Editorial Reviews

Review

A New York Times Bestseller

"Lushly designed and wonderfully rendered ... Bardugo doesn’t twist familiar tales so much as rip them open." ―Booklist, starred review

"Strong writing, compelling stories, and gorgeous illustrations make this collection a must-have." ―School Library Journal, starred review

"Beautiful imagery conceived from precise, beautiful prose; beautiful cover image and interior illustrations that creep across each page toward a beautiful consummation; beautiful lands inhabited by beautiful hearts." ―VOYA, starred review

"Elegantly crafted...stylishly intricate illustrations...all fans of the darker side of folktales and folktale-like stories will find the stories satisfyingly full of pain, danger, and vengeance." ―The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review

"Gorgeously otherworldly...Any lover of retellings or original fairy tales will enjoy." ―Kirkus Reviews

“Gorgeous, cruel and almost wistful windows onto the dreamscapes and hard lessons of [Bardugo’s] alternate universe … fairy tales with all the darkness intact.” ―NPR Book Review

"Those who seem innocent are shown to be guilty, one-dimensional characters become more complicated, and mothers who once were absent are given presence and power.” ―Mashable

"This new collection will intrigue, awe, frighten, and inspire both stalwart fans and new readers looking for a heady spoonful of fantasy.” ―Hypable

"This nightmare-inducing collection is short but powerful, each tale as brilliant and absorbing as the one before... brilliant storytelling” ―Romantic Times

"Marvelous tales, as full of twists and delights and strangeness as anything found in the Grimm Brothers. Leigh Bardugo is a master." ―Kelly Link, author of Get in Trouble

Praise for Crooked Kingdom:

“It’s a delicious blend of masterfully executed elements ... Bardugo outdoes herself in this exhilarating follow-up, and series fans will have their eyes glued to every page.”―Booklist, starred review.

“Un-put-down-able excitement from beginning to end.” ―Kirkus Reviews, starred review.

“Bardugo’s ingenious plotting that characterized Crows is again on full display, and the backstories, loyalties, flaws, and romantic alliances….are richly developed.” ―The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (BCCB), starred review

Praise for Six of Crows:

“This has all the right elements to keep readers enthralled: an entertainingly combative team of skilled misfits, a twisty plot, and a nerve-wracking cliffhanger.” ―Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Cracking page-turner with a multi ethnic band of misfits with differing sexual orientations who satisfyingly, believably jell into a family.”―Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“This is an easy choice for teens who enjoyed the Grisha Trilogy, Diviners, or any of the Shadowhunter books.”
VOYA, starred review

Her short stories can be found in multiple anthologies, including Best American Science Fiction & Fantasy. Leigh grew up in Southern California and graduated from Yale University. These days she lives and writes in Los Angeles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book but arrived damaged
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on May 12, 2020
I’m rating the book five stars as the writing cannot be faulted and I am an absolute fan of Leigh Bardugo!

However, I was disappointed when I opened the packaging and the book arrived slightly damaged in the bottom left hand corner (pictures attached). I am an avid book reader and take a lot of care of my books so seeing this was annoying.
