    Locke Lamoras lögner av Scott Lynch (ajwseven, Carnophile)
    Carnophile: Who'd win in a fight between the Locke Lamora gang and the Kaz Brekker gang? I NEED to see this. No, it's not a contest, but boy would that be a fun read.

    Lejoninnans sång. Alanna : det första äventyret av Tamora Pierce (wordcauldron)
    wordcauldron: Alanna's George was my first exposure to books about thieving, espionage, gangs, assassins, etc., and this book sort of seemed to me like an in-depth look at that side of life (though a little more violent than it would have been in Alanna's universe), plus Alanna's all about magic and dangerous adventures and such.… (mer)

It’s not often that I follow along with the hype, let alone enjoy the product.

It did take me a bit to really get into the novel. Personally, I think the beginning is very convoluted and should have been tightened up a little more. Of course, it is always better to show and not to tell, but so many trivial characters were introduced with names and backstories and feelings who then just disappeared. By the time the reader gets to the pivotal group, they’ve already been burnt and put through the ringer. I had to put it down for a few days, forget the first chapter or three, and then come back to it once I was ready to commit to the merry bunch of thieves.

From then on, I loved it.

The characters are really the selling point of the story, and the author has done such an amazing job in creating a fresh, multicultural and vibrant cast. Inej was such a breath of fresh air, and the relationship between Jesper and Wylan quickly became a highlight. Kaz is suave beyond his years, and gives me flashes to all the great characters I feel in love with as a kid; The Artful Dodger and Jimmy the Hand. And his relationship with Inej was neither tedious, forced or over the top. I don’t think I’ve rooted so much for a developing couple in… forever.

The writing style was also a pleasant surprise, especially for the genre. It was easy to get swept away in locations, and even easier to tumble down into the minds of the POV character. Bardugo really let you get to know her characters. You see what makes them tick, and what lingers deep below the surface of their thoughts.

My only gripe with the novel was its target audience. There’s a huge trending push for publishers to shape their writers/only accept YA stories at the moment, and as someone past that age group, it’s getting pretty redundant. Yes, historically people matured and aged faster back in the time period this fantasy is based on, but it can still be quite the stretch when some of the characters are said to be 16 and yet have been through so much.

Having said that, I really (really, really, really, REALLY!) appreciated the differences this book brought to the genre. There wasn’t a love triangle in sight! Characters were rich and strong in all their own ways. No damsels in distress, but also no ‘perfect at everything’ typical protagonists either. There was clear balance and give and take between them all. Not every thought a character had revolved around their crush - in fact, that didn't happen often, and it actually left me excited for the moments when people came together and opened up.

I guess I just wish that there were more gripping stories like this (inclusive and quirky) with characters aged more appropriately for their worldly personalities.

so um wow??? honestly the writing was so good. interesting and compelling characters, excellent world building, and a plot that kept me on the edge of my seat. i can't wait to read the sequel! ( )

More fantasy and adventure than I was expecting. It was sold to me as Ocean's 11, but it's definitely not that. This should have good appeal across different kinds of readers, and it sets up the next book nicely. One or two instances of cussing and a bit of violence, but that's overshadowed by good dialogue and story. There is also a pretty strong theme of learning to accept "the other" which comes out subtly as the book progresses. ( )

I've run through this six times since I got it. That's about all I have to say about how much I love my Crows. :) Bless the friend who recommended it to me. I'm pretty sure I'm only still breathing because of this book and it's sequel. ( )
