Blog Tour: Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo



Welcome to the CROOKED KINGDOM blog tour! Today we're spotlighting Wylan - a character I definitely needed more of after Six of Crows!




Leigh Bardugo on Wylan:
"A lot of people have asked why Wylan didn't have POV chapters in Six of Crows. I wrote some, but the voice felt all wrong for the book, and I think it was because Wylan really wasn’t a member of the crew yet. I loved writing his chapters in Crooked Kingdom, not only because I really got a chance to get to know him, but because he's led a much more sheltered life than the other characters."

The Irish Banana Review on Wylan:
I am so excited that we're getting more Wylan in CROOKED KINGDOM! Six of Crows left me wanting more of Wylan. His struggles absolutely endeared him to me, making him a quiet favorite. I loved his innocence and almost wanted to put him in a protective bubble, but I can't wait to see him come into his own!



About CROOKED KINGDOM:
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 left crippled by the kidnapping of a valuable team member, 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 magic in the Grisha world.

  10. It makes sense not to have his POV in SoC because it didn't feel like he was really one of the crew until the end. That being said, I am looking forward to reading from Wylan's POV in Crooked Kingdom!!! - Jocelyne T

  24. Wylan is such a cutie and I am excited/nervous to see how his life turns out since Nina altered him to look like Kuwei Yul-Bo.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I like Leigh's response, about Wylan not quite being a member of the crew (yet!). Though part of me wants to believe that her adding him to Crooked Kingdom's POVs means that she's going to be taking away one of them... *braces self* I can't wait to read this book! Hopefully my preorder arrives speedily. :D

    Wonderful post, Hannah!

  48. We get Wylan's POV in Crooked Kingdom? Yes! Wylan was the sweetest character! I can't wait to see his development in the next book. However, with this crew I hope he can keep a little of his innocence ;)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Wylan's an interesting character since he started out as an outsider. It's cool to hear the author's reasoning for not giving him POVs in the first book.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Wylan is the one character who's POV that I've been eagerly looking forward to. Can't wait!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I feel like the Wylan chapters in CK are going to surprise us and I like that it will be a 'new' thing in this book from Six of Crows. Bardugo is always keeping us on our toes and I LOVE it!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I love wylan's voice in the sample chapters! I can't wait to hear more from him

  53. Im so pumped for a crooked kingdom

  54. Six of Crows is just a big ship/OTP group, with all your fav kinds. Like, we have the LGBT (Wylan/Jesper), the contrasting dynamic (Nina/Matthias), and then we have the emo (Kaz/Inej). XD I LOVE THEM SO MUCH.

  55. I'm SO so excited to more of Wylan, and to see how things go for him & Jesper ;) ~ Danielle D.

    ReplyDelete
  56. One of my favorite things from Six of Crows is seeing the friendship between Wylan and Jesper develop. Although I wish I could pretend to be strong like Inej or flirty like Nina, the truth is that I'd be so out of my element with this crew, much like Wylan!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Wylan is that kid on the playground that kind of ignored and kind of bullied. Something about him makes me want to protect him. I appreciate that none of the Dregs are cruel to him, they tease and play but they don't bully him. The reveal at the end of Six of Crows is just so heartbreaking for Wylan, but it seems like a big jumping off point for his growth. - scolt81

  58. I cannot wait to read Crooked Kingdom!!! Wylan is such a mysterious character and we learned so much about him at the end of the first book and I am excited to learn more.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I am super insanely excited to read Wylans POV when I originally saw the poster art from Six of Crows showing all the different characters and reading the Blog Tour information I felt the most drawn to him. So was kind of sad I didn't get to read more about him. BUT!! I AM SO EXCITED TO READ HIS POV!!

    AND I NOW HAVE THE BOOK IN MY HANDS!!!

    (Btw! The audiobook of Six of Crows and I am sure Crooked Kingdom is fantastic!)

  60. I can't wait to read this! I just got the book in the mail today, and just got the email about all the awesome preorder stuff, which will be delivered tomorrow. It's like early Christmas!

  62. I was curious as to why Waylan didn't have any POVs in SoC, it's nice to actually know why.
