Although, I have to admit I didn't love it as much as I thought I would for which reasons I'll explain in a second! I think you'll appreciate the Grisha's themselves more, but this could totally be apart. Firstly, this puts the EPIC in epic fantasy. She's the "spider", acrobat, and hears and sees everything. Shipping her with above very very aggressively. She's also a bit saucy and definitely sassy and EPIC.
He is like a bulldozer and hates everything. The dorky comic relief and likes to shoot stuff. He and Jesper would make an adorable couple. But we're shipping 'em. I loved the characters I so totally did!!! They all had huge backstories and venerabilities and yet they were all icy and coldblooded at times. I particularly loved Kaz because he was the mastermind. I have a thing for clever, tortured, bitter characters, okay?!

Kaz also has a limp! Which, as I read in the author's note in the back, is a reflection of her So I felt that was really special that she was sharing her sufferings with a we readers, and b her main character. Buuuuut, the characters is also where the book lost a star for me: Everyone has this massively complex backstory that just There were long pages of "telling" not "showing" their backstories.
And 6 characters with long, complex backstories?! Plus I really don't think we needed to see from ALL their perspectives. It got tedious to me. Plus we didn't even get that much of Kaz!! Nina was awesome, but nunnhg Mattias. I wanted to read more about Kaz's story And the book is looooong. I think if we'd had less backstory that would've helped move things along. Like I loved reading it, but often times when I put it down I just felt exhausted from trying to keep up and I wished it'd been more concise.
I crave concise, okay?! Concise and I are my ultimate OTP. I have such a thing for heists, and I'm endlessly pleased it was such an epic plot! There is blood and villainy and things go wrong and characters nearly break in two. And of course it does NOT have a good conclusion. All in all, I loved it, but it lacked tightness for me. I loved the witty banter and the world building though omg this is world building done exquisitely right and I loved the nail biting ending.

To view it, click here. I'm just going to pretend the ending never happened. They completed their mission job, got their money, and lived happily ever after. Stop it, Kainat, stop it! You must contain yourself.! Remember when i read this book for the first time, i couldn't even do a proper review because i couldn't find any words so describe my love for this book? I am utterly obsessed right now. I don't even want the second book, i don't wanna know what's going to happen next. I know whatever it is, it's going to hurt my soul. Oh, Who am i kidding? To all the ladies fighting over Kaz, i'm friendzoning him, he is all yours.
Now, now, don't get me wrong i like him a lot, way more than a lot!! I love love love love love love him! It's just i get this "best-friends" vibe from him. Like, if I knew him in real life i'd follow him around like a puppy until we became BFFs! Nina on the other hand! These are just my favorite quotes and pictures i really liked.
Might even have spoilers, if you haven't read it i highly recommend that you do. I don't want to read any other book now. I just want more Nina and Mathias I love their love-hate relationship! She is so fucking brave!! I am all about them heartbreaking sad endings but not here! Better not happen to these two! I kinda liked the ending because that means we are going to dark dark places in the next book. But i demand they all get their happy endings! Leigh, i'll even beg you, don't break my heart. How can i not love Kaz and Inej?! That she was lovely and brave and better than anything he deserved.
That he was twisted, crooked, wrong, but not so broken that he couldn't pull himself together into some semblance of a man for her. He needed to thank her for his new hat. Jan 31, Adam Silvera rated it it was amazing Shelves: So happy I waited until I was in the right headspace to read this mammoth of a masterpiece, and that I have the sequel at the ready!
How to begin this review? How to put into words how much I loved these characters and this book? How am I supposed to write down all those many feels? And most importantly, How can I live with this ache in my chest? I have no answer to all of those questions, but I know that I have to write this review! So here I go! You know one of those books that are easy to read and make you laugh. I expected to read a story that was able to enthral me.
A story I would enjoy and classify as intriguing. To me it was so much more than that though. It was a story about life and hate and the choices that we make. It was a tale about the people and experiences that shape us. But most of all it actually was a secret and subtle homage to love. Kaz Brekker is the right-hand man of the leader of the Dregs, one of the many gangs that live in the Barrel territory of Ketterdam and try their best to get by. This is the moment where I take the liberty to inform you that the characters section is going to be full of spoilers.
