Blurb from Goodreads:
Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price - and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy, Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can't pull it off alone. 

A convict with a thirst for revenge.
A sharpshooter who can't walk away from a wager.
A runaway with a privileged past.
A spy known as the Wraith.
A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums.
A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes.

Six dangerous outcasts. One impossible heist. Kaz's crew is the only thing that might stand between the world and destruction - if they don't kill each other first.

My Review:

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Thanks to Hachette Children's Group and NetGalley*

Kaz Brekker has made a name for himself in Ketterdam as a criminal.
Kaz is offered the chance to be rich beyond his wildest dreams but there's a catch - he must break into an inescapable prison.
Kaz assembles a crew of misfits to join him.
Will they survive to spend the money?

Six of Crows was a diverse, intriguing read.
My favourite thing was the characters. They were unique, relatable and likeable. Inej and Nina were my favourites. I liked their relationship.
I liked that the romance wasn't the main focus and it was sweet.
The world that Bardugo has created is very intriguing and I'm interested to read more about it.
The plot was good and held my attention but I wasn't gripped.
I enjoyed the writing style and will definitely be reading the sequel.

Overall this was an enjoyable read that I would recommend.
