I personally would love to see some of them be bit reluctant to get together again, especially Jesper and Wylan if they have settled in nicely and are running the Van Eck business (and Inej who is busy hunting down slavers), just so the gang could then realize that maybe they have missed each other and get excited again. As for Inej and Kaz, I want conflict. I want Kaz to be moody around Inej when they first meet again after so long and then lash out at her because he has tried to contact her and she hasn’t answered. Maybe Inej could even have a new love interest? I don’t mean like a serious relationship, just her having bonded closely with someone else while slaver-hunting, someone she can be relaxed around and joke and flirt with. That would certainly be exciting. I would also LOVE it if Inej had been slightly drifting away from her faith or struggling with it because she has had to do so many awful, maybe unexpectedly terrible things in order to hunt and murder slavers that she now feels she doesn’t deserve the Saints. For Nina, I’m aware that she has a larger role to play now so I’m not sure how she will get together with the others. However, I would love to see some more bonding between Inej and Nina. I also really like Nina’s chemistry with Kaz and, don’t hate on me, but I actually shipped them when I read the first book even though I knew they would never be even remotely interested in each other. But more friendship, bantery moments between them would be nice, too. Also I want someone else to mention Matthias besides Nina! Maybe Kaz?

Maybe the central conflict having to do with the Council of Tides. There’s still so much mystery surrounding them and I’d love to know more about them! Pekka Rollins might even return?Hopefully no more dying, as well. I don’t think I’d be able to handle that.

In terms of ships, I’d love to see more progress between Inej and Kaz, and I really want to read about Inej’s adventures out on the seas. I’d love to see Jesper working on improving his powers and Wylan slowly getting used to taking over his father’s role a bit. Also just wesper being a power couple!!!

I’ll love anything that happens in a possible third six of crows, unless if they all get killed off. That’s not allowed 🙁

Thanks for the request! Here goes!

First off, I’m slightly unsure of what you mean by “writing techniques”. Do you want what she does with the characters, the plot and the world, or how she develops her writing style? I’m going to try to do both. Sorry if it wasn’t exactly what you wanted.

Bardugo is skilled at setting the mood and atmosphere for her piece. Bardugo’s first line serves to set the tone. (It’s “Joost had two problems — the moon and his moustache”, in case you forgot.) It’s funny, memorable and immediately makes the reader wonder how, exactly, are these two things connected. This sets up the banter and humour created between the main cast of characters so it doesn’t feel out of place with the gritty setting of Ketterdam. It screams “there will be humour” but does it well enough that it doesn’t feel too forced. Paired with Joost’s (kind of) death in the first chapter, this gives a sense of the ruthlessness and cruelty of Bardugo’s world (though it feels more like a prologue than a first chapter). (She does this in Shadow and Bone too with the fairytale-like quality of her prologue, telling readers that there would be mythology and folklore aplenty to come, but didn’t deliver as much.)

Next, she’s very good at revealing backstory. The snippets shown in the first book often stem from a situation happening to the character in the present, thus triggering the memories associated to similar events. For example, Inej told us about her time at the Menagerie when she passed it. This feels natural and not at all like an info-dump because it is so similar to how we remember things in real life. Our surroundings incite us to remember things. Also, when Kaz passes out in the prison wagon she reveals what happened with Pekka Rollins and hence why Kaz has such a strong aversion to touch and the reason for his PTSD, also explaining his fainting.

She is good at foreshadowing. From the little mentions of Jordie dotted through the early Kaz POV chapters to the way Inej waxes eloquent on Kaz’s appearance, hints of what is to come are scattered throughout the book. This not only stops a reader from feeling cheated after a plot twist (because there were previous clues to back it up) but makes a reader engage with the book and read it more thoroughly so as not to miss any clues.

She uses POV chapters to create tension. Especially during the Ice Court heist, Bardugo switches POVs every time something goes really wrong for that character. This leaves the reader guessing that character’s fate until their next POV chapter and drives the plot forwards. Also, she uses the POVs to maintain her pacing. Every time something less interesting has to happen with a character, she switches POVs to someone who’s doing something and mentions what the other character is doing in the meantime.

Thanks for reading!

Who is your favorite point of view to read from in Six of Crows?

