My reading tips this week is the amazing Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo, the sequel to the addictive, action-packed and intriguing Six of Crows. Believe the hype, this series is just as amazing as everyone says!
What makes this series so amazing is the characters. The story is told from multiple character’s third point of views. I absolutely loved how brilliantly Leigh Bardugo created a web with so many layers, when each characters added his or her piece, but still kept the main story together. I absolutely fell in love with all of the six main characters. They were so unique and interesting, mean but kind, bad but also good, and the all added so much depth to the story. And they all had troublesome pasts that helped you understand how they’d ended up in this band of thieves, but you also got to know about their dreams for the future and their hidden feelings and thoughts, which made you relate to, and love them, even more.
This book made me feel even more in love with the characters and the dynamic between them. And the plot was amazing yet again. Also in this second installment it kept you on edge with worry and anticipation all the way to the end.
One thing I did not like though was a sad thing that happened in the story (will not say more to not spoil anything), but it really upset me. Besides that this book was everything I wanted it to be. I loved the way some of the romances evolved and also a very happy family discovery that was made.
Overall I love this series and recommend it with all my heart.
