Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

May 18, 2017 Jed @ Hughes Main
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Leigh Bardugo has had enormous success with her recent Six of Crows series, but Shadow and Bone is the first book in the earlier Grisha Trilogy set in the same world. The grisha are magic wielders, rare and prized in a land that resembles a fantasy version of Tsarist Russia. Alina Starkov, the hero, must learn to harness magical powers she never knew she had, while also navigating court intrigue, romance and her own past as an orphan. This book is appropriate for older teens and adults, and is a gripping read that makes a fantastical, foreign land and the people in it seem deeply real to readers.
