See the Grishaverse come to life on screen with Shadow and Bone, now a Netflix original series. All three books in Leigh Bardugo's New York Times-bestselling Shadow and Bone Trilogy are now available together in a beautiful paperback set. Soldier. Summoner. Saint. Follow Alina Starkov through Shadow and Bone, Siege and Storm, and Ruin and Rising as she discovers her dormant powers and is swept up in a world of luxury and illusion. As Alina struggles to fit into her new life, a threat to the kingdom of Ravka grows?one that will test old alliances and challenge the very limits of magic, one that will forge a leader from a frightened girl. Praise for The Shadow and Bone Trilogy: "This is what fantasy is for." Laini Taylor for The New York Times on Shadow and Bone "Set in a fascinating, unique world rich with detail, Shadow and Bone was unlike anything I've ever read.

Quick read. Was able to read all 3 books in less than a week. How the Sun Summoner battles The Darkling. Good character development. Definitely aimed at YA. ( )

Cross Hunger Games with Harry Potter and set it in world of Russian mythology and mystery; add vividly described real world scenery, truly scary threats and monsters, and “the boy and the girl” united in a mysterious past and bound to an even more mysterious future. The protagonist’s teenaged points of view are well-drawn (and definitely teenaged), and the antagonist is enjoyably dark and mysterious (though not always as mature as his position suggests). The storyline might seem sometimes predictable, but unpredictable locations and backstory drive the plot forward. There are mysteries to be solved, enemies to be overcome, and allies to be made in this well-drawn world of magic and power. I really liked the world-building and had to start each book as soon as the other was finished to find out what would happen next. Big books but quick reads and enjoyable.

Disclosure: I got them for Christmas and I enjoyed them. ( )

This trilogy is a gem I discovered while browsing Amazon one day. The first five chapters of the first book, Shadow and Bone were being offered for free. All the reviews were good, which prompted me to download it. The first chapters hooked me as a few of the pivotal characters are introduced and they enter "The Fold". Believe me, you will want to know what that is. The feelings of fear, unrequited love, overwhelming exhaustion and confusion, expressed by Alina Starkov, are easily conveyed to the reader. Within an hour, I was downloading the whole Grisha Trilogy.

The Grisha Trilogy has is all. A war, monsters, spies, an all powerful villain and a love story (or maybe two?). The author, Leigh Bardugo, creates a world that you can not only see in your mind's eye but also feel. The cold and brightness of the snow will have you drawing your sweater closer to you. Your fingers can almost stroke the richness and colors of the kafkas the Grisha proudly wear. And the treatment of the Grisha by the warring factions will leave you outraged and hoping they make it to Ravka. The plight of the protagonist, Alina Starkov will leave you breathless. I love a good book that not only will place their characters in jeopardy, but is not afraid to take that precarious step and eradicate characters we have come to know and may like. Characters who do more than exist in the periphery of the story. The antagonist, The Darkling, in spite his name, is not all darkness. Even when his actions are beyond the pale, it's hard to dislike him because we are made to understand what drives him. A few times as the story unfolds, I found myself hoping the Darkling and Alina wound up together. I thought the union would give the Darkling the balance he was lacking.

I have read this trilogy several times now. It never seems to grow tiresome. I'd definitely recommend the Grisha Trilogy to one and all. ( )

Disclaimer - I came at this the wrong way around having had the excellent Heist duology recommended to me, which I thoroughly enjoyed - I found myself wanting to know more about the Grisha world, and so read these. It is in essence Stormhound's story, but told form the point of view of one of a pair of orphaned twins. Set solely in Ravka, it also explores a lot more of about the Grisha's abilities and the politics within the kingdom. As is typical for a debuet author this is three short books, each no more than 250 pages, and they flow quickly from one to the next without much on the way of gap.

Alina and Mal have always been together, and Alina manages to suppress her potential for Grisha talent when the testers come by, so that they can join the army together. Even though she's desperately skinny, and Mal remains the focus of everyone's attention, always comfortable and always fitting in. However things change when their company crosses the Darkfold - a reigin of peril in the middle of Rashka, created when the first Grisha became too greedy and failed to control his power. Now it's filled with warped monsters and perpetual darkness, a peril for all who must cross from one side of Raska to the other. Of course their crossing goes wrong and they're attacked, just about to die Alina summons forth an intense light and their lives are spared. Alina (alone) is summoned to The Darling's command, and when it is found she does have Grisha powers she's sent to school to learn better control - so far so Harry Potter. But we're spared most of the school stuff, as the Darling has plans for her - to assist him in removing the peril of the Darkfold. All she needs is a special amplifier to increase her light summoning powers, and Mal the tracker is just the one to find it for her. A quick bit of politics and it's obviosu to the Darkling that the Fold is more useful to him as weapon, with Alina's "assistance" he can push it into neighbouring countries, and the threat to do so would mean peace across the whole reign, something it's not known for decades. Does the end justify the means? Despite being a war-torn orphen herself Alina refuses the chance, and so finds herself alone, out powered, and desperate not to be used as a tool.

It's not as gripping as the heist duology, although I cna't put my finger on why - partly the author is still getting to grips with her talent, and has been heavily edited down into shorter books which don't work so well. The characters don't quite shine, and there's too much reliance on the duex et machina of Mal's talent (even if it is explained away at the end). Partly I think it's because magic is inherently less interesting than the Wraith's physical abilities. But it's still a great epic fantasy, well told in an inventive world where the disruption of new technologies is always a concern to the old way of life.

There's plenty more to be told in this world, and I'd be fascinated to read more of the Suli for a start. ( )
