want a team of characters you can root for, and a whole new world you can step into, then definitely give Six of Crows a try!


Gold Standard For YA Fiction: READ IT!. Six of Crows is a magical heist novel, filled with an intricate and fast paced plot, cunning, diverse, and intelligent characters, hilarious banter, genuine relationships, and phenomenal world building, all with high stakes that keep you hooked from the first chapter. While I don’t think it’s absolutely necessary to read the Grisha trilogy to understand SOC, it is definitely beneficial to do so in order to fully understand the dynamics and stakes at hand, and I regret not reading it beforehand. This duology has renewed my hope in YA, and it set my standards in books really high. If you liked the Lunar Chronicles, this is basically the more mature heist version of it. Do yourself a favor and read this amazing book ASAP!!!

Fantastic. What really makes this book is their characters and their interactions. Watching them change and develop was by far my favorite part. Leigh does a really good job on the romantic side as well, not overdoing it (which I really appreciate). The action scenes are great as well as the backstories and setting. Definitely worth your time.

Simply fantastic. Incredible fun with deep and interesting characters. Everything about this book is well-written. It’s a page turner with constant suspense, but accomplishes this without sacrificing the believability or depth of the characters. All six of the main characters are interesting and flawed, but all are lovable and relatable in their own ways. I also love how much this entry expands the world of the Grishaverse (though I rather dislike the term “Grishaverse”, haha; it sounds much sillier than the world of these stories ought to). The politics, belief systems, and conflicts among the different nations are evocative and intriguing.

Great. Forced myself through the first few pages, began to enjoy it.

Let’s see…. As I read the book I was never really able to get attached to the characters (I focus more on characters than plot). For example, if someone was in pain or having a hard time or just dying, I just found myself not really caring or feeling sympathy. When it comes to the plot I would say its really good. I like the magic system as well as the way everything unfolded. However the only problem (aside from the previous one) I had while reading the book was that I felt as If I was reading a movie instead of a book. It was very cinematic. It bothered me a lot cause it seemed as if Leigh was writing a script for a movie instead of narrating a story. It’s hard to explain but I came to the conclusion that because she writes in a cinematic way, it made it hard to sympathy and connect with the characters (especially Kaz. No matter how dark his childhood was, I could not find a lil bit of sympathy towards him. And there was also the age issue. It was hard to ignore the fact that the cast was i think about 16-18 years old). I’d say if her book is adapted into a movie I would really like it cause its my type of genre, but unfortunately I can’t say the same for the book. Im picky too, so take my opinion with a grain of salt.

love love love!. this book was so well done! loved the characters and everything about it!!! by the time i was finished i so badly wanted to be the seventh crow!

Read it. This book made me trust BookTok (not sure if that’s a good thing) but I saw it recommended and decided to buy it. Six of Crows got me into the YA fantasy genre (I haven’t found anything as good as it yet) and it’s honestly one of the best books I’ve ever read. It can be hard to get into but once you’re at the second ‘part’ (which isn’t that far in) it speeds up and becomes more easy to understand. The Shadow and Bone trilogy comes first technically but you don’t have to read it first (I didn’t) because it has nothing to do with the Six of Crows’ characters even though it’s set in the same world. It’s not as good so if you’d rather just read Six of Crows first do it! Anyway, the depth of the characters and the diversity of them was really just what made this Duology. So if you’re wondering what to read and you haven’t read this yet, definitely give it a try!
