Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine that showcases upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating. Here at Completely Booked, this week’s pick for Waiting on Wednesday is:
Title: Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows #2)
Author: Leigh Bardugo
Publisher: Henry Holt and Co.
Publication Date: September 27, 2016
Summary (From Goodreads): 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 left crippled by the kidnapping of a valuable team member, 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 magic in the Grisha world.
Thoughts: I am so excited for the second Six of Crows book. I mean, a lot of the book world is, for very good reason. The first book wrapped up the first arc very well by completely ruining my life and ability to ever love anyone or anything ever again and this one will hopefully tie things up. I’m just worried because apparently character deaths have been hinted at and I am not ready to lose any of my darlings, but especially Wylan and Jesper because they were very neglected in the first book.