And yet they hesitated. The knowledge that they might never see each other again, that some of them — maybe all of them — might not survive this night hung heavy in the air. A gambler, a convict, a wayward son, a lost Grisha, a Suli girl who had become a killer, a boy from the Barrel who had become something worse.
Kaz shook his head, dark hair glinting in the lamplight. He was a collection of hard lines and tailored edges — sharp jaw, lean build, wool coat snug across his shoulders. XD Alone his scheming face! It was so hard to watch him while he tried to keep his composure and whenever I read his POV it felt like his anxiety choked me.
She always wore it tied back in a ruthlessly tight coil. Even the idea of being this near someone should have set his skin crawling. Instad he thought, What happens if I move closer? Inej is kick-ass and I loved her for it!!! Her back was straight, her tone steady. She looked like someone facing the firing squad and saying damn the blindfolds. What to say about him? At the beginning of the book he was so ignorant and oblivious to his faults but the more I got to know him the more I could see why Nina fell for him.
Nina had blown into his life with the wind and rain and set his world spinning. He knew his mentor could not hear him, but he spoke the words anyway.
I can drink it no longer. Nina is so compassionate and lovely and I immediately loved her for it! I just adored her for being so passionate and I was so sad when Matthias rejected her at the beginning. Not that this would have had any visible impact on her, after all she still had a sharp tongue and made sure to use it.
Do not move abruptly. If you don't promise to take it easy, I'll slow your heart and keep you in a coma until I can be sure you've recovered fully. He loved it, and he hated himself for loving it. I loved the way he tried to ease the tension and how he worked as a buffer between all those different characters.
It broke my heart when I found out that he seems to be illiterate and that his mean idiot of a father mocked him with it. Nina batted her glossy lashes at him. Those two gave me a serious headache!!! I knew they both loved each other but Matthias vehemently refused to acknowledge his feelings for Nina and it almost drove me insane! I have to admit that I also loved the way how Nina and Matthias pushed each other and them playing cat and mouse was just so much fun to hold it against them.
She winced, but when he tried to pull away, she clutched him tighter. Tears leaked from her eyes. I want to go home to Ravka. Their love was so bittersweet that it sometimes even caused me to stop breathing. Their emotions were so intense and gentle and yet their circumstances made it impossible to be together.
To touch other people is pure torture for him, yet he still let Inej reach out to him. It cost him so much just to stand there and let her caress his cheek, but he did it because he actually truly loves her!!! It put my heart through the meat grinder and shredded it into thousand tiny pieces…. It caused me to swallow, it made me gasp for air, it simply wrenched my breath away… It caused me to feel a pang in the center of my chest and my heart is still bleeding… Especially now that they took Inej!!!
His mind had gone jagged at the sensation, a riot of confusion. It had been terror and disgust and — in all of that clamour - desire, a wish that lingered still, the hope that she would touch him again. I want you to … I want you. Gently, she squeezed his hand. It was the face he wore when he was fighting. Maybe it was because his back was to her that she could finally speak the words. Or I will not have you at all.
Jesper never missed a chance to tease Wylan and even though Wylan was so innocent and shy he still somehow managed to hit back at him! He scowled and pulled his collar up. So to all of my fellow Dregs, this is the way my review finally ends: View all 57 comments. Feb 09, Nat rated it it was amazing Shelves: I think a lot of people will understand me when I say that Six of Crows is the kind of book that provokes all the strong emotions in you.
I knew right from page 1 that this book was going to be an all-time favorite of mine. A convict with a thirst for revenge: Getting Matthias out of Hellgate was extremely nerve-wracking, especially when he reunited with Nina. One moment he was caressing her cheek and the next he was trying to kill her — I had tears in my eyes because it was so intense.
But I really really really like Matthias and Nina together. They definitely had a rocky start, but that made them getting together that more important for me. Her voice was disinterested, but the performance was wasted on everyone except Helvar. A sharpshooter who can't walk away from a wager: Jesper knocked his head against the hull and cast his eyes heavenward.
