Title: Six Of Crows
Author: Leigh Bardugo (Texas Teen Book Festival Author)
Reviewed by: Emily
Once upon a time, I read Leigh Bardugo’s Grisha trilogy and fell in love. All too soon, I had to say goodbye. Now, at long last, I can return to the world of Ravka and Fjerda.
However, you don’t need to have read the Grisha trilogy to read Six Of Crows. It’s a whole new cast of characters, and it builds on the other side of the world from the Grisha trilogy.
The five person point of view was artfully pulled off. Each character received attention and were developed equally. The use of third person point-of-view was a good choice both stylistically and so that the reader can keep track of all the characters. After the first few chapters, I felt connected to the characters; they all had their idiosyncrasies and different perspectives of the story. Additionally, I loved all six of the main characters. They are far from perfect, but the fact that they are three dimensional, flawed people is what makes them so likable.
Six of Crows is a dark crime set in a fantasy world inspired by Tsarist Russia. In other words, absolutely amazing. But the best part is that Leigh Bardugo will be at the Texas Teen Book Festival This Year!!!
