    The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch (ajwseven, Carnophile)
    Carnophile: Who'd win in a fight between the Locke Lamora gang and the Kaz Brekker gang? I NEED to see this. No, it's not a contest, but boy would that be a fun read.

    wordcauldron: Alanna's George was my first exposure to books about thieving, espionage, gangs, assassins, etc., and this book sort of seemed to me like an in-depth look at that side of life (though a little more violent than it would have been in Alanna's universe), plus Alanna's all about magic and dangerous adventures and such.… (more)

I was curious about these books after seeing Shadow and Bone on Netflix. The book was good. It was nice to have the background of the series in reading this book, I might have been rather lost otherwise. there is some overlap in the book and the Netflix series but it also was a unique story. The only thing I didn't like was the fact that these characters are supposed to be so young, but are acting way more mature than they should. I know that the author must intend for the audience to believe that experience matures characters but this seemed a bit overboard. Overall though, I really enjoyed the book, I really liked the characters (ignoring the age thing) and the adventure. The book kind of ended on a cliffhanger so I'm happy I had ready access to the second story. ( )

REVIEW: Six of Crows is the first book in a duology that takes place within Leigh Bardugo’s Grishaverse. It follows six young criminals from Ketterdam as they attempt a heist that, if successful, will change all their lives completely.

This is an exciting book, to say the least. It really kept my attention as I read it. The characters are all interesting, unique, and three dimensional, and I found myself caring about them a great deal as I read the book. This, of course, makes any book better.

This IS a dark book, but it’s not all dark all the time, and I really enjoyed reading it.

While some knowledge of Bardugo’s Grishaverse would be useful while reading this duology – it isn’t necessary. ( )

I did not think I would be so invested in this goddam story. I had neutral to low expectations since the duology had been rather critically reviewed by one of my favorite BookTubers, but man. MAN. This was the chaotic goodness I needed in these dark times. One thing I will say is that I think Leigh Bardugo's choice to make all of her main as young as they were was...bad. These kids are way too horny, skilled, and measured and methodical to be teenagers. I understand that these kids are supposed to be hardened by their lived experiences and gifted beyond what our world could conceive, but they are human. Have you seen/been a human 15 year old? They're half baked, and I don't want to read about the heat of their desire. The story as a whole is much improved if you add about 5 years to the age of every character.

Other than that, brilliant. ( )
