Summary
See the Grishaverse come to life on screen with Shadow and Bone, now a Netflix original series. Crooked Kingdom is the #1 New York Times-bestselling Book Two in the Six of Crows Duology. Now in paperback with a brand-new exclusive piece of art, an interview with Leigh Bardugo and a sneak peek of her next book. When you can't beat the odds, change the game. 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 badly weakened, 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 the Grisha world. #1 New York Times bestseller, October 16, 2016Read all the books in the Grishaverse!The Shadow and Bone Trilogy (previously published as The Grisha Trilogy) Shadow and Bone Siege and Storm Ruin and Rising The Six of Crows Duology Six of Crows Crooked KingdomThe King of Scars DuologyKing of Scars The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous MagicThe Severed Moon: A Year-Long Journal of MagicPraise for the Grishaverse "A master of fantasy." —The Huffington Post "Utterly, extremely bewitching." —The Guardian "This is what fantasy is for." —The New York Times Book Review "[A] world that feels real enough to have its own passport stamp." —NPR "The darker it gets for the good guys, the better." —Entertainment Weekly "Sultry, sweeping and picturesque. . . .

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* A last-minute double-cross at the end of Six of Crows (2015) left Kaz and his gang in a tight spot Inej has been captured, they never got their money, and, thanks to their new companion, a highly sought-after Grisha, they're desperate to stay out of sight. But that's not enough to stop Kaz, who concocts gambit after gambit to retrieve Inej, swindle vicious merchant Jan Van Eck out of his wealth and reputation, and finally get their hands on the cash they're owed. Bardugo cultivates an evocative, visceral sense of place, seamlessly weaving world building background into the narrative without resorting to clunky expository dialogue. Kaz's harebrained but brilliant schemes and Bardugo's twisty plot both walk a tightrope she deftly misdirects readers' attention by revealing some secrets and elsewhere keeping her audience teasingly in the dark. Amid all the hairpin plot turns and immersive scene setting, Bardugo keeps the focus on her vivid, charming characters, slowly revealing secrets from their pasts, which offer meaty context for their actions and motivations, and following their moving, redemptive growth in the present. It's a delicious blend of masterfully executed elements, and while Bardugo ties up many loose ends, she leaves a few threads tantalizingly dangling. Knowledge of the first book is required, naturally, but Bardugo outdoes herself in this exhilarating follow-up, and series fans will have their eyes glued to every page. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Fans of Six of Crows, which got cozy on the New York Times best-seller list, already know about this one, and they're champing at the bit.--Hunter, Sarah Copyright 2016 Booklist"
