“No Mourners, No Funerals” is the motto of the Dregs, a gang of ragtag misfits from the slums lead by the infamous Dirtyhands, the devil himself: Kaz Brekker. This story is one of adventure, heists, romance and plotting. It’s filled with cunning, thievery, some plain, pure luck and anything else needed to capture your heart.
I actually first read Six of Crows two years ago but I don’t remember it having much of a lasting effect on me. Even back then, it was a very popular read so I was a little confused as to why I didn’t enjoy it as much as the majority of readers. That’s why I re-read it these past few days and let me tell you, do I love it now! The book follows Kaz and his crew along on an adventure that, if successfully completed (or should I say, survived), would end up with them all becoming absolutely, undeniably, filthy rich. However, it comes with a cost, as money often does. This mission is impossible, borderline suicidal and requires just about all the miracles you could possibly wring from your luck bank.
I loved this book SO, SO much the second time around which makes me wonder what kind of a person I even was back in 7th grade to not have enjoyed it. I loved the characters with their odd, dynamic relationships and tortured backstories. So, so dramatic but I soaked it all in anyway 🙂
This book gets a 9/10 from me, the last point being that the ending was way to open for my liking but that’s why there’s a sequel (which I’ll definitely be reading :)) !!
