It's like THE HUNGER GAMES meets POTTER meets TWILIGHT meets LORD OF THE RINGS meets GAME OF THRONES; basically epic magical fantasy but completely for grown-ups
Unlike anything I've ever read
Mesmerizing . . . shiver-inducing, of the delicious variety. This is what fantasy is for
Bardugo outdoes herself with this book, creating the gorgeously built backdrop of Ketterdam and populating it with a sophisticated cast of rogues and criminals. A twisty and elegantly crafted masterpiece that thrilled me from beginning to end
A delicious blend of masterfully executed elements... Bardugo outdoes herself in this exhilarating follow-up, and series fans will have their eyes glued to every page
Every story is superb, Leigh Bardugo has an honest, vibrant voice that's capable of unfolding her imaginings with true skill. Sara Kiplin's beautiful illustrations grow in complexity . . . making this a sumptuous feast for the mind and eyes

Nikolai is a very intriguing character to read. Sassier than ever, even when everything is getting out of control. Nina's POV is there to break your heart after the events of Crooked Kingdom. Zoya is fun to read. Love the banter between her and Nikolai 😂 The dialogues are killing it!
Fair warning, read the Grisha Trilogy and Six of Crows duology before reading this book to understand it all better. There's a lot of throwbacks to the previous books since the story is intricately woven with them.
Also, the hardcover is damn gorgeous 🌟🥰 The map has been updated. You might get lost just admiring the book instead of actually reading it.

This book talked about all of Nikolai's insecurities and everything he had to fight. We dive into his childhood and his relationship with Dominik, his whipping boy, and his older brother Vasily. It also talked about why he chose to be charming and well-connected.
Overall I loved this book and can't wait for the next.

Let me start out by saying that King of Scars was my top pick book of 2019 and it was not a letdown. I have been super excited about this book since Leigh announced that she was returning to the Grisha world. I know there are a lot of mixed reviews out there about this one, but I really enjoyed it.
So, let me just be honest. If you were expecting something as action packed as Six of Crows, then you are going to be disappointed. No, this is not as tightly plotted as Six of Crows nor is it really in the same realm. It is more like the Grisha Trilogy than anything. Yes, there is action and well written characters, but it really doesn’t have the same vibe as Six of Crows. Before I go on, you really must have read the Grisha Trilogy before reading King of Scars.
I have always really enjoyed Nikolai’s characters. I did feel like that in the Grisha Trilogy that he really didn’t get a big chance to grow and here he does. I know that a lot of people are complaining about his banter and charm not always being present, but it happens. It’s called character development. Characters are like people and they are supposed to change. It’s still Nikolai, but he’s just dealing with some stuff. If you have read the Grisha Trilogy, then you know what I’m talking about.
I really enjoyed Nina’s storyline, almost more than Nikolai. If you don’t know who Nina is, then you need to read Six of Crows. I felt like in King of Scars, she really got her chance to shine. I don’t know if others feel the same way, but it almost felt like in Six of Crows that she was kind of shoved aside. I don’t know if anyone else felt that way. Here, we get to see some serious girl power from her.
Zoya, I really don’t know about her. She is actually one of the few characters in this series that I really don’t care about. It’s not that she’s a poorly written character or anything, it’s just that I really haven’t been able to connect with her like I have with the others.
Now, that ending! Where did that come from? Okay, the ending to this book rates right up there with Harry Potter. I was so shocked when Leigh ended the book that way. I need book two now! She simply cannot leave us hanging like that. (Don’t ruin the book for anyone, please. Spoilers are not cool.)
So anyway, yeah, this book was worth buying. I cannot wait for book two.
What I didn't expect was King of freaking Scars. I am actually left speechless. I am still freaking out about that ending!!!! Did that really happen???? It happened. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh. You guys are in for the ride of your life. You don't see this coming. It's just so much awesomeness!!!!!! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Ok, on the serious note (still freaking out by the way) this one is best understood if you read The Shadow and Bone trilogy, and you might want to give Six of Crows duology a go to cause this one kinda spoils it. Bit man on man is it good. Can not wait for the next one!!
