See the Grishaverse come to life on screen with Shadow and Bone, now a Netflix original series.

Enter the Grishaverse with the #1 New York Times–bestselling Six of Crows, Book One of the Six of Crows Duology.

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.

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo returns to the breathtaking world of the Grishaverse in this unforgettable tale about the opportunity—and the adventure—of a lifetime.

Praise for Six of Crows:

Six of Crows is a twisty and elegantly crafted masterpiece that thrilled me from the beginning to end.” –New York Times-bestselling author Holly Black

Six of Crows [is] one of those all-too-rare, unputdownable books that keeps your eyes glued to the page and your brain scrambling to figure out what’s going to happen next.” –Michael Dante DiMartino, co-creator of Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra

“There's conflict between morality and amorality and an appetite for sometimes grimace-inducing violence that recalls the Game of Thrones series. But for every bloody exchange there are pages of crackling dialogue and sumptuous description. Bardugo dives deep into this world, with full color and sound. If you're not careful, it'll steal all your time.” —The New York Times Book Review

    But everyone you need to read shadow and bone before you read this it makes this book and I’m reading crooked kingdom now and they mention lots of things from shadow and bone and if you read shadow and bone first you find out things that are very important to crooked kingdom if you insist you read six of crows first then read six of crows then shadow and bone trilogy and the crooked kingdom then the Nickolai books but that’s not the way you should it needs to be shadow and bone trilogy then six of crows and crooked kingdom then king of scars then rule of wolfs.

    I’m gonna be honest I did not think I would like it, but boy was a wrong. The world building is absolutely amazing. The background of all the characters is so well developed and thought out. Each chapter will leave you wanting more. This book had me SCREAMING (in a good way). The ending was just wow. Kaz Brekker supremacy.

    This is the best book series I’ve ever read. I couldn’t put down this book and ended up late to my classes, oh well. The characters are so diverse and well written that I fell in love with each individual. I also enjoyed that this book was fast paced. It was bit predictable, but the things that came to pass that I saw coming had huge twists. One hundred percent recommend, I just wish I could newly read this again!
  • Gold Standard For YA Fiction: READ IT!

    Six of Crows is a magical heist novel, filled with an intricate and fast paced plot, cunning, diverse, and intelligent characters, hilarious banter, genuine relationships, and phenomenal world building, all with high stakes that keep you hooked from the first chapter. While I don’t think it’s absolutely necessary to read the Grisha trilogy to understand SOC, it is definitely beneficial to do so in order to fully understand the dynamics and stakes at hand, and I regret not reading it beforehand. This duology has renewed my hope in YA, and it set my standards in books really high. If you liked the Lunar Chronicles, this is basically the more mature heist version of it. Do yourself a favor and read this amazing book ASAP!!!

    My attention span is so low that I usually get bored of books that aren’t well written but this was ✨refreshing✨ The character development was on point, no plot holes or pauses, entertaining from start to finish. Also I love the concept of anti-hero types. Not necessarily a good guy but not all that bad kinda main characters. Mary Sue characters really ain’t it. The complexity and diversity of the characters made it better and more interesting. I was tired of reading literally the same boring book in this genre. Although I have no idea how to pronounce fjerda and other names from the book it didn’t matter because I understood the context and wasn’t confused out of my mind by droning descriptions. I finally found a good read! And I’m super excited for the next book :))
