Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I loved this author's Grisha trilogy that starts with Shadow and Bone. She can build a fantasy world like no other--this book uses the same Russian-esque (is that a word? No, but it sounds good) world that I loved in the trilogy.
But I wasn't invested in this story like I was in her earlier books. Reminding me of Dickens a bit, the entire book is all about thieves trying to steal something. I loved the characters, but the action took forever, and I found myself skimming a bit to move myself along. Maybe 462 pages was too long? Tighter editing might have helped it for me.
