Inhaltsangabe

Surrounded by enemies, the once-great nation of Ravka has been torn in two by the Shadow Fold, a swath of near impenetrable darkness crawling with monsters who feast on human flesh. Now its fate may rest on the shoulders of one lonely refugee.

Alina Starkov has never been good at anything. But when her regiment is attacked on the Fold and her best friend is brutally injured, Alina reveals a dormant power that saves her life—a power that could be the key to setting her war-ravaged country free. Wrenched from everything she knows, Alina is whisked away to the royal court to be trained as a member of the Grisha, the magical elite led by the mysterious Darkling.

Yet nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. With darkness looming and an entire kingdom depending on her untamed power, Alina will have to confront the secrets of the Grisha… and the secrets of her heart.

Maybe I'm not the target audience...

...but this book seems terrible to me. No characterization of the characters, obvious plot twists, a school system that for some reason has to have a tribe system like any young adult book in the last twenty years.
Even the reader seems bored, speeding through the "emotional" parts and slowing down in the description parts, with no pathos. I am aware that reading a book aloud is not an easy job, but this is not a very well read book.
I couldn't finish it and I can't recommend it.

A perfectly ordinary fantasy adventure

After listening to the "Six of Crows" duology I wanted to hear more stories about the amazing grishaverse. However, since I had already heard that this book wasn't as good as the duology, I wasn't too disappointed. The main character is pretty much the typical fantasy mc and a lot of other characters also fit perfectly into this mainstream standard.

Nonetheless, the story itself was mostly exciting and didn't bore me most of the time. What I really enjoy about Leigh Bardugo's writing is the way she can make me hate the villains so much. If you are really invested into the grishaverse after reading/listening to "Six of Crows" I would recommend listening to this, too. It gives more insight to how this world works and also some background information about certain characters that briefly show up in "Crooked Kingdom". However, be prepared for less diverse and less interesting characters.

The speaker was quite good, only at the beginning I found that she emphasized certain sentences a little odd. Other than that, I thought she was lovely to listen to.

lazy writing, bland characters

first off: narration
even though i wasn't in love with the narrator, she is a real pro. the range of voices could be higher and more distinctive, but good performance allround.
now the book:
i honestly just listened to this because i was extremely bored at work (manual labour). the characters have no real development, everything is happening way too quickly for any kind of atmosphere to arise. the story is predictable right to the "i save the day with my awesome powers, everybody knows i have for like 2/3rds of the book"-moment.
conclusion: if you have something better, please recommend it to me, i m really desperate, even listening to this uninspired YA-novel.
PS: the world has potential though.

I am in love.

A beautiful book with amazing characters.
I love the Russia-inspired setting and also, hallelujah, the person reading it didn't butcher the names.

Very good

This Audio book is excellent. However, the story didn't captivate me as much as Leigh Bardugo's other work. It'd still recommend it though and the speaker is fantastic!

Simply a brilliant

It's now one of my favorite book series so far. The story is thrilling and the world has so many details to offer that I'd wish there were even more books of this series.