Kaz for sure. His brain is so much fun to pick through and just see his thinking process. Also, it’s really where we get to see how he’s perceived and how he really is. People view him like this all-powerful, genius crime boss, but at the end of the day he’s a 17-year-old kid with a lot of trauma.

This will be problematic, especially how I didn’t just cry in the Crooked Kingdom, I felt my heart and soul breaking (and no I’m not overly dramatic), but I’ll say Crooked Kingdom *sigh*.

THERE WOULD BE SPOILERS FOR CROOKED KINGDOM! Keep reading on your responsibility!

Why? Both books are a perfect mix of action, fantasy, and romance. But even though the first book had moments of keeping me on edge of my seat, it wasn’t as near as the Crooked Kingdom did. The first book set up the plot for the second one and you think you can predict what will happen, how the will end look like. Then you start reading the Crooked Kingdom and you realize you couldn’t be more wrong.

Everything is more brutal, more unexpected, and yet more beautiful. If you thought romances were great in SOC, in CC your heart was blooming at one chapter, and on another, you felt breaking it completely. And not just on Helnik, I felt like that for all main couples. Kaz’s quote about coming for Inej even if she couldn’t walk and be Wraith anymore, making plans for saving his girl… Jesper going with Wylan and being there for him just so he could later blow up everything with Kuwai… I didn’t start reading this duology for romance. But the characterization of characters and that their romances ended up being more important to me.

Proof of that is I felt like I was Nina, I think I’ll start cry right now when I remember these feelings while reading 37 – 41 chapters. I think there’s no better way to describe how good the book was when YOU FELT YOU WERE THERE. Also parts of Kaz’s plans that reminded me of some scenes from La Casa De Papel (Money Heist), I LOVED THAT.

Everything about the Crooked Kingdom is great, I didn’t mention the ending before, but even without King of Scars duology I felt like it gave all characters quite good closure (cough Matthias and Nina cough). Still, without Six of Crows, Crooked Kingdom would never be this much good to me. It can’t stand alone without SOC, just like with Rule of Wolves and King of Scars.

I just completed reading Crooked Kingdom (from just I mean yesterday LOL) and I don’t know what exactly to say about it.

Everyone loved Crooked Kingdom, even more than Six of Crows, literally every video I watched on YouTube said that they loved the second book more than the first one.

If you don’t know about these books or forget about it (How can you forget it? Seriously!), Limited lever little bit about it. It’s a story about six people, hence, Six of crows. They all had had a bad past (from ‘bad’ I mean the worst you can imagine)though Jesper didn’t have a bad past he just took wrong decisions and ended up with them.

So, let me introduce you to all the characters, first Kaz, Kaz is always the mastermind of all the plans and he is always a hundred steps ahead of the readers and all the characters in the books.

Second, Inej, she is the most emotionally strongest and optimistic character in the book, she is the main person who executes the plan, though every plan gets complete by teamwork, she always plays the key role, no one can see her come and go, although Kaz can sense it.

Third, Nina, (you should know that I am just putting them serial wise to organise this messy first book review of mine) she is a Grisha, Grisha are people with magical powers, every Grisha has specific powers and then they are put into a certain group with people who have same powers as them. Nina is a heartrender they have the power of dealing with bodies and they can slow your heartbeat put you in a coma and can keep you warm.

Fourth, Jesper, as I told you before he didn’t have a childhood which you will say is sad. He lived in a village-ish place and then his father had sent him to a University where he lost all his money in gambling. He is a Sharpshooter and never misses a shot.

Fifth, Mathias, he is a Witch Hunter he hunts Grisha and thinks they all are unnatural. He is the one who captures Nina. He is very strong and he is the one who helped them with the map of Fjerda (his country) and in the second book rescues Jesper and a boy.

Now, last but not the least, Wylan. He is the son of a very rich merchant but for a reason comes to the barrel (the place where mostly all characters live, it’s a slum) he is so great at many things, he draws the plans and makes bombs and other deals with all the chemical things.

The first book consists of the heist they do and the second book is the emotional breakthrough of the characters.

As for me, I like the first book more (yeah, yeah I know)even after reading the first book I realised how hard their life is. I was on the verge of crying after reading the first book I think the other book just expanded all those things written in the first book but of course, we need it. Only because of the second book we realised how much of humans they were, how because of the situations, they became what they are and how because of the society people become bad.