A runaway with a privileged past: Oh and his dialogue with Jesper? I love her and her strength. Inej and Kaz are so good together. But a different reply roared to life inside him, loud, insistent, and unwelcome. I need more of them together. I might have loved you, too. Before she had betrayed him. Those words carved an ache into her chest. I had this terrible feeling the whole time she was with him that something wrong was going to happen — and this was the one time that I did not want to be right.
But thank the Saints for the moment he realized just how horribly wrong he had been and that the cause he believed in was all a lie. Kaz Brekker is a badass with a terribly sad past. His relationship with Jordie was so heartbreaking to read, how they invested all their money in the hopes that something good would come out of it made me really emotional. Kaz has my heart. He is also incredibly smart and sneaky, every single time something went amiss he had the perfect solution.
Like a hive of bees in your dresser drawer. And praying not to get stung. It was dark, rich, and I could not put down this story from the very first word to the very last. It's the sort of book that will leave you thinking about it for days, weeks, maybe forever. I was just so captivated by this world that I found myself feeling surprised whenever I looked up from my book and didn't catch myself in Ketterdam. I'm just going to go and watch The Office and try to get over my book hangover.
And definitely read this book if you haven't already, you won't regret it trust me. I'm an Amazon Affiliate.

These characters are so gorgeously three-dimensional, so complex and lovable and moody and clever and flawed and relatable, that I found myself immediately falling in love with each and every one of them within mere pages of meeting them.
While Leigh Bardugo tiptoes and uses implications for the most part, Inej was forced to work in a brothel for some time, and when she reminisces on her fearful memories and the loving family that came before them , it breaks my heart a little more every time. The ice does not forgive. Wylan, a sweet kid who knows a little too much about bombs and found himself roped into the Dregs through some unusual and rather unfortunate circumstances. It became a declaration.
There was no part of him that was not broken, that had not healed wrong, and there was no part of him that was not stronger for having been broken. On top of the diversity aspect and how lovable everyone is, the romance in this book could make you swoon for weeks. No, more like years… forever? The six Dregs branch into three couples, and normally, that would annoy me in the sense of not wanting to see everyone pair off with one another, but in this book, it just works. I could honestly go on for days, but trust me when I say that Leigh Bardugo is, in my eyes, a goddess and a literary queen.
Buddy read with Julie! View all 46 comments. The characters were great. I felt like they were decently developed, and it was a veritable thunderstorm of one-liners and clever dialogue: Jesper stretched his long arms overhead and grinned, his teeth white against his dark skin. He had yet to give up his rifle, and the silhouette of it across his back made him resemble a gawky, long-limbed bird. How is that even possible? I'm still not sure. But you rated it 4. Now ask me about the second half. How was the second half. And I have a strong suspicion that this is one of the rare books that actually improves on the reread.
So now that I know them. She still managed to keep us on our toes though. As much as I immediately shipped two pairs, I did not ship another, and there are a myriad of obstacles to weather all around. I still don't know. It didn't end in a nasty cliffhanger, but this is the first installment of a new series, so everything isn't going to be resolved. Darker than the Dark ling? O Personally, I loved it.
I am unabashedly bloodthirsty, after all. And something about ruthless determination with just the smallest hint of humanity is so damn sexy. Brekker had glanced back at him, his dark eyes like caverns. I wanted to be the one person in the world who made Kaz feel something. I wanted Inej to trust me so that I could tell her no part of her enslavement or what came after was her fault and have her believe me.
I wanted to bang Matthias' and Nina's stupid heads together like. I just wanted to hug Wylan. As for the various villains, I want them to suffer. The second half more than made up for it. In fact, the slow middle section is really my only complaint. My other reviews for this series: Crooked Kingdom Six of Crows View all 51 comments.
