Six of Crows was amazing. The review is right, it really is the characters who make the books stand out so well and so clearly.

Given that this is a book about criminals, it's also pretty clean, and I appreciate that Bardugo didn't throw in a bunch of dirty stuff just for the heck of it. I had my misgivings, but it ended up being wonderful!! Be prepared to be obsessed look up Six of Crows incorrect quotes if you want to die laughing. I did really like this book, and hopped onto the train of this series without knowing about the Grisha trilogy, and it did take me a few times to re-read this book to truly wrap my brain around the way this world works.
It was a fantastic book, and it never did get stale. I really did love the characters, they were all so unique and I each fell in love with them on a different level.

This book has to be one of my favorites of this year! I can't wait for the sequel! Great book. I avoided initially because I really wasn't interested in Leigh Bardugo's Grisha Trilogy, but then I read the blurb and I was immediately hook up. I mean come on, who doesn't love Ocean's Eleven in a Fantasy world? Well what I got was something completely different and entirely unexpected.
I was completely thrown off by just how character-driven the story was.
After much resistance on my part I finally got around to admiring who the characters were. Because of the general lack of a supporting cast, the focus is almost entirely on the protagonists and I have to say they all unique and have well rounded character arcs. Yes the story wasn't anything earth-shattering, but I was so swept up in the stories of the characters that it hardly hindered my enjoyment of the book.
Loved it overall and now the wait for the sequel is going to be hard. Thank you for taking the time to write a review on this book, it really makes a difference and helps readers to find their perfect book. They say that the Thorn of Camorr can beat anyone in a fight.

Van Eck's impossible job for Kaz, if he wishes to accept it, is to break the drug maker out and bring him back to Ketterdam.

In response to the proposal, Kaz does what he does best: ask for an insane amount of money while stealing Van Eck's wallet and jewels at the same time. Inej and Jesper from his gang are easy choices, and so is the Grisha, Nina, who has powers that can stop a person's heart. And he smartly chooses Van Eck's son, Wylan, as collateral. That leaves one more: the Fjerdan, Matthias.
It's hard to know what to rave about first. Even readers who think they've seen it all when it comes to twists and turns will still be wowed by every crazy plan Kaz comes up with to get out of the last one that went horribly wrong.

And Kaz never shows his whole hand, so until that plan goes wrong you're still guessing. Then, in-between breaking into and out of prisons and fighting gangs of rogue Grisha, the backstories of each of the six fascinating characters emerge. Their harsh situations and determination to survive only increase the nail-biting when it seems like they can't possibly make it out of the next scrape alive. Add to that two star-crossed love stories and the pages turn even faster.
What a phenomenal start to a new series.
