Publisher Comments:

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 his 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.

Shadow and Bone is the first installment in Leigh Bardugo's Grisha Trilogy.

Anna Falconer, August 28, 2015 (view all comments by Anna Falconer)
The opening novel to the trilogy, 'Shadow and Bone' by Leigh Bardugo is skillfully infested with plot twists and game-changers. This is one of those books that grabs you by the throat and yanks you in, (I promise it doesn't hurt that bad). I would buy it in a heartbeat if I didn't already own a copy. Bardugo is a fantastic wordsmith with a dangerous mind capable of imagining the greatest moments, lies, betrayals, and perfect-timings. I hope you fall in love with this series just as I did.