Six of Crows is one of my favorite books of all time, and no review I write will do this book justice or portray how much I love it or how perfect it is. I would be scared too - Inej wondering if Kaz had ever been a little boy. I want to scream any time I read something sad happening to these precious people which is literally like every other page but at the same time I just want to keep reading!!!! I hate Leigh Bardugo!!! Kaz stop worrying about them not following your orders like a self-conceited prick and try to get out alive?????
No more, no less. No, wait, bing bing bong bing bing. I want you to… I want you. I have no idea how she comes up with such elaborate heists like this, I can barely manage to find the yogurt in the fridge - the characters are absolutely amazing. Anyways, if you need me, you can find me lying on the floor and staring up at the ceiling unresponsively until I one day decide to get up and reread this series again and give my life a purpose!!!!
And screaming at myself in the mirror at 2 in the morning over the third book!!! I actually got my mother obsessed with my favorite book? This book pulled me in from the beginning, to the point where I knew I'd found a favorite before I was halfway through. Here, Bardugo integrates a creative plot , interesting and morally grey characters , group dynamics and banter , a great writing style, and some really, really prime romance plots. Goddamn, can Leigh Bardugo write romance. There are very, very few books that I love so wholeheartedly. This series truly is my favorite fantasy series of all time.
There's no competition whatsoever. Her plotting is incredibly engaging, with so many twists and turns that the book is hard to put down. This book focuses on mind games and clever plotting. The dregs need to have a thousand backup plans, and everything is brilliantly planned by Bardugo.
The Grisha's worldbuilding is very engaging, even though we're thrown in without context; I remember thinking that I would have appreciated a proper map of Ketterdam, and then we GOT a good map in book two! Bardugo's prose is awesome, and there are some truly gorgeous quotes from here. Then again, it doesn't feel as if she's trying too hard or using purple prose. Bardugo nails character work here.
Every single character grows, every single character develops, every single character owns my heart. She's gone through hell and she's come out strong and in control. She feels so real on page; she has a heart but she only lets it out around the people she cares about. I like that combination. Kaz is the most manipulative, terrible, morally black protagonist I've ever read about, and I love him to pieces.
He's absolutely an antihero; yes, he's on a mission to save the world, but does he care about saving the world? Nope, he cares about getting his cash. He still manages to be a complex, dimensional character, who genuinely cares about his friends not dying though he'd never admit it. Jesper is witty and an absolute delight to get a POV chapter from, but he's also incredibly sympathetic as a former farm boy who fell from grace. He likes living on the edge, and he's aware of the pain his own actions have caused him, and he's trying to work through it. Nina is hilarious and idealistic and clever and can go from flirting to making speeches within ten seconds.
She's such a great character because she's so earnest and positive despite everything that's happened to her.
She's also one of the most badass characters ever. Wylan doesn't actually have pov chapters here, but he's getting a shoutout from me anyway because of his pov chapters in CK. He's entertaining here, too, coming off as a blushing do-gooder but with rumor and intrigue swirling around his actual past. Matthias is honestly my least favorite. He's dynamic enough and he's got a great character arc, but I don't feel as if he's nearly as original a character as my five.
Whatever, I still like him. Their banter owns my heart. Jesper and Inej especially have one of my favorite friendship dynamics of all time; their banter and their genuine trust in each other and their lowkey joking about their mutual crush on Kaz. Inej and Nina stand out as well; extra credit for passing the bechdel test with flying colors. Also, the dialogue here absolutely rules. You have no idea how many times I had to hold in laughter.
But the romance plots never overtake the book; I have an annotations list for these books, and there are twice as many good character moments and gorgeous quotes as there are romantic moments. Kaz and Inej are one of my all-time favorite book couples. I used to consider them my third favorite, but they've quickly become my favorite of all time. They have so many small moments and such slow-build romantic development. And then, as if I weren't invested already, they have that one declaration scene which honestly made me swoon.
I will have you without armor, Kaz Brekker. Jesper and Wylan are just cute for most of the book. They got some cute relationship build, but I wasn't that invested. You could've left me heart intact instead, but?? Also, side note, but I don't understand how anyone was surprised they're a thing in book two. I know heteronormativity is a thing that exists, but how can you read "not just girls" and mutual blushing in a heterosexual way? Matthias and Nina were honestly not that big a ship for me here. I absolutely understand what's appealing about their dynamic; they're sweet and have amazing relationship development.
