Thank you Leigh, this was truly amazing! I got weak knees just reading about him and I admire Alina for not throwing herself at him.
I guess their ship sunk and ended up being shipwrecked in the end though. Pity, I certainly would have loved to read more of those intense and hot scenes.
He paused in the act of pulling on his gloves, and I pressed my lips together nervously. His mouth curved into a half smile.
I am, too. We always are. In all the other YA books the childhood friend always ends up being scorned, not in this one! Leigh actually managed to pull it off to give them a good and solid basis for a strong relationship.
I never read a YA book in which the best friend actually ended up being the main love interest. So, Queen Leigh, you have all my respect!!

True story. Also, there's a giveaway of a finished copy of Shadow and Bone! If I could wrap up my emotions about how I felt after reading Shadow and Bone and send them to you through my computer screen, I totally would.
I wish I could unread it just so I can go back and re-read it again for the first time. Yes, I loved it that much.
Now I've come to the part where I am supposed to describe to you the awesomeness that is Shadow and Bone and I'm finding that rather difficult to do.
Why is that? Is it because while reading a book you love your get so swept away with the story that you can't be bothered to take notes? Or perhaps it's the fact that you don't want to give away too much of the story?
You want other potential readers to go into the book blind, expecting little and gaining everything the story has to offer? I suspect it is a little of both for me and with that, I offer my sincerest apologies if you do not find this review helpful.
It is my hope, however, that my inability to do this book justice in my review speaks volumes in and of itself. Shadow and Bone follows the story of Alina Starkov, a remarkable young girl, who holds a power not even she realizes she has.
All her life she's never fit in. Not in the orphanage where she grew up alongside her best friend, Mal, nor in the First Army where she serves as a mapmaker.
In her world people of elite status with unique abilities, called Grisha, serve as nothing more than fanciful servants to the kingdom of Ravka.
One day, while protecting Mal, it is revealed that she too is Grisha with a very rare and sought after power: the ability to summon sunlight.
She soon finds herself in a very different world filled with adventure, betrayal, and a sinister plot that could destroy all of Ravka.
The book begins quickly immersing the reader into the kingdom of Ravka head on. Terms are thrown at the reader at a reasonable pace for a fantasy novel and for once I didn't immediately feel overwhelmed or the need to "play ketchup" with the characters.
I can tell Bardugo employed the rule of "show, don't tell" and I believe she did it well. I found myself hanging on the edge of my seat waiting for more of the world to be revealed to me.
There was never a dull moment reading Shadow and Bone ; no downtime for me to catch my breath. And I loved every minute of it!
I thought the plot was very well done and I got so caught up in the story that the plot twists just blew me away. I was so engrossed that by the time the climax hit I felt an intake of breath and couldn't tear myself away from the book for the duration of the read!
And the characters I loved them all to pieces! Alina is naive, candid, and feeble in the beginning, but she grows so much throughout the novel.
Yes, Yes! I know! Character development! It really does still exist in YA novels! Does she make mistakes? But she realizes them and she strives to be better.
I can see there is a lot of conflict in her character to come in the next two novels in the series and I am VERY eager to see how that is handled.
I also loved the Darkling. I can't really say much about him because I am NOT giving away any spoilers in this review--not even in a spoiler tag because I know how some of you are!
Just the right amount of intrigue and mystery. And Mal. Let's just say he is another love interest we can add to our swoon worthy list right next to Tucker Avery.
And you know what the worst part was? It caught me completely by surprise. I'd catch myself just walking around to find you, not for any reason , just out of habit, because I'd seen something that I wanted to tell you about or because I wanted to hear your voice.
I've risked my life for you. I've walked half the length of Ravka for you, and I'd do it again and again and again just to be with you, just to starve with you and freeze with you and hear you complain about hard cheese every day.
So don't tell me why we don't belong together," he said fiercely. I think it goes without saying I loved the writing. The descriptions were vivid, easy to visualize and thankfully, not overdone I'm really hoping there will be a map in the finished copy.
Please tell me there's a map waiting for me! The book is told through Alina's PoV, so we get a first hand account of the happenings.
And boy are there some happenings! I'll tell you one thing, Bardugo can write a kissing scene And the romance? Man, I just loved the romance.
It was so sweet and by the end it just tore at my heart! The moment our lips met, I knew with pure and piercing certainty that I would have waited for him forever.
I just love it! I'm really not sure what else to say about Shadow and Bone besides the obvious: it was awesome and you should read it.
If you are a fantasy lover, rejoice! If fantasy isn't your thing, still rejoice! Because this is a book that is sure to take you and your heart on a wild adventure this summer.

