The following is an honest review of Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo and my suggested age rating.
Synopsis of Six of Crows
Kaz Brekker, the infamous criminal mastermind is in the heart of Ketterdam: a hub of trade and crime all for the prize of money. He is given the chance at the heist of a lifetime. It’s so much money that you’d be stupid to refuse; but it’s a job he can’t do alone. Kaz has to gather up his five friends who are just as mischievous as him. Jesper is a sharpshooter that doesn’t’t quit. Inej, also known as Wraith, is able to lurk in the shadows as Kaz’s spy. Nina is a Heartrender who can use her magic to end or mend a life. Wylan is a master at explosives and unlikely escapes. And Mattahias is a prisoner and foreigner with the motivation of revenge. Kaz and his crew might be able to pull this one off as long as they don’t kill each other first.
Review of Six of Crows
Big surprise: I loved this book. I loved everything about Shadow and Bone and The Grishaverse and was so excited to dive into Ketterdam with the Crows. Right off the bat my favorite thing about this book is the characters. They are all so different from each other in the best way possible. Everyone’s banter is hilarious and definably makes this book.
One thing that stood out for me is how Six of Crows seemed equally plot and character driven. Leigh’s writing is so refreshing. It’s easy to understand and enjoyable to read. I’m currently reading Crooked Kingdom and am slightly nervous for my heart haha.
If you haven’t read any of the Grishaverse books yet I’d suggest starting with Shadow and Bone then Six of Crows. While there wasn’t any spoilers for Shadow and Bone in SoC I think S&B contains more world building and will give you a better idea of the Grishaverse.
I gave Six of Crows 5/5 stars on Goodreads.
Age Rating of Six of Crows
I would give Six of Crows an Age Rating of 13 and up. There is violence, abuse, romance, and mild language.
