It is rare I give a book 5 stars.  This one merits each and every one of them.  This book was so difficult to put down.  I just couldn’t predict what would happen next and in the world of formulaic YA literature, that is a rare gem.

This sequel to Six of Crows had some sappy parts, but in general the characters were multidimensional and all so deeply damaged that their lives of crime were not glorified.

The darker, brutally ruthless acts of violence may make this book better suited to older readers who can analyze the psychological trauma that put the characters in the situations they found themselves.

I am going to miss these characters, but I like that Ms. Bardugo didn’t draw the story out into a trilogy with a disappointing finale as is often the trend.
