Master strategist Kaz Brekker and his team succeeded against extraordinary challenges and achieved their target objective in Six of Crows, only to be double-crossed at the 11th hour. Leigh follows her fantastic heist novel with a stunning revenge novel, as Kaz and the rest engage all their wiles and skills, magical and otherwise, in the streets, halls, and roofs of Ketterdam to not only acquire the monetary reward they were promised and denied, but also exact their revenge and recover what’s been taken. The stakes are extraordinary; they are vastly outnumbered by the opposition (from three nations, as well as local adversaries and even sometimes allies), and there are even some doubts about their abilities to work together. Leigh engages readers’ brains, as they try to keep up with the elaborate schemes, and their hearts as they engage with the amazing cast of characters. Breathtaking! -- Maryelizabeth
— From Holiday Meet & Greet with Leigh Bardugo
Crooked Kingdom the highly anticipated sequel to Leigh Bardugo's thrilling #1 New York Times-bestselling Six of Crows.
Kaz Brekker and his crew have just pulled off a heist so daring even they didn't think they'd survive. But instead of divvying up a fat reward, they're right back to fighting for their lives. Double-crossed and badly weakened, the crew is low on resources, allies, and hope. As powerful forces from around the world descend on Ketterdam to root out the secrets of the dangerous drug known as jurda parem, old rivals and new enemies emerge to challenge Kaz's cunning and test the team's fragile loyalties. A war will be waged on the city's dark and twisting streets--a battle for revenge and redemption that will decide the fate of the Grisha world.
