Sometimes you wake up. Sometimes the fall kills you.
And sometimes, when you fall, you fly.

This book sure as hell gave so much more than what I expected. And I won’t lie about it, the best part is Nikolai Lantsov 🙂 And I’ve been reading the updates lately, I’m so thrilled to know he gets to have a book all to his own.
This book series never ceases to get me turning page per page. Each time I read I go like, “Okay, just one more chapter and then I’ll sleep.” I didn’t even realize I was already halfway through the book.
I’m almost sad I’m down to the last book of the trilogy. I enjoy Leigh Bardugo’s writing style so much. I look forward to more Grishaverse materials ❤
My first thought when I picked up this book from the shelf was, “Hey, here’s something dark.” And when I began to read, it actually turned out to be a little bit darker than I thought it was.
This book has an interesting plot in that it gives you not one, not two, but three heroines. It has you wondering who’s gonna win that prized crown, and when it ends you can’t quite wait to read the next.
The story does take a while to form, but the whole book will have you reading from every page that is filled with intrigues and plot twists.
It was the end twist that really got me wanting to read the second installation.
Go ahead. Grab this book, and tell me who think will win the crown 😉
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 😉
As epic as the first book is, but a lot more sinister and heartbreaking. I was trying not to finish it too soon, and yet I couldn’t keep myself from turning page after page after page of the second half of the Six of Crows duology.
When I finished the book and put it down, I knew I would not read anything of the same substance again, unless author Leigh Bardugo decides to add another continuation to the Dregs’ story. I really hope she would!
