Crooked Kingdom: A Sequel to Six of Crows
Crooked Kingdom: A Sequel to Six of Crows | Leigh Bardugo
The highly anticipated sequel to the thrilling #1 "New York Times-"bestselling "Six of Crows."Kaz Brekker and his crew have just pulled off a heist so daring even they didn't think they'd survive. But instead of divvying up a fat reward, they're right back to fighting for their lives. Double-crossed and badly weakened, the crew is low on resources, allies, and hope. As powerful forces from around the world descend on Ketterdam to root out the secrets of the dangerous drug known as" jurda parem," old rivals and new enemies emerge to challenge Kaz's cunning and test the team's fragile loyalties. A war will be waged on the city's dark and twisting streets a battle for revenge and redemption that will decide the fate of the Grisha world."

Mehso-so

After reading the Grishaverse series I found Crooked Kingdom slightly more interest than Six of Crows but still not my favorite. I really liked the final scheme but found the beginning 3/4 of the book packing. I might be the only one here, but I don‘t like Kaz and I think Nikolai is a way more interesting schemer! What do you think? Who is the master of schemes Nikolai or Kaz?

julesG I haven't read all of the Grisha trilogy yet, so my answer has to be Kaz. 5d

julesG @Deifio No, the #GhostCat is the goddess in the house. Shadow is rather more of a pawn. Or, to use my friend's words about her rather stupid cat: the light's on, but there's nobody home. 😁 It's not that bad, but it took him close to an hour to realise I was making a ball of paper crinkle with my foot and there was no dangerous animal hiding inside. 🤪 1mo

This book was so much fun! I‘ve been “in the middle” of reading it all year, and I finally broke through my book slump to do it. The characters are some of my favorites from stories I‘ve read in the past few years and the ending was so completely satisfying!

I didn't manage to visit any bookshops on my recent trip to the desert, but I did visit the World Famous Crochet Museum. And I finished the tagged book. The museum was quirky and fun and perfectly desert-like, but the book was pretty meh. Too many gratuitous twists and turns, characters acting inconsistently/out of character, and a couple of scenes that just made me roll my eyes. Disappointing follow-up to Six of Crows.

ImperfectCJ I just looked at this and realized that it appears that I'm giving the Crochet Museum a poor rating, which is not at all the case. Just to clarify, the museum gets a thumbs up, the book...not so much. 3mo
ljuliel I‘ve never heard of the Crochet Museum . Gotta go look it up and see if they have any photos online. 3mo
ImperfectCJ @ljuliel It's very cute. It's in a converted drive-through photo place. They have a website with a lot of photos, but I didn't really get how tiny it was until we visited. 3mo

Dewey's Hour 9: After summer squash and eggs, coffee and chocolate, LaCroix and popcorn, with a warm breeze blowing in through the window, I stretched out to read on the couch...and crashed. I didn't even realize I'd fallen asleep until I found myself struggling into wakefulness through the streets of Ketterdam. Probably time to turn on the ceiling fan and take an intentional nap.

Dewey's Readathon Opening Survey:

1) I'm in San Diego, California
2) Most looking forward to: All of them? :-)
3) I don't really have any snacks lined up, but the UPS driver dropped off a big box of chocolate the other day, so that will probably make an appearance.
4) About myself: I'm 3+ inches shorter than my 14yo daughter.
5) This is my first Dewey's since I joined Litsy. I'm excited!

Man, that book made me laugh so hard, then broke my heart into a million pieces. Took me two chapters to get in, but then I read the whole thing in a day (good thing I'm sick in bed and have nothing better to do). I want more! The twists and turns where amazingly done, you never knew what was coming and albeit some of the surprises were a bit unbelievable, it was never too over the top to throw me out of the story. That ending tho ... 🙈 😭

