MY RATING: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
38/50 – 2021 Goodreads Challenge
I enjoyed this so much more than book 1, Six of Crows. I still had some issues with it so I didn’t want to give it 5 stars. As I said in my review of Six of Crows, I recommend reading the books rather than listening to the audio or using kindle whispersync to read/listen.
“The really bad monsters never look like monsters.”
The story was much better and the twists were a lot less predictable. We get even more backstory on the characters to help flesh them out more and I enjoyed that as well as it didn’t feel like filler this time.
I came away loving Kaz a lot more than I expected I would. Such a great grey character that is both good and evilish, and Inej… well that’s one bad young lady!
“I would come for you, and no matter how broken you were, we’d fight our way out together -knives drawn, pistols blazing. Because that’s what we do. We never stop fighting.”
The biggest issue that I had with this book was the fact that Jesper’s narrator was horrendous at attempting to read female voices (not to mention he sounded more like a 40 year old life long smoker, rather than a teen/young adult). It was at a point where when I saw his name come up on a chapter I rolled my eyes and would’ve rather skipped the entire chapter instead of having to hear him butcher voices.
