Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo is my most anticipated read this year. I loved Six of Crows and this sequel lived up to all my expectations. If you enjoy fantasy and grey characters, this duology is a must read. You can read my full review here. Cover is linked to Goodreads.

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.a bird?”
