No Mourners, No Funerals.
Six of Crows was always in my eyes as a to-be-read book until I finally gave it a read after my long reading break. And now that I have finished it, I am writing this spoiler free review at 1am in the morning.
Six of Crows is set in the Grisha World, written extremely well and in probably one of the best story-unfolding manner by the author named Leigh Bardugo. It is about a gang of six dangerous criminals formed by the bastard of the barrel, a very clever thief & my favourite character in the novel – Kaz Brekker. The motto of the gang is to find Bo-Yul-Bayur, the genius mastermind responsible for the creation of a very powerful addictive drug called Jurda Parem.
I’ll give this book a 5 star, yes you saw that right – a 5 star. This would be because fantasy books all have amazing story lines, but this one apart from that gives you a very unpredictable turn of events throughout the novel. There were times I could feel my mouth open into an oval shape and just be like ‘whoaaa’.
Apart from the story line, it also gives a vast detail into each characters past, moods and motives. It’s almost like by the end of the novel, you know enough about each and every character. It almost feels like you know them in and out. And the bonding of all the characters was just beautiful. One could see how the characters felt about each other and the way they further developed different feelings for each.
I almost wanna open every detail of the book and write all the fantastic details that I found out to be truly breathtaking right here. I will have to say, in a very long time I’ve read such an outstanding fantasy novel. I cannot wait to binge-read Crooked Kingdom, #2 in the Six of Crows series.
This novel is definitely a must read for the fantasy genre readers. It will not disappoint you at all. TRUST ME. Also, you will not have to read the Grisha series to read the Six of Crows series. Infact, after reading this duology, I might consider reading the Grisha Trilogy.
