Let me tell you, yes, it is true but it may not have started off that well…
MY RATING: 4 STARS
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
Kaz’s crew is the only thing that might stand between the world and destruction—if they don’t kill each other first.
We all have seen this book on different blogs a hundred times and honestly, 99% of them were gushing about it.
Kaleena @Reader Voracious recently posted why this book did not work for her and when I saw her post, I saw so many similarities with what was going on in my head while reading this book and I agreed with her.
There was a lot of information overload on the beginning and I didn’t think I would end up liking the book but, guess what? I did!
I loved the book once I finally got into it. There were so many twists and turns and just so many things that I couldn’t predict. Every time I’d think that okay, this is it, there would be something new up Leigh Bardugo’s sleeve and I loved that!
I was guessing everything that was happening and was on my toes the entire time! It was a fabulous and wonderful journey even though it was a little dull in the starting!
We learnt so much about each of the characters from their back stories to what they wished to do in the future and in the small timeframe of some 450 pages, we saw so much character development that I was left aghast!
I fell in love with all of the characters and now, I can not decide which one is my favourite but I hope I can once I am done with The Crooked Kingdom.
Each character is very different yet they all share some similar qualities and all of the ti comes together to make a unique book which ended up being everything I was promised when I first started it!
Anyways, what did you all think of my post? Are you all going to read this book? Have you already read it? what did you think about it? Was it worth the hype surrounding it? Tell me in the comments below.
