Review of Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo (Six of Crows Duology, Book 2)
I haven’t felt the need to write a review as hard as I do for Crooked Kingdom, and it’s a pity I can’t remember if I ever wrote the review of Six of Crows in this blog.
You can always go through this link to my goodreads review, but to sumarize it, I loved SoC.
I finished Crooked Kingdom (CK), just twenty minutes ago, as you can see by the publication date I wasn’t in a hurry to read it, the main reason being that this was it. There won’t more about Kaz nor Inej nor Mathias, CK would be the end of my favourite underrated squad. And I’d be a sad and ugly mess, I just wasn’t mentally ready for that.
I fell in love with the six of them in SoC, with all the diversity and singularity, with the world-development and with Bardugo’s writing and style.
And in CK, I was constantly amazed by the finness and accuracy in which the conclusion was narrated. So many ups and downs and so much happening at the same time. It has everything I always wanted in YA fantasy in the exact proportions I didn’t know I need it.
Never forget that Bardugo’s ulterior motive is to cause pain to her readers, even when she wraps it in such a beautiful envelope. She will go for your heart without second-guessing herself. But it will be worth it, all the suffering and ache, will be worth it.
This book was read in three formats: e-book, audiobook and harcover edition.
