Waiting on Wednesday (#169): Crooked Kingdom 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:


Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
Book Two of the Six of Crows series
Publisher: Henry Holt and Co. 
Publication Date: September 27, 2016

Summary (from Goodreads):

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. 



I feel like the whole world is waiting for this book, after the awe-inspiring awesomeness that was Six of Crows. :D