View all 71 comments. It's been a couple of weeks since I finished this, and I can't remember a single character name except for The Darkling.
This was a run-of-the-mill YA fantasy book. It wasn't bad, just bland. The characters, romance, and most of the plot were quite generic and almost forgettable.
Also, I've realized that fantasy written in first person is not my cup of tea. However, in the sea of It's been a couple of weeks since I finished this, and I can't remember a single character name except for The Darkling.
However, in the sea of medieval European-based fantasy series, this industrial Russian-inspired world totally stood out. I now understand why Leigh Bardugo chose to stay in this world for two more series.
I can't wait to see how she expands the universe and the magic system! In short: I only picked this up so that I can eventually get to Six of Crows.
I don't think I necessarily wasted my time as I understand the world more, but I'm not rushing to pick up the sequel. View all 17 comments. I can't believe I finally found time to write this review.
I finished the book a while ago but I'm so busy, my God. So let's start by saying that, despite the low number of stars, this book was a good book overall.
I will explain later why I took down 1. Let's start with the good stuff. For a while now this series has winked at me from my bookshelf.
I know the high around the writer Leigh Bardugo and I have long wanted to see what and why people love her books so much.
She is indeed a good writer. Her writing is flowing, interesting. And you don't realize how happy I was to understand that the names were in a Russian style.
Alina, Ivan, Genya, etc. It's a refreshing idea, I've never read about books based on it. Now I'll talk about the plot itself.
True, the plot reminds me of some books I have read in the past, but I do not judge it because there are quite a few people who are drawn to similar ideas.
I enjoyed the plot and that's what matters to me. The plot had some drawbacks. There were situations where I was in no mood to read because I was bored with reading it.
BUT, there were some interesting turns that brought my mood back to reading. There were excerpts where I told myself that this book has the potential to be really good if the writer gives up some boring stuff.
And by that I mean mostly the beginning. I was so bored with the beginning of the book. At least for the first 50 pages, I thought to myself, "And what's going on here?
Now I'll talk about the characters. Let's start with Alina- Alina was a refreshing character. She's not that pretty. She's not strong.
In fact, she's even pretty weak. She is terribly shy. She has an urge to be loved, and her desire to integrate and belong where she is.
She's a pretty realistic character overall. You can find such people in the real world - unlike main characters in other books.
Mal- A pretty confusing character. He doesn't have that much room in this book, if we don't refer to the many mentions and thoughts in Alina's mind, of course.
But to Alina he does, and a lot. Is he good? Is he bad? Is he in love with Alina, or is he playing himself to achieve some purpose?
Is what he brings out really true, or is he lying? So many questions - and no answers. Basically, in my opinion, it's beyond just a good or bad guy.
I can't be sure, because in the first book we have no answers to this question. But at least from what I understood from the first book - he has his will, his purpose.
And is it good or bad? It probably varies according to the way a person sees it. Genya- Excellent character. I loved her from the first moment she entered the book.
She seems to be realistic. No, that's not exactly the right word- but the right word doesn't come to my mind right now, so you'll probably have to settle with that.
She has an existing world around her, and although she doesn't like her place, she accepts it and survives.
I also liked the fact that she is beautiful and aware of it. I'm tired of pretty characters who are unaware of this fact, although clearly everyone tells her so.
In addition, I loved the combination between Alina and Genya. They can have amazing friendships. So why only 3.
As I mentioned before - the beginning has bored me significantly. And I wish I would say that the plot later in book was worth it I mean, it was good - but not great.
The characters as well, overall were good - but not so much, not all of them. If it weren't for The Darkling and a little of Genya, too - I guess I wouldn't have cared about the characters that much.
This is the end of the review, so if you don't want to be exposed to the spoiler - just stop here. The moment Alina realized that the power from the stag was created and controlled not only by the killing, but also by the mercy.
It was exhilarating. And not necessarily because I'm vegan and see mercy to the animals a pure thing. I was extremely excited by the way magic was not necessarily built on control created by evil and killing - but also by the power of good.
And love have a strong influence on nature and magic in nature. View all 6 comments. Feb 04, Emily May rated it liked it Shelves: fantasy , young-adult , , coverly-love.
Please note: this is not really a review. In fact, this may be my most useless non-review to date there have been a few and is actually better described as a random mish-mash of my thoughts and feelings on this book.
You know, I've wondered ever since Shadow and Bone was released last year whether I would fall into the camp of gushing, never-ending lo Please note: this is not really a review.
You know, I've wondered ever since Shadow and Bone was released last year whether I would fall into the camp of gushing, never-ending love for it I was prepared for it to go either way.
