Six Of Crows Book Review


Let me just say; this book was nothing like I expected. Gangs, thieves, gamblers… Not my thing. But boy, did I like it. The first 100-150 pages were so slow-paced, I already admitted I was planning on DNFing it. But then I was genuinely starting to root for the characters. I loved their backstories, their cultures, their races. I took me a while to understand what a Grisha was and all that but then everything clicked into place and I was overtaken by this extraordinary roller coaster of deep emotions. I loved Wylan and Jesper’s taunting and teasing and bickering (their little flirtling at the end didn’t slip past me). I previously pointed out that my main ship throughout this book was definitely Matthias and Nina (falling-in-love-with-the-enemy is my favorite cliche). Kaz’s past literally shattered my heart; I loved how his every move was fueled by his vengeance and retribution for his brother. And then Inej saying “i will have you without armor, Kaz Brekker, or I will not have you at all.” hit me so damn hard.

I LOVED EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER UNCONDITIONALLY. If I had to choose, though, my favorite would probably be Jesper. His character is so hilarious. He’s like this ADHD kid with a big heart. I loved the little bits of mottoes and slogans the Dregs had

No Funerals
No Mourners




Criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker has been offered wealth beyond his wildest dreams. But to claim it, he’ll have to pull off a seemingly impossible heist:

Break into the notorious Ice Court
(a military stronghold that has never been breached)

Retrieve a hostage
(who could unleash magical havoc on the world)

Survive long enough to collect his reward
(and spend it)

Kaz needs a crew desperate enough to take on this suicide mission and dangerous enough to get the job done – and he knows exactly who: six of the deadliest outcasts the city has to offer. Together, they just might be unstoppable – if they don’t kill each other first.

    Awesome review! I really liked this book but the beginning was a bit too slow for me. Probably I wouldn’t have felt it so much if I read The Grisha trilogy first, don’t know. But other than that I loved it! And the second one is amazing too! Hope you enjoy it!

      When I first started the book, I literally thought it was like a second book in a series or something, although I knew it wasn’t. Even if SOC is sort of related to the Grisha Trilogy, I thought it was essential to at least clarify a couple of things at the beginning. I found it to be a little vague. And I will definitely be reading the second book! Everyone says it’s better than the first one.

        I felt the same way… I was a bit lost, than I kinda got the point but it was still missing something. Which is The Grisha Trilogy. I understand that it’s not necessary to read it before, but I believe that it helps a lot… Hope you enjoy it! 😀
