Book: Crooked Kingdom
Author: Leigh Bardugo
Reviewer: Quinn A, 10th Grade
“Fear is a phoenix. You can watch it burn a thousand times and still it will return”.
Leigh Bardugo takes readers back into the swirling realm of Grishaverse–the world of the Grisha, through her gothic sequel of Six of Crows; Crooked Kingdom. The crew of Kaz, Inej, Nina, Matthias, Jesper, and Wylan are back from breaching the Ice Court–but at what cost? And who actually knows what new journeys they must explore–or what avaricious enemies they will meet, blade in hand? Through beautiful diction and dreadful imagery that makes you swoon, cry, and yearn in single-pages; Bardugo ensures that your love for the Grisha, and your anticipation for the ending of her winding, eternally frightful plot-twists will only grow. If you’re a fan of awful cliffhangers, breath-taking mechanisms, deadly bonds, and bloody oaths–you should definitely consider flipping open Bardugo’s compelling masterpiece!