At last, the only thing I am thinking while writing this is how because of corruption and abysmal situations people can become bad. I can’t stop but think what if they were in a good place, then how would their life be?

Now, I am ending this review with a line I heard from a Ted talk- “Some people are born with a gun and the environment makes them pull the trigger.”

I’m not trying to get views on this answer cause I know who would read this much. I wrote this because of myself. I wanted this to be stored somewhere, that what I felt when I completed reading this duology. So I am doing this for myself and I don’t think it’s going to get views also so it’s ok.

You could read Bardugo’s Grisha Trilogy, but in general Six of Crows is good to read as a stand-alone. I read it without having read any of the other books first and enjoyed it just the same.

Also, reading The Grisha Trilogy can be a bit of a turn-off depending on what you’re looking for in the books. Whilst Six of Crows is a fast-paced, witty, well-written and original fantasy heist novel, you can tell that Shadow and Bone (the opening book of the Trilogy) was Bardugo’s first real book. It’s fairly clichéd, though there are some good twists, and quite a few of the characters are stereotypes (the loyal best friend to love interest, the dark-but-beautiful brooder, the sarcastically-charming prince) though you do grow to love them. It’s a very different book to Six of Crows, though could be very good for some readers.

Unfortunately the protagonist of the Trilogy, Alina Starkov, is a total Mary Sue. She has very little character (bar being generically sassy) and her entire personality revolves around her power. She goes on about not being beautiful until… she realised she was beautiful all along. How original. Also, she’s a Special Girl, being the most powerful Grisha in all of Ravka and the only person able to defeat the Shadow Fold. (Did I mention the Special White Hair?)

Not only this, but the love triangle (square? There’s four of them this time) is pretty weak. You know from the start who she’ll end up with, leaving you to wonder for the rest of the time why three gorgeous guys are mooning around this incredibly bland girl.

Sorry, this was a bit of a rant. To sum it up, Six of Crows doesn’t really need any background knowledge to understand. You should be good reading it straight off.

(And to all the people who disagree with me about the Grisha Trilogy: that’s fine. You’re entitled to your views. Some people like that kind of stuff. I know I do — hell, I even write SoC and Grisha fanfiction! — but though I love it, I know it has its flaws.)

I would definitely recommend reading the Six of Crows duology before the Grisha trilogy—if you were only interested in the duology and felt you needed to read the trilogy as a stepping-stone—as the trilogy can be very off-putting, being extremely different.

Shadow and Bone is a good jumping-off point if you like that style of writing or are prepared to endure boredom, but Six of Crows does a good job of being a starting point.

Six of Crows is much more fast-paced and in my opinion, well-written than the Grisha trilogy. Some ideas and characters from Shadow and Bone are in Six of Crows, but not having a grasp of them beforehand is either solved by a bit of explaining which the duology does, or is minor enough so that it doesn’t mess around with reading. There is quite a bit of a learning curve in Six of Crows that may be better handled in Shadow and Bone, but overall I’d reccomend just going to read Six of Crows first, if that’s what you came for.

EDIT: So, at some point, the question changed, not really sure how (maybe it was merged). My answer was in response to the question, “Is the book ‘six of crows’ worth reading”.

Ok, so the answer to your question really depends on what your definition is of a book that is “worth reading”.

Six of Crows isn’t great literature.

Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, I can tell you that I personally enjoyed this book very much. Most of the time I’m rather picky when it comes to YA books, and while this one certainly has its problems and cliches, I found that they never really got in the way. The setting of the book is well done (in my opinion) and the whole mafia/underworld vibe Bardugo creates surprisingly fits in with the books fantasy elements. She’s certainly a creative author. The characters are interesting enough and the plot is just fine minus a few odd moments where I felt the author didn’t really think this far ahead or just didn’t care to make this bit fit with that. Mostly small problems though.

So, I guess what I’m trying to say is this: Six of Crows is “worth reading” if your just looking for a fun read that doesn’t require much concentration. It is basically the book equivalent of a summer blockbuster. But, if you’re the kind of person who would rather watch that new (insert name) biopic or David Lynch movie instead of the newest Mission Impossible, this book may not be your favorite.

Hope this helps 🙂

No, he isn’t.

Contrary to popular belief, Wylan isn’t innocent, nor is he a baby.

He might’ve been at the starting, but we should remember that he very much participated in the crimes committed by the Crows through the course of the two books.

