Will there be a Six of Crows book 3? A question seemingly asked by everyone who’s read the books, and yet there’s no exact answer to this question that fans (myself included) are burning to know!
The Six of Crows duology consists of Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom, which follows the adventures of a ragtag group (known as the Crows) led by Kaz Brekker.
This story occurs in the same world as the Grishaverse books (Shadow and Bone, Siege and Storm, and Rise and Ruin); however, this story takes place across the True Sea in the city of Ketterdam.
Personally, I LOVED the Six of Crows series!
Out of the two books, I do greatly prefer Six of Crows; however, there are some very satisfying moments between characters (wink wink) in the second book that did feed my fangirl soul.
However, is there a possibility that we might get a Six of Crows book 3? And what could that mean for our beloved characters? Let’s dive in!
Six of Crows Book 3 – What Do We Know?
Six of Crows begins with Kaz getting a job for the Crows that pays a great reward: thirty million kruge. The catch? There’s a high chance that they won’t return alive to reap the benefits.
Kaz enlists a ragtag team, which includes:
- Inej, the Wraith
- Jesper, the Sharpshooter
- Nina, a Grisha Heartrender
- Wylan, Son of a Merch (but currently Kaz’s demo)
- And, against his will, Matthias, a Drüskelle
This book follows them on their adventure across the sea, and is full of chaos, heists, revenge, morally grey characters, and lots of pining after one another (my personal favorite part hehe).
The Six of Crows series takes place in the same world as the other Grishaverse books, but it’s not directly connected.

The Crows were last seen in Rule of Wolves, the second book in the King of Scars duology, which occurs after both the Shadow and Bone trilogy and the Six of Crows duology.
Before the release of Rule of Wolves, Bardugo had mentioned the possibility of a third book being added to the Six of Crows series.
On Twitter in 2018, Leigh Bardugo posted:
This may not still be how she feels about the matter, however…
So, will there be a third Six of Crow’s book? Currently, no, there will not be a Six of Crows book 3. Leigh Bardugo did say that she left “big doors” open at the end of Rule of Wolves, so it is possible that in the future, Bardugo will write a third book for Six of Crows. However, as of now, she is not focusing on Grishaverse books.
I personally almost prefer there not to be a third installment in the Six of Crows series.
After losing beloved characters in Crooked Kingdom, my little heart cannot take any more characters dying, and I will throw hands if anything were to happen to Kaz or Inej!!!
The third book, to me, is not worth the risk of losing more characters. Truth be told, if a third book does end up coming out, I will be reading it, though!
Wait, Isn’t Kaz Brekker in Rule of Wolves?
It’s true! Kaz does appear in Rule of Wolves along with Inej, Jesper, Nina, and Wylan.
In a sort of weird way, this book acts as a third Six of Crows book, but the main focus is not on these characters. It instead follows Nikolai and the other main protagonist.
Would I prefer a book that follows just Inej and Kaz’s relationship? Yes! But that’s what fanfiction is for, I suppose…
So, No Six of Crows Book 3…Well, What Is New in the Grishaverse?
Yes, while it is very sad there won’t be a Six of Crows book 3 (at least any time soon), there’s still plenty of exciting updates in the Grishaverse!
Perhaps most notably is that the second season of the Shadow and Bone Netflix series is set to release March 16th, 2023!
Based on the added cast members, it’s safe to assume that the subplot that follows Kaz and company will be more similar to the book series (and is likely to use the Ice Court plot).
The paperback version of Rule of Wolves is also set to be released on March 9th, 2023, which I’m personally very excited about. I am not only a paperback girly but I’ve also got the other paperbacks and, you know, series on the shelf gotta match!!
The Six of Crows world may be quiet for now, but you never know what Bardugo has up her sleeve for the future.