But they don't appeal to me personally; I don't have to lie down for twenty minutes when I read their scenes. It helps that this is ownvoices disability rep. Kaz' disability affects his life in a realistic way, and there's no magical cure for it, BUT he's still a huge badass and the disability never becomes a consuming part of his character!!
There's also the fact that a chubby main character is portrayed as the most beautiful member of the group, while also not being reduced to her appearance. There's a major character with ADD as well.
This series handles emotional and physical trauma in the best way. Some of these characters have trauma and it's never portrayed as a detriment to who they are as people. It's an aspect of who they are as people, but their background never takes over their characters. Recovery is also portrayed in a great way; none of these characters can be "fixed" but that's okay.
The entire topic is handled in a better way than most contemporaries that focus entirely on trauma. I appreciate it so much. I was never bored by this book, and I love the characters more than my own life. With most of my faves, I love them, but I get it if you don't love them. I flat-out don't understand how anyone could not love this book.
Oct 14, Raeleen Lemay rated it really liked it Shelves: I found the beginning meaning the first pages lol to be very very slow and hard to get into, which is why the book took me so long to read. I loved the characters, and their group dynamic was flawless. There's plenty of drama and they all have interesting backstories, and they each had a specific skill set that made them unique and necessary in the group. If I had to pick a favorite character I'd be hard-pressed to pick just one, because they are all goals Kaz, Inej and Nina tho The plot moved along quickly after the halfway point, and there were plenty of twists and turns to keep things interesting.
My only issue aside from the weird pacing in the beginning was how at the end it felt like Leigh Bardugo was forcing all of the characters to pair up. Luckily it wasn't too bad, but I thought it was dumb that all six of the main characters felt the need to shack up with each other. I guess we'll see how that goes in book 2: Sep 18, Chelsea Humphrey rated it it was amazing. As you can see, I finally jumped on the band wagon and inhaled the first in this series.
While it did take me about 50 pages to really get sucked in, mainly due to sorting out names and the layout of this fantasy world, things picked up quickly and I blew through a majority of the book about as fast as I can scarf down a large pizza. The major pull for my placing this on the ever-growing TBR last year was solely th As you can see, I finally jumped on the band wagon and inhaled the first in this series. The major pull for my placing this on the ever-growing TBR last year was solely that I was curious as to how an adventurous heist would look from the viewpoint of teenagers.
I racked my brain trying to find other books like it and came up short; maybe someone can point a few out to me, but I felt that alone made this a unique read. I can say with great confidence that this one is memorable beyond doubt and lives up to all the hype surrounding it.
If you read the summary above, you can see it leaves quite a bit to the imagination as it should. On one hand, I feel it would have helped to set up the Ketterdam world a bit more where I could have dove in and immediately ran with it; on the other, I sort of enjoyed not having the back story on the various lands and cultures discussed in the book, and it made me want to go back and read the Grisha books for a fuller understanding. If you are like me and late to the party, just know that neither choice is wrong and you can enjoy either route. We find out early on that one of the main characters and leader of The Dregs , Kaz Brekker, is crippled and requires a cane for support while walking.
Even though this is a fantasy book, these aspects gave it a realistic quality amidst all the magical beings and fantastical fights. All 6 of the crows were awesome and fun to follow, but his backstory and personality added a line of humor, mystery, and care free immaturity that lightened the mood and added depth to the teenage group. I hate nothing more than a YA book that basically writes the characters all off as teenagers who are completely mature adults, and this one was sure to keep reminding us that, at the end of the day, they still are children with those types of needs and wants.
While the heist was clearly unrealistic and totally unbelievable, this is fantasy, and we need a lot of unrealistic in the big picture. What sold me was all the little, more believable details and quirks given to each character. If you are a fan of fantasy YA fiction and are also late to the party like myself , please give this one a go!

The other possibility is that artists and religious people from several cultures independently created the hexagram shape, which is a relatively simple geometric design.
