If you are looking for an answer as to whether you should pick Leigh Bardugo’s, Six of Crows or not then my answer is A BIG YES and that you shouldn’t wait to meet KAZ, our central character and his team of outlaws. Let me start the Book review of Six of crows with a quote straight from the book
“A gambler, a convict, a wayward son, a lost Grisha, a Suli girl who had become a killer, a boy from the Barrel who had become something worse.”
This quote perfectly sums the framework of our book as these are the literal six of crows that you will be spending time with in this book.

Read on The Review
I absolutely loved the book in fact it is definitely going to be one of my all time favourite books from hereon. I don’t even care whether the second book would deliver on the quality put forward by First book or not because i am that impressed and caught up in the hangover of this book
Its exactly as how it says in the cover and promotional materials that the book is about Six outcasts on a heist. The book takes you to a world different and yet not far from realty where the hardships and struggles of life have sharpened and roughened our six characters so much that the thin line between good and bad has blurred out. The book takes you on an adrenaline crazy journey along with these six characters who have taken upon an impossible task of freeing a prisoner kept at a high security prison. The world is filled with supernatural elements and people. so get ready to taste an unique and twisted journey
Everything about the book was appealing and perfect for me. I guess what would single handedly lure you to this book is its main character KAZ. Talk about dark, brooding male protagonist and the character of KAZ simply takes it to next level. I could literally build a temple for this character because i am that obsessed and tempted by his character. So you can imagine how well the author has created the character.
Through mere words, you are attracted and swayed by a fictional character. The buildup is so powerful that you cant simply walk off from the book. The best part of the book is the strength and the credibility of each of the characters. This is one of the books where characters rule every page. Each character is well balanced and strongly crafted
Apart from the strong six supporting characters everything else too works smoothly and effectively. The plot moves at a very good and steady space with lots of twists and turns to keep it engaging and exciting and then there is the whole sub plots that add to the thickness of the overall story and never once overlapping the main story. Each scenes and action sequences are well described and amazingly pictured through the words
For concluding the Book review of Six Crows i would say that this is a perfect pick if you love some action, thrills and moreover if dark brooding is your type then do not look anywhere else.
