2.0 out of 5 stars Page missing from my copy of the collector's edition.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 5 October 2019
I love the book, but page 431 is missing; they've printed an extra 'part 6' title page where it should be - literally mid-sentence. Returning for a replacement, and if the next copy is okay I'll come back and up it to five stars, but I feel like I can't give a collector's edition five stars if it's faulty (and I'm wondering how many people haven't spotted the fault because they've already read the non-collector's editions and bought this as an extra).

Other than that the edition is beautiful.

EDIT: Yeah, the second copy sent had the same misprint. Be sure to check your copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 18 December 2019
After my reread of Six of Crows I just had to read Crooked Kingdom and even though I knew what happens I was still not ready for that ending. This duology is one of my all time favourite books!

It’s no secret that I adore everything that Leigh Bardugo writes and of course this book did not disappoint. This was a reread via audiobook and I highly recommend listening as it’s a full cast and amazing!

This book starts where Six of Crows ends and it’s set entirely in Ketterdam unlike Six of Crows where they travel to Fjerda and back. So this story is a little different but no less enthralling and action packed. As usual the characters are absolutely wonderful and I love seeing their character development. I also loved seeing cameos by some of my favourite characters from the Grisha trilogy!

Once again I was completely enthralled by the story and the characters. The banter between the characters is my favourite thing ever! They always seem so much older because of what they’ve been through but then they squabble and fight and sass each other just like your regular teen and it would just remind you how young they really are.

The development of my ships was another thing I absolutely loved! The angst and the slow burn between them and how each couple is so different from the others and each go through their own journey and together as a couple and then on another growth in their gang together. Leigh had their character developments in all different areas of their life and did it so well.

My favourite ship is of course Kaz and Inej. The slow burn between them and their own hardships and barriers they’ve built that makes it hard for them to even admit their feelings for each other. It just killed me! But I really love how Leigh handles Kaz’s PTSD. He cannot touch people and I loved that he wasn’t “magically cured” because he wanted to be with Inej. He struggled with it, it prevented him from being able to be close to Inej and it felt so much more real.
This story is quite different from Six of Crows as it isn’t just one quest that they go on throughout the book. They have to make multiple plans and deal with lots of different groups of people. It was absolutely amazing to see how their plans came together. This book will take you on a wild ride!

The ending of this book is so satisfying in so many ways but will also break your heart and drag it through the mud and run it over with a truck. I first read this book in 2016 and I have never gotten over a particular thing that happens at the end. They had so much potential and it was ripped away from them. BRB going to go cry.

Anyways I highly recommend you go read this duology and all the Grishaverse books because they are amazing! I absolutely love all the grisha books but this duology will forever be my favourite!

After finishing Crooked Kingdom this morning I realised 2 things:

1. My own headcanon is the only thing that's keeping me going today.
2. I wish I read this sooner - so I would have recovered by now!

After finishing Six of Crows a few weeks back - my plan was to jump right in to Crooked Kingdom. I knew I would love it, so I held off reading it in a bid to savour it.

It certainly lived up to my expectations (though SoC is my fave).
There were times when I thought the plot was too slow and nothing was really happening. But - overall I think that help build the tension for the climax at the end. I certainly wished I could flip back a few pages and stay in the safety of the previous chapters, before Leigh Bardugo ripped my heart out and squeezed every last bit of hope out of it.

I laughed out loud at Jesper's and Nina's banter with the rest of the gang. It was needed in an other wise fairly bleak to and fro between everyone.

When you're fed crumbs of hope on one page and then given a slap in the face back to reality on another - my emotions were frayed for the second half of this book.

As most of you know - I love a good romance. And, although I couldn't say that the main 'romance' in this is even that - the bitter sweet affection that could be something more in time is the only hope I have. I'm filling in the gaps myself.

Through all the scheming, distrust and harsh reality of life in the barrel - whether Kaz would ever admit it or not - he is the reason that all of them came together and he was used as a buffer as they all bonded. He's the reason for their friendships/relationships and I bet that just makes him feel all warm and fuzzy lol.

I truly hope that one day we get another story from the Barrel because I'm not ready for this to be the ending.
