“Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine. The purpose is to spotlight upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.
My pick for this week: Crooked Kingdom (Six of crows #2) by Leigh Bardugo
September 27th, 2016
What it’s about:
Kaz Brekker and his crew have just pulled off a heist so daring even they didn’t think they’d survive. But instead of divvying up a fat reward, they’re right back to fighting for their lives. Double-crossed and left crippled by the kidnapping of a valuable team member, the crew is low on resources, allies, and hope. As powerful forces from around the world descend on Ketterdam to root out the secrets of the dangerous drug known as jurda parem, old rivals and new enemies emerge to challenge Kaz’s cunning and test the team’s fragile loyalties. A war will be waged on the city’s dark and twisting streets―a battle for revenge and redemption that will decide the fate of magic in the Grisha world.
Why I am waiting for this release:
- Six of Crows, the first part in this duology, was one of my top 3 books read in 2015.
- I ADORE the world of the Grisha and I can’t wait to return to it.
- It’s a crew of 6 misfit criminals pulling of impossible heists. What’s not to love?
- These characters are so well-developed and intriguing and the amount of love I have for each and every one of them is just crazy.
