OH.MY.GOD. I loved Leigh Bardugo’s Greisha series and so was SUPER excited when I saw she had something new out.
She doesn’t disappoint.
I loved everything about this book, from the world (the same one as in the Greisha series), to the characters (I think I have a soft spot for sassy gang leaders — think Han in the Seven Realms series by Cinda Williams Chima), to the cover art!
There were some obvious romantic interests, but each character was so individual and their backstories so well told that it really didn’t matter.
With a lot of violence and the loose moral compass (these are gang members we are talking about here, don’t expect much good out of them), this is probably better suited to older readers.
I cannot wait to read Crooked Kingdom!
