The highly anticipated sequel to the thrilling New York Times best-selling Six of Crows.
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.
Customer ReviewsSee All
I love these books. Written really really well! But I made the mistake of getting the audio version this time and crap, it's awful. The narrators who play wylan and kazs' characters are really bad. When wylans narrator puts on a "kaz" voice it's terrible!! He makes him sounds like a reedy 100 year old man! Kaz is supposed to be young, stubborn and somewhat cold. Not old and weak and whiney sounding. I do enjoy Jesper's narrator. His voice is smooth as silk and I could listen to him all day and all night. The female narrators are ok, too. They didn't stand out as great or terrible. Same goes for Matthias' narrator...he was OK, kind of boring but it goes ok with Mattias' character. But the kaz and wylan parts are bad enough to make me fast forward :-(
bad narration and directing
The story is interesting, and I wanted to fininsh listening to the book, but some of the character actors are overdoing their attempts to capture an authentic voice. The person who does Kaz tries to put too much drama into every syllable, and another actor makes a voice like Millhouse on the Simpsons. Would have been better with one skilled actor.
