Enter the Grishaverse with the #1 New York Times–bestselling Six of Crows.
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.
“Six of Crows is a twisty and elegantly crafted masterpiece that thrilled me from the beginning to end.” –New York Times-bestselling author Holly Black
“Six of Crows [is] one of those all-too-rare, unputdownable books that keeps your eyes glued to the page and your brain scrambling to figure out what’s going to happen next.” –Michael Dante DiMartino, co-creator of Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra
“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

Read all the books in the Grishaverse!
This book saw it everywhere and talking about a guy named Kaz, who was fantastic and wonderful. Then make the decision to meet the famous six crows, let me tell you that I was impressed by this author, this was the first book I read of her and my expectations. Several told me that I had to read the trilogy Grisha, to be able to enter this world and better understand this world, but when I said this had already been too late, because it was almost in the middle of the book, but I have no problem with that , since of course reading that trilogy the famous Kaz, is the leader of the Club Cuervo and belongs to a group of criminals called the Dregs, in the low funds of the city of Ketterdam. When you make a job proposal that could make you rich, you don’t think twice. This mission is to enter the call the Ice Court, which is a maximum security prison and is impenetrable, once inside will not be able to leave, if you want to get out alive need help, so it brings together five companions to help you enter. Inej, Jasper, Nina, Wylan and Matthias. That this last Matthias, I love him too much, I love him and Nina.
Nina is a character that gives emotion to the history and Matthias also by so much mystery and secrets that keep between them, and I end up stealing the heart each character has a very marked personality, and the atmosphere is very well raised, so much that I could feel that He was there.
Kaz is a cold character, but also very smart, when I saw that the situation had no solution, he always took his ace under the sleeve, and shut my mouth, because I would never have thought all that makes this fantastic character, I need to think more like, thief I think I would have killed myself in the first chapter. But I do not steal my heart, but still this writer has an extraordinary world, at no time I found boring or very slow.
I can’t wait to read the second part and the Grisha trilogy. Highly recommended this book. Inspiration with this book, I share this recipe of simple cookies with royal icing in the style of the raven Club.
