ICYMI, Fierce Reads unveiled the fabulous cover for Leigh Bardugo’s new book on Friday. Six of Crows is the first of a new series set in the Grishaverse (the universe of her Grisha trilogy) but it’s about… you’ll see. I didn’t like the Grisha trilogy, but after reading the Tor shorts Bardugo wrote, I definitely think she has writerly oomph. And here’s to hoping I’ll enjoy this one – because it sounds amazing.
Game of Thrones meets Ocean’s Eleven in this brand-book in the world of the Grisha by New York Times-bestselling author Leigh Bardugo.
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.
