Review // Crooked Kingdom

Review // Crooked Kingdom

Warning: This review contains mild spoilers

β€œHow many times have you told me you’re a monster? So be a monster. Be the thing they all fear when they close their eyes at night.”

The fantastic thing about Crooked Kingdom is that while it may not have beenΒ everythingΒ I wanted, it was everything that it needed to be.

Once again, it was driven forcibly off the edges of cliff by its wonderfully 3D characters, as Bardugo’s writing is wont to do. If Kaz was a monster in Six of Crows, then he was every bit more monstrous. And aside from him and Inej and in some broad strokes, Matthias, the other three crows had to face all kinds of demons that they’d been toying with at the end of Six of Crows and really bring the battle to the foreground.

If Six of Crows was the book of Kaz, Inej and Matthais, then Crooked Kingdom belonged to Nina, Jesper and Wylan.

MAY EBOOK WRAP UP

Super nu feature!

So first, fact about me.

I hate ebooks!

I hate that you can’t take photos of it prettily, I hate that you can have a humongous library of books in some device and you can’t lovingly gaze at it or take selfies, that you can’t smell them or feel them or pet them or in some cases – not often, if it makes you feel any better – taste them! *Cait is the one who eats books, I just taste.*

But I am poor, as poor as them church mice in Disney’s β€˜foxy’ Robin Hood which leaves me no choice if I want to read 28 gazillion books and is threatened to be struck out of the family register when mine and my family’s food money mysteriously disappears through the black hole residing over PayPal.