It's embarrassing how long it takes me to pick up sequels in a series, but I'm finally getting around to reading this. Now I'm just wondering if I should re-read Six of Crows first, since I can barely remember anything besides the names ...
[Currently listening to: Blood // Water by grandson]

julesG I'm also reluctant to read sequels. I'm reading Six of Crows with my kids right now. It's my second reread of it. I still haven't read Crooked Kingdom, mainly because it means that the story will be over. 4mo
scripturient-ink @julesG I think my problem is that I start way too many series at the same time and then never get around to finishing them because there are so many other books I also want to read ... And I'm always a bit scared of second books in general because they tend to disappoint me a little. But hey, maybe your kids will love Six of Crows so much that you'll have to read Crooked Kingdom with them as well (; 4mo

I really enjoyed this book, but if you‘ve bought the collector‘s edition and put it on the shelf without reading it then please pull it down and check that you have a page 431. At least a few copies have a serious misprint, including mine and both the replacements I was sent, and I haven‘t seen much about it.

Smrloomis That cover is lovely but a missing page is a serious problem! 🤨 4mo
SupTeaReadBooks @Smrloomis yeah, I love the cover and all the extra artwork, but not happy. Hopefully there‘ll be a reprint, in the meantime I guess I have the paperback. 4mo

Ugh why did no one TELL ME this book could be so utterly beautiful & heartbreaking?! While Kaz & Inej continued to be my fave, the rest of the ensemble had stories that definitely engrossed me, & the plot was utterly spell-binding. A beautifully written story about how monsters can be heroes too ♥️. ★★★★☆.

Caved and read this in one sitting, and I‘ve been forced to face some home truths about myself, because me as a writer = I‘ve got this huge sprawling ‘verse specifically so I can write the genre/characters I feel like writing, but me as a reader = WHAT DO YOU MEAN ALL YOUR FUTURE BOOKS AREN‘T ABOUT THE CROWS? HOW VERY DARE!!!

Anyway, it turns out that what I thought was a random read falls under theme (necromancy), so go #teamstoker #scarathlon

So I finished reading the second part of the Six of Crows! Despite the frightening volume of the book, it read quickly! The adventures of favorite characters continue! I love the world that came up with Leigh Bardugo, charismatic characters, each of which has its own zest! I'm also crazy about Russian names some characters: Nina Zenik, Dunyasha, Genya Safin, Zoya Nazyalensky!

After the breathtaking cliffhanger of Six, the crew is out of the frying pan and into the fire as they plan to steal a Spider. And this time, it‘s personal as Kaz also works to get his revenge.

I didn‘t mention this in my last review, but I adored every narrator for both these stories. And this book was equally as thrilling and epic as the first.

I‘m sad the duology is over, but I‘ve apparently got lots more Grisha verse to dive into! 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌗

An amazing follow up to Six of Crows (UNTIL THE END WHEN MY HEART WAS RIPPED OUT AND STOMPED ON) This one was actually less action and more scheming and planning. You learned more backgrounds of the other characters which I enjoyed. Some points did bore me a bit, but overall I loved it. I truly enjoyed this duology and I will be buying it for my personal collection. Tho, I will NOT be trusting Bardugo with my heart again, She broke it badly.

Shley9225 The whole time you were raving about Nina and Matthias I was like “oh dear she doesn‘t know what‘s coming...” 😭😭😭 such a sad moment 6mo
Sweetkokoro @Shley9225 My heart was shattered!!! I am so broken over this. It could have been anyone else and I would have been fine but these two, why did it have to be them. For me, loving these two, it was more then a sad moment, it was like my world had ended, thats how much their story meant to me. 6mo

Sweetkokoro @Shley9225 I should have known, I have this horrible gift of attaching myself to the ones who never make it. I had to stop reading to pull myself together. And when it was brought up again, the floodgates opened all over again. It was heartbreaking. 6mo

I loved this book! Like book 1, this book continually shifts perspectives between the 6 main characters, and again the author builds a cohesive story where nothing feels left out & delivers a fantastic adventure! By the end of these two books I feel like I know these characters so well, and I will miss them! This book was over 500 pages, & I wish it had been twice as long. If you‘re wanting a fantasy adventure, this is it. Absolutely loved it.
