Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

I was COMPLETELY BLOWN AWAY by this one. Six amazing main characters (I LOVED – and sometimes hated – ALL OF THEM; so much bosom-clutching), great world-building (great expansion of the world we glimpsed in Bardugo’s Grisha trilogy), and plenty of cutthroat action. The marketing blurb says “Ocean’s Eleven meets Game of Thrones” but this to me was reminiscent of Scott Lynch’s Gentleman Bastards series and Sanderson’s Mistborn books. A great book for cross-promotion to adult fantasy fans as well. That cliffhanger though???????!!!!!
