Waiting on Wednesday (#129): Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


This week, I'm featuring:


Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Book One of the Dregs series
Publisher: Henry Holt and Company
Publication Date: September 29, 2015

Summary (from Goodreads):

Game of Thrones meets Ocean's Eleven in this brand-new book in the world of the Grisha by New York Times-bestselling author 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 convict with a thirst for revenge.

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.



Because it's Leigh Bardugo! I liked her debut trilogy. Also, that cover!

  2. Oh my gosh! I had no idea she was coming out with a new series! I love, love, loved the Grisha Trilogy, so I'm so psyched there's more from the land of the Grisha! Her covers are the coolest, and this one's amazing as well!

    1. Amen! I was the same - I read Shadow and Bone, and didn't read Siege and Storm until a whiiiiiile later. In fact, I binge-read Siege and Storm and Ruin and Rising last year, back to back.

      I hope so too, Liza!
