Publisher's Summary

The highly anticipated sequel to the thrilling New York Times best-selling Six of Crows.

Kaz Brekker and his crew have just pulled off a heist so daring even they didn't think they'd survive. But instead of divvying up a fat reward, they're right back to fighting for their lives. Double-crossed and badly weakened, the crew is low on resources, allies, and hope. As powerful forces from around the world descend on Ketterdam to root out the secrets of the dangerous drug known as jurda parem, old rivals and new enemies emerge to challenge Kaz's cunning and test the team's fragile loyalties. A war will be waged on the city's dark and twisting streets - a battle for revenge and redemption that will decide the fate of the Grisha world.

this book is so good!

I really liked all the characters, and how developed they are. I liked how the book brings closer while still being true to the characters. all the characters are so complex and twisted heroes or villains. honestly this book is just such a fun read.

A bit slow in parts...

Due to this being the second book in the series, it didn’t capture my attention as much as being introduced to the characters and the epic heist of the first book. But I still love the multiple narrators and the development of the characters. Especially Kaz’s narration, he is my favourite. We have a nice cameo from some Grisha from the Shadow and Bone series which was a treat!

many twists and turns

It's very unpredictable. The team has to adapt to numerous changing circumstances, and almost every time things seem to be going in one direction something happens to redirect everything. It keeps the pace moving and the action steady.

This one is darker and grimmer than the last one. Partially because their situation is so desperate, but also due to interlude chapters exploring character's pasts. The emotional lives of the characters, the consequences of their actions, and the weight of their choices are all part of the action. Those things are written well and make the story carry more impact.

It's a satisfying sequel and worth getting if you liked the first one.

The narrators do a good job again. It's nice to have distinct voices for each point of view.

Stellar

Story:
A perfect conclusion to Six of Crows. I couldn't put it down. It's smart, gritty, sexy, and a testament to Bardugo's creativity.

Performance:
One star for each performer except Wylan's. This is a absolutely stellar production, and it's as if that actor missed the meeting where they practice one another's voices.

The Sequel Surpasses the Original... for once

The voice performance, the action, and the story plot had me invested the entire time. I Started in the morning, kept going until I had to go to bed, then began again promptly the next day. Worth the money/credit.

So good!

I loved this book and the prequel and the voice acting was impeccable. There was one actor who played Wylan’s part who I had to up the speed on and sometimes the accents got mixed up but otherwise it was impeccable.

The sequel we wanted

Not as compelling as the first book and the characters one-dimensionality starts to show through. Nonetheless fun for those who need their fill after the first book
