Tropes: Found Family, the Morally grey protagonist, Heist, Misfits, Anti-hero, betrayal
If you want to read a book that will keep you up at night thinking about the characters, then Six of Crows is perfect for you.
It’s about six outcasts who come together for a seemingly impossible heist. It’s a perfect blend of found family, adventure and romantic angst. The six main characters – Kaz, Inej, Jesper, Nina, Matthias, and Wylan – all have unique personalities and skill sets, and the dynamics between them are fascinating to read. Not to mention the witty banter between the group is immaculate. (I especially love my sweet baby Kaz Brekker. Kaz could stab me in the heart and I would thank him for the honor.)
There’s always a sense of urgency and tension throughout the book so you don’t have to worry about growing bored. Each chapter builds upon the last, and the plot twists and turns will keep you on your toes.
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.
