    Description

    The highly anticipated sequel to the thrilling New York Times best-selling 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.

    Amazing

    I absolutely loved this book. I was constantly on the edge of my seat. It was wonderful to see the peaces of the puzzle fit together through the book. There were constant twists an turns.
    My god I can’t express how much I loved it.

    Perfect, but now what?

    Loved it. This book leaves me with that rare feeling that I don't know what to read next. Actually, the even rarer condition that I need a break from reading so I can continue to savor this book a little longer. I don't think I can review it properly. However, it's a story intricately wound and wonderfully wicked. I loved getting to know each of the characters, even though Kaz is the star, you learn to appreciate all six of the gang. The settings and fantasy elements were great - sometimes helter skelter and at other times melodic. The ending. That was perfect. It's worthy of recommendation!

    PS - Agree with others that Wylan's narrator was terrible for the part, and still this didn’t affect my enjoyment of the book.

    Storytelling at its finest! L.Bardugo is a master

    Leigh Bardugo does not disappoint in Crooked Kingdom the sequel to Six of Crows. It is the ending of the duology which could have easily been a trilogy...my selfish want as I love the world Leigh has built. As with Six of Crows the book continues with each character providing their POV. Not my favorite style of writing but Leigh pulls it off well in both books.
    Don't want to provide any spoilers but the journey to the end is worth it. Ok..one tiny spoiler which made me VERY HAPPY is Kaz and the crew get help from some very special characters of the Grisha trilogy. Yeah it felt a bit gratuitous on Leigh's part but I enjoyed it anyway.

    Now for the narrators...anytime it gets past 2 narrators I find it distracting. Elizabeth Evans (Nina) and Lauren Fortgang (Inej) were brilliant and well cast to the characters. Their last scenes at the end of the book were AMAZING and worth the whole listen! As for the men...returning narrators Fred Berman (Kaz), Brandon Rubin (Jesper), Jay Snyder (Matthias), Roger Clark (Pekka) gave very consistent performances to Six of Crows and matched the characters well. Jay Snyder made me fall in love with Matthias or maybe with Jay himself ;-). New to Crooked Kingdom...Kevin T Collins (Wylan) and Peter Ganim (Jan). I don't think Kevin gave a bad performance but he had almost all the pronunciations of the characters and the world incorrect which made his performance distracting. I kept correcting him while I was listening. Don't let it deter you from choosing to the book. Just know that it is coming and you will have to suck it up a bit when you listen.

    Great except for one thing

    Book is awesome! I loved it.....except for whoever narrated Wyland and whenever Wyland was talking for Kaz.....holy evil old man gravel. Sort of rediculous!

    Typical

    The performance was great. The story, on the other hand, was typical. If you didn't like Kaz and his crew's relationship from the last book don't expect much of a change here. I will say though that this book is a definite improvement from the last one, but it still needed more character development. The author tried to redeem Kaz's character at the end, but it was kinda too late for that. She spends way too much time trying to make him seem like a badass to actually give him a good story arch. The other characters didn't really add much either. They were all bland and did nothing exceptionally great.

    WHY YOU TAKE MY FAVORITE NARRATOR?!

    You get four stars, sir, simply for not using my favorite narrator from last book. This story is so good, but I felt like I was slapped in the face when we get to Kaz's POV maybe halfway through and IT'S NOT THE SAME GUY! UGH!

    Great story, hit or miss performers

    First of all I love this story, and the different voices are mostly wonderful. Each lends so much to the tale, and whether it was planned this way or not, each sort of lends their own viewpoint--we get to see how each character sounds, from the point of view of each character. The performer for Wyland was a bit off, though--i can't quite describe it, but it was somewhat jarring to listen to, and he made Kaz sound like an old lady, which was an odd choice.

    The performer for Jesper was odd too--after having a normal American accent for the last book and most of this one, towards the end he started having a sort of bastardized cockney/Australian lilt to some things, and not only when Jesper was speaking but when other characters were speaking, too! It was super weird, like why is Nina suddenly talking this way? It made the whole thing seem poorly edited or poorly directed, which is a shame.

    All that being said, this is still one of the most engaging and fun stories I've listened to in a while, and the performers for Kaz and Inej in particular were fantastic. I would absolutely listen to it again.

    So much dialogue, so little plot

    I liked a lot of the world that was built in the first book so I was okay with the first book and stuck with the story through the second. That being said, this book had even less plot and more mindless, unnecessary dialogue. I can not believe how little actually happens in this book, but at least the performances were good. This book is an easy skip in need of an editor with several red pens.

    I love a lot of narrators

    Except for this time. As mentioned, Wyland's voice for Kaz sounds like he was the Wicked Witch. The fact that every narrator did a different voice for each character made it a bit hard to follow. I didn't listen to Six of Crow, I read the physical book, and everything made a lot more sense that when I started listening to this one. Since each character sounds completely different, it's harder to follow, but it still wasn't all bad.

