Crooked Kingdom Synopis
Welcome to the world of the Grisha.
Kaz Brekker and his crew of deadly outcasts 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 fight 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.
Crooked Kingdom Review
Just as much as I love the Six of Crows, I freaking love this one as well. I’m back under the giant frost’s armpit aka the Ketterdam city with Kaz and his awesome crews. This second book truly drives me insane and I freaking, obviously, hate the villain Jan Van Eck to the hell.
Upon reading this book, I had mixed feelings; angry, excited, sad, pissed off. I am so excited plus worried at the same time every minute Kaz make a plan. Oh, you wouldn’t believe it how many effin’ great plans he always has in mind. And hell yeah, he’s definitely the king of breaking the odds! I feel the story is quite intense and there are many parts with a plot twist that I didn’t expect. Like when Kaz kidnapped Jan’s beloved and like how Wylan revealing their plans. Leigh really knows when and where to put the surprise. One moment she makes your insanity lost intact and within a second she just heals you magically. It’s something like that.
The characters are as lovely as they are in Six of Crows too and I always always love the banter between each one of them. It’s funny and it’s what makes me feel so close to them. I know it just a fictional character but who cares? They are my imaginary friends and they live all the way to the bottom of my brain.
I really enjoy this book, honestly. It’s not that I want to join the hype but it’s truly enjoyable and I love everything about it. The depths of the characters are good enough. The world-building is fantastic. I love whatever invention Leigh creates in her book. I’m pretty sure its science thingy. You won’t get bored of reading and turning every page cause it’s so adventurous. Joining Kaz team gonna make you feel like belonging in a brutal gang that waiting to be dump into the pit of hell. Simply because you have no martial or weaponry skills to survive except that the power of fangirling over them. Yeah live up with that and you die.
READ THIS BOOK. YOU WILL LOVE IT. NO KIDDING. YOU WONT BE DISSAPOINTED.