Within Indic lore, the shape is generally understood to consist of two triangles—one pointed up and the other down—locked in harmonious embrace. The two components are called "Om" and the "Hrim" in Sanskrit, and symbolize man's position between earth and sky. The downward triangle symbolizes Shakti , the sacred embodiment of femininity, and the upward triangle symbolizes Shiva , or Agni Tattva , representing the focused aspects of masculinity.
The mystical union of the two triangles represents Creation, occurring through the divine union of male and female. This symbol is also a part of several yantras and has deep significance in Hindu ritual worship and history. It was made up by the publishers for this particular publication. In Tibetan, it is called the "origin of phenomenon" chos-kyi 'byung-gnas. It is especially connected with Vajrayogini , and forms the center part of Her mandala.
In reality, it is in three dimensions, not two, although it may be portrayed either way. The Shatkona is a symbol used in Hindu yantra that represents the union of both the male and feminine form. More specifically it is supposed to represent Purusha the supreme being , and Prakriti mother nature, or causal matter. Often this is represented as Shiva - Shakti. The Shatkona is a hexagram and looks exactly like the Star of David.
In the endocrine system , Anahata is associated with the thymus gland, located in the chest. This gland produces T-cells , that combat disease, and bring equilibrium to the body. The functioning of the thymus is greatest before puberty and is impaired by the appearance of sex hormones in the blood stream from puberty onwards. The hexagram may be found in some Churches and stained-glass windows. In Christianity it is sometimes called the star of creation. A very early example, noted by Nikolaus Pevsner , can be found in Winchester Cathedral , England in one of the canopies of the choir stalls, circa In Orthodox Christian churches, for example in Balkan countries, hexagrams can be found more often than in Roman Catholic churches.
It symbolizes God reaching down to man and man reaching up to God, the union of Heaven and earth.
It may also symbolize the Tribes of Israel and friendship and their affinity towards the Jewish people. Additionally, it is sometimes used to symbolize the quorum of the twelve apostles, as in Revelation 12, wherein the Church of God is symbolized by a woman wearing a crown of twelve stars. A black star of David is used to identify the black population, in Africa or otherwise, with one of the Tribes of Israel. Hexagram at Humayun's Tomb , Delhi, India. Hexagram on the flag of Hayreddin Barbarossa.
In various places in the Qur'an , it is written that David and King Solomon Arabic, Suliman or Sulayman were prophets and kings and therefore they are revered figures by Muslims. Even today, the star can be found in mosques and on other Arabic and Islamic artifacts. Professor Gershom Scholem theorizes  that the "Star of David" originates in the writings of Aristotle , who used triangles in different positions to indicate the different basic elements.
The superposed triangles thus represented combinations of those elements. From Aristotle's writings those symbols made their ways into early, pre-Muslim Arab literature. In heraldry and vexillology , a hexagram is a fairly common charge employed, though it is rarely called by this name. In Germanic regions it is known simply as a "star. In Albanian heraldry and vexillology, hexagram has been used since classical antiquity and it is commonly referred to as sixagram.

These include the Swastika , the Ankh , the Aum , and the Ouroboros. The star of David is also known as the Seal of Solomon that was its original name until around 50 years ago.
The hexagram, like the pentagram , was and is used in practices of the occult and ceremonial magic and is attributed to the 7 "old" planets outlined in astrology. The six-pointed star is commonly used both as a talisman  and for conjuring spirits and spiritual forces in diverse forms of occult magic. Traditionally, the Hexagram can be seen as the combination of the four elements.
Fire is symbolized as an upwards pointing triangle, while Air its elemental opposite is also an upwards pointing triangle, but with a horizontal line through its center. Water is symbolized as a downwards pointing triangle, while Earth its elemental opposite is also a downwards pointing triangle, but with a horizontal line through its center.
When you combine the symbols of Fire and Water, a hexagram six-pointed star is created. The same follows for when you combine the symbols of Air and Earth. When you combine both hexagrams, you get the double-hexagram. Thus, a combination of the elements is created.
