YOUNG ADULT URBAN FANTASY: The Dregs 1: Six of Crows - Leigh Bardugo

Release Date: 29/09/15
Publisher:  Quercus


The Grisha Trilogy introduced readers to the irresistible fantasy world of the Grisha - and now Leigh Bardugo brings us a new sweeping epic.

Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price - and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy, Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can't pull it off alone.

A convict with a thirst for revenge.
A sharpshooter who can't walk away from a wager.
A runaway with a privileged past.
A spy known as the Wraith.
A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums.
A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes.

Six dangerous outcasts. One impossible heist. Kaz's crew is the only thing that might stand between the world and destruction - if they don't kill each other first.

Leigh Bardugo's writing has captivated readers since SHADOW AND BONE was published in 2012. SIX OF CROWS will take Leigh's fans back into the world they know and love. As gripping, sweeping and memorable as The Grisha Trilogy, this is perfect for fans of Laini Taylor, Kristin Cashore and Game of Thrones.


Darkly delicious and a delight to enjoy between the sheets and whilst you won’t be getting much sleep as you’ll promise yourself one more chapter before bed, will leave you sat there until the final page is tuned. As usual with Leigh, it’s a quirky book, one that has great prose but for me, what she does best is create characters that are not only memorable but people you care about.

Add to this dialogue that helps endear them more to the reader alongside furthering the story and all round you’ll have a tale that will leave you gasping for more. Cracking.