However, I find myself uselessly sitting somewhere in the middle, lonesomely twiddling my thumbs and pondering all the different things I liked but didn't love and disliked but didn't hate.
How very annoying of me. I mean, I didn't like Alina that much. She was okay. She was fine. But you know something is wrong when the heroine is merely "okay" and "fine".
I found her a touch a touch too much on the wimpy side for my liking, she was too eager to play the damsel in distress on multiple occasions but I've heard she gets better in the sequel.
Let's hope so. Admittedly, I only decided to read this now because of the hype surrounding the sequel so I have my fingers crossed that Siege and Storm can rid us of the problems I have with this series.
Especially the fact that this is quite a poor excuse for fantasy. Limited world-building, light fantasy-style background which is heavily diluted by romance, mean girls, bitchiness and seemingly useless tidbits of information about noble life.
This is like the chick-lit, high school version of fantasy, filled with characters who are supposedly hardcore warriors but spend much of the novel keeping their hardcore warrior hands disappointingly clean.
The roughest, most gruesome bit of this story is perhaps when a poor stag gets murdered. Which is really just depressing all round.
Thankfully, though, the novel's large amount of tame scenes did provide me with some entertainment and a few laughs.
There is a certain base addictive quality to Bardugo's writing that makes it incredibly easy to digest and even necessary to read on. Another negative - sorry - is the rather silly obsession with looks in the novel.
For one, I couldn't give a damn about the various vanities of the Grisha women; for another, it annoyed me how Alina seemed to equate her worth with her looks from the very beginning.
She denies her power can possibly exist because she isn't a luminous ball of hotness like the others.
But, as with good old plain Bella Swan, everyone falls in love with her anyway. To be honest, that is an unfair comparison because Alina - even with her faults - is a far more interesting character than Bella.
But still, get a grip on yourself. And douse yourself with some badassery so you can stop being such a wimp because so far this world is looking awfully like the disappointing one of Grave Mercy.
Also - is there a love triangle here? I'm not even certain what's happening. I kinda hope there is. Ha, bet you weren't expecting that!
But, you know, Darkling is really quite a sexy word, don't you think? And maybe Ms Bardugo hasn't got the whole fantasy thing down in this book but she sure knows exactly what she's doing with his characterisation.
He's dangerous, he's sexy, he likes to make out with you in secret rooms, he's arrogant with a little side order of hidden feelings to kick you right in the ovaries and the heart at the same time.
I suppose Mal is the safer and more sensible option and the one I'd be telling Alina to go for if this was the real world and she was a friend of mine.
But - yay! The way I feel about him is similar to how I felt about Ido in Eona but hopefully this won't have a similar conclusion.
Thank you if you actually read my non-review. If anyone knows how I can acquire an ARC of the sequel, please tell me and I shall be forever grateful.

So far the grisha trilogy feels darker and more serious than SoC as well. I'm really liking Alina more than I have liked other female leads of recent and was pleased this book didn't end with her being the weeping willow I've grown tired of.
Beard of Moses. All the heart eyes. I may have to just binge the rest of the series because I just gotta know what happens before I start searching for spoilers.
Really glad I have Kainat and Bentley to hold my hand through these tough times y'all. I apologize for waiting so long to read these and not listening to the masses.
View all 60 comments. Mostly due to the great book slump I have been experiencing for the last 6 months, but also because I knew these were big and many books and the commitment to finish them all off would be grand.
But then a marvelous announcement came to pass Netflix is picking this series up. I was so fucking happy, even though I hadn't the faintest clue about the series.
And that's when I knew I had to start now with it, so I would have time to finish it before anything Netflix releases, commences.
And now here I am, off to the long journey of the Grisha world. 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.
First of all my general opinion about this book A solid 4 star book , a start to a beautiful universe and the even more hyped Six of Crows duology I've been dying to claw my hands into.
I did my research before starting reading about this world I know the Six of Crows duology happens after the Grisha trilogy and I had to read this one first not to spoil myself.
I resisted opening up the first book in the Six of Crows duology and started here. I don't regret it, but I have to admit, I feel a bit underwhelmed by this book.
Leigh Bardugo is an incredible writer, her world building is magnificent, the "magic" system unique and the descriptions luxurious and incredible.
I was extremely confused, at first, with all the different castes and the new words, but I guess it's more down to the fact that I haven't read a single fantasy book in months.
But I got over it easily, and I was much more eager to explore this massive new universe. The problem with me was in the characters, the love triangle and the tropes they all served.
Alina The main character of this book is a trope by herself. The orphan, ordinary girl , who pines for her hot best friend from her childhood who doesn't even bat an eye on her.
