Product description

Review

[Bardugo] touches on religion, class, family, love -- all organically, all effortlessly, all cloaked in the weight of a post-war reckoning with the cost (literal and figurative) of surviving the events that shape both people and nations. --NPR

Dark, beautifully written, and full of characters who instantly get inside of your head, the first book in this new duology is an instant classic. --PopSugar

Why You'll Love It: ... Leigh Bardugo continues to breathe new life into her lush fantasy world, and it's impossible to resist reading every single one.
For Fans of: Fantasy authors like Susan Dennard and Sabaa Tahir. --Paste

A richly detailed and refreshingly diverse world inhabited by individuals who, for all their magical talents, are resonantly human. --The Washington Post

Deadly clever political intrigue, heart-stopping adventure, memorable characters, and several understated, hinted-at romances (how will we wait?!) come together in one glorious, Slavic-folklore infused package. Bardugo's star continues to rise. --Booklist, starred review

The sharp dialogue and lovable characters continue to enthrall and bewitch long past the final chapter. With twists and revelations cleverly dispersed up until the very last page, this novel is a must-have for any book shelf. --School Library Journal, starred review

"The best magic universe since Harry Potter." --Bustle
"This is what fantasy is for." --The New York Times Book Review
"[A] world that feels real enough to have its own passport stamp." --NPR
"The darker it gets for the good guys, the better." --Entertainment Weekly
"Sultry, sweeping and picturesque. . . . Impossible to put down." --USA Today
"There's a level of emotional and historical sophistication within Bardugo's original epic fantasy that sets it apart." --Vanity Fair
"Unlike anything I've ever read." --Veronica Roth, bestselling author of Divergent
"Bardugo crafts a first-rate adventure, a poignant romance, and an intriguing mystery!" --Rick Riordan, bestselling author of the Percy Jackson series
"This is a great choice for teenage fans of George R.R. Martin and J.R.R. Tolkien." --RT Book Reviews

5.0 out of 5 stars OMG
Reviewed in India on 10 February 2019
This book is such a joy to read! It has everything that we liked in Six of Crows, but with characters from Shadow and Bone trilogy, that wasn't as great as Six of Crows was. This book though, kills it.

Nikolai is a very intriguing character to read. Sassier than ever, even when everything is getting out of control. Nina's POV is there to break your heart after the events of Crooked Kingdom. Zoya is fun to read. Love the banter between her and Nikolai 😂 The dialogues are killing it!

Fair warning, read the Grisha Trilogy and Six of Crows duology before reading this book to understand it all better. There's a lot of throwbacks to the previous books since the story is intricately woven with them.

Also, the hardcover is damn gorgeous 🌟🥰 The map has been updated. You might get lost just admiring the book instead of actually reading it.
