General Note: Sequel to: Six of crows.
Summary: 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. -- from dust jacket.

    *Starred Review* A last-minute double-cross at the end of Six of Crows (2015) left Kaz and his gang in a tight spot—Inej has been captured, they never got their money, and, thanks to their new companion, a highly sought-after Grisha, they're desperate to stay out of sight. But that's not enough to stop Kaz, who concocts gambit after gambit to retrieve Inej, swindle vicious merchant Jan Van Eck out of his wealth and reputation, and finally get their hands on the cash they're owed. Bardugo cultivates an evocative, visceral sense of place, seamlessly weaving world building background into the narrative without resorting to clunky expository dialogue. Kaz's harebrained but brilliant schemes and Bardugo's twisty plot both walk a tightrope—she deftly misdirects readers' attention by revealing some secrets and elsewhere keeping her audience teasingly in the dark. Amid all the hairpin plot turns and immersive scene setting, Bardugo keeps the focus on her vivid, charming characters, slowly revealing secrets from their pasts, which offer meaty context for their actions and motivations, and following their moving, redemptive growth in the present. It's a delicious blend of masterfully executed elements, and while Bardugo ties up many loose ends, she leaves a few threads tantalizingly dangling. Knowledge of the first book is required, naturally, but Bardugo outdoes herself in this exhilarating follow-up, and series fans will have their eyes glued to every page. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Fans of Six of Crows, which got cozy on the New York Times best-seller list, already know about this one, and they're champing at the bit. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.

    Gr 7 Up—Teens will be excited to return to Bardugo's marvelous world, first visited in her "Grisha Trilogy" and in this duology's previous Six of Crows. They will be treated to a visit from old friends—the graceful (and deadly) Inej; Nina, the Grisha Heartrender; Wylan, the discarded, illiterate merchant's son; and the mysterious and vengeful Kaz. Characters from the original trilogy (most notably Stormhund, prince-turned-privateer) also make an entrance in the heart of the slums of Ketterdam. Plots to take control of the city's underworld abound as Kaz rallies his allies and takes on the might of the rapacious merchant class and Pekka Rollins, King of the Barrel and ruler of the dregs of the city. Following the death of his brother, the antihero has surrounded himself with the castoffs of Ketterdam, all of them very young, defective in some way, and abandoned. Together they will either rule the city victoriously or fail magnificently. While it isn't absolutely necessary to have read the other titles in Bardugo's series, readers will be better served by this continuation if they are already familiar with the complex world and characters. This fast-paced dive into the Barrel, where fortunes are made and lost and life itself hangs in the balance, will keep readers enthralled long past bedtime. VERDICT A must-purchase for all YA collections.—Jane Henriksen Baird, Anchorage Public Library, AK. Copyright 2016 School Library Journal.
