Yesterday the Los Angeles Times revealed the cover Crooked Kingdom, the sequel to Six of Crows by fantasy superauthor, Leigh Bardugo.
Six of Crows was released in September 2014 and was described as a step up from her already bestselling Grisha trilogy. It follows a band of misfits, ostracized from society, they survive by cheating, lying, and killing — all while each others’ throats.
Having enjoyed Bardugo’s Grisha trilogy, I waited for the reviews to pour in. After gathering a slew of four and five-star reviews, I ordered SOC during release week. And of course, I still haven’t read it.
That aside, I was still patiently awaiting the arrival of the cover for the sequel once Bardugo announced the cover will be coming our way on Feb 22. I was a little hesistant because of SOC’s cover style, but I was pleasantly surprised when the designer was able to keep the style alive with its sequel.
See the cover and synopsis for Leigh Bardugo’s newest release, Crooked Kingdom, below the cut. Crooked Kingdom is set for release on September 27, 2016.
Kaz Brekker and his crew have just pulled off a heist so daring even they didn’t think they’d survive. But instead of divvying up a fat reward, they’re right back to fighting for their lives. Double-crossed and left crippled by the kidnapping of a valuable team member, the crew is low on resources, allies, and hope. As powerful forces from around the world descend on Ketterdam to root out the secrets of the dangerous drug known as jurda parem, old rivals and new enemies emerge to challenge Kaz’s cunning and test the team’s fragile loyalties. A war will be waged on the city’s dark and twisting streets―a battle for revenge and redemption that will decide the fate of magic in the Grisha world. (Source: Goodreads)
