Hello, everyone! I know I'm super, super, super late for this, but here's my mini review of the book I was supposed to read in March for the 2017 Diverse Reads Challenge! I hadn't had the chance to even read Six of Crows before last month because of the amount of ARCs I had to read (which, by the way, I was also late for). I had this challenge surprisingly well-planned, but I think it's pretty obvious I am not good at following my reading plans through! Anyway - it's summer now, and I do plan on getting back on track during the following months, so hopefully I'll be all set for September!
This will be a mini review because Six of Crows is the first book in a YA, fantasy duology - the second part of which I will be reading soon. I will post a full review for the two books once I finish the second part :)
This book falls within March's topic:
because its main character (Kaz) has a limp.
"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." (Goodreads)
I loved this book. I found the plot to be awesomely unique and appealing -the book is definitely a page-turner. It is full of great action and great writing. I also really enjoyed the way the story was told to me. Overall, a great experience.
The characters are just superb; I love how distinct and unique they are - both from each other and from any other characters I have ever read of. I am unconditionally in love with Kaz - what an interesting character we have here! I think he is a big part of what made me love Six of Crows. It may be his mysteriousness, his intelligence, his feelings... I don't know, but I do know he is an outstanding character! In general, the development of the main characters was just great.
I was afraid Six of Crows might be too hyped, but it really is not. It deserves every bit of the attention that has been given to it. I doubtlessly recommend it - I have already bought the second book in the duology and am planning on reading it really soon!
I gave this book a 5 out of 5 stars, and I think it marks the end of a period of bad luck with books!
Do you recommend any other books including characters with a disability? I would love to know!