The "ugly" , insecure girl, who doesn't miss a chance to tell us how gorgeous every one around her is and how out of place she feels, but in reality that ain't the truth.
And after everything Yes, the usual trope, which was good in But I didn't mind her. She had her moments, and I enjoyed her character much more that I would have imagined.
The romance I feel I'm too old for this kind of romance and it was intended for people much younger than me. Which is true, I should have read this book back when it was released, and I'm sure I would have found the romance more appealing.
And yet the romance is full of tropes, the bad guy, the good guy and the ordinary girl who isn't ordinary at all both of them pine for. When the bad guy in disguise seduces the ordinary girl in disguise, the good guy emerges to take her away and make her his.
Yes, ok, whatevs. I enjoyed the plot much more than the romance, that's for sure. The plot Yes, it was predictable, at times.
Yes, sometimes the choices the characters made made me want to scream at them. Yes, the pacing could have been a bit quicker.
But you know. I read this book in 2 days and I wouldn't leave it down for God's sake. I was sucked into this world and consumed by it that I didn't want to leave the book down.
Which is a win, on the writer's part. Because this book, in spite of its flaws and tropes and weak moments, it grasps your attention by the balls.
In total, this book was what I expected it to be, a very good start to a promising series. It gave me truly momentous moments and yet other not so momentous but what I got from it is that I want to read more.
And this is the most amazing part. We'll see each other again, soon, with the next book in the series soooo, till the next book in the Grisha trilogy K BYE!
View all 21 comments. Halfway through reading it, I realized I was really enjoying it And I knew I would want to read the rest of the series And then I saw how pretty the covers were AND they were cheaper than the kindle versions at the time of this review.
So, of course, I bought the last two books in the physical. And of course, God forbid I have an unfinished set. So much for saving money. Nice work, Val.
Anynonsense, this book has been reviewed at length, so I'll keep this brief. This was for me what I though the first Court book would be.
Meaning that it read fast and the story kept me entertained. I was never bored and things never felt tedious. Everything flowed and I was interested cover to cover.
I say interested - and not enthralled, mind you, thus why four and not five stars. Also, I could have done with some stronger world building to start.
I have nothing else to add that thousands of other reviewers I'm sure mentioned, so I'll stop here. I really like Bardugo's writing style and look forward to book two.

I loved it from page one. One incredible journey. I thought, with my knowledge of the English language at that time that picking a page book up as a first read in English was going to work out well for me.
Well, not exactly… I struggled with that book because of how the writing was, in my opinion, complex and all those new terms that I loved it from page one.
I literally had a dictionary next to me and searched through it one or two times per new page turned.
So, yeah, I did not have a great experience even if I ended up enjoyed the book. It in fact took me three weeks to read it when, you all know, I now finish a book in 1, 2 or 3 days—exceptions apply.
I was reading so slowly. SO slowly. The point is I did know about Shadow and Bone at that time as well but was very afraid of not rightly comprehending the world-building since it seemed to me very complex, just by reading the blurb.
Yesterday, though, I finally felt like starting it, even if in my interior I was wondering if I was truly ready and going to understand it well.
But, also, Leigh Bardugo did a great job introducing it to us along with its elements and I hope she will surprise us with many other new things related to the world-building in the sequels because it is amazing.
Alina is the kind of main character I love reading about in a fantasy book. Yes, she could have been more fierce, strong and clever, but was is wonderful still and her vulnerable part actually made me connect with her and relate to her more than I usually do with main characters.
I enjoyed seeing her character development and, when she felt sad, I surprisingly felt her feelings too.
The kind of relationship he and Alina have is unique and true and definitely beautiful. Although, as much as I may have loved Mal, I did have a perference for the mysterious and dangerous Darkling.
He did not turn out to be as lethal as I would have liked The writing was excellent and I'm definitely applauding the author in my mind.
She is one talented author of whom I will read every work, that is for sure. Have you read this book? What are your thoughts on it?
If you haven't, then, believe me, it is one you will want to read. Art source. View all 3 comments. If I could give this series 6 stars..
I would. One of my ALL time favorite series. I get so sad when I see people totally skipping this to go to Six of Crows which I loved, don't get me wrong.
True, it isn't for everyone.. I love everything about this series. For those of you who would like to take the Darkling with you in the car on the way to work in the mornings, or for those of you who want to get a feel for the legit badassery that is this series..
I don't want to go over the details of the plot in this review -- because I went into this not knowing one darn thing about it so every single page was a surprise for me!
What I will say is this There is action, magic, romance, intrigue.. 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.