Some badass stuff Wylan has done:

and many, many more.

Wylan is probably the most innocent of the Crows, but on average? Nope. He is a demolitions expert who had no qualms about killing an unconscious man. He runs the Van Eck empire.

Fear him.

I just read Six of Crows and loved it. However, I heard that Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows #2) has some Shadow and Bone spoilers in it. Is it worth reading the entire Shadow and Bone trilogy before continuing with Crooked Kingdom?

No, Crooked Kingdom just has some shadow and bone characters in it. You might not love them as much when they come in, but you’ll understand the story. Shadow and bone is very good, but not as amazing as Six of crows. You can go and read those after crooked kingdom to learn more about the characters. You should probably read shadow and bone before king of scars though.

Personally, I’ve read the Six of Crows duology before the Grisha trilogy. The author herself said that she has written the duology in a way that won’t require any background information to understand it. I don’t usually do that and I try to follow the chronological order, however I decided to give it a try. The duology was fantastic, but there were some parts that won’t make any sense if you’re not familiar with the trilogy. Additionally, during the second book in the duology we get introduced to some of the characters from the original Grisha trilogy. You’ll be fine if you do a bit of research (for example the different grisha types, countries, politics, some of the main characters and so on). However, if you decided to read the trilogy in the future, you’ll get massive spoilers in the Six of Crows books.

I did read the Grisha trilogy later, and it wasn’t THAT bad, but was full of cliché YA tropes (aka the chosen one, love triangle, an ordinary girl who doesn’t realize that she’s special…). And additionally, there’s another book, The King of Scars, which has characters from both series, and for that one, you’ll definitely need to read all of the books. There’s also the upcoming sequel to this book too.

In conclusion, if you know that you’ll read all of her books later, definitely read them in chronological order and read the trilogy too. If you don’t really plan on reading the rest of the books and just want to read the duology, that’s fine too.

I would love to write a book. I keep inching closer and closer to actually doing it.

My biggest issue is that I don’t know what to write about.

My internal dialogue goes like this:

“I’ll write a collection of short stories!” I’ll think to myself, “Short stories about my life. That’s good! I’ll make it a funny memoir!”

Just as I begin putting ideas together, my brain will stop me.

“But Kate,” it says, “You haven’t lived long enough to write a memoir. You don’t have enough interesting experiences to warrant one.”

That’s true. I don’t.

“What if I write a fictional book?” I’ll think.

“And where would you start?” My brain asks, “What would it even be about? Are you talking mystery, romance, sci-fi, fantasy? I mean, my god, there’s a million types of ‘fictional books’ out there! How will you narrow it down?!”

That’s true. I’m not sure where to begin.

And so, my brain and I will hem and haw until I give up and go do something else.

So, yes, I would like to write a book.

I just need to get out of my way.

As a beginner in fantasy novels, is “Six of Crows” a good read?


I have read The Six of Crows. I found it to be an enjoyable quick read,some interesting twists at the end as a good heist novel promises.I dont found any complex in plot and it focuses more on relationships, especially the awkwardness of sharing your feelings and discovering your sexuality. Overall I would recommend it if you like heist stories..

Thank you for A2A….

Which is better, Red Queen or Six of Crows?

I personally preferred the six of crows duology. I found the plot more exciting and the character were all round better. They were more diverse and better developed. They also showed a ragtag group that were amazing instead of the ‘chosen one’ trope which I prefer. I also like the representation of trauma in six of crows. However I still really enjoyed The Red Queen and would recommend both.

No, the Six of Crows and the Crooked Kingdom are the only two books as this series is a duology. However, you could check out the other series written by Bardugo, the author of this series. its called the Shadow and Bone trilogy. After that comes another duology, The King of Scars, where there are references to Six of Crows. So if you are an ardent fan, I guess you could check it out. Hope it helped! XD

Why is A Feast for Crows more confusing than the other books in the ASOIF series? Why all the new characters?

I don’t see how AFFC is particularly confusing at all, but I’ll answer the second part of the question.

The introduction of new characters in AFFC is necessary, for a number of reasons. First of all, there simply aren’t enough characters left at the end of ASOS. The Red Wedding, the Purple Wedding, the deaths of Tywin Lannister, Lysa Arryn, Oberyn Martell, and so on, leaves a number of major characters – both protagonists and antagonists – dead.
