The first volume in Leigh’s Dregs duology, set in the Grishaverse, is a heart-wrenching combination of caper novel and character studies. Think “Leverage” meets “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” but in an alternate magical Russia. Six of Crows has one of the best opening sentences ever, kicking off a grand magical heist adventure with characters readers will be thrilled to cheer for.

"No funerals. No mourners."

Six of Crows is that perfect mix of magic, chaos, and adventure. Think of the movie Ocean's Eleven, now throw in a pinch of magic and you have a hint of what awaits you in this novel. Kaz Brekker and his gang of misfits have an impossible heist to pull off, and it's more than money on the line for them to succeed. It's a book that get's you hooked from the first chapter, it had me from the first page. The Dregs come out of the book to share their close calls and small victories with you. You get pulled in and when the book ends you can't help but want another helping of Kaz Brekker and the Dregs. -Victoria

Summer 2018 Reading Group Indie Next List


“An impossible heist, a fantasy world, and a crew of six very different people brought together in their quest for a life-changing fortune. Quietly dazzling in its complexity, Leigh Bardugo’s newest is the type of book that makes the rest of the world drop away while reading it. This book will consume you in the way only a brilliant fantasy book can. With characters that felt so real I wanted to meet them, and an action packed plot with plenty of subterfuge, intrigue, and complicated relationships, this book will quickly vault to the top of your favorite books list and firmly entrench itself there… at least until the sequel.”

Description


A #1 New York Times-bestseller

Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can't pull it off alone...

A convict with a thirst for revenge.

A sharpshooter who can't walk away from a wager.

A runaway with a privileged past.

A spy known as the Wraith.

A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums.

A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes.

Six dangerous outcasts. One impossible heist. Kaz's crew is the only thing that might stand between the world and destruction if they don't kill each other first.

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo returns to the breathtaking world of the Grishaverse in this unforgettable tale about the opportunity and the adventure of a lifetime.

There's conflict between morality and amorality and an appetite for sometimes grimace-inducing violence that recalls the Game of Thrones series. But for every bloody exchange there are pages of crackling dialogue and sumptuous description. Bardugo dives deep into this world, with full color and sound. If you're not careful, it'll steal all your time. The New York Times Book Review
