It's time to talk about one of the best books that exist in the world in this very moment. Believe me, I read a lot, so I know what I'm talking about. It's called "Six of Crows" and if you love morally gray characters, heists, and the found family trope, this book is for you.
Kaz Brekker is a thief living in Ketterdam, a mysterious city full of criminals. One day a very rich merchant asks him to accomplish an impossible heist, which consists in stealing back a prisoner from the impenetrable Ice Court.
Kaz knows he can't do that alone, so he recruits five other people with special talents and abilities. Will they succeed? Or will they end up killing each other even before entering the Ice Court? Well, you have to read the book to find out!
If you watched the tv series "Shadow and Bone" on Netflix and you loved Kaz, Inej, and Jesper, well, chances are you'll love "Six of Crows" too, because it talks about their adventures!
But beware, this is actually the first book of a duology (so two books). The second book's name is "Crooked Kingdom" and if I were you I'd get it right after starting to like the first book. Believe me, you need to have it near you the moment you finish "Six of Crows". You can thank me later.
So there you have it friends! You should absolutely read this duology. I promise it's worth it.
