Criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker has been offered wealth beyond his wildest dreams. But to claim it, he'll have to pull off a seemingly impossible heist:

Break into the notorious Ice Court
(a military stronghold that has never been breached)

Retrieve a hostage
(who could unleash magical havoc on the world)

Survive long enough to collect his reward
(and spend it)

Kaz needs a crew desperate enough to take on this suicide mission and dangerous enough to get the job done - and he knows exactly who: six of the deadliest outcasts the city has to offer. Together, they just might be unstoppable - if they don't kill each other first.

No, little brother. No one is stronger. You've cheated death too many times. Greed may do your bidding, but death serves no man.

First thing first, let me just tell you that Six of Crows set my bookish heart on fire! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, this book is full of tricks. The six characters with a different point of view glide me up effortlessly. Leigh Bardugo never fails to amaze me when it comes to magic, darkness, and love.

Six characters and six parts, each of them fulfilled my bookish heart every step of the way. Unlike Shadow and Bone Trilogy, Six of Crows has its unique kind of Grisha vibe. Six of Crows has a lot of kick-ass moment and I am infinitely in love with it.

The gamble and risk of getting in and out of the Ice Court, Kaz, has a lot of creativity in his mind. One of the reasons why I love Kaz Brekker is because of his playful and tricky mind. He learned a hard way to survive and stand up in spite of the tragedy that he had with his brother. This man is relentlessly optimistic in every scenario. Through Inej and Jesper's skills, he combines all of the information to slowly sabotage their enemies. Basically, whoever blocks their way, he knows when to attack behind their back.

Matthias and Nina are hilarious. Seeing them bickering at each other and then agreeing at some point, is one of my enjoyable time when I read SOC. Both have their reasons to stand for what they believed in and for that reason, I simply admire both of them. Aside from that, I loved Jesper and Wylan, both came from a different environment, but they surprisingly synced together!

Of course, the most thrilling and exciting part of SOC is how the characters can get in and out of the Ice Court. You know what, Leigh Bardugo wrote a perfect escape to my bookish heart. SOC has become my official favorite book of this year, well aside from ACOWAR. But anyway, Six of Crows brought me to a massive heist. From knives, guns, bombs, explosives, tanks, and especially Grisha, Six of Crows is precisely the right book for readers who seek a deadly yet a lovely adventure.