    I loved the actual story, I think it was a great follow up to Six of Crows, and I hope there is another book in the series soon!

    Great story, so-so performance and production

    The story was great. Kept me on the edge of my seat. I really didn't like the narration for Wylan, though. His rendition of Kaz's voice was hard to listen to, his pronunciation of names, places, and words was gratingly inconsistent, and there was an audible hiss throughout.

    How did this get such high reviews?

    I am an hour into the book and really, really dislike it. The first narrator was horrible, the others I listened to much better. The story is torture -- no, really, torture. If you like gang violence, gambling, physical and psychological torture, and can stomach the first narrator, then this book is for you. I had such high hopes after reading Six of Crows. This sequel has gone terribly wrong. I hope that I can return the book.

    Good book but not a satisfying ending.

    If there is one thing that leaves a bad taste in my mouth after reading (or listening to) a book then it is wasted potential. You know like that feeling that you get after a great build up and you start speculating what kind of turn the story is going to take and how much potential the whole thing has.

    And then... nothing.

    While both books have some great aspects to them there are also many flaws and here are some of them:

    - An exagerated use of flashbacks that stops any story progression in its tracks because the autor needs to tell us something that happened in the past. The problem is that the actual plot goes on hold constantly.

    - The character development of some character is really flat. Some are edgy for the sake of being edgy and while some have a nice development to them the amount of irrational decisions sometimes hurts the credibility of those characters.

    - There is many hints and "promises" of story arcs, antagonists or character interactions that never actually happen which leaves you with the question "why the build-up without any follow-up?"

    - An important character gets killed off worse than Boba Fett.

    Overall the books are not bad, it's just the wasted potential that hurts the most and if you can get over "what could've been" and accept the books for what they are you will still mostly enjoy them.

    Extra: All the voice actors/ narrators did an amazing job portraying the different characters. I expected things to get a bit confusing with 6 different characters and POVs, but having a dedicated narrator for each character made it a non-issue and you can instantly recognize whose perspective is being told just by hearing the voice.

    unusually wonderful YA fantasy

    Absolutely fantastic book and really nice voice actors! Expertly written,tightly plotted and populated by a vivid cast of characters. Unfortunately a lot of inconsistent accents and pronunciation.

    cool story

    I really enjoyed the book. I just wish all the narrators could have agreed on hiw to pronounce certain names and terms. That bugged me a bit.

    A true high fantasy masterpiece

    I loved the book. Despite the main characters' youth, this is not a YA, but a masterfully crafted high fantasy. I have read LOTR and Wheel of Time, and swear by Sanderson's Stormlight Archive, but none were so beautifully written as this one.

    The beginning was a bit dragging, but then it delivered and some more. Even better than the story was the choice of the prose. The descriptions were so vivid, so masterfully written, neither the classical literature nor the classical fantasy authors could compete.
    Chapter 33 had me grinning as if I had been one of the crows, savoring every moment as the events I knew were coming unfolded.

    I loved the voice acting for Nina and Jesper chapters, and the one for Matthias and Inej were nice too. But I really had a hard time listening to Wylan's annoying voice in his POV chapters. I wish they had just let a couple of the better narrators read the whole thing.

    I loved every second of it

    Ich habe diese Buch so sehr genossen, das ich es nicht weiter hören wollte. Weil ich wusste das es irgendwann vorbei sein würde und ich wollte mich noch nicht von diesen wunderbaren Charakteren trennen. Schlussendlich habe ich es dann doch fertig gehört, teilweise stundenlang da es schwer war diese Story zu pausieren. Sie ist nie langweilig und man weiss nie wirklich was als nächstes kommt. Die Charaktere sind Facettenreich und entwickeln sich auf realistische Art weiter und die Geschichte ist zwar oft verrückt und magisch, aber stehts glaubwürdig. Kann ich nur weiter empfehlen. Die Sprecher sind ebenfalls super und passen von ihren Stimmen her perfekt zu ihren Charakteren

    Such a satisfying book

    Leigh Bardugo really outdid herself. She created a very satisfying , fast-paced, high-stakes conclusion to this Duology and I couldn't be happier. Anyone who enjoyed the first will most likely read this one anyway but I can only recommend it. I read it/listened to it back to back with the first and I couldn't imagine having to wait in between. This one truly tugged at the heartstrings and still managed to have lots of funny moments without ruining the atmosphere. Every character is realized in their own way and as a reader, you are allowed to get a sense of all of their thoughts and feelings and that makes for a great full picture towards the end.

    Wonderful story

    This book was great. The voice actors read it so well and did it just. I enjoyed it
