Happy Book Birthday @LBardugo! Crooked Kingdom Out Now

Happy book birthday, Leigh Bardugo! I don't know about you guys, but I've been really excited about this book ever since I read Six of Crows back in December. I preordered the hardcover and everything and thanks to Amazon, got release day delivery. Woo!

Here's the description:

The highly anticipated sequel to the thrilling #1 New York Times-bestselling Six of Crows.
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.

What I loved about Six of Crows:

*The characters
*The dialogue
*The world building

For example:

Kaz leaned back. "What's the easiest way to steal a man's wallet?"
"Knife to the throat?" asked Inej.
"Gun to the back?" said Jesper.
"Poison in his cup?" suggested Nina.
"You're all horrible," said Matthias.

Come on, guys--that's gold! I loved every minute of it. And I have high hopes that Crooked Kingdom is just as awesome. This book is available on Amazon, and I'm sure all other retailers.
