Six of Crows is set in the same world as Bardugo’s Grisha trilogy and gives us another glimpse into this magical and often brutal place. This time the background is Ketterdam, a busy harbor town with criminality around every corner. One is the criminal genius Kaz Brekker, and he’s just gotten the biggest heist ever. Now all he need is some people to help him….
Well, the story is all over the place and there wasn’t a character I really connected with and cared about. Nina was way to obesedd with Matthias, a man who’s work is to murder grishas (which she is). Talk about liking to playing with the fire. The part they tries to get him out of prison though was kind of amusing. Only the spy Inej made me excited to read about what happens to her in this crazy heist. Also about the heist, it took forever to happen and when it finally happen it wasn’t as magnificent as I had hopped for, which was a shame.
But overall a pretty okay story, well the ending was nothing to cheer about, but as with my experience with the Grisha trilogy it wasn’t until the third book I really came to love the story. So there’s still time for these guys to make a better relationship with me.
