I rate this book a 4 out of 5 stars.
This was my first “personal choice” book that I have read in over a month. I needed to catch my breath from all the book reviews I have been doing lately.
I struggled through a lack of wanting to read anything, for about the first 75 pages. I just couldn’t get into this book, thankfully I snapped out of it. This book was incredible!! I am quite sure that I have never enjoyed 6 characters as much as I did this bunch. Each came with such a rich back story, and I loved that their stories were spread out, and not all grouped together in one chapter. This book was enthralling, adventurous, and so fast paced, I felt like I breezed right through it. Leigh Bardugo, has such an amazing talent. She builds these worlds that are so rich and descriptive that you feel yourself getting lost in her books. And they are such a treat to read! I am totally #teamKaz I think he was my absolute favorite of the bunch.
Pick this book up guys, get lost in Ketterdam.
“He needed to tell her…what? That she was lovely and brave and better than anything he deserved. That he was twisted, crooked, wrong, but not so broken that he couldn’t pull himself together into some semblance of a man for her. That without meaning to, he’d begun to lean on her, to look for her, to need her near. He needed to thank her for his new hat.” -Leigh Bardugo
