MichelleS: I finished Shadow and Bone. Moving on to book two, I liked it that much. Maybe 4.5 stars? Only because half of this e-book was previews at the end, so it was over before I was ready! Great start to a new fantasy series (new to me) if anyone is looking for that. …Exactly my kind of read: smart, great dialogue, cool world building…
Tasha J: I read the first recently in a spin-off of the same world, Shadow and Bone, and loved it. I plan to have read all from that series before the airing on Netflix in April. Goals!
Tessa: My favorite genre! Fantasy Romance: I might remember more later… Like Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. *rolls eyes at herself* Can’t believe I forgot that. Her crows book continues in that world.
MichelleS: I am reading Shadow and Bone Book two. Why didn’t I go right into book two? It’s amazing.
About book #1:
The Grishaverse will be coming to Netflix soon with Shadow and Bone, an original series!
Enter the Grishaverse with Book One of the Shadow and Bone Trilogy by the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom.
Soldier. Summoner. Saint. Orphaned and expendable, Alina Starkov is a soldier who knows she may not survive her first trek across the Shadow Fold—a swath of unnatural darkness crawling with monsters. But when her regiment is attacked, Alina unleashes dormant magic not even she knew she possessed.
Now Alina will enter a lavish world of royalty and intrigue as she trains with the Grisha, her country’s magical military elite—and falls under the spell of their notorious leader, the Darkling. He believes Alina can summon a force capable of destroying the Shadow Fold and reuniting their war-ravaged country, but only if she can master her untamed gift.
As the threat to the kingdom mounts and Alina unlocks the secrets of her past, she will make a dangerous discovery that could threaten all she loves and the very future of a nation.
Welcome to Ravka . . . a world of science and superstition where nothing is what it seems.
