Title: Shadow and Bone.
Author: Leigh Bardugo.
"The Shadow Fold, a swathe of impenetrable darkness, crawling with monsters that feast on human flesh, is slowly destroying the once-great nation of Ravka.
Alina, a pale, lonely orphan, discovers a unique power that thrusts her into the lavish world of the kingdom’s magical elite—the Grisha. Could she be the key to unravelling the dark fabric of the Shadow Fold and setting Ravka free?
The Darkling, a creature of seductive charm and terrifying power, leader of the Grisha. If Alina is to fulfill her destiny, she must discover how to unlock her gift and face up to her dangerous attraction to him.
But what of Mal, Alina’s childhood best friend? As Alina contemplates her dazzling new future, why can’t she ever quite forget him?
Glorious. Epic. Irresistible. Romance."
My Thoughts So Far:
I've heard such good things about Shadow and Bone, and decided to pick up...a LONG time ago. For some reason I just haven't been able to fit it into my reading schedule. But this month Shadow and Bone is Burn Bright's Book Club monthly read! I'm almost half way through, and just barely started it yesterday! I absolutely LOVE the main character; she's totally kick BUTT!
I'm dying to see how things turn out, and to EVEN get started on the second book!
Have you read this one? What did you think about it?
