I was so excited to read the book that started it all after finishing the second installation of Six of Crows duology, Crooked Kingdom. I have to say, I was really glued to the book and actually did buy all three books at once. It had me turning page after page, and I love that it is not like your typical YA book (kudos to Leigh Bardugo’s writing style for keeping the cheesy moments in check :D).
But if I were to be completely honest, the one major reason why I was hooked is because of the villain we all love to love and hate altogether – THE DARKLING! He’s something else entirely! This is one villain to make you question which side you wanna be on.
I’d highly recommend this book for every YA lit fan out there. You’ll need to read this on your long free hours because it will be hard to put down, but I know you’ll want to sneak into the pages on those short breaks 😉
