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.

Shadow and Bone Review quote
Mesmerizing … shiver-inducing, of the delicious variety. This is what fantasy is for — Laini Taylor, author of DAUGHTERS OF SMOKE AND BONE * NEW YORK TIMES * A New York Times bestseller, it’s like The Hunger Games meets Potter meets Twilight meets Lord Of The Rings meets Game Of Thrones; basically epic magical fantasy but completely for grown-ups. * STYLIST * When I closed the covers of this book, late at night, I drifted into a vivid dream bursting with midnight blue keftas and beautiful – but blinding – white light. Leigh Bardugo is a master storyteller, who draws you into her richly-imagined world and refuses to release you… even after you’ve turned the last page. Shadow and Bone has occupied my thoughts – day and night – ever since I began it * FEED ME BOOKS NOW * Shadow and Bone is YA fantasy exactly how I like it: deep, epic and full of action and adventure. I fell in love with the story when I was only a few chapters in, and the many twists and turns that followed kept me hooked right until the end. I’m really glad I read this book and I’m even more glad that I have the sequel sat waiting for me. I have no idea where Leigh Bardugo is going with her story, but I can’t wait to find out. Read this if you’re a fan of fantasy – you won’t be disappointed! * WONDROUS READS * There is so much to love about this book… Leigh Bardugo knows her stuff. The pacing is superb, the climax is faultless, and the immaculate blend of fantasy, action and romance really did make this book ‘unputdownable’. * REALM OF FICTION *.
