Leigh Bardugo’s Six of Crows duology is a study in patience. While readers patiently wait for a character to Do or Say what you Know they need or want to speak and it doesn’t happen… patience. When a scene devolves into chaos that you Absolutely believe was painted in peace and light… patience. When one brush of a finger, blink of an eye, or tilt of the head could trigger passionate reciprocation, but the characters breath stillness and secrecy… patience. When the reader wants so badly to rewrite, reimagine, and rebuild a character’s entire persona so that they Will Do what You Think they should but it is simply not to be… patience. At Crooked Kingdom’s end, the final page, the final sentence, the last word, our patience is rewarded. This is a duology that never ends. Readers will not let Kaz, Inej, Jesper, Nina, Wylan, or Matthias be forgotten. What are they doing now? What are they thinking about, worrying about? Will they always remain family? Will we ever hear from them again or uncover more of their plots, plans, and adventures? Bardugo created a timeless world that shifts, aligns, explodes, and is completely unforgettable!
