Six of Crows (MP3 CD)
Summer 2018 Reading Group Indie Next List
“An impossible heist, a fantasy world, and a crew of six very different people brought together in their quest for a life-changing fortune. Quietly dazzling in its complexity, Leigh Bardugo’s newest is the type of book that makes the rest of the world drop away while reading it. This book will consume you in the way only a brilliant fantasy book can. With characters that felt so real I wanted to meet them, and an action packed plot with plenty of subterfuge, intrigue, and complicated relationships, this book will quickly vault to the top of your favorite books list and firmly entrench itself there… at least until the sequel.”

Enter the Grishaverse!
This is the first book in Leigh Bardugo's "Six of Crows" duology. Fans of YA Fantasy and the movie "Suicide Squad" will be sucked into this world! Set in the loosely European inspired backdrop of Ketterdam, a city known for crime and gangs, "protagonist" and criminal mastermind, Kaz Brekker, pulls together a ragtag team of thieves, miscreants, and magical grisha to pull off an impossible heist. This group has been cast aside by society and is constantly being hunted for their crimes but you can't help but root for these unique characters who have to work together to save the world and each other. The story alternates between each character’s viewpoint so you will never be bored. You will want to stay up all night reading until you find out how Kaz’s gang will get out of all the trouble they’re in. Then, watch Ketterdam’s finest come to life in the new hit Netflix show "Shadow and Bone," which is based on this series along with the “Shadow and Bone” trilogy, also by Leigh Bardugo.
Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price--and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can't pull it off alone....

A sharpshooter who can't walk away from a wager.
A runaway with a privileged past.
A spy known as the Wraith.
A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums.
A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes.
Six dangerous outcasts. One impossible heist. Kaz's crew is the only thing that might stand between the world and destruction-if they don't kill each other first.
