Review quote

Bardugo has obviously spent a lot of time here, and is sure footed as she leads us through the twists and turns of this engaging adventure. There is enough action, danger and romance to satisfy even the most jaded of readers * School Librarian * Unlike anything I've ever read * Veronica Roth, author of the Divergent trilogy on The Grisha Trilogy * This is basically Ocean's Eleven set in a Game of Thrones-esque world ... The result is a pacey read with electric prose and well-drawn characters * THE INDEPENDENT * Fast, thrilling heist fantasy, boasting a brilliant new cast of characters * METRO * Six of Crows is impossible to put down. Bardugo is a master at an ensemble cast, and it is a joy to see her wonderfully crafted characters come to life ... The fantastic plot is fast moving and full of twists and turns, but it is the fate of the characters that really draws the reader in. Bardugo has an incredible imagination and Six of Crows showcases her writing at its very best. * BOOKTRUST * Cracking page-turner with a multi-ethnic band of misfits with differing sexual orientations who satisfyingly, believably jell into a family * KIRKUS REVIEWS * It's like THE HUNGER GAMES meets POTTER meets TWILIGHT meets LORD OF THE RINGS meets GAME OF THRONES; basically epic magical fantasy but completely for grown-ups * STYLIST on The Grisha Trilogy * SIX OF CROWS is a twisty and elegantly crafted masterpiece that thrilled me from beginning to end * Holly Black, author of THE DARKEST PART OF THE FOREST *show more
