Crooked Kingdom: A Sequel to Six of Crows - Leigh Bardugo

I remember that I had likened Matthias to "a stick. In the mud. With random quips." in my review for the first book.  This was one of the reasons why I had a hard time liking him because he's so opposite from Kaz.

 

And we all love Kaz, right?

 

I didn't realize that that quality of our "stick-in-the-mud" would actually become so endearingly humorous.  And how much I'd actually adore it.
