“Fast-paced and unpredictable, this debut novel will be a hit with readers who love dark fantasy.”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
I’m a big fan of YA fiction, and dystopian novels, so when someone recommended Shadow and Bone from the Grisha Trilogy to me a few weeks ago, it sounded interesting to say the least. One quiet evening at the end of a good book, I decided to download it to the Kindle and read a couple of chapters before bed.
Suddenly it was 3am!
You’re soon drawn in to Alina and Mal’s world, from peasants living in a mythical word of Ravka, captured as a cold, unforgiving landscape, with shadows of Tsarist Russia. The descriptions of the vast landscapes and travels across the unforgiving terrain make you feel as though you have ventured with them.
